We stayed here for two nights part of secret escapes deal, emailed ahead to ask for river view room which we got! Room spacious, clean but 1980's with a big black scuff on the wall which I don't know why it wasn't cleaned off, made it look like a cheap room! Spa small but adequate and kill two hours! No...

We stayed for two nights as part of a four night package trip to Iceland. Our room was large and well furnished with an amazing view of the river below. It was warm and clean. We ate in the restaurant both nights and food, whilst not very exciting, was pretty good, and good value. Staff were helpful and friendly without... More

Great stopover after an icy drive back from Gulfoss. Safe, clean rooms, only negative was the lack of gym facilities. Lovely view from the bar, and happy hour was very welcoming! 4-7pm! Food was hot and tasty, breakfast was adequate.

Stayed here for one night eith my sister. The rooms are comfortable and functional with good shower, mini bar and quite comfortable beds. We had a river view room and the view was amazing, with mountains in the backdrop in the snow. The restaurant also overlooks this view. The food was very good in the restaurant and staff were helpful.... More

This Hotel is set overlooking a river in the lovely town of Selfoss, Iceland. The rooms are generously sized, very clean and comfortable and well furnished and stocked. Brilliant wet room shower. The view from our room (number 312) was fantastic. We also used the Spa, and they provided you with towels and a fluffy dressing gown. The on site... More

Hotel Selfoss was a great place to stop on our way back toward Reykjavik. It's in a convenient and easy to find location, with a restaurant inside and a couple other places nearby. The food was really tasty (if a little bit small in portions) and the service was great.

A very nice hotel in a relatively small town. It is located right on the river, which is probably the best view you are going to get. Very nice and clean. Food is also quite good. The staff is very helpful. One thing I would have liked is for thicker black out curtains, as my room was still quite bright... More

Hi NikkiBee13, Thank you for your kind review of Hotel Selfoss. The blessed and cursed midnight sun. It is nice to be able to take a walk late at night and it is still daylight but hard to sleep in the same daylight. We are exchanging some of the curtains for better ones to try and solve that problem. On... More

Hotel was wonderful! Room was very large and comfortable. Bathroom was also spacious. Breakfast was excellent. Large selection, traditional Icelandic foods and other selections also. In a very spacious and well decorated dining room overlooking the river. Receptionist was very helpful. Stayed 2 nights and if ever back in Iceland, will choose this hotel again. Has parking and free wifi.

We visited as part of a tour. It seems obvious straight away that this hotel is in the process of being modernised- half of the outside is beautiful and half very tired. This theme follows through with most of the building. Reception is clean and modern with efficient staff. There is a seating area at the end which is a... More

Hi Pxiehall, Thank you for taking your time to write a review about Hotel Selfoss. As you noticed some parts of the building need a little touch up. We want to do less at a time and do it well so it might take a little time. One of the additions planned for this summer is a building of a... More
