The Fluðir Hotel well positioned for the Golden Circle being only 10-15 minutes drive from Gullfoss and Geysir. There is a 24 hour automated petrol station opposite so it also serves as a useful refuelling stop as well.
The hotel rooms are chalet like in style, but well furnished & modern with an unusually large choice of home UK channels (BBC1 & ITV1) on the room TV. Quite how many people get to sit outside in the sun in Iceland is questionable, but it was an aspirational idea.
Bathrooms were well fitted but strangely designed with a door outside right next to the shower. It was locked!
The restaurant in the main motel was very good.
Reasonable (for Iceland) prices, an inviting menu that was well served, and some good quality wine. It did tend to cater for large parties in the area, so choose your moment for going in there.
In summary, an excellent choice & the best I stayed at in Iceland.
As long as you are not put off by the chalet style I’d recommend staying here to tour the Golden Circle and surrounding area as an alternative to the more touristy Reykjavík.
