I spend one night here and we loved the looks of the hotel. Fantastic beds, fantastic bathroom and it is around the corner of the Blue Lagoon. Breakfast was minimal but satisfying and the staff was okay. We had the deluxe room and honestly, very expensive for what you get..

Although the 'clinic' is listed as a hotel it is certainly more like a hospital The receptionist on check in was unhelpful and gave no guidance of where our room was or facilities on offer or even where/what time breakfast was served. The rooms are immaculate however the whole stay was over shadowed when i accidentally forgot a £120 jacket...

I suspect my opinion would be a bit better had our room been completely finished. Seeing the other photos for the hotel tells me our room was not the same. But first, the great things: good location (although a tad far to walk to the Blue Lagoon, along an unlit walkway), modern facility, great private lagoon, great staff, comfy bed,...

Loved this hotel, has its own lagoon which I felt was much better then the blue lagoon. The food was excellent, we had the tasting menu, not cheap but worth trying. The staff especially a lady called Adda, who cared so much for us and made us feel that nothing was to much trouble. Thank you Adda

On my way to to London, I did a stopover in Iceland courtesy of Icelandair. Because I wanted to visit the Blue Lagoon, I thought that it would be easier to just stay at the Blue Lagoon Clinic Hotel. I knew that it would be pricey but sometimes I prefer convenience. I am glad that I did. The Blue Lagoon...

We could have stayed only in the hotel and not seen a bit of Iceland. We stayed here for 3 nights in mid October. My husband and I shared a room 16 with our teenage son. The beds were super comfortable, we didn't hear a thing and at the heated floors and rain shower were lovely. Our main reason for...

I went there for 4 nights and was €210 per night. But I did not have a good time staying there because there was construction opposite my room so noisy plus alarming all the time. So no relaxing at all!! Although the staff are so friendly. I will never go back.

Stayed at the Blue Lagoon for 4 nights. The hotel was superb, the staff were amazing especially Deloris who was so helpful, and the the private geothermal pool was out of this world, but the let down was the food on offer. The breakfast was average and no hot food on offer during the day. The only nearest restaurant was...

We stayed 3 nights here on our recent trip to Iceland. It was amazing. If checking out the lagoon is on your list of things to do while visiting Iceland, it's well worth the money to stay at this hotel so you can get access to the private lagoon that is attached for guests. (The larger Blue Lagoon is about...
