Pros: Second visit to HR and every bit as good as remembered. Gracious staff, beautiful food, stunning views. A wonderful way to spend Christmas.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I cannot say enough about the staff at the Hotel Ranga. Everyone made you feel like one of the family attentive to all your needs. THe front desk was specifically informative about day trips and restaurants. AND we saw the Northern Lights, beautiful
Cons: We would have like more vegetarian options on the menu.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Spectacular location and although close to Route 1 you feel very remote. Very smooth check in and all staff provided excellent service. Rooms were large and very well equipped with quality items. (Although our patio door leading to hot tub did lock us out of our room ! Mentioned this at reception and they apologised for not telling us this may happen). Appreciated the complimentary drink before dinner all guests receive. Our evening meal was outstanding with all dishes being very well presented and tasted as good as they looked. The hotel owner greeted us in the bar for a quick chat but also visited us at the table to ensure we were enjoying our meal. Breakfast was a buffet and had plenty of options including variations of a cooked meal. We visited Hotel Rangá a few years ago and the high standards then have now been exceeded. Love this hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay was fabulous - the meals (dinner and breakfast) were wonderful - best breakfast we had on our week-long trip. We got the wake-up call for the aurora (faint but visible), though I wish they had turned out the parking lot lights to see it better. The location is great - isolated but an easy stop between Golden Circle and southern coast. Great staff as well, and we appreciated the free drink with our check-in!
Cons: Nothing!

9.6 Excellent

7.0 Good
Pros: Personal service, maybe due to the fact we were the only ones staying there. Great breakfast. Close location to Hestheimar stables (not the same company though) for riding. Cabin was spacious.
Cons: Cabin could have been serviced/checked better, one radiator was leaking on the floor in the bathroom. There was an outdoor jacuzzi but no facilities to change clothes or anything if you're staying in a cabin. The distance between the cabins and the main building where the breakfast is served is a bit long.

7.9 Good
Pros: Great location and modern room, very clean
Cons: Not a friendly welcome, after a 6 hour drive ( arriving just after 8pm ) we were told the kitchen was private and we could not cook any food. We asked if we could use a kettle which was not possible although we were allowed hot water from the coffee machine ... Luckily we had a pot noodle. After visiting many guesthouses on a few visits to Iceland it was the only place to not have use of the kitchen facilities. We were happy to pay for any food if it was available but was not able to. A real shame as the guesthouse is a great place to stay and very comfortable and clean.

He asked if we had dinner yet (we hadn't) he asked what we wanted (limited menu: soup salad, fish and lamb) we made our choices and he asked for 15 mins to get a head start on cooking and to join him back in the dining room. I had soup (tomato) and fish and my husband got the lamb, everything was amazing. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. I had homemade yogurt and coffee for breakfast the following morning.

Pros: This beautiful Icelandic horse farm is situated in the middle of nowhere, making it the ideal getaway! The home cooked food is lovingly made, the setting is stunning, and the rooms are cute and cosy! We travelled around Iceland so only stayed here for a couple of nights, but I would happily stay here for a holiday! The breakfast buffet is wonderful, and there is a hot tub and sauna, so you can relax under the stars before bed! They also keep a lookout for the spectacular Northern Lights and will give you a knock so you dont miss them! We were lucky enough to see them every night dancing above us in the darkness - a magical sight, on my birthday, that I will always remember! The staff are so warm and friendly, you will not want to leave! Thank you Hotel Laekur for such a wonderful birthday stay!
Cons: That we didnt stay even longer!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: very pleasant stay, nice rooms, convenient facilities including sauna and Jacuzzi, very good food, very nice family running the hotel. wished I could have stayed longer than just one night
Cons: considering the hype around northern lights, it would be very appreciated if a guaranteed wake up call could be offered (and not only if someone from the family happens to see the lights at night). I believe it should be possible to team up with other hotels in the area and have a live monitoring for the guests.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location. We saw salmon jumping in the river and wildlife around.Beautiful spot! We had a car so town was close for us.
Cons: Missed turnoff first time and had to return........minor problem
6.7 Good
Pros: Liked the great room, the fact that it was right on the river and it had a hot tub.(it was way too windy to use and was not sure where to get towels for it) There was a coffee bar in the dining room with cookies. . Very clean. They had votive candles lit lining the hallway where our room was. Nice touch with very nice scent. Parking was very handy.
Cons: No coffee with hot pot in your room. The room was very simple...absolutely no frills. Beds too soft as were the pillows. Two Asian sisters own? Or run the place. One speaks little English. The older sister showed us our room, explaining to us the window was open to bring in fresh air. Not sure if she was being truthful. Window was open because (as we discovered) the room is HOT!! We could not find the thermostat and we looked! Could not keep the window open because it was storming! Plus, no soap in the dispenser in the shower. Our biggest problem: we wanted something light to eat that evening. There were men eating in the dining room with what looked like a buffet. My husband asked the younger sister(who spoke little English) about the buffet. She said,’ yes, eat. Get what you want. No problem’ . As we were eating, we realized the men in the dining hall were there for a fishing tournament and the buffet was specifically for them which they paid for. We felt bad. We ate very little. The older sister came in and told us she would have to charge us. I understood. However, the next day she charged us $80!! The more I thought about it the madder I got. The fishermen had paid for that buffet for so many men....if anything they could have requested $$ from us. I don’t believe the two women lost any $$ over it. I believe they made a nice chunk of change on us. The breakfast was not included, but I paid on line $19 for each of us for breakfast when I made the reservation. It’s not worth it. The bacon was half cooked and cold. My husbands eggs were cold, mine barely lukewarm. There were some cold pastries, cheese, cold baked beans right out of the can. Was not impressed.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Excellent breakfast, very helpful host and superb location with view to Hella and Eyjafjallajökull - the sunrise was magnificient

