Hotel Edda Storutjarnir Jul 03, 2008
A lot of schools in Iceland are run on a boarding basis, and in the summer when the schools close they are opened up as Edda Hotels. Really popular budget option, and we had tried to book a few along our route, but they were all full.

We had booked here for out planned trip to see whales from Husavik. Comes up in the searches for accomodation for Husavik, but in reality it is practically half way between Husavik and Akureyri.

Had a fraught time trying to find it, as the map location we had been given showed it a lot closer to Husavik, and we were left driving the main road wondering how far to give it, when we eventually found it. Website is now updated to give directions and it 50km from Husavik and about 30 minutes drive.

After the long day, and the detour to find it, it was after 9pm before we got there and the restaurant was closed. There was a shop in the foyer, and we did manage to get some sandwiches, crisps,sweets and drinks.

We had booked two rooms, as they all appear to be twin rooms, for two nights. Quite spacious, with room to move about between the beds and room obviously for students to work during term time.

Breakfast was great,and the kids loved making their own waffles.

For the second night, we made sure we were back to the hotel in plenty of time for dinner. Being part of the school you could use the swimming pool and gymnasium, and there were a few guys playing basketball here.

Restaurant was suprisingly good, definately more a restaurant than a school canteen and the food was great, though that may be in part to having missed out on a meal the previous day.

Nothing wrong with the hotel, only the location is a bit out of the way, but if you know that in advance it shouldn't really be an issue. Close to Godafoss, and about 30minute drive from Myvatn,Husavik and Akureyri, so may be a good place to base yourself for a few days in the North East Of Iceland.
