We had two cracking nights at Grimsborgir, we were a bit apprehensive due to the (unfair) review in the Lonely Planet guide. Our fears were totally unfounded, we had a huge 4 bed bungalow, we phoned ahead on the first night & the hot tub was full & steaming on our arrival, wonderful after a days driving & sightseeing. The second night there was a complete power failure so everything was candlelight in the restaurant for the hour or so it took to fix. Hotel team totally professional and the added ambiance of candles made the evening all the better, so much so that when the power came back on we switched the lights off to remain in candlelight. Big advantage for our bungalow was the lounge facing North West enabling watching the Northern Lights from the comfort of a cosy room & comfortable armchair. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing for a higher end exclusive experience, only comment is the expense of food & drink but no more expensive here than anywhere else in Iceland - thanks for a great time, we all really enjoyed it.
