Location is a very short drive away from Gulfoss and marked by signs on the main road. Stayed in the newer wing. Rooms were spacious, very well appointed and designed, and TV had surprising amount of English channels! Noise insulation is superb. Restaurant was closed when we there (off season?) We had to drive out to eat at Geysir (which...

A deliberate decision to stay at Hotel Gullfoss given its proximity to Gullfoss itself and its distance from the other tourist spots back down the road. Our room was in the new section of the hotel, and we were very impressed by the comfort, style, warmth, and quietness. Obviously a lot of thought had gone into the design and construction...

This hotel was a great choice. Don't let the curb view fool you. We were placed in the newly bulit wing of the hotel and they did a fantastic job top to bottom. A beautiful shower, comfortable beds and a good variety of television viewings. We stayed 2 nights and ate dinner both nites in the onsite restaurant. A great...

Stayed in this hotel a few days ago. Hotel is literally in the middle of nowhere and is not what I expected, prime location to see northern lights, hotel in itself was modern, clean and friendly! Hotel has a restaurant with a good choice of food and drink. I would recommend this hotel to anybody it was fantastic!

This hotel has lovely rooms, a great bathroom and shower, and a nice restaurant with lovely food. The hotel is perfectly located between Geysir and Gullfoss. It is in a beautiful remote area and we were surrounded by snow-covered hills. The staff are friendly, and the hotel was warm which was very welcome after a day of sight-seeing in the...

Clean, simple modern rooms not dissimilar to a motel style. The hotel is very close, almost walking distance from the incredible Gullfoss waterfall and a short drive from Geysir. There used to be two large hot-tubs behind the hotel with views of the mountains they were a great way to relax in the evening and hope to see the northern...

Nice hotel. Clean, modern rooms. good food. Fine breakfast. Pleasant staff. Quiet location. Great location; before breakfast go once more to the Gullfoss waterfalls and you will be there almost alone or go to the golfcourse also very close. Highly recommended.

The hotel is in a middle of peaceful remote area where you have great chance to see Aurora Borealis, and close to many attractions in golden circle such as Gullfoss Falls, Geysir & Thingvellir National Park. The hosts were lovely & warm, and have great local knowledge & skills in photographic, so he can give you great advise to taking...

It doesn't look like much on the outside but on the inside it's warm and the rooms are cosy with comfortable beds. If it's a clear night you're in the right spot for the aurora borealis and if you're hungry the restaurant serves wonderful dishes of mainly local food. Fish, lamb or vegetarian dishes and a beautiful chocolate cake for...

Hotel Gullfoss is a short drive from the falls, so if you are staying you can take advantage of times when the world and his wife are not there: get up and go in the morning and there are no crowds. This hotel is new, and spacious, and very good considering it is miles from anywhere. We coincided with a...
