The room was extremely comfortable and the wifi was excellent. Normally, during "high traffic times" like right after dinner, hotel wifi tends to lag, but not here! Our room had a view of the parking lot, but it was still beautiful looking at the cute stores across the street with a pretty blue sky background. The view at breakfast was...

Stayed here as part of a Secret Escapes package and very impressed. Exceptional cleanliness, friendly staff and great hotel in general. Would recommend to all doing the Iceland circle tour. The restaurant and bar had a good selection of food and drinks and reasonable prices in accordance with the rest of "expensive Iceland"!

The breakfast buffet is good because there are free waffles and biscuits. When the rooms are cleaned they leave chocolates on the bed which is really good and nice. The views from the restaurant are excellent.

Lovely hotel with great views over the river. There is a wake up service for when the northern lights appear, to save you staying up half the night. Also the side of the river bank or clise to the church is a good place for viewing them. The staff are very helpful. The breakfast was a good mix. Would highly...

The restaurant in the Hotel Selfoss was so good that we drove 2 hours each way to go back again the next week. The service is a little slow, by American standards, but that's the case everywhere we went in Iceland. The restaurant overlooks a waterfront park. The hotel lobby is elegant and the front desk staff are efficient and...

A hotel that's located on the banks of a small winding river where you can enjoy views at sunrise and sunset and of course, if you are lucky, the aurora borealis. There is a restaurant-cum-bar onsite where you can have an excellent meal and enjoy half-price Icelandic beer during happy hour. The reception staff on check-in was friendly, professional and...

We were very fortunate to sight the aurora borealis just at the back of this hotel by the river! The front desk staff was great, informing everyone who passes by his desk about the appearance of Aurora!! The hotel is very comfortable! Tea & coffee with kettle in room for a quick cuppa in the morning. Always warm indoors, so...

The hotel is smart and clean, the restaurant, bar and spa are modern and stylish. The furniture and room decor was a little dated in comparison however our room over looked the river and had stunning views over to the mountains in the distance and up the river across the bridge. The facilities were good with everything we needed for...
