Exellent hotel

New, very clean, nice design, excellent staff, comfortable rooms, excellent facilities, good food. Very well located for all south coast visits (waterfalls, glaciers, Golden Circle, Vik etc). Petrol station and supermarket just over the road.

The staff at the Stracta hotel were superb. So welcoming, eager to help, and great fun to chat to. They made the stay the great experience that it was. Food was good, cosy bar area, chance to see (potentially) northern lights from the outdoor hot tubs. Room decor was minimal but have what you need, and they were very clean. They haven’t been open long but I foresee them doing well. I plan to go back!

Very good especially the food

Nice very modern hotel. This is a new hotel open for around one year. Facilities very good although we did not take up the front desk recommendation of using the hot tubs and sauna (way too cold outside for us). Have to say the food was excellent, we tried the a la carte the first night (limited choice) then the buffet second night, both times the food was really good. All in all I would recommend this hotel both for location (we used it as a base to drive North and West for Gulfoss, Geyser and Thingviller and the next day East for Seljalandfoss, Skogafoss, Eyjafjallajokull and Vik), facilities, food and best of all prices.

Lovely hotel situated in the middle of nowhere makes the perfect location for Northern Lights viewing, and if you miss them, lounging in a super-clean private hot tub in the frosty cold night makes up for it. Room was the cleanest we’d ever seen, with toasty comforters, a towel warmer in the bathroom and new bathrobes and slippers. Kitchen was clean and basic, and decor was no-frills. The lobby was adorable at Christmas-time, and the restaurant serves some of the best food in the area for dinner. Staff were friendly and helpful, and best of all, your private hot tub stays running the whole day!

We loved our stay here! Customer service was very warm and friendly, and super accommodating. We ended up going to the restaurant about the same time they were closing, and they still brought out food for us, and didn’t rush us at all. Rooms are super clean with a wet bathroom (open shower). Hot tubbing under the stars was wonderful. Thank you! We’ll definitely return on our next trip to Iceland.
