The property location was convenient for our trip across south Iceland as not many other choices are available. The building itself and the rooms were fairly basic. Unfortunately, the shower set up allows water to leak into the room and under the bed. We were not the first people who experienced this as you could see floor damage upon inspection.

My husband and I stayed here one night while passing through and it was PERFECT! Very affordable and the rooms were so nice. Not only that but we chose to eat dinner there once we arrived and the food was OUTSTANDING. Quick service and amazing choices. Definitely would stay here again if we were in the area!

Our room was small, but the rest of the property made up for it. The food at the restaurant, while pricey, was delicious. The beef and lamb tasted incredible and the dessert was so decadent. Our server was also very sweet. My husband and I actually took a break from our meal when the staff let everyone know that you could see the northern lights outside. It was our second time seeing the lights, but it was much more vivid that night and truly magical to see.

Easy access from the main highway, great views of surrounding countryside, ample and tasty breakfast buffet. If you're exploring this area, the FossHotel Vatnajokull is a good choice. The rooms are spacious and clean, with a comfortable bed.
