We were lucky and got for a good rate a newly refurbished room! It was superclean and modern. And the bed was super-comfy. The gentleman at the reception was extremely friendly and helpful. The best part of the hotel is its location: in one direction about 5 km is the geyser park and in the other direction even closer is...

Hotel in the middle of nowhere, peaceful and quiet. Letdown from outside as they do constructions, but spacious, clean and modern inside. Wifi not reliable though. No hot tub although advertised in lonely planet and website. Restaurant food was not the best in the evening (main dish was horse meat 😁😁😁). But the breakfast was the best one we had...

This very nice modern hotel is located only 5 minutes from the spectacular Gullfoss waterfall and just 10 minutes to the incredible Geysir thermal area. Excellent rooms with great showers, comfortable beds, super fast wi-fi, very kind and helpful staff plus a delicious breakfast. Due to the proximity to gullfoss we were there at 6AM and only 5 other people...

We stayed one night at this hotel and took a break from our campervan. On the outside, the hotel is very unassuming. Inside the hotel, it is very clean and modern. We slept like babies in the quiet room. The staff was friendly and very helpful, too.

Room quality is excellent, to find hotel rooms of this standard in the Icelandic countryside was a big surprise. Seems they have a new wing, and an older wing under renovation. As there are no dining alternatives in the area, our dinner (and breakfast) was a friendly pleasant experience. This hotel is a great option if you are driving Reykjavik...

Comfortable, spacious room in a very modern hotel. Evening meal was good and breakfast excellent. Good choice of food for breakfast with hot and cold offerings including a waffle maker and mixture to make your own waffles.. Location so close to the Gulfoss falls was very convenient.

The outside looked a bit like a building site. Had to drag our luggage through pebbles to reach the entrance. But inside the hotel is very nice. The new wing has nice rooms with a good view over the countryside. Once they have completed the building works it will be a great place. There is only the hotel and a...

Went there only for the restaurant on an evening. Ordered 'pasta & salmon' a la carte... The presented dish was ridiculous. Pasta was undercooked instant noodle type with only bits of salmon. Quantity was also missing. Taste was passable but it was clearly not worth the price of this meal which equals the quality of ones from a motorway cantina.

As the other reviewers indicated, the site looks like a construction zone when you fist arrive. But the surrounding countryside gives a real taste of wild, remote Iceland. The rooms were really beautiful, clean and comfortable. It was very quiet and the dining room had wholesome food which was tasty if not fancy. The service throughout was relaxed and friendly

Very new in fact still doing some finishing touches especially outside. The room was superb (and perfect if you have a physical disability). Dining/bar/lounge area very pleasant. It's the closest accommodation to the waterfalls.
