Lovely, quirky with fab viewsPosted Dec 16, 2013
Pros: The remoteness, the ambience and the staff.
Cons: For the price, it would have been nice to have individual shampoos / shower gels / etc, rather than a bottle stuck on the wall.
Location: Hiking up to the waterfall was very scenic and a good walk.
I was, initially, reluctant to book, as I felt it was expensive compared to the city centre hotels. However, having stayed there, I understand now. It is a lovely, relaxing environment with great views. Our few days were spent having a drink in the lounge, looking out over the bay. Relaxing in the hot tub, looking out over the bay. Reading in our room, looking out over the bay. As we were doing a lot of walking during the day, it was a lovely place to return to. The breakfast was fine. Spoiled a little by some very "grabby" guests who basically, cleared out the buffet and then sat on top of us at the table we had chosen! But that's not the hotel's fault. The food in the evening was beautifully cooked and really delicious. We chose it because there was a wake up call if the Northern Lights were visible. Unfortunately, it was too cloudy. Guess we'll just have to go back again!

The view is incrediblePosted Mar 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
The service was friendly and the breakfast has a big selection. The restaurant was quite expensive but was good food. The surroundings and view make up for any shortcomings however. It took us a couple of days to get in sync with the place. It is very remote, but it's just so picturesque and quiet you can't help but find yourself relaxing. Going for a jog or walk first thing in the fresh clean air, morning, then relaxing in the hottub then having breakfast is a fantastic way to start the day.

Hotel Glymur - the best in Iceland!Posted Sep 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
Stayed there the very last night after touring Iceland for two weeks. The hotel is absolutely charming with 24 hr impacable and very personable service, the split level suites are extremely well organized and functional and you can't beat the view from rooms and hot tubs. The food is delicious as well. Although we stayed at some very nice places, this one was absolutely the best on all counts!

Hotel GlymurPosted Sep 14, 2011 on Hotels.com
A wonderful place to stay while exploring Iceland. The Hotel staff is superb and expceptionally helpful. I spent a total of four nights and at the end of my stay, felt as if I was a member of the family. The staff even took the time late one night to call me to come outside to watch the northern lights - what a treat!

great natural environmentPosted Aug 29, 2011
I spent the night in this hotel on a lark, travelling between Boston and Helsinki. It is beautiful place (the whole country is amazing actually). Views of the sea and mountains from the hot tub and dining room!
