We chose this place because it had nice reviews and also because options in towns are quite limited anyway. It might have been nice in the past but the service is now unfriendly (close to glacial actually) and the worst we've encountered in Iceland!
We were given the keys by a grumpy-looking woman who explained nothing about the place or the area. She just handed us a town guide and that was it.
The worst was to come! We had booked long in advance (9 months) to be sure to have a apartment because we would be arriving from a tiring glacier walk and wanted to relax in the hot tub before going to bed. Indeed, in the room, a sign said the tub was available from 8:00 to 23:30.
So in we jumped at approx 22:30 and...nothing! Impossible to turn the bubbles on. After a while, I decided to brave the freezing cold & ran to the guesthouse to ring the bell. The same woman answered. I told her we could not turn the tub on. What was her answer? I quote: "it was left on all night last night (like that's my problem if she forgot to turn it off the day before), so we decided not to bother with it today". Yes, you've read well: she forgot to switch it off the day before we arrived so decided that guests that day could *** off and would not be able to use a facility advertised averywhere on their webpage!!!!! I was speechless with shock.
So my conclusion is don't bother with these rude people and stay somewhere else where advertised features are actually available!
Hot tub not available.
We stayed in Frumskógar Guesthouse for a couple of days, and took daytrips around the south of iceland at day, and bathed , went to the sauna, and were lucky enough to see the most amazing northern lights, while outside, in the hot tub. We were 4, and shared a studio apartment.That was a very cheap sollution. We could by brekfeast, but we had a kitchen in the apartment, so we ate there and made lunch.
Be aware, that there are no restaurants in town !! So plan to eat in the nearby towns ( 15 min. away ) and stock up during day from the supermarket. Hveragerði has got the mist amazing walking paths though, to a warm natural hot tubs and steamy grounds. Otherwise a little boring small town.
Unbelievebly silent. Hot-tub & Sauna ( free & open all day round ) , free internet , rather cheap studio apartments .
Family - owned , very charming & helpful.
