We were so happy we chose this hotel to spend two nights in this summer. We stayed in two rooms with our family of five (two suites). When we first arrived there was a mix up with an extra bed - luckily we were well...More
We stayed in a 4 bedroom house which was perfect for our family. We really appreciated having our own bedrooms for a few nights during our week in Iceland. The accommodation was of a high standard and it was great to be able to cook...More
I recently stayed here for a night with a large group of women. The beds were very comfortable, and the robes and slippers in the rooms made it fun to head out to the soaking tubs. We enjoyed the kitchen area in the back of...More
I would have given it five stars but the hot tub was not working so that made us sad. The property is spread out so in bad weather it's a bit of a walk to the restaurant but very clean rooms and nicely decorated.
This was our favorite hotel in Iceland. This recently constructed hotel is spread around large grounds with a central building for the restaurant. We had a glass or 2 of wine for pre-dinner drinks by a fire with attentive service. The evening meal, both in...More

The hotel is located in the countryside, 10 minutes from Selfoss the closest town. It is on the golden circle route so there are many activities and things to see and do around the area. You can do the golden circle one day or even do part of it in one day and the other half on another day because there are many small stops and interesting things to do.
You can also go to the south coast on one of the days.
There is an outdoor swimming pool in selfoss which is only 10 minutes drive from us, and also other pools in all of the towns around us, as well as natural pools such as: Secret Lagoon and Fontana Spa (in Fontana Spa they also bake rye bread in the ground in the natural hot springs around them and you can join a short tour to see how they bake and taste it)
You can do horse riding on one of the farms in the area, which can be great fun for both children and adults.
Hveragerði is a town about 20 minute drive from here, where there are a lot of hot spring around and inside the town, there are green houses there (Where they even grow bananas!) and also a hot river which you can hike up to and bathe in the natural hot river. It takes about 1 hour to hike up to the river, but the accesibility depends on the weather when you are here. If you are coming now in the winter months it might be more complicated to access the path up the mountain to the river.
Snow mobiling - you can do snow mobiling from Gullfoss waterfall. There can be two persons on each snowmobile so you could take the children with you or you can pay a little extra to have one of the children to go with one of the guides if you prefer.
There are even more things you can do around here so if you have anything specific in mind, please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail.
