- Restaurants

Gistihúsið – Lake Hotel Egilsstadir is an established, family-run hotel in a farming district. It meets all modern standards of services and amenities, quality, sophistication, and comfort. Yet it faithfully maintains its ethnic origins as the hotel was founded in 1903, providing its unique atmosphere. Guests can choose between residing in rooms decorated in a romantic style with antiques in the older part of the hotel or furnished in a stylish contemporary way located in the more recent part. Gistihúsið – Lake Hotel Egilsstadir is built on the river banks of the great and beautiful Lagarfljót by the town of Egilsstaðir and is as such centrally situated in East-Iceland. It is comfortably located for transport via air or by land; only a stone's throw away from main route one and Egilsstaðir airport.

Baðhúsið – SPA is situated on the ground floor of Gistihúsið – Lake Hotel Egilsstadir. It features a comfortable, indoor hot tub (40°C) and a mild sauna that combines the comforts of the steam room and the dry sauna. Its humidity is around 60%, and it warms up to 65°C. There is also a cool sitting pool at 10°C. Relaxing areas are both indoors and outside. The view from Baðhúsið – SPA across the lake Lagarfljót is breathtaking. We want our guest's visit to the spa to be an enjoyable experience of tranquility, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Bathrobes and towels are provided in the dressing rooms. Pool Service can be provided at your convenience from our special Baðhúsið – SPA menu.
Please note: The hotel does not guarantee the security of valuable items, such as jewelry, in the dressing rooms at the spa. The age limit for the spa is 12 years old.

Eldhúsið - restaurant, the hotel's restaurant is innovative and ambitious. Eldhúsið offers Icelandic as well as international cuisine. The service is personal, cooking ingredients are fresh, local, and always of the very best quality for each season. Like the hotel itself, its cuisine is rooted in solid tradition. Still, the ingredients are now introduced with subtle changes and serve its meals with a new perspective, resulting in memorable culinary experiences. We value the quality of ingredients, and most of it is Icelandic, organic, and grown locally.

Gistihúsið - Lake Hotel Egilsstadir has cross-country skis for rent during the winter. Multiple cross-country tracks are located in close proximity to the hotel. Ask in the reception which tracks are available during your stay.
