    The best couples short winter break

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Northern Lights Inn. It was just what we needed for a short break during the Christmas holiday. Excellent spacious room. Lovely food. We can’t wait to go back soon!

    Fabulous

    This was an amazing stay for our family. The inn is adjacent to the blue lagoon and the cute town of Grendavik. The staff was kind and sweet providing superior service. The grounds were spectacular. You can highlight your room number and the front desk will call you when the northern lights make an appearance. The staff was knowledgeable and explained how and what to look for and we did get to see them! Breakfast was great and filling for your full day ahead. Beautiful common rooms are available to sit by the fire or hang with family playing chess. Rooms were quiet, clean and comfortable. Will come back anytime and highly recommend.

    LOVED the Northern Light Inn! Great little find, walkable to Blue Lagoon. Great room and amenities, friendly service. Enjoyed the "honesty" bar, afternoon waffles and fireplace lounge. Missed out on taxi from airport at special Norther Light Inn discount so make sure you arrange that ahead of time! Highly recommend!

    Hotel was very nice and very clean! Very friendly staff! The owner of the hotel was there the night I arrived and she was very nice and friendly. She offer to let me and family know if the Northern happen to show that night. There were indeed northern lights and she went to my room to let us know so we can go outside and see the beautiful display. She actually took my soon to see the lights out!! Breakfast was included and it was very nice. Hotel is super close to Blue Lagoon and airport. I personally liked the hotel very much!

    Outstanding staff who were warm, welcoming and genuine. Brilliant spot right by a volcano, geo thermal power plant and nestled in lava fields. Brilliant dinner of fish and chips followed by Skyr cake. Breakfast plentiful. A superb first night in Iceland! Thank you, Northern Lights Inn.

    Great location for a last night in Iceland. It’s close to the airport so we didn’t have to leave really early in the morning. Great location if you want to explore the volcano nearby and also The Blue Lagoon is literally a few minutes away. Highly recommend this place. The staff were exceptional. So kind and helpful. Beautiful country. Beautiful people. I wish we could have stayed longer here to explore the area more.
