We stayed in a few hotels while touring Iceland, and Hotel Grimsborgir was by far the best! Christine behind the dest could not have been more pleasant, helpful, and wonderful!!! We stayed a total of 4 nights here and were very sad to leave. Spotless and new, with a great design. Very comfortable beds, spacious rooms and great bathrooms! Hot... More

Beautifully appointed public area with bright colorful furnishings. The bedrooms were in separate buildings a little way from the main building but were attractively furnished, delightful and comfortable.

My son and I selected this hotel to stay at for our last night in Iceland. It was a bit of a splurge, but worth it. It seemed brand new, and American style. There was even Kleenex in the room, which was a first after two weeks of travelling around Iceland. The beds were super comfortable, and I got a... More

Hotel is in a very nice location to the north of Selfoss, spread out as a number of large lodges across quite a wide area. It is actually a very nice area to have a walk around. Rooms are extremely well appointed and comfortable, with a balcony. My wife had a very nice bath when we arrived. Main hotel building... More

Great hotel in the Golden Circle area. Family of 5 had a 4 bedroom apt which was wonderful There were two bathrooms (only one shower - but it ended up being fine), and a large and new kitchen, family room area. Very nice. Hot tub on the porch. Wonderful windows throughout. Dinner is a buffet - they have everything on... More

This is a C quality hotel. Rooms are OK, but no hand soap, no wash cloths, etc. WIFI is erratic. Probably with a different owner who believes he has "wisdom" this could be a great place. Restaurant is weirdly decorated. Food is atrocious for dinner.

The hotel is quite new and set in the beautiful Pingvellir national park next to the lake. It has a American country hotel style that is classy and comfortable. Our room is of a nice size and very comfortable bed. Bathroom is also nicely appointed. We did not have dinner but the breakfast was excellent. We finally found somewhere that... More

The hotel is in a very good location in the middle of the golden circle. The breakfast buffet is above average, but the service could have been better. We had a buffet on one of the evenings and this was not very good at all, so we chose to eat elsewhere or BBQ at our bungalow for the remainder of... More

This may be the best in that remote area, but it has surprising combination of modern, cheesy, good and bad. Our room was modern and lovely and not any smaller than many European rooms. The restaurant is bizarre. The decor reflects the owner's taste and past life as owner of a night club in Reykavik. Live dinner music was American... More

Hotel Grimsborgir seems to want to be a high destination resort in a place where, well, one is unlikely to go for a high end destination resort. For instance, white and pink linen tablecloths in a cavernous barn of a restaurant with a pianist? Hmm. And the food was "meh." Despite the oddness, our room was spacious and nicely done.... More
