Pros: Hotel is in a great location west of the Glacier Lagoon. Perfect place to break up our drive back from East Fjords. Hotel had just been open a year. Not crowded while we were there and 2 for 1 happy hour drinks! Modern decoration, clean and comfortable.
Pros: The hotel is clean and modern. staff was friendly and the included breakfast was huge and delicious. Tons of parking and comfortable rooms. It was only 20 minute drive to our glacier tour in the morning.
Cons: The hotel restaurant was way more expensive than we predicted forcing us to try to find food elsewhere, which is no easy task. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere. Additionally there is no entertainment or other facilities than your room, the restaurant, and the common area. But it worked out because we only needed it for a night to rest before our tour.
