We stayed three nights at the Frost and Fire - and had only planned to stay one night. It was close to many active steam vents and to parts of the golden circle, but thats not why we loved it so much.

We were almost the only guests at the hotel for all three nights. The hotel has several hot pots, and a pool filled with naturally heated water. It also has an amazing natural steam room. The rooms overlook a river that flows by and several constantly steaming vents - some coming up out of the parking lot! We spent a lot of time enjoying beers in the hot tub, steam room, and even jumping into the nearly frozen river before getting back into the hot pot. Complimentary robes in the rooms made getting to and from the hot pots in the blowing snow much more enjoyable. Heated floors in the spacious rooms were an added bonus. We found this place to be very private, and cozy.

The staff was polite but distant, which we found typical in Iceland. Breakfast was generous and delicious.

If we ever take another trip to Iceland, we'll be staying here without hesitation.

We loved this place. Reading some of the other reviews makes me doubt whether we were at the same establishment! Maybe it makes a difference whether you're in the original house or one of the new buildings. We had room 4 in the original house, which has the benefit of being above the sauna, so it feels like under-floor heating. Nobody asked us to remove our shoes; and there was no skylight in this room, just a lovely high-pitched ceiling that made the room seem airy and spacious.

The room was comfortable, although the pillows weren't that good and the sheets were barely big enough to cover the mattresses. The whole place is very stylish, down to the crockery and tablemats at breakfast. Breakfast itself was lavish, with delicious fresh bread and all the usual cheeses, salami, smoked trout, tomato, cucumber, cottage cheese etc etc.

The geothermally heated sauna, swimming pool and hot tub are just gorgeous. Sitting in the hot pot at night, watching the stars, was heavenly. And we even saw the Northern Lights on our second night, which was a fabulous surprise.

The owner very kindly let me use his computer and printer to check in for our flight, which was a great help. This was a good base for the Golden Circle, and Hveragerdi is a delight in itself. I'd gladly go back here.

A really nice place to stay. They have hot springs coming out of the earth directly beneath the hotel and use them for heating the sauna and for the water in the pools, one suitable for swimming some meters. The rooms are equipped with original paintings from several different Icelandic artists and offer a stunning view over the landscape. Of course, breakfast is above the average, and the price is quite good for Iceland, just about 120 Euros per night. Though they could invest in better pillows and mattress covers. A short drive away you’ll probably find one of the most impressing sceneries of geothermal activity in the surrounding mountains, but be prepared with minimum hiking equipment like good shoes.

We stayed one night here in July during our 10-day drive around Iceland. Thankfully, it was no longer than that. I don't mind taking off my shoes before entering as long as what I am entering is worth it. But come on! An 8X10 foot room with vinyl faux wood flooring that is peeling up? Or a stained comforter? How about the toilet where you had to slide in SIDEWAYS and mash your knees against the wall. No table. No chairs. Barely a bathroom. Just 2 uncomfortable and separated single beds, and a very small open shelf for clothes. We have stayed in Europe before, but this room was much smaller than any we had been in during other travels, or while in Iceland this year. And to demand that you take off your shoes? Give me a break. Our suggestion: STAY AWAY form this one.

We spent two nights here at the end of our holiday in Iceland because of its proximity to the Golden Circle and closeness to Reykjavik and the airport. In that aspect it was well chosen but was slightly disappointing otherwise. Our room was a reasonable size but as stated in previous reviews the skylight is a real problem in the summer months - sleeping is very difficult. The bed was fairly comfortable and it was nice to have a sofa in the room. The bathroom was a little small and the basin was cracked.

Breakfast was very basic with a self-service system in a kitchen piled with dirty dishes from guests who had eaten earlier.

The hotel is in a nice position out of the town and with geothermal activity in the hillside behind the rooms. Having a balcony to sit on was nice although the scaffolding and asbestos-looking sheets separating it from others were a little off-putting.
