The room and common area (where they had free self serve coffee, a big plus for us) where the rooms were located was very nice. We had the first room in off the entrance but did not notice any noise. The location for vising the glacier lagoon was perfect. Their farm is right there and there are good views (ok... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel which is so far out in the middle of nowhere! Clean, quiet, new (rm #58) free wifi, great breakfast included with home made breads still warm! We ate dinner at the restaurant and it was excellent. The warm apple cake was the best dessert we had in Iceland! Great place!!

We stopped here to be close to Jokarlsulon and the Diamond Beach. After we checked in and ate a wonderful meal at the restaurant, my daughter and I left the others to rest while we returned to the Diamond Beach for some time lapse photos of ice in the surf. The hotel was great in all respects. Clean, comfortable, modern,... More

Very nice location. Nice room except that it was located close to the "Staff Area" which was loud late into the night with a bathroom right at head level. Also a terrible odor from the shower drain made the room smell very unpleasant. There is an excellent restaurant on premise. Ate dinner there three nights and it was very tasty.... More

We were looking forward to our stay at the Hali country hotel. We are currently on our 2nd night and the smell in our first room was so bad we changed to the front where our view is the cars in the parking lot. While it's a bit better it's still smells damp and moldy. The staff are young adults... More

What has happened we really dont know, but I talked to my staff and ask them to take good care of this. We are in brand new building and we painted every room again this year... More

I had a great experience staying at the Hali country hotel. The rooms were very nice, cozy, and quiet. The only issue we experienced during our stay was that construction on the new building was happening right outside our window - starting at 8am. We were hoping to sleep in that day, but that didn't exactly work out for us.... More

Very nice hotel located near to the main road and only 5-10 minutes drive away from Jokulsarlon lagoon. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. We got the room with ocean view. The breakfast was pretty tasty.

1) Location was a bit far away from the golden circle. 2) But the people and travelers there are amazing, most are sharing information where to catch northern lights and sharing photograph at the living quarter. 3) Free coffee was a plus point. 4) Room was amazingly clean and equipped with necessary amenities Be warned, bring your own food (who...

If you're planning on visiting the South East Coast of Iceland and in particular Jokulsarlon this is the best place to stay. This family run business right down to the raising of their lamb and the catching of Arctic Char for your dinner is for me the real Iceland. They serve great food and attached to the restaurant is a... More

My family of 6 stayed in one of the "little yellow cottages", and it was an amazing stay. The area is simply breathtaking with and ocean on one side of you and dramatic mountains on the other.
