    A great stay
    Had a great stay at the hotel, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff pleasant and very helpful when we needed some assistance. The hot tubs don't have jets but they were still nice and warm given that it was a little chilly outside. I would definitely return to Hotel Grimsborgir.

    The place was amazing. Great hospitality. As far as I can tell all the family rooms come with their own private hot tub. It wasn’t in the hotel description so a nice surprise to an already great experience.

    Wonderful Icelandic hospitality @ Golden Circle
    Wonderful service from beginning to end. Beautiful locale and impeccably clean rooms , with convenient hot tubs located so near . Location in the Golden circle means most attractions we wanted to visit was within an hours easy drive or less away. We had both breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed the food very much . We even managed to catch a ABBA tribute band performance which was fun and enjoyable. Thank you specially to beautiful Maria at the front desk who was ever so helpful and warm . Highly recommended.

    Outstanding service
    This is a wonderful hotel. Great service, lovely dining, meals are top of the line. We had such a wonderful time. Even called our room when Northern lights were out. The hotel really made our trip.
    Robert, us3 night romance trip
    Very good 8.0
    Nice Hotel
    Our stay was very nice. Bedroom and bedding was excellent. My only issue was with the pricing in the restaurant. On average we spent between $300 and $400 USD per dinner for 2 adults and an 11 year old. Granted this did include alcohol. The menu was rather lackluster. Nothing innovative. I don't mind spending $ on something special or different. The staff was exceptional and the location great. With all that Iceland has to offer I would not stay longer than 2 nights.

    Our stay at Hotel Grimsborgir was wonderful. Rented two 4 bedroom apartments. There was plenty of room for our party of 19. (12 adults and 7 children). The included breakfast was a bonus.

    Peaceful and Perfect!
    Our experience at this hotel was excellent. We stayed here 3 nights, removed from Reykjavik and it was the best decision ever. We felt relaxed surrounded by the natural beauty and landscape. The tour bus picked us up at the hotel early right after breakfast, and it was very convenient since touring from the city is very far. It rained for our complete stay, but we stilled toured and returned here to relax. I recommend this hotel!
