Lovely family run hotel. Very small hotel with about 20 rooms in total but a great location with about an hour walk away from Gullfoss waterfall. Staff are very friendly and willing to help with a nice small lounge area and two great hot tubs. Food was suprising good and all courses were provided very cheaply... Bathroom was clean and nice too

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with friends

Perfect location for the falls, just 5 minutes drive away.

The view from the hotel and half of the rooms is just breathtaking. Hottubs, friendly staff and owner, free wifi, reasonably priced dinner, and a good selection for breakfast. What more could you want? Oh getting a tad drunk on Viking beer in the evening...!

Room Tip: Pick an odd number room (they face the good view)

This small family run hotel is next to the amazing Gullfoss waterfalls and therefore very isolated. We were part of a tour group that stopped for one night (at short notice after our itinerary changed due to weather). The rooms were fine but a bit tired as if they could do with a refurbishment, but everything was clean and worked fine.

Our evening meal of salmon was well cooked and presented. The bar was expensive, as you would expect in Iceland, but seemed a bit pricier than normal.

All the staff were very friendly.

Great small hotel near the famous Gullfoss waterfalls and Great Geysir is a 10 minute-drive away. As we had full days activities I never saw the place in daylight, but after all the cold, snow, winds and exciting activities it was nice to get back to a warm and welcoming lounge, wonderful 3 course meal (great fish with both starters and main course and the lamb was to die for!) and clean and comfortable room. Not on the large if I had to share the room it might have been a squeeze. Of course never used the hot tubs but can imagine the wonderful views while soaking! Due to the remote location had the experience of a lifetime and saw the Northern Lights! Simple but very comfortabel.

I am always very happy to stay here, the friendly welcome, the comfortable rooms and excellent location make it one of the best spots in Iceland to see the Northern Lights.

The Hotel is a wonderful place family owned and run by wonderful people.

Thanks again to all at the Hotel, see you again soon

Room Tip: 2 nice hot tubs out the back for relaxing and watching the lights.

Having planned to stay in another location a desicion was made to stop at this hotel and enjoy the amenities and quiet atmosphere. The rooms are clean, tidy and well maintained with a great view of the surrounding area. In the middle of nowhere made our stay so much better as it meant using the facilities within. The hot tubs were a perfect end of day experience with the staff happy to accomodate our crazy needs. Breakfast is a self help buffet with plenty of coffe, tea and fresh juices availiable.

Room Tip: Use the hot tubs and enjoy the wintery nights.
