Outdoor hot tub
If you’re planning on undertaking Iceland’s prized Golden Circle Route, look no further than Hotel Grimsborgir; an owner-run boutique hotel by the beautiful River Sog. Decorated with cosy fabrics, modern décor and a crackling fireplace in the lounge, the countryside hideaway provides a rather relaxing retreat after a day’s exploring the great outdoors.
Run by the charming Ólafur and Kristín, you can be sure of some excellent service here too. The pair are more than happy to share with you their favourite spots to visit and to help organise your day’s adventures.
Soak up those sweeping views in the comfort of the outdoor hot tub or relax with one of the massages on offer.
Beyond the hotel perimeters, there’s much to see: the countryside hideaway is just a short way from the UNESCO protected Thingvellir National Park, the Gullfoss waterfall and the iconic Geysir.
Tuck into a range of Icelandic and international dishes at the hotel restaurant, which are best enjoyed alongside a handcrafted cocktail or glass of wine. In the morning, a great buffet breakfast is served with a range of hot and cold dishes, not to mention champagne if you’re so inclined.

Each of the rooms have been individually designed with care and attention to detail - expect ivory tones, wooden furnishings and colourful touches. If you’re lucky, you may even bag yourself a room with a view. Bathrooms are modern and come with the added benefit of luxe toiletries. It’s worth noting that some of the cheaper rooms can come up a little on the small side, so if you like room to stretch out we’d recommend upgrading. There are accessible rooms available for those with reduced mobility, please notify the hotel ahead of arrival.