Pros: Personal service, maybe due to the fact we were the only ones staying there. Great breakfast. Close location to Hestheimar stables (not the same company though) for riding. Cabin was spacious.
Cons: Cabin could have been serviced/checked better, one radiator was leaking on the floor in the bathroom. There was an outdoor jacuzzi but no facilities to change clothes or anything if you're staying in a cabin. The distance between the cabins and the main building where the breakfast is served is a bit long.

Pros: Hot tube in the backyard, perfect for star gazing at night, you might even get the company of the farm horses. The cottage is warm and cosy and you can cook your meals in the kitchen. Totally worth it!

Pros: It was a really lovely stay in one of the cottages. And thanks to the reception guy who prepared the hot tub for us. We can highly recommend this accommodation! The cottage was nice and super clean with an amazing view.
7.9 Good
Pros: Great location and modern room, very clean
Cons: Not a friendly welcome, after a 6 hour drive ( arriving just after 8pm ) we were told the kitchen was private and we could not cook any food. We asked if we could use a kettle which was not possible although we were allowed hot water from the coffee machine ... Luckily we had a pot noodle. After visiting many guesthouses on a few visits to Iceland it was the only place to not have use of the kitchen facilities. We were happy to pay for any food if it was available but was not able to. A real shame as the guesthouse is a great place to stay and very comfortable and clean.

Pros: I cannot say enough about the staff at the Hotel Ranga. Everyone made you feel like one of the family attentive to all your needs. THe front desk was specifically informative about day trips and restaurants. AND we saw the Northern Lights, beautiful
Cons: We would have like more vegetarian options on the menu.

Pros: Spectacular location and although close to Route 1 you feel very remote. Very smooth check in and all staff provided excellent service. Rooms were large and very well equipped with quality items. (Although our patio door leading to hot tub did lock us out of our room ! Mentioned this at reception and they apologised for not telling us this may happen). Appreciated the complimentary drink before dinner all guests receive. Our evening meal was outstanding with all dishes being very well presented and tasted as good as they looked. The hotel owner greeted us in the bar for a quick chat but also visited us at the table to ensure we were enjoying our meal. Breakfast was a buffet and had plenty of options including variations of a cooked meal. We visited Hotel Rangá a few years ago and the high standards then have now been exceeded. Love this hotel.

Pros: great breakfast, warm and welcoming atmosphere
Cons: This is definitely more of a nice lodge than a luxury hotel. Great rustic retreat, but overpriced in my opinion for what it is.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay was fabulous - the meals (dinner and breakfast) were wonderful - best breakfast we had on our week-long trip. We got the wake-up call for the aurora (faint but visible), though I wish they had turned out the parking lot lights to see it better. The location is great - isolated but an easy stop between Golden Circle and southern coast. Great staff as well, and we appreciated the free drink with our check-in!
Cons: Nothing!
