Pros: Everything- amazing cottage with a great view. Very modern and clean. We so enjoyed staying there. Fantastic breakfast too and an absolutely lovely host. We felt very welcomed and regretted we were not able to extend our stay.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A very beautiful guesthouse - there are only four cottages - in a quiet location with fantastic views of the river nearby, and further afield - among others - the Hekla and Eyafjallajökull volcanoes (and yes, after extensive practicing we now know how to pronounce the name correctly in Icelandic). The cottage is very clean and comfortable and fully equipped, including a terrace where we could enjoy the sunny weather. The breakfast is extensive with delicious homemade bread, fresh coffee or tea (as much as you wanted), cereal and all kinds of spreads. Ragnhildur is a very nice owner/hostess, who is always willing to give tips to make the day's trips even more pleasant and beautiful. The first evening she knocked at the door to draw our and the other guests attention of the Northern Lights. Otherwise we would certainly have missed that. In short, we really enjoyed the wonderful stay and will gladly return.
Cons: Nothing. It was more than perfect.

Pros: Modern cabin with everything you would want and absolutely spotless. The view in the morning from the room was astonishing! Having the chance to witness the northern lights during our stay was a huge bonus and a once in a lifetime experience for us! The breakfast in the morning was more than expected, fresh homemade bread, warm waffles and a huge variety to select from. Very friendly host more then willing to provide information and entertainment guests. Would highly recommend this gem!
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved this place and wished we could have stayed longer! Firstly, the host Ragnhildur, was in contact with me way before our arrival. She gave us directions and was concerned when I told her that our driver will drop us off and pick us up the next morning, which means we do not have a car to go out for dinner! She suggested we eat in the town first and even made arrangements for a taxi to come get us later! In the end, we packed some food and checked in, so it was not a problem. There are 4 cabins and we were in the first one. What a lovely cabin it was, as you enter, the bathroom is on the left and on the right a kitchenette (note; there is no mocrowave but it has a stovetop). The sitting area faces the kitchenette with the bed next to it There is a sliding door to walk out to the balcony which overlooks the river. there are chairs to sit too but it was too cold! Still we enjoyed our packed meal with a bottle of wine, sitting inside but looking out to the wilderness! Ragnhildur lives onsite with her family and she was so pleasant and warm and welcoming. Breakfast the next morning was served in a little dining area adjoining her house. We loved the freshly baked breads! But best of all, we saw the Northern lights! It came on earlier than expected and Ragnhildur came knocking at our door to tell us the Lights are here! What a beautiful sight it was to have the sky lit up!
Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What can I say? We saw dancing Northern Lights beeing cuddled under a blanket from inside the cabin.

Pros: The host was very nice whenever we asked questions; she answered to my questions very much in detail. Given that it was my first time visit in Iceland, this was very helpful.
Cons: I did like breakfast but it would have been better if there were more kinds of breads and fruits as I do not eat yogurts, hams, and cheese.

Cons: Nothing!
6.3 Good
Pros: The guesthouse was close to the golden circle and can be reached easily. The room and bathroom have been clean so far. We didn‘t need to share the bath, because nobody else used it this night.But it might also be that one need to share it with at least 3 other room. The host offered also breakfast. Coffee and tee and some sweets were free all over the day - which has been pretty generous.
Cons: The kitchen is huge and has plenty of stuff for cooking and eating, BUT it definitely need some more love and care! Unfortunately, parts of it has been kind of scruffy. When we were there, nobody else was cooking, but it seemed that nobody had been really cleaned up the last time. It‘s sad, because the kitchen area could be still even more comfortable to everybody. Concerning the breakfast... in contrast to what was written here, we didn‘t experienced selfmade products. It seemed to be a lot of choice, but it has been pretty simple products, that appeared also to be kind of old, not fresh or something. We would recommend less stuff, but a little bit more quality.

9.2 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location. We saw salmon jumping in the river and wildlife around.Beautiful spot! We had a car so town was close for us.
Cons: Missed turnoff first time and had to return........minor problem
6.7 Good
Pros: Liked the great room, the fact that it was right on the river and it had a hot tub.(it was way too windy to use and was not sure where to get towels for it) There was a coffee bar in the dining room with cookies. . Very clean. They had votive candles lit lining the hallway where our room was. Nice touch with very nice scent. Parking was very handy.
Cons: No coffee with hot pot in your room. The room was very simple...absolutely no frills. Beds too soft as were the pillows. Two Asian sisters own? Or run the place. One speaks little English. The older sister showed us our room, explaining to us the window was open to bring in fresh air. Not sure if she was being truthful. Window was open because (as we discovered) the room is HOT!! We could not find the thermostat and we looked! Could not keep the window open because it was storming! Plus, no soap in the dispenser in the shower. Our biggest problem: we wanted something light to eat that evening. There were men eating in the dining room with what looked like a buffet. My husband asked the younger sister(who spoke little English) about the buffet. She said,’ yes, eat. Get what you want. No problem’ . As we were eating, we realized the men in the dining hall were there for a fishing tournament and the buffet was specifically for them which they paid for. We felt bad. We ate very little. The older sister came in and told us she would have to charge us. I understood. However, the next day she charged us $80!! The more I thought about it the madder I got. The fishermen had paid for that buffet for so many men....if anything they could have requested $$ from us. I don’t believe the two women lost any $$ over it. I believe they made a nice chunk of change on us. The breakfast was not included, but I paid on line $19 for each of us for breakfast when I made the reservation. It’s not worth it. The bacon was half cooked and cold. My husbands eggs were cold, mine barely lukewarm. There were some cold pastries, cheese, cold baked beans right out of the can. Was not impressed.

