Hótel Gígur

Hotel in Southern Mývatn

Gígur's stylish contemporary look doesn't hide the fact that rooms are small, even by Icelandic standards. To compensate, there's friendly service, a prime lakeside location in Skútustaðir and ace views. Easily the hotel's best feature is its superb restaurant (mains 2800kr to 5500kr), one of the area's best. Regional fare includes perfect pan-fried trout and grilled lamb fillet; finish with rhubarb crumble and blueberry ice cream.
