Fabulous 8.8 From 53 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Our one night stay was very nice. We especially enjoyed our room with the river view. Staff was friendly. Only complaint was the noise from the room above us late at night. After we complained and staff went to that room, those guests decided to retaliate against us by pounding and pounding on their floor. I can’t blame the hotel for this disturbance, but the extreme rudeness of those guests

Great value hotel
Express check in and check out, great breakfast and an amazing view on the river.

Nice Stay
We enjoyed our stay here. The bathtub was nice, especially after a long flight. We enjoyed the breakfast spread. Only feedback was the two twin beds pushed together to make one king bed wasn't very comfortable, but we later learned this is a European thing. Otherwise, would stay here again.

Very good 8.0
A nice, central hotel which was tricky to find via the Expedia app which led us down an icy industrial estate. Once there though, we were well looked after and were relieved to find a large, comfy room. We took advantage of the spa facilities at the extra cost of 1500 ISK each and enjoyed a good meal in the restaurant.

Exceptional 10.0
The property was well maintained and the staff were friendly. The rooms were small but ideal for couples. The into downside was there were no shampoo and conditioners, dental kits and soap. They have body and shower gel combination so you will need to bring your own toiletries. The tap water is from natural springs so it is drinkable! The price included breakfast which they had a large selection from salads to eggs, bacons and sausages to even broccoli and cold meat!

Poor 2.0
Beds were not comfortable at all to sleep. Running water was not that efficient. Hotel is in very run down state. Breakfast was not great considering it’s very big hotel in Selfoss.

Exceptional 10.0
Definitely a gem. Clean, modern windows were wall to wall so it was nice having that huge view. Staff at front desk was great. And the breakfast is Amazing. While not where you order off the menu, but don't think of a typical continental breakfast. This breakfast is loaded and especially with things you wouldn't expect to be given in an included breakfast
