We were looking forward to our stay here, but honestly disappointed. Reception was cold and not particularly friendly. The room was tiny. Beds were very comfortable. The restaurant was crowded and the food just okay. Servers felt relatively new, minimally trained and disengaged. Breakfast was also just okay. The room hallway was cluttered with restaurant serviceware. Additionally, we noticed a random slipper that had been dropped in the hallway. It was there at 7pm when we checked in and still there the next morning at 11am when we checked out. Location was an easy 15-minute drive to the Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach. Not a lot of hotel choices in the immediate area, but we'd make another selection if we traveled there again. For the price of the rooms and the unique location, a little friendliness and personality would make a real difference in guest experience. Between the room and dinner for two, we spent over $500 USD for the overnight stay ... and not one staff member thanked us.

We had a great stay! The rooms were clean, comfortable and dark! The restaurant was AMAZING for both dinner and the breakfast buffet. The cost was more than I would normally spend but it was worth every dime. The only thing we were not thrilled about was the reservation system for the hot tubs and the fact that they were not very hot. Regardless, awesome place to stay!

Our room was on the lower level which looked out over the tundra toward the ocean. It felt a bit like sleeping in a cave. But the restaurant was fabulous!

Nice room and amenities with on-site parking. Has great blinders for the window too that helped with the sunlight for bedtime. Location is a bit remote so you'll likely eat at their restaurant or need to prepare that beforehand. Great hot tubs too!

We enjoyed our stat in this modern and cosy hotel Only bad experience was the restaurant that was undersized for the size of the hotel which gave us a feeling of being rushed as the hotel was full and restaurant was stuffed with people,the restaurant staff was busy and a little rude,a shame because the food was excellent. We would recommend other guests to skip the restaurant and eat in the bar that have a small menu with some good options and at a more reasonable price and in a non rushed environment.

Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon is a really cool property. When we first pulled up, the contrast of the black hotel against the green hills was amazing. The hotel had really spacious rooms, a great restaurant, trendy decor, and was 15 minutes away from the Glacier Lagoon. Another benefit was that they have a charging station for electric vehicles. A very enjoyable stay.

Beautiful setting. All on its own. Even a little waterfall next door. Very nice room & view. Sauna and hot tub get crowded, even as they try to control access.
