This is a small hotel within walking distance of the beautiful Skoga series of waterfalls. It's also a good base for the equally lovely falls at and near Seljalandsfoss, plus Vik, the Vestmannaeyar Islands, Solheimajökull glacier hikes and other sights & activities in central southern Iceland. Nice view out to hills and fields, nesting snipe and oystercatchers a few metres... More

Unexpected stay here for 1 night as our planned hotel ended up being full. Has the feel of a backpackers hostel. Our room was good size however,and well appointed,although the bathroom could have done with a bit of an upgrade,but everything worked as it should. Be prepared for "sulphur" smelling water here when having a shower or wash,which is normal... More

The hotel is in a brilliant location within a couple of minutes of Skógafoss waterfall. Didn't get a very friendly welcome though. Admittedly we arrived before the check-in time but as it was raining and cold we decided to ask if the room was ready. The manager/owner? was very abrupt and just said "no" and basically told to leave and... More

Don't let the hotel's plain exterior fool you! This was our fourth of five nights in Iceland; Hotel Skogar was by far the most tastefully decorated hotel we stayed in during our travels and a very friendly staff. The rooms were large and clean by European standards. Our room had a balcony and a distant view of the waterfall. We... More

Our guide booked us at the cottage property of Hotel Skogar. The house had 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Decoration was spot on farmhouse chic. Plenty of towels and comfortable sofas. But the mattresses were terrible and broke this stay. Even the view of the peaceful sheep grazing in the meadow in front of us could not redeem the stay.... More

We travelled as a camera club group on a 7 night trip around Iceland staying in a different hostel each night, and had our fourth night here. We were made to feel very welcome, the hostel was clean and modern. Only gripe was that the toilets/showers were at one end of teh building and the bedrooms at the other end.... More

What a lovely treat...we booked only a one night stay (as we are travelling around the 1 ring road) but wish all our hotels were like this, and will be sad to go, plus we managed to get a lovely en-suit room with breakfast for a very good and fair price, especially compared to many places in the area. The... More

My fiancé and I had a very nice and romantic trip to the South last weekend and stayed at Hótel Skógar. We absolutely loved the hotel, its cozyness, atmosphere, location and service. We had dinner at the hotel's restaurant (by the fireplace!) and it was really delicious and well served. Very beautiful location by the waterfall Skógarfoss and great nature... More

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Skogar 1 night last week. The room was nice, bright and clean. Food was delicious, portions were ample and service was prompt and cheery. For dinner we had the house recommended 3-course meal which consisted of an appetizer sampler platter(reindeer, goose and I can´t remember what the third thing was), lamb fillet for... More

If you are travelling East on your Icelandic adventure, then this small hotel is a great 1/2 way stop. Right next to the Skogafoss waterfall, in a small settlement. The food was limited but good and breakfast was varied enough but there was nothing hot. Staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there was a problem with the hot tub being... More
