This collection of rooms and suites creeps up the banks of the Hvalfjordur or "whale fjord", which flows down to form Iceland's highest waterfall. There are 22 split-level rooms and some larger suites to choose from, but the best are the six new villas, which come with broad decks, private hot tubs, built-in kitchens and designer furniture. Elsewhere, there's an honesty bar, restaurant and lounge with weird and wonderful artefacts, collected by the owners on their travels.
