This is a small hotel, situated next to a geothermal plant, and within easy walking distance of the Blue Lagoon. We had a great welcome and were shown all the facilities – which included free coffee and tea all day, various games, a jigsaw, plus where the waffle making machine was put from 2.30 – 4pm! The room was a...

Really enjoyed our stay here, staff very friendly. They offer free waffles between 2.30pm - 4.30pm, also offer free hot drinks at all times. We were in room 22, the room itself was very nice, except the walls felt so thin, we could hear both our neighbours making noise, one snoring their head off. We got to see the northern...

Dear Carl M, Many thanks for your kind words. We are glad to hear that you did enjoy your stay with us. As the Icelandic krona has been getting stronger and stronger against main currencies, especially the GBP, due to Brexit, we are aware that the country is more expensive than just few years back. But we hope it was...

A great stay at the Northern Light Inn... centrally located to the airport and Blue Lagoon and many other tourist attractions. Rooms were great and well equipped and super comfortable beds. Great viewing room in case you are lucky enough to see the northern lights. The owner is fantastic and so much fun, and made us feel right at home....

This new hotel is in a great location for visiting the blue lagoon. The rooms are stylish and spacious which makes it great value for money.

Dear trentpotter, Many thanks for your nice words. We will have to correct one thing, we are not a new hotel as we opened in 1983 but we have maintained the building and gradually extended over the years. This summer we will open our new 10 deluxe rooms, our wellness-spa, fitness room and relaxation facilities. But of course we are...

We stayed here for a few nights. The hotel is based near the water factory and slightly takes away from views. However there are loads more views that are fantastic! The staff here are wonderful. They genuinely went above and beyond to accommodate us and it was brill. They provide a shuttle bus to the blue lagoon which is terrific....

We stayed here for one night and found it to be very comfortable with friendly, helpful staff. It benefited from underfloor heating which was just what was needed for the time of year. We ate at Max's Restaurant and had a delicious three-course meal by a lovely, efficient waiter.
