Lots of options for breakfast, all good. Doors close on the dot, though, so don't wait til end!
Wish the public spaces included couches, etc. to relax by bar
Hot tub and sauna facilitues were grear as well as friendly wait staff in restaurant and bar
Rooms were very hot so there was a lot of condensation. No tea bags in our room and staff didn't seem to know where to find them.
Went for breakfast in the morning, would recommend labels to breakfast items, found it a bit strange having hot soup for breakfast (next to porridge). Serving spoon missing from scrambled eggs. On the dot 10 o'clock staff began removing all spoons etc from food items, even though a few guests were still serving themselves. Would have been nice to simply inform those guests that breakfast was closing. Overall hardly any interaction with staff and guests. Did like seeing tables cleaned with hot water, although did find it a bit odd seeing staff walking around with big buckets of water with around 20 pax still having breakfast. Did find reception staff a bit too casual dresswise as most other staff was wearing uniforms or some clothing items with Stracta logo on.
I arrived with a friend in the afternoon of friday 4th October. Found signage to the hotel to be quite limited and almost missed the entrance from the highway. Check-in quite smooth and room was located close to reception/bar. Found hairs on the duvet cover and small residus of sand on the floor, otherwise room was quite neat. Did expect better option of soap in the bathroom but only option was generic soap in the shower.
Location was good for seeing the Northern lights and the South Coast.
Breakfast at this place was super. If you can't find something to eat here, you're too picky. Really very nice; loads of choices. [The waffle iron might need replacing as too slow, but still made good waffles.] Lots of fresh food as well. The service here was terrific (including their northern lights wake up calls). They made the hotel we stayed at in Vik look very sad comparatively, especially in regard to FRIENDLY service. Restaurant also good. [BTW, horseback riding just steps away was delightful.]
The only SMALL thing which could have been slightly better (not really a big deal) is that there is not enough sitting areas outside your room but not at the bar, especially if it is too cold outside. Although the hot tub and sauna can make up for that. Rooms are small but that seems common in Iceland; these were not that small and were comfortable enough. Although we wish all places in Iceland would give more towels, especially since the showers don't have lips. [Remember this isn't a negative about THIS hotel only.]
