Stopped here for our first night in Iceland. Really nice, modern setting, especially considering reasonably remote location. Hotel was exceptionally clean, staff super friendly, and dinner in the restaurant was excellent. Bonus - a really adorable dog lives there too!

The hotel was clean and comfortable including breakfast, it is reasonable Iceland price. Since there was no other restaurants nearby, to dined at the hotel restaurant was our only choice. We ordered cocktails, soup, salad and lambs, it was shocked that the 2 main course of lambs were not good in taste, the worst one we had during 10days Iceland...

This place is a 5 minute drive from Gullfoss falls. We had planned to walk but it would mean walking along the road taken by all of the coach tours. The hotel was more expensive than others we stayed in but it was worth the extra money to stay in such a lovely place. The staff were friendly, the hotel...

We stayed 2 nights. Very clean & looks recently refurbished. Restaurant food very good. Limited menu, but another Icelandic hotel where most guests only stay one night. Fabulous walk long the canyon edge to Gullfoss waterfall. We were so lucky with the weather. Lovely sunny afternoon. Great base for visiting the national park & other features in the area. Highly...

Fantastic staff good food dinner. great breakfast. rooms were very clean and the staff was delightful and went out of their way to help you. very close to the geysers and waterfall. Shower made a mess of bathroom floor though since the enclosure had major gap between floor and glass. Not a practical shower for later use. Other than that...

We arrived in the middle of a snowstorm, so this was perfect! Cosy and comfortable, with delicious food, the hotel is extremely close to Gulfoss falls which meant we could get there early and avoid the crowds.

Recently renovated. Nice clean design and I appreciate the little things like hooks for your towel and hangers for your coat. Rooms are small but decent sized. Very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was small and shower was tight. I'm 5ft and could barely turn in there. Restaurant serves excellent food, but they were out of quite a few items. My...

This is a perfect location if you want to stop in the Golden Circle - it's very close to Gullfoss and to the Geyser. I visited both early in the morning before all the tourist buses got there thanks to the close proximity of the hotel. Rooms are clean, nice bathroom, good shower, comfortable beds, tv with lots of channels....

Quiet B&B, right in the middle of the Golden Circle , with nice touches of the minimalist nordic design around the reception and dinning area. Basic rooms, but with a generous and extensive breakfast.
