Small place, not a village, but the buildings look nice from the outside (we didn’t go in). But I don’t think it is worth it to go there just for that.

It’s a hotel. . . and a restaurant. Having visited Wolin, Poland during their Viking Slav Festival, I was looking forward to rich Viking history in the country discovered by Vikings. Sadly, I saw Viking-lite. Their festival in June is like a carnival but with...More

We went to this place two days after each other & it was never open. Very disappointed as there isn’t that much to do in Iceland. Many other people were parking & walking to it only to be let down.

This is a fun little area to stop and take some good pictures and see some interesting sculptures. The area is small but lots to see. So glad we stopped.

Stunning, cosy, warm, quaint and friendly place with reasonable prices, good breakfast. Best place to stay when you'll stay in Iceland just for the 'golden circle' and south-west- tour.
