The hotel looks a bit harsh on the outside but inside it's the typical Scandinavian feel: efficient use of space, trimmed from everything you won't need. When asking about or booking excursions staff was extremely helpfull. People in Iceland are fluent in English which makes communicating easy. Breakfast was typically Icelandic, tasty and healthy. You feel a closeness with and respect for nature everywhere.
The excursions we took were a trip to the Geyshers, whale watching and the Blue Lagoon. The first excursion showed the impressive nature on Iceland. The second showed nature at its most vulnerable and the 3rd speaks for itself (hard to explain). In 2 restaurants you can eat puffin and/or whale which weird, especially after the excursion.
For dinner it's best to go to the center and try Icelandic dishes (fresh fish, clams, shrimps), they're honest and tasty.
Visiting Iceland is an experience you won't ever forget: from your arrival until departing you're treated as a guest and a friend, landscapes are beyond imagination.
To me it's time well spent.
