We stayed on night here. Our room was well equipped with TV, a king-size bed, and a clean private bathroom. The breakfast menu was the best we had during our Iceland trip. The stuff was always AAA!

This hotel was wonderful. Just a few miles from Gullfoss waterfall. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was convenient. We were able to get over to the waterfall early in the morning and enjoy it with almost no one else around. It was also an easy drive from Gyser the night before.

We stayed one night at Hotel Gullfoss to be able to see the Golden Circle. It was very conveniently located to Gullfoss so we were able to beat the crowds there! We used the jacuzzis to relax after a long day and a nice dinner in the hotel restaurant. It was nice to have access to a restaurant and the... More

Title: Reservation arbitrarily cancelled by the manager ID#: 130103819 We made a reservation for 2 rooms in this hotel 5 months before our intended stay (May 4th 2012).Three days before our arrival the manager cancelled it arbitrarily, saying he made a mistake and proposing to us a room in a neighbouring good hotel (Hotel Geysir) for the same price. However,... More

I'm so sorry for the inconvenience and the unsatisfying treatment you experienced. This is not how it should be. I did not know that they gave you a room in the guesthouse. I booked you in the hotel and I do not know why they moved you to the guesthouse, but I suppose they were fully booked too and that... More

We stayed 2 nights at an amazingly value for money cost. Place is located in a peaceful area with no night city lights so you can see the Northern Lights from the car park with a cup of tea in your hand. Jon and Lara are very nice people. When we reached there in wet clothes after our dog sledding... More

Stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed it. The location is quite remote but the family running it are very friendly. The rooms are basic but adequate and clean. I totally disagree with other comments about the food. It was reasonably priced and very high quality, simply cooked. Recommend eating there, much better value than Reyjkavik. Free WiFi across the hotel,... More

We stayed at Hotel Gullfoss for two nights in March 2012 and had a very pleasant stay. The key thing is its location, as a keen photographer I was up early for pre-dawn shots and being only 3 minutes from Gullfoss and 7-8 minutes from Geysir you really could not get a better location. The staff were friendly and helpful,... More

Hotel itself was very comfortable & appreciated the free wireless access. Owner helpful & pleasant. However, unless you have to, I wouldn't advise eating your evening meal there. As the hotel's in the middle of nowhere we didn't expect gourmet standards but food was extremely expensive given the quality & choice available. On the first night there were a handful... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-October. We were greeted by a nice gentleman, who it turns out owns the hotel with his mother, who also own the beautiful farm behind the hotel and have a scenic private walking trail that leads all the way to the Gullfoss waterfall. The two of them alternated running the... More

Hotel Gullfoss is pretty much the only place to stay near the Gullfoss waterfall, and luckily it is a very nice hotel. My wife and I were hoping to see the falls, but it was pouring rain when we showed up so we decided to just stay the night and hope for better weather the next day... luck was on... More
