This old fashioned country hotel has large triple rooms(did not see a double, so don't know how large these are), bathtub and lots of windows. It has a bar/breakfast area with a pub feel, lots of interesting wall displays, a pool tables, sun room and large screen TV, something for everyone, plus the owner's antique car collection is scattered around...

Had three nights here, while we explored this wonderful island. We were upgraded to a suite with the most wonderful view of the snow covered mountains. Room really warm and water hot. The carpet quite soiled at the doorway. Breakfast was quite adequate, with waffle maker as a nice addition. Sean on reception was very informative and knowledgeable, friendly and...

Stayed one night on arrival into airport as it was on the way to Lake Myvatn. They have a system for key collection at night (I arrived 1am). Room was huge and like new, just faultless. Quite. Good parking. Breakfast included. For the price - given the country - a bargain

Hotel Laxnes was comfortable, with some quirky and whimsical furnishings. It felt much more Icelandic than larger hotels in Rekjavik where I have previously stayed, with a comfortable bar and dining area, and was quite charming. The view from our window was lovely. It could use a little freshening up. Our rooms (9 and 10) also could have used a...

We arrived for a one night stay relatively late. Very easy to check in and we were upgraded to a suite which had an amazing view of the mountains. Breakfast was good and everyone was very friendly. Would definitely go back

Myself and my boyfriend booked a week long holiday in Iceland for our first anniversary, whilst looking at hotels we decided to stay at Laxnes for its rustic charm as I am not a big fan of all glass and white modern hotels you find in Reykjavik. We emailed Shaun the hotel manager about arranging our transfers and he told...
