Cute and cozy hotel between adventure locations in south Iceland. Great to have a restaurant on site. Loved the wake up call for the Northern Lights, and we were lucky enough to see them during our one night stay! The single floor layout and the open space surrounding the property make it an ideal location to photograph the Lights. The staff was friendly and helpful, keeping us apprised of weather and driving conditions. We would definitely stay here again.

A MUST stay when in the area!
This is by far one of the best stays during my trip and i was glad it was for 2 nights. The location was slightly remote, but that is what makes it special. Views of nothingness is where the chance of auroras are the best. They also have a aurora alarm. The rooms are clean, the breakfast was THE BEST! Selection was good. Staffs are all friendly and helpful!

Great location to see Northern Lights
Great location to see the Northern Lights even though we were not able to see during our stay. The front desk offered to wake us if they saw them so we didn't need to stay up after a long flight and drive even though we did. Christian the manager went above and beyond by helping us with a dead battery with our car using his own personal car.

Luxurious hotel in he middle of nowhere
I loved my stay here! It was like a retreat in a remote area. The lounge area has great views and they have happy hour for drinks that was fun. The food at the restaurant was excellent and I would certainly recommend it. The staff is very nice too. I would stay here again.

Mold in bathrooms
Check in was easy. Lobby and restaurant were nice. However, when I got to my room there was a large crack in the door. Actual room was fine, basic. But bathrooms had mold on the ceiling in next to the toilet. Asked the front desk if there was another room without mold to which the front desk attendant very nicely asked, "is that too much mold?" Then they showed me room 42 which was clean and said that they would move me to that room. An attendant then brought back a key to room 43 (which had a different color mold on the ceiling but nothing near the toilet). It was late and I was tired to I just stayed there. I stayed at a few Fosshotels during my stay in Iceland. This one didn't seem to live up to certain standards.

The hotel is very nice and the setting is incredible. Views to the mountain and the glacier backdrop, with clear surroundings that make it ideal for northern lights sightings. Good food and comfortable rooms. The bathroom was a mess, though. Not renovated and the shower is level with the floor, with only a small curtain separating it from the rest of the bathroom. Impossible to shower without getting the floor wet and having to use every other towel to dry it off.
