The local is great. I had a great time on the glacier but the hotel was lacking. The hot tub is broken and I was told it has been broken for 3 months which was very disappointing. Also the restaurant at the hotel for dinner was the worst food we had the entire time on our trip and it was expensive. The breakfast was adequate but the dinner was awful and we spent over $100 US. I got better food at the gas station on the way. As for our room it seemed fine but there was something wrong with the window and it whistled in the wind which made it very hard to sleep. If you do stay here I would not close the ocean view because that is where the wind comes from and maybe it would be better on the other side of the building. The only good things I can say are the sauna was nice and the drinks were tasty.

This is a perfect location to do Jokursalon and the diamond beach. You are 20 minutes away and its a modern comfortable place to stay. The beds give you an option to add a mattress topper to make the bed softer if you prefer which was amazing! I have never been offered that before. The restaurant was also fantastic and we are there both nights of our stay. The one sad part was that the hot tubs were broken during our stay and the weather was bad so no northern lights but they have a great service to call you if they are visible! Loved our stay here.

If you are looking to see the glaciers/ice caves? This is the place to stay at. The property was absolutely excellent. Room was comfortable, modern, and clean. The food at the bar and at the restaurant was great, and amenities (sauna and jacuzzi) fit in perfectly after a 5 hour drive from the Keflavik airport. I will stay here again for sure.

Well maintained property. Chosen for the hotel amenities. Planning on a relaxing soak in outdoor spa after day of sightseeing, but 2 weeks before arrival, got message that it was closed for repair. Very disappointed but appreciate the email

No kettle provided in room. Bathroom vanity is small and the position of the tap is awkward. Room is spacious. Breakfast is good. A little tip : tour groups start their breakfast early at 7:00, the restaurant is crowded from 7:00-8:00. Also servers are not responsive enough because of the crowd.

6/10 Okay

Overall decent stay at Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon. A few negatives to write about: 1. The hot tubs were broken during our stay and we were only notified a couple days before our arrival. I know this is a secondary amenity, but honestly we were pretty bummed. We chose this hotel specifically considering them. We asked for a discount at checkin but were told no because “they wouldn’t know how to quantify a discount for this.” Seemed like a lazy response. 2. We signed up for the Aurora wake-up call for both nights we stayed at the hotel. The second night there was Aurora activity around 1am, but we never received a call. I actually woke up to the sound of other people in the hotel running outside (doors opening/closing, voices in the corridor, voices outside). If you are set on seeing the Aurora, do not rely on the hotel wake-up call. 3. Overall the service just seemed pretty tired. When we rolled up to our dinner reservation, there were five employees around the host check-in. No one greeted us, looked at us, or acknowledged our presence. They all continued with their tasks and left without acknowledgement. We stood there awkwardly for a couple minutes until someone came back to get us. This wasn’t a great first impression when you’re choosing to have dinner at the restaurant. We had some other similar interactions in other employees in the hotel. The service just seemed fatigued. For the positives: 1. Modern, clean hotel. 2. Good breakfast 3. Good location