Pros: Great little hotel, perfect place for seeing the northern lights from your bedroom window! Very friendly staff and a lovely breakfast
Cons: Very clean and in a great location a little off the beaten track
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were intrigued at first when we ended up on a dirt road leading to what seemed like nowhere however, we ended up at this idyllic farm house style hotel. The food was great! (the asparagus soup was insane!) If you’ve been travelling for a while and miss a home cooked meal this is where you want to be! The best part though was waking up early to walk up the “hill” behind the car park. As you’re going, you end up at the top of a ridge and all of the sudden the view hits you in the face! Highly recommend
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was the 2nd time we stayed at Hotel Selid. Clean, simple, quiet rooms. The rate was great. Would have preferred the corner rooms (which we had the 1st time) for more space but they were booked up during our stay. Still happy with the regular room we got. Fantastic location for watching the Northern Lights because it's away from the main road and has big empty fields and a small hill around it where we can move around easily to capture the Lights. Staff was very friendly. Dinner is available (upon request) which is helpful if guests don't want to go out after a long day's trip. Breakfast is satisfactory. It's a good base for exploring the south coast. We did 2 days of Super Jeep tours to the Highlands, and the tour provided free pickup/dropoff at Hotel Selid. There are hiking trails going up to the hill with panoramic views of the area. I will stay here again.
Cons: Would have preferred more lights in the room. A bit too dark for reading at night.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of the comfiest beds I’ve ever slept in! The location is great and the scenery is beautiful. The view from my room was gorgeous. I was traveling alone and felt very safe.

7.9 Good
Pros: Host German girl was welcoming. House overall is just lovely! Especially kitchen and living area. if you like animals, you'll love this place, 3 beautiful dogs around and horses. Sunrise view in the morning is amazing!
Cons: Choose room in the main building as our room was outside and it was really cold. Way to bathroom is 5 sec walk, through outside though and its very cold after shower. I booked this place because of the hot tub available, but apparently we arrived late and unfortunately it was not possible to use it.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Two lovely friendly dogs Great breakfast Cookies Friendly hosts
Cons: Arrived a little earlier and should have gone to barn to find owner rather than sending booking agency an email
7.1 Good
Pros: Beautiful setting and we'll maintained
Cons: I can not recommend this property. The owner refused a cancellation four months before a stay. The owner was aware we'd arrive late but was angry when we were talking as we got out of our car. The owner wanted her payment before we had even woke up after a long flight. The owner didn't give us the rooms we booked but gave us the beds for number of travelers but did not decrease the price. She was very short the next morning and was unpleasant to our group. We were overcharged by 20.00. The property was beautiful but if you are a younger traveler with kids I wouldn't recommend.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We were welcomed by the hosts and they took good care of us during our stay. The cabin is very cute and clean and breakfast was very, very good. Views from the property are amazing. It was one of the nicest places we stayed at in Iceland.

Overview Reviews
With a stay at Guesthouse Flúðir - Grund in Hrunamannahreppur, you'll be 1 mi (1.6 km) from Secret Lagoon and 13 mi (20.9 km) from Skalholt Historical Site. Free self parking is available onsite.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Clean & spacious enough for 3 of us. Huge bathroom too. Good sofa, nice bed. Just next to Secret Lagoon, we had a good time there. Given 20% discount by the guesthouse. Superb fish n chip at Secret Lagoon made our night. Great bath facilities, though a door to separate the bath from toilet area would be great.
Cons: There’s a thin strip of transparent glass next to the door From ceiling to floor which enables people outside able to peek in,that’s a very strange design. We felt there’s lack of privacy due to the weird design of front door.. the rooms are at a separate building from breakfast place so we had to gear up completely just for breakfast. The gravel path from carpark to rooms makes it very difficult to bring our luggage to the room.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location inside the golden circle and close to the secret lagoon (even tough we didn’t go, we didn’t know it opens so late in winter)
Cons: The restaurant was not as cosy as on the pictures. There was a really bad smell in the room when we arrived, supposedly coming from a mushroom farm in the area...or maybe from the bathroom. We don’t know. It went away after opening the windows and pulling water in the bathroom. In winter the road 30 from fludir to Gulfoss is very snowy so can be dangerous to drive!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Everything was nice and the room looked like a brand new install. Good breakfast, facilities nice and clean. Additional discount for secret lagoon, restaurant available at the location. Large parking just in front. Nearby supermarket and a gas station. Staff was helpful and friendly.
Cons: That gas station was actually in front of the property, so cars would pull in occasionally to get gas, until late evening. Not a big issue for us, as we were in the last (furthest) room from the parking.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything about the Ranga was excellent. The rooms are beautiful-either looking toward the north for a glimpse of the Northern Lights or to the south toward the nearby Ranga river. The included breakfast is amazing and the service was outstanding. A true luxury experience from the restaurant, to the hot tubs, to the common areas with pool table and great seating areas. The best thing about the Ranga is that owner Fridrik Pallson personally greets every guest and makes you feel like a valued and welcome guest at his hotel.
