We were in the new wing, which is very nice with wide hallway. The location is also excellent, between Gullfoss and Geysir. The dining room is lovely, but meals are expensive. Typical breakfast, but no real orange juice....?

We loved the chic, newly renovated room. Very clean and comfortable. Very easy to find-- just down the road from Geyser and Gulfoss. Much needed respite after a long travel day! Would definitely recommend to a friend.

We stayed two nights at the hotel in the newer wing. The room was very clean and comfortable. It was nicely furnished and quiet. Staff were friendly. The breakfast provided was very nice with both hot and cold items. Overall a very pleasant two nights.

We stayed here for one night and got a room in the renovated section. It was very clean with a comfortable bed. The food was simply cooked and delish. I loved that it was all made on premise right down to dessert. There's a walking path to Gulfoss along the river. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed our first 2 nights on a Naturetrek tour here. The rooms are functional, but very comfortable and clean. We thought the food was good with beautifully cooked fish accompanied by rice and salad. Certainly the breakfast buffet had a wider choice than some of the others we experienced elsewhere in Iceland. A special thank you to the member...

Nice hotel within a short drive of the falls at Gullfoss. Hotel is clean, rooms are hot, staff are very helpful and chatty. My only complaint is that my lamb at dinner was so chewy I couldn't eat it, and it had a dreadful amount of fat on it. I have had lamb a lot in Iceland, and this was...

This is a very comfortable place to stay while visiting Iceland. The place is modern, sober, clean and has very good food. For breakfast there are scrambled eggs and fresh batter for waffles. You also get the usual choice of cold cuts and cheese, freshly baked bread. The dinner menu is somehow short but everything we tried was very good....

We had a room in the brand-new wing. Very well-appointed and comfortable. TV in room, good wifi. Our view was of the parking lot and some construction equipment -- still working on the renovations. The dining room is beautiful and modern, with lovely views of the valley. Breakfast was a notch above some of the other places we stayed in...

We wanted to visit the falls before and after the tour buses and staying here made this possible. We had a beautiful room in the newer section with great view of the area. I walked to falls one morning along the river with dramatic views of canyon. Wait staff were super nice and helpful too. .

Nice and welcoming reception upon registering. Rooms were simple but comfortable. Best sleep so far in Iceland. Our room was on the valley side. We had dinner in the dining room. Delicious soup and fish entree. Lovely views. Nice service. Breakfast was exceptional with high quality cold cuts and cheeses, extra special little sausages - not run of the mill....
