We enjoyed our dinner here, but as there aren't a lot of other choices in the area, it is a bit expensive. It is a little confusing, but the hotel is next door. It is quite a nice place though. I heard the brunch was good, but we never did eat it.

The restaurants in Geysir close (strangely) early even in July (high season) The Hotel Restaurant is the only place that serves dinner during the evening. Good atmosphere. The restaurant is modern and the menu offers enough choice.

We ate here and the food was incredible with great fish dishes and my husband had mink whale and said it was delicious. The service here is the best in Iceland, so personable and friendly and you need to remember you don't tip in Iceland so you know they aren't just being nice for a tip.

An elegant restaurant with real delicious food. Many varieties suite everyone taste. Nice smiley staff. The fish dishes are so good. We tried the Salmon & the Cod.

As the only hotel by Geysir you dont have much choice if you want to stay here but that shouldnt put you off. This place was really very nice. The room was clean and spacious and had a large window looking out over the beautiful Icelandic landscape. None of the rooms face the Geysir as that space is saved for... More

There is no doubt that the location in relation to the Geysir is perfect. It is also apparently very popular however don't let this fool you. The cabins are dreadful. Getting to them from the car park is hazardous and quite a challenge with suitcases as the paths are made of deep gravel so you cannot wheel your suitcaseFor two... More

Staff were great - we asked for ice bucket for champagne and they insisted on providing glasses. Their recommended/affiliated restaurant was perfect - they customized a meal for me not on the menu. Room was spacious and beautiful. Loved it!

We popped in for dinner whilst staying at the sister accommodation of Littli Geysir. The food here is excellent - the best pumpkin risotto ever tasted, and desserts off the scale ! Would really recommend

It is very comfortable although the rooms are a bit small. Very close to the Geysir field. Restaurant is good and plenty of hot water. Staff are all good and friendly. The place looks a bit basic from the outside, but is nice inside. Only a short drive to the waterfall.

This review is specific to the restaurant at the hotel. Great restaurant location next to Geysir. We ate here mid week closer to their closing hours. The food was absolutely amazing. Had a very delicious pumpkin soup as an appetizer. Our atlantic char was perfectly cooked and steak done exactly to our request. Even the bread they served was warm... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The trademark of Iceland, the great Geysir, gave the hotel its name and Geysir is situated right outside the front door of the hotel. Haukadalur is one of Iceland's most famous historical sites, both ancient and today. The farmer's son from Haukadalur, Sigurdur Greipsson, founded a sports school in his father's inheritance at Haukadalur, which he operated with his wife Sigrun Bjarnadottir for a period of forty-three years. Today Hotel Geysir is run by descendant of Sigurdur Greipsson, Mar Sigurdsson (youngest son of Sigurdur and Sigrun) and his wife Sigridur Vilhjalmsdottur along with their children, Mabil Groa and Sigurdur.The Geysir-Center, which is directly opposite the geothermal area of Geysir and Strokkur, consists of a whole building complex with elegant restaurants, souvenir shop, outdoor and clothing store, snack shop, Geysir museum with multimedia show and camping area. Also there is a golf course, fishing, hiking trails, outdoor paradise the Haukadalur woods, Langjokull glacier tours and other activities such as highland tours. Therefore it is perfect for day trips because of many different possibilities of entertainment. Further details of activities in the region is available at the hotel's website hotelgeysir.Is. His landmark of Iceland is a spectacular natural phenomenon beyond description. The geothermal field surrounding the Great Geyser is the definitive geyser, having given its name to the geological phenomena. The Strokkur, another famous geyser located nearby, gives a performance every few minutes, shooting a tower of water and steam 30 meters into the air. There are other attractions apart from the magnificent geysers. For example, Blesi, a hot spring with water the colour of turquoise delights the senses. Walking about this natural wonder, one experiences the intensity of the forces of nature. Night time offers a fascinating view of the bubbling hot springs and the northern lights. A pot of boiling water takes on new dimensions.We place great pride in that all are equally pleased at the arrival and departure and your stay will be pleasant and memorable.Hotel RoomsThe hotel has twenty four double studio rooms in bungalows beside the river and twelve rooms in one wing, just two minutes from the thermal fields.All in all, this has to be the perfect framework for rest, relaxation, and getting charged up for the next activity. Access for disabled people is available both in hotel rooms, restaurants and toilets.The hotel has hot tub indoor with water from the geser, which are good to relax after a walk around the area. Iceland is an island capable of tempting visitors to a host of activities. One should however not forget that vacations are also for taking advantage of time by relaxing body and soul to the utmost. To reach this level of relaxation it is essential that the surroundings be conducive to this. ... more   less
