The staff was mostly kind and helpful; however, this did not make up for a very disappointing stay. The luxury room was advertised and sold as a suite, but it was a small room with zero sitting area. Other disappointments included: the room was very...More
We had a wonderful stay in a two bedroom suite (which actually had three beds). The room was large and very clean. The views are wonderful and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Loved the shower, the heated bathroom floor and the private hot...More
Very convenient location for day trips to golden circle activities. Comfortable and quiet rooms, great staff, excellent restaurant. Surrounded by farmland so it feels so different than being in Reyjkavik.
As others have mentioned, the layout is unique with several buildings around the center reception and dining room. The place has been built in phases over the past few years, so everything is new and in perfect working order. Some reviewers find fault with the...More
We stayed there in June with our two kids and were very happy with the accommodations. We used this hotel as a base to see the golden circle before heading back to Reykjavik. I didn't quite realize when I booked the hotel that it is...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.
