Lovely hotel, very friendly staff. Rooms spotless. Breakfast was more than adequate, with a wide range of items for the buffet. Many of the rooms have a fantastic view of the glacier! Had a hard time finding the hotel though, even though I knew it right on the main ring road. The sign out front is placed parallel to the... More

This hotel is not exactly in the center of a city nor it is close to the habitual entry points to the biggest glacier in Europe (Vatnajókull), but the vista over some of its tongues is simply amazing. The building is very new and comfortable, and the staff very helpful. We had the slight inconvenience of having asked for an... More

The hotel is newly renovated, modern look and comfortable. With very good shower and bath facilities. Free the internet is very fast. My family and me had a good time there. We will definitely stay again next time.

Excellent hotel in the contryside with great view to the glacier. (ask for a glacier view) Stayed two nights. Previous evening we had dinner at the hotel and were very happy with the dinner and a great view of the countryside from the dining hall. We visited Hornafjarðarbæ and had lunch at the restaurant "Pakkhúsið" which is a great restaurant... More

We were touring in Iceland, and this was a great location for a stopover in the south-east. The interior design is cool, clean and modern, and there are great views of the glaciers and mountains. Dinner was very good - we tried the lobster soup, a beef dish and some nice lamb cutlets, but we were sorry to see Minke... More

A surprisingly modern hotel miles from anywhere, the Fosshotel Vatnajokull was good. The receptionist was helpful. The room was comfortable and modern and Wi-Fi and TV was good. The bathroom was surprisingly large. Dinner with a fabulous view was very good and the outlook from the bar was unsurpassed.

Something my husband had said before we left for Iceland made me think maybe this wasn't such a great place to stay, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting outside of Höfn. Turned out the reason he thought it might not be so good was because it wasn't in town,... More

Probably the most beautifil hotel we were in during our stay in Iceland... It's located a couple of kilometres before Höfn with a stunning view to the glacier. Newly renovated, the rooms are airy, modern, a little bit eccentric but we loved every moment in it... We had also a delicious dinner at the restaurant.

A recently refurbished hotel with easy access to several glaciers. A few miles out from Hofn but we thought in a lovely situation. The refurbishment was very nicely done, lovely rooms and delightful restaurant with beautifully cooked food. Again, a very nice stay and would certainly stay again. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for two nights during a fly-drive trip around Iceland. This hotel is about 10 kms from Hofn. it is very nice inside, having recently been refurbished, and our rooms were very well furnished and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with the dining room having great views of the glacier. We ate in the restaurant on one night,... More
