Super friendly, quiet, calm, clean. Amazing base to explore south west Iceland. Great breakfast, dinner and bar area. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. So close to Gullfoss falls and the geysirs. Easy access to beautiful scenery, Reykjavik and the lagoons

Hotel Gullfoss is the perfect spot for enjoying an Icelandic break in the heart of the most amazing countryside. A very clean, well run hotel, friendly team for whom nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is an hours drive from Reykjavic past some of the most interesting attractions to visit. 5 minutes from The Geysir, 2 minutes from Gullfss...

This remote hotel is perfectly situated if you want to see the three Golden Circle attractions. Easily found off the road between Geysir and Gullfoss. There is a reasonably-sized car park. Make sure you look out for the resident black dog who is quite excitable and runs to greet moving vehicles! The hotel looks brand new. It is modern and...

About dinner, nothing much to shout about and the food took ages.

Stayed here in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights and it did not disappoint. Good hotel with comfy beds and substantial continental breakfast. It has a restaurant and is licenced. The bonus was seeing the aurora very little light bleed.

Hotel Gullfoss is a nice hotel especially if you want an isolated place to watch the nothern lights. The rooms are quite big and new. The bathroom is big enough. Breakfast is limited but decent. A very good choice for the area.

Location is a very short drive away from Gulfoss and marked by signs on the main road. Stayed in the newer wing. Rooms were spacious, very well appointed and designed, and TV had surprising amount of English channels! Noise insulation is superb. Restaurant was closed when we there (off season?) We had to drive out to eat at Geysir (which...

A deliberate decision to stay at Hotel Gullfoss given its proximity to Gullfoss itself and its distance from the other tourist spots back down the road. Our room was in the new section of the hotel, and we were very impressed by the comfort, style, warmth, and quietness. Obviously a lot of thought had gone into the design and construction...
