After 7 days on the road me and my wife found this place, we heard of some hot baths that weren’t expensive and with fabulous views. So the hot tubs are nice, the water in the first is a little colder than the second one,...More

Arrived there and were right away asked to pay - no introduction to the facilities. Kitchen was dirty and really really cold. We didn’t sit in there. There is just a toaster and some pans, the sink is broken. The bathroom was okay but also...More

Grettislaug is a small, quiet hotpot, found at the end of long local road. In the summer, any car can get to it but in the winter it might be harder for basic cars to reach. It is nothing fancy but is well maintained and...More
