Accommodation

Hótel Geirland offers a total of 40 rooms. Cozy and comfortable with great views over the mountains where the northern lights appear on beautiful nights. In the main hotel building as well as in the restaurant complimentary WiFi for the guests is provided.

Hótel Geirland surroundings provide beautiful walking routes along with hiking routes with a level of difficulty for everybody.

The famous “Kirkjugólf” (church floor) is just west of the river. There you can see incredible forms of columnar basalt stone slabs, a wonder of nature´s endless possibilities. According to the late geologist Sigurður Þórarinsson the slabs are from 1065. The church floor was preserved in 1987 as one of Icelandic nature´s wonders. Nearby is Kirkjubæjarklaustur, a nun monastery from 1186-1550. Many historic places and names are a reminder of the monastery, e.g. Systrastapi, Stjórnarfoss, Fjarðárgljúfur and Systrafoss.

It takes only 50 minutes to drive to Skaftafell National Park and one and a half hours to glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón.

Simple and Clean

Reviewed on August 15, 2021 by S8550IBkaris Review from TripAdvisor

We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip to Southern Iceland. We stayed in the main building which reminded me of college dorms - hallway of rooms and a small common area. The rooms were simple but very clean and comfortable. Worked great for our family of 5 because we could get a double and triple room. Sits right up against the mountains and there's a waterfall within walking distance. They serve breakfast at the hotel and there is a great restaurant in the nearby town for dinner. Highly recommend this delightful place.

We stayed here part of an Arctic Adventures 3 day tour. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had great wifi connections. The restaurant was fantastic for dinner with delicious food and great presentation They even had happy hour with surprisingly good red wine. One of the nights we saw the Northern lights in the back of the hotel and didnt even have to go anywhere. So convenient.

Comfortable room and good dinner

Reviewed on March 12, 2021 by HilaryJA Review from TripAdvisor

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a small group tour. Our room was in the main accommodation block and was comfortable and spacious but simply furnished. The menu in the dining room was good and the cod, Atlantic char, lamb fillet and lava chocolate cake were especially good. Breakfast was continental style and also good.

Near to explore Glaciers - foodwise very good

Strategic point to explore the region and to relax with excellent food in the evening. This place was a very good discovery. More used by groups, as under management of a travel organisation.
Very friendly staff, great breakfast, clean large rooms. Some bungalows have a very nice view.
