Named after the nearby Glymur Waterfall – one of the highest falls in Europe – the hotel offers a homely and welcoming atmosphere within resplendent and tranquil surroundings. Uniquely designed and packed with folkloric wood carvings, colourful ceramics, brightly woven rugs and an assortment of Icelandic trinkets, the Glymur is like an art gallery and hotel in one.
There are a total of 22 well-appointed and comfortable splitlevel rooms, 3 suites and 6 private villas. All rooms feature en suite bathroom and living room while some have geothermal, mountainside hot tubs which boast spectacular panoramic views of Hvalfjörður and if you are here at the right time of year, the Northern Lights.
The hotel also features an excellent restaurant, a library and piano bar. With Reykjavik just 45 minutes drive away, the bright lights and fascinating sights of the vibrant capital are within easy reach.
