We stayed at Hotel Gullfoss for two nights in March 2012 and had a very pleasant stay. The key thing is its location, as a keen photographer I was up early for pre-dawn shots and being only 3 minutes from Gullfoss and 7-8 minutes from Geysir you really could not get a better location.
The staff were friendly and helpful, a BIG THANKS to the lady (I am afraid I do not know her name) who one evening gave a very quiet tap on our door about 10.30 as she knew I wanted to see the Northern Lights to let me know they were over head. She then spent the next 60-90 minutes with the guests offering tea / coffee to keep people warm as the skies turned green above us, really kind.
The hotel itself is a little old but that gives it character. The rooms are a reasonable size, basic but clean, the bathroom was small but the shower was good which is the most important thing to me. One plus side are the two hot tubs, most importantly they are right by the back door so you're only in the cold (snow) for a couple of seconds and there is a fence to hold off the wind - really enjoyed it. Overall the place feels like it could do with a little rejuvination but its perfectly acceptable, I would happilly stay here again.
