We stayed two nights and the room were clean and modern. The hotel is close to the national park and the Glacier Lagoon. The breakfast, happy hour and restaurant are excellent. The weather was hot and our room got pretty hot as well and there was no AC to cool it down. We were happy with our stay overall.

Not worth the money. We rented the suite and quite a few things did not work well in the room.

The Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon is a full service hotel that I would compare to a Marriott or Hyatt. The rooms are large, the blackout blinds are the best I experienced in Iceland, there is a full service restaurant, gym, sauna, and hot tubs. There is a waterfall as you drive up to the property. Note that this is not by any town... a plus is you get unobstructed views of nature all around the hotel, a minus is that you are restricted to the hotel restaurant / convenience store or you must bring your own food. Would highly recommend and would stay here again when visiting the southern part of Iceland.

Our last stop driving the Ring Road before heading for 4 days in Reykjavík. We wanted a Spa to soak in and dining options near the Glacier Lagoon. While this is likely the best choice in the area, the hotel was fully booked. I booked on Expedia and it said breakfast was included I the price but it was not. While the Expedia receipt did. It itemize the breakfast prepaid with the non refundable room This was not the hotels fault. However the main issue was the spa. The water was dirty and the waiting room was strewn with towels and glasses and puddles. It seemed they were short staffed for being such a full hotel. Bed was hard as were pillows but room was nice. Still a good option for the location
