This is a modern hotel by Icelandic standards. Modern design, modern looking rooms, comfortables beds and a nice bathroom shower combo. Working Wi-Fi. Good standard breakfast and an updated dining menu and excellent dinner. Great location for exploring and photography work. Gullfoss waterfalls in a close drive away - go early or late - and catch the sunset or sunrise....

First, the location can't be beat, you can walk to the Falls from here. The rooms are very nice and actually cozy considering most hotels in Iceland are very minimalist, with sparse furnishing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Now we were in the new section which is definitely where you want...

Iceland itself is a different world, and many places, including this one, is magical. The surrounding hills seem to change with the sun, the horses and sheep in the distance seem to know of no problems. Staff always friendly and helpful, clean rooms and stunning views. The canyon with the river Hvità is stunning and I think many miss to...

The room we got, looked brand new in a brand new wing. So, I don't know the other rooms but ours was fine. A bit small, but tidy, good quality beds, comfortable bathroom. The restaurant in the hotel (there is no other place to eat around) is fine with a pleasant service.

Room was perfect. Modern, clean, and functional. Rooms had clearly been renovated recently. Breakfast was nice and wifi worked well. Would definitely recommend and stay there again. Great location as well.

Hotel Gullfoss was a pleasant surprise since we didn't expect such a clean and plush hotel in the middle of nowhere. The rooms looked brand new from inside and the bed was very comfortable. The view from the restaurant was amazing. It was only a couple of mins drive from Gullfoss waterfall and perhaps 10-15 mins from Geysir so the...

Ideally situated for our stay, quiet location. Construction work going on at time of visit but did not present any problems. Friendly and helpful staff. Handy for the water falls at Gulfoss and the geysers at Geysir.

I did not stay at the hotel, but I was off to see the waterfall and I stopped in for breakfast. It was delicious and the staff was great. It had all of the fixing, but the homemade bread was out of the world.

We were lucky and got for a good rate a newly refurbished room! It was superclean and modern. And the bed was super-comfy. The gentleman at the reception was extremely friendly and helpful. The best part of the hotel is its location: in one direction about 5 km is the geyser park and in the other direction even closer is...

Hotel in the middle of nowhere, peaceful and quiet. Letdown from outside as they do constructions, but spacious, clean and modern inside. Wifi not reliable though. No hot tub although advertised in lonely planet and website. Restaurant food was not the best in the evening (main dish was horse meat 😁😁😁). But the breakfast was the best one we had...
