Think ‘Farmhouse splendour.’

The Country Hotel Vatnsholt is a gorgeous newly renovated guesthouse, set in 230 acres of farm land, beautifully located in the relaxing countryside „east of the mountain,” i.e. conveniently close to Reykjavík (the capital) and only a stone’s throw from Selfoss, the largest city in the surroundings of Reykjavík.

The residence is a former working farm with its adjoining animal housing, horse stalls and barns, all of which have been carefully converted with all the most contemporary state of the art facilities and luxury. A strikingly beautiful renovation of which we are very proud.
Vatnsholt offers quality accommodation in several different categories for up to 77 guests, 34 cozy rooms in total with comfortable beds and linens and either baths or showers.

There are 24 first rate guest-rooms with ensuite bathrooms/shower, plus 10 without a bath sharing 6 breezy bathrooms altogether.
All our rooms feature:

m Hairdryer
m High speed Wi-Fi internet access upon request

The leisure facilities within and around the building include a stylish Restaurant / Bar, an outdoor leisure area for children and lot more.

The restaurant serve high quality, seasonal produce, local game, fish and meats cooked simply, served in a relaxed, unhurried style. The bar offers a wide selection of fine wines, spirits and an array of foreign and locally brewed ales alike.

A huge parking lot on the premises.

In Vatnsholt we pride our selves in laying special emphasis on Icelandic cultural characteristics, closeness to the countryside, nature and wild life, let alone our personal albeit informal and warm touch. The management and staff are looking forward to welcoming you to Vatnsholt.
Short and sweet: Rich country charm, curled up and nourished by a classical Icelandic craftsmanship and ingenuity.
