Modern and clean hotel in an amazing area, right next to one of my favorite waterfalls. Wonderful restaurant, for dinner and for breakfast. Lovely views from the restaurant area as well. It was quiet, given the time of year and a pandemic around the virtual corner… so we enjoyed our stay to the most. With special thanks to the absolute lovely lady serving us dinner and making us laugh, Christina, thank you so much! Hope to be back soon.

We stayed for one night and overall, we were underwhelmed. The location is fantastic and the place has a lot of potential but sadly this hasn’t yet been realised. Check in was quick, the room was large but with the great views that the hotel has, they are missing a trick - it would be great if there was outdoor seating off the rooms, fire pits and hot tubs to really maximise them and the views, especially given the sign at the entrance announces is it as a resort, which would imply more than a room and a restaurant. The restaurant staff were lovely but the food was only average at best. And one staff member, perhaps the manager, clearly doesn’t enjoy what he does anymore. Stay in the new rooms as the old ones looked quite shabby.

Our group had priorities in photography, so we chose specific locations such as this hotel. Therese are very typically Icelandic design properties, so you can expect comfort and location, but not luxury. Unless you have a car, you'll be hostage to all that tjhis hotel can provide, which is quite good in reality.

It is a very plain hotel with minimal in all respects, stand up heaters, no wash clothes, thin towels but in a location where wonderful pictures can be taken close by. Dinner at the restaurant for all three nights were wonderful. I had my first lamb meatballs, cod was wonderful and soup was just superb.

This was our first night of nine on our Iceland road trip, having landed at Reykjavik at 6 a.m. The location was perfect for our route, right by Gullfoss. We thought the room, service and breakfast was basic, which was a sign of the quality of lodgings throughout Iceland. Hotel Gullfoss is tucked into a bowl. The room was modern and compact, with a kettle, desk, wardrobe. The bathroom had almost no counter space and while the shower had a door, it was not sealed so water would spray into the room. We would learn this is common in Iceland. For us, breakfast seemed marginal. We also didn't appreciate the sign saying you can buy items to go, which was a veiled hint you shouldn't take any food away.
