We had a night stay in the new Foss Hotel just outside of Hofn Iceland in April 2015. When we drove in there were reindeer grazing on the entry lawn!!! Once we parked and walked into the lobby for check in we were greeted with both a positive cheerful registration clerk but an amazing view!!! The hotel is set just... More

We stayed here in April and arrived to an empty carpark and wondered whether the hotel was actually open. We discovered that this was a summer hotel and had only re-opened a week before we stayed, co-incidentally the hotel had been completely refurbished during the recent closure so everything is brand new. We stayed 2 nights and it was very... More

This hotel is in one of the most stunning locations I have ever seen. It's absolutely beautiful. It's a few miles outside of Hofn but worth the drive (and the opportunity to see the Northern Lights). The staff is friendly, it's clean, well-appointed rooms. It's all new and the breakfast is great. We definitely would recommend it.

Location - 10 min drive from the town so be aware of that. The hotel is very new and clean. It has amazing view and modern design. This is a seasonal hotel so when we visited in April the restaurant was closed and only 1-2 staff in the entire hotel. Don't expect too much service here. We planned to stay... More

Newly constructed b&b In Hofn with beautiful wood paneled walls. The floor in the bathroom got very wet since there is not a seperate shower to contain the water. Our rooms were spacious and overlooked a gorgeous field and farm. Our breakfast featured homemade bread and three different flavored herring.

This fairly new hotel is just off the ring road but fantastically situated looking out towards the sea or inland to Vatnajokull. It's a cut above (but similar to) the characterless hotels that ring Iceland. Rooms are modern, clean and have quite stunning views. The restaurant is a bit too fancy for it's own good but OK nonetheless. Peaceful, relaxed... More

This was the most modern hotel of all the places that we stayed in Iceland, which is saying a lot because all the hotels were modern decor. It was great to experience ultra modern decor at least once. We arrived late, so didn't sample the dinner, but the breakfast was delicious and filling. The view was great. The hotel location...

Staff exceedingly helpful. Continental breakfast was perfect-fresh fruits, eggs&bacon, fresh bread, cheese/yogurt, juice&hot beverages, cereals in a self-serve setting.The restaurant is stunning both with regards to food quality, ambiance, surroundings, and staff. Nice and clean rooms

After a long day of driving and sightseeing we weren't sure what to expect when we finally reached the hotel. We were very pleased and surprised by what we found. The hotel surroundings were amazing. You felt like you were in an oasis in the middle of nowhere. The staff were friendly and courteous. The room was very spacious and... More

We spent just one night here while travelling round Iceland and it was one of our least favourite hotels. It is an impressive modern building and our room was a great size, and comfortable. Bathroom was also a great size and nicely finished. So far so good. The shower is designed in such a way that it is a wet... More
