Vatnsholt is conveniently located 70 km from Reykjavik with an easy access from the main highway, only 16 km from the nearest town of Selfoss where you will find all the modern comforts a town has to offer.
It’s insanely unhygienic to put pillows that has never been washed as a pillow for your head to sleep on! How do I know they haven’t been washed? The cover was not removable from the pillow and it had some hair on it from a previous customer. I would like an answer from the hotel on why they think it’s acceptable to have unwashable pillows in the bed? If the cover is not removable you cannot wash it unless you are going to throw the whole pillow in the machine, which im sure you do not. So disgusting. Got that unwashed pillow plus one clean which was super thin and lumpy! Neither me nor my boyfriend were happy and we almost left. Never again…

This was one of the best hotel’s we stayed at in our time in southern Iceland. It was very clean, quiet, we had a beautiful room and the breakfast was fantastic! They even had gluten free bread for me at breakfast.

The trademark of Iceland, the great Geysir, gave the hotel its name and Geysir is situated right outside the front door of the hotel. Haukadalur is one of Iceland's most famous historical sites, both ancient and today. The farmer's son from Haukadalur, Sigurdur Greipsson, founded a sports school in his father's inheritance at Haukadalur, which he operated with his wife Sigrun Bjarnadottir for a period of forty-three years. Today Hotel Geysir is run by descendant of Sigurdur Greipsson, Mar Sigurdsson (youngest son of Sigurdur and Sigrun) and his wife Sigridur Vilhjalmsdottur along with their children, Mabil Groa and Sigurdur.The Geysir-Center, which is directly opposite the geothermal area of Geysir and Strokkur, consists of a whole building complex with elegant restaurants, souvenir shop, outdoor and clothing store, snack shop, Geysir museum with multimedia show and camping area. Also there is a golf course, fishing, hiking trails, outdoor paradise the Haukadalur woods, Langjokull glacier tours and other activities such as highland tours. Therefore it is perfect for day trips because of many different possibilities of entertainment. His landmark of Iceland is a spectacular natural phenomenon beyond description. The geothermal field surrounding the Great Geyser is the definitive geyser, having given its name to the geological phenomena. The Strokkur, another famous geyser located nearby, gives a performance every few minutes, shooting a tower of water and steam 30 meters into the air. There are other attractions apart from the magnificent geysers. For example, Blesi, a hot spring with water the colour of turquoise delights the senses. Walking about this natural wonder, one experiences the intensity of the forces of nature. Night time offers a fascinating view of the bubbling hot springs and the northern lights. A pot of boiling water takes on new dimensions.We place great pride in that all are equally pleased at the arrival and departure and your stay will be pleasant and memorable.Hotel RoomsThe hotel has twenty four double studio rooms in bungalows beside the river and twelve rooms in one wing, just two minutes from the thermal fields.All in all, this has to be the perfect framework for rest, relaxation, and getting charged up for the next activity. Access for disabled people is available both in hotel rooms, restaurants and toilets.The hotel has hot tub indoor with water from the geser, which are good to relax after a walk around the area. Iceland is an island capable of tempting visitors to a host of activities. One should however not forget that vacations are also for taking advantage of time by relaxing body and soul to the utmost. To reach this level of relaxation it is essential that the surroundings be conducive to this.
We stayed at hotel Geysir in early June, we should have been staying at Hotel Litli Geysir but we were upgraded by the hotel and wow what an amazing experience. The room was a Delux room and so beautiful. The bed was like sleeping on marshmallows, a lovely bathroom and views of the Geysir from our room. We are in the restaurant and the food was exceptional. As it was our anniversary the hotel gave us a free glass of fizz which just made our evening. This hotel is truly fabulous and I hope we return one day, highly recommend if you are in Iceland

Our initial room was very basic and in the old part of the hotel so we asked for an upgrade and for 80 euros extra we had a fabulous room with view of the Reynisfjara Rock outcrop. Beautiful room spacious and modern very clean and lovely bathroom. So I advise asking for an upgrade if possible. We ate in the hotel restaurant, lovely buffet and so much choice. Very good value and lovely helpful staff. Great hotel for 1 night if travelling along the South Iceland coast

We had a reservation, but due to a violent snowstorm, the Ring Road was closed, and we couldn't get out of Reykjavik. I emailed the hotel and explained why we couldn't get there, but they still charged us for the rooms.

