We visited this hotel in March 2022.The hotel is in a remote location near the Skogafoss waterfall, which was beautiful. We were privileged to meet the owner since the manager was out sick during our stay. We were treated to fresh cooked dinners with lovely desserts (the lamb medallions with demi glaze were to die for!). Breakfast was a full hot meal with a selection of fresh baked breads and cake. The room was clean and included TV and WiFi. We will definitely stay here again when we return during the summer.

Very good in a pinch. Affordable and close to the falls (10 minute leisurely walk). It's a bit dated, could use a bit of brightening up, maybe new paint. Definitely could use new shower fixtures. But it was a comfortable room. The hot tub could use some tlc also. Staff was very nice. Also they include an amazing breakfast spread. 😋

Older hotel and the main floor was noisy. Excellent staff and we did enjoy the restaurant. My wife has a gluten allergy that was handed well.

This hotel has gone seriously downhill with the current owner. My first suspicions were confirmed when we arrived to find weeds growing through the brick entryway. It had obviously been neglected for some time. Also: Cobwebs and spiders in the room. Hot tub covered in green mold. Nails and screws poking out of the wall above our bed where artwork once hung. Nothing nice about the dining room, no table cloths etc. Dinner mediocre at best (said his chef was off). Again just the one owner working. No staff. Coffee machine broken. Arrived at breakfast to find a couple of undercooked sausages and a few slices of bread, no yogurt, cheese, or other things one normally finds at an Icelandic breakfast buffet. This used to be a ligit 4 star boutique property.

Hotel Skogar is a quaint hotel. The rooms are very small and you definitely smell the geothermal waters when showering. The staff was wonderful and helped us with some of our more complicated plans

The Pros: It is very close to the skogafoss waterfall and the check in process was easy. The cons: hot tub not working the night we checked in. The hot water in the bathroom's sink and shower smelled like rotten eggs (sulfur smell). It made us feel nauseous. They didnt give us an access key to the main door and one night we went to have dinner and came back around 11pm. The door was locked and we were in the rain for a little while until I knocked very loud on the door and a guy that stated that he is the owner showed up to open the door. I have never seen a hotel lock its door and leave people outside without a key. Breakfast: they will have some sausage, bacon and weird cooked eggs, some bread, ham & Cheese, juice and Yogurt. If it comes included with the reservation that is okay but otherwise its not worth paying extra for that.
