Even though thee was a coach load arriving check in was very quick & efficient. We were lucky because we had a room facing the river so the view was lovely. Breakfast very good and nice ambience overlooking river but as sun didn't rise until 10.30 it was still dark at breakfast!. We had a one free use of spa... More

My husband and I stumbled across Hotel Selfoss after driving for hours in the middle of the night from Hofn. For hours there were zero hotels open (all guest houses or closed for the season) and we were driving through some pretty nasty weather. All of the sudden the hotel stood before us like magic! The gentleman at the desk... More

Amazing, brilliant and educational. My trip to Iceland in January 2015 was planned as a tick in the box destination before I got there, im now writing this review wondering when I will be going back. I booked through Secret Escapes, an organised tour over 4 days. Stopping in Reykjavik the first and final nights while stopping in Selfoss the... More

Honeymoon (2 years late)! The wife is asleep and I'm an insomniac, so here goes. Firstly: 4* hotel. With 4* hotels you get 3 kinds. Ones that just dropped shy of 5*. Ones that are sat and comfortable at 4*. Then those that are just better than 3*. The gap between bottom 4* and top 4* is significant. Hotel Selfoss... More

I stayed at this hotel from the 11th til the 13th of November as part of a deal I'd brought online so I did not pick the hotel by choice but it was lovely! Staff were really helpful when there was a problem with our booking. The reception room, breakfast and hotel room were all nice and modern, fairly quiet... More

The bright, spacious and welcoming reception area and staff were just what we needed when we arrived on a cold, dark snowy afternoon early in December. Check in was swift and simple and we were delighted with our room which overlooked the river. The hotel benefits from being situated by a beautiful Glacial river, the second largest in Iceland.

The hotel was smart, modern and clean. Staff friendly. Rooms nice with lovely view over the river. Breakfast superb. Good value. The only downside was the design of the bathroom. It was for a disabled person and the shower area had a tiny lip and it was impossible to have a shower without flooding the bathroom

Like most visitors, we were on a road trip around Southern Iceland and stopped here en route back to Reykjavik after journeying further east for the day. We got to the hotel relatively late after stopping for dinner near the sea. The room was big with a nice view of the river but as a hotel, it's pretty nondescript. We... More

Stayed here for 1 night as part of a road trip around Iceland. Found both the hotel and the room to be smart and clean, the room was generously sized and the view over the river is particularly good. We dined at the hotel restaurant and whilst it wasn't cheap, the food was incredible. The restaurant was very quiet and... More
