“Great place to stay in an interesting part of Iceland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Clean guesthouse with welcoming staff. We loved that our room faced the quiet and pretty river. Breakfast was excellent too. Make sure and take advantage of cooking your own egg in the hot spring outside. Also close to many adventures in the area including the hot river you can hike to and swim in (ask he gals at the hotel--they will direct you there).

I stayed for 3 nights as part of a group and everyone really enjoyed their stay at Frost and Fire. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming, the food was really excellent (nice breakfast and fantastic evening meals) and the rooms were well decorated and comfortable. There were some nice touches like the bamboo sticks with nets to cook eggs in the hot springs, bath robes to allow you to get to the hot tubs in comfort and reasonably priced bar. The location is good and overall, I can highly recommend a stay at Frost and Fire.

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights at the very end of October and loved it. We had a double ensuite room in the main building. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The bed was large and very comfy. We had a great view out to the river and windows out of the roof to spot the northern lights. The bathroom was small but very functional. Breakfast every morning was a treat and we enjoyed boiling eggs in the hot spring outside. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. While we were there the weather was very cold and incredibly windy, however, we stayed warm and snug in our room with a radiator we could regulate the heat from ourselves. We also tried out the outdoor hot tub and steam room. We'd definitely recommend doing that as although it is very cold outside the hot tub is warm enough to sit in with a swim suit and woolly hat, which makes the trip rather special. The guest house supplies towelling dressing gowns which were perfect for wearing to the hot tub.

Room Tip: Choose an ensuite room in the main building, it is attached to the breakfast room so you don't n...

Dear Guests.

Thank you so much for your nice review.
It is nice to see that you were feeling comfortable at our Hotel even in this bad weather we had while you were staying here. Fortunately we have enough geothermal warmth here along with a very nice staff to welcome our guests.

Thank you and we hope to see you again.

Myself & partner arrived back from our first visit to Iceland today and we were blown away by the place. We stayed five nights at Frost & Fire Guesthouse and are so glad that we did. 

We picked up a 4x4 from Thrifty Car rental at the airport and headed for Hvergeroi, the location of Frost & Fire is perfect, it's surrounded by pockets of geothermal vents and so peaceful. We did trips to Reykjavik and various other towns and can honestly say that they didn't compare! 

The staff were so lovely and each day prepared a continental breakfast, on our last morning they left out a few bits for us to eat before our very early flight. The rooms were cleaned and spotless each day. 

It was a quick walk to the local supermarket and restaurants, our personal favourite was a pizzeria named Hofland (opposite cafe Rose). There is also an alcohol Store, although buy at Airport duty free as it is cheaper, and the wine shop is only open for a few hours a day. 

Lastly I have to mention the hot tubs, they were warm and such a fun part to the evenings. There's is also a heated swimming pool which is a lovely extra. 

All round brilliant trip made even better by this Guest house.

Room Tip: Room 6 didn't have the view but was pretty sound proof and cozy with more room than others

This was the first place we stayed and Iceland and it set the bar high. The location is very nice with great hot tubs to sit in and enjoy the views. Only complaint was the skylight in the room was a little annoying as it only got dark for a few hours when we were visiting. Breakfast was very good, second best on our trip with a very nice setup.

Thank you for your kind review.
We are now having special curtains made for the ceiling windows which will be set up before we get the summer nights again. This winter it won´t be a problem since the sun will hardly get above the horizon for a couple of months. And then it can be nice to watch the northern lights through the windows just from the bed.

We hope to see you again here at Frost and Fire

We came back to Iceland for our first anniversary, having honeymooned here last year. We wanted to travel more, so booked Frost and Fire for our first two nights.

What a great decision. Despite very rainy first night we were welcomed into a wonderfully warm and friendly guesthouse. We got the tour and were shown to a beautiful room with easy access to all of the hotel's geothermal heated areas.

Both nights we walked into the town, had a simple but tasty meal at cafe Rose, and returned for a soak in the hot tub before bed.

We had a refreshing swim before breakfast on the first morning, went off for the day, and then repeated the whole experience again but with the rain of the first night replaced by beautiful aurora displays.

Genuinely didn't want to leave.

Any downsides? Only that our room (right above the steam room) was perhaps 1 or 2 degrees too warm, but this was easily countered by opening the patio door an inch or so.

Gorgeous hotel, friendly and helpful staff, stunning location and very reasonably priced.

We will return!

Dear Guest.

Thank you so much for your review and congratulations on your first anniversary.

We are delighted to see that you have experienced everything that Frost and Fire has to offer.
This winter the northern light are supposed to shine brightly and we are always praying for a clear sky so that all of our guests will be able to experience to see them perhaps along with a shooting star for a bonus.

We are grateful for our lovely staff at Frost and Fire. They really put their heart into their work.

Until the next time, very best regards from Hveragerði

Great location on a beautiful,river, clean and stylish rooms with art from local artists on walls, no frills but clean, and very comfortable beds. At end of a long day of hiking we went from a hot tub, to a really hot tub, to a geothermally heated steam bath to a swim in the cold, clear river adjacent to the hot tubs. Then we poured ourselves into bed and slept with the sound of the river in the background and woke to the smell of coffee in the kitchen. Heaven on earth.

It is always such a pleasure to see when our guests enjoy every thing that our place has to offer. That is just our aim to give people the chance to really feel the Icelandic nature, even from their hotel room.

Thank you for your review and if you will come back next summer you will probably be able to have some mud baths here as well when you have finished the river swim if we will finish them in time for next season.
