Hotel Grimsborgir is an unusual development which looks to have been a group of houses converted to holiday accommodation. The main hotel building with reception, restaurant and small bar even has the kitchen in a converted garage! That said the individual guest houses are large, comfortable and very well-equipped. Even the dining table was laid ready for entertaining - it was like a luxury show house!
We ate in the restaurant on a couple of nights and the food was excellent. Breakfast was also very good marred only by mediocre coffee out of a press button machine. Throughout our four day stay the food in Iceland was exceptionally good from the cafe at Geysir and the Cafe Paris in Reyjavik to the Fjorubordid lobster restaurant near Selfoss (despite the rather shanty town location).
All in all an enjoyable stay and a good location for sightseeing, star/northern lights gazing and day trips to Reyjavik.