My boyfriend and I got a night there as a gift. In the two hours before dinner we had two bears each in our room that we had with us. At dinner we ordered a glass of red vine each. We took a few sips and we don’t remember anything after that, except flashes of few seconds of memory after that. We remember a glimps of us in our room, and I have an odd memory of someone coming into our room and remember saying “I thought we left the do not disturb sign on the door”. Next thing I know I am standing, naked! (except for my skirt) somewhere in a hallway. While all this was going on, my boyfriend gained conciusness in our bed, and I was nowhere to be seen. He went outside to the hallway and saw my pink underwear lying on the ground near our room. He panicked and started to look for me. He ran out the door in the hallway to check the hot tubs and then sees me in the window, holding my chest to cover me and looking confused. This is exactly the moment I was there. He screamed my name, I look up and have never in my life been so reliefed. Turns out I wasn’t far from our room, he ran inside and put his shirt on my. The worst part about this is, that when we went to speak to the guy at the desk he got super defensive, told us there was nothing he could do. We started asking him questions about the room keys, how many times our room was opened that night. He told us only the two of us did. How could he know that? My boyfriend had a view of his computer and the desk guy did not even check the computer. He didn’t want to check their cameras or help us in any way. The only thing he could do was let the police in Hella know (being locals we know for sure that’s not going to help us in any way). He complained about us not paying for dinner. We had no idea we left without paying, we would never do such thing but like I said before, a few sips of the red vine and everything went black. When we got back to the room I see my glass of red vine on the table. It wasn’t nearly empty. Thank god for that because now we can have it tested. It must have been a strong dose, because this happened so fast and we have a high tolerance for sedatives. Something that perv did not see coming because we have a feeling we woke up much sooner than we were supposed to. We suspect the staff or bartender spiking our drinks. So please, by all means stay away from this hotel from hell. Iceland is full of much nicer and not dangerous hotels.

360° Boutique Hotel & Thermal Baths is a new family-run luxury hotel situated in the beautiful countryside of the South of Iceland. The hotel, which opened in August 2018, is placed on a top of a hill and has a 360° view of the most astonishing mountains and volcanoes on the South Coast. This 4-star luxury lodge offers spacious and modern suites and deluxe rooms. All the rooms have high ceilings and large open windows featuring a beautiful view to ensure the best stay possible. All guests have access to a spa which includes a pool with warm geothermal water, a sauna, and a relaxing lounge with fire. Due to the richness of the minerals in the water bathing is said to have therapeutical and healing benefits. The size of the hotel, 13 rooms, provides the owners with an opportunity to offer their guests a very personal and attentive service. The guests frequently say that the hotel feels like a home away from home. Therefore it is not surprising that many of them choose to stay at the hotel for several days while exploring the amazing landscape and nature in the South of Iceland. Another quite unique thing about the hotel is the dining experience which can be explained as a community host table. In the evening a three-course dinner from local produce is served and all the guests are seated together at two long tables. The diners enjoy this culinary experience in the company of each other. They get to know each other and share their travel stories. Some have even formed a friendship with their fellow travelers. 360 hotel is where the past and the present meet – modern, central, and with all the magic of Iceland. All in all, our design style is about minimalistic, timeless, and classy interiors that remain warm and inviting, and are as much about function as style, with strong, clean lines and without a hint of excess.
Spent 3 nights here and was hugely impressed. Fabulous views from all sides of the hotel, excellent bedroom, superb outdoor hot springs, and the breakfasts/dinners were very impressive. Well located to get out and explore local sights during the day. All in all, a top hotel. Anna and Olafur have a wonderful place here.
