Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Inn needs a renovation, it looks like they tried to do a DIY in the room but failed. We unfortunately were booked here through our tour operator but will inform him that this is not the place to put people until they do proper updates. The mattress was horrible. The Inn is about 10 minutes from the center. This city is so charming with all the places available to choose from if you have a choice I would choose another

We stayed for one night and had dinner at the restaurant. The accommodations were okay, but we would definitely recommend finding another place for dinner. The website made the restaurant sounds so terrific that we were really looking forward to it (locally sourced foods, award winning lamb dishes) especially since we had enjoyed so many terrific meals in Iceland already. Unfortunately, the award winning lamb dish looked like a cafeteria meal and the peas tasted like they came out of a can. The arctic char was better and was a decent portion. Despite the mediocre food, the prices were similar to those at many of the other finer restaurants we ate at which truly had chef quality meals with interesting arrangements and taste combinations. The waitstaff seemed very disinterested as well. We ordered a bottle of "Italian Red Wine" and received two glasses of wine. When I mentioned it, they brought out a half bottle of a Chilean Cabernet and put it on the table. Not that we are fussy, but the service was just pretty bad for a restaurant of this price range. I don't think that I had another meal in Iceland that I didn't enjoy fully in our entire 10 day stay, but this restaurant is one to avoid unless you don't have another option.

Highly recommend this place. It is located about 10 mins drive outside the town and is lovely and quiet. We'll placed for travel to Myvatn as not far from the tunnel. My room had lovely views and was well appointed including a small dining table. There was a kitchenette shared with one other room. Breakfast was good and the food in the restaurant was tasty. A great base for exploring the local area.

Stayed on night. Cozy place just outside of town. Farm stay. They leave keys at desk. Nice room. Clean and quiet. Did not eat dinner but breakfast was the standard and fine. They have a hot tub which was nice. Big hallway with a sitting area. No TV but good Wi-Fi. Staff that was working in kitchen was helpful since there was no one at front desk. Nice stay.

Our room is infested with flies before we even enter our room. The room is old and the shower drainage is bad. We got water flow out of the shower. Please be aware that the towels are really rough. By the way, there will be a beautiful dog that will greets you which is a nice thing. The room is spacious and the young ladies that work there are very nice. Really disappointed with the room but still in love with Iceland and its beauties.

The place is quaint and well kept. Basic room, clean and comfortable. The highlight of the stay was the 3 course dinner, starring Lamb. If you stay here, and you do not eat here, you are missing out on one of the best meals in Iceland.

10 minutes away from Akureyri you find this inn in the country side. The rooms are dated but large and clean enough. There is also a hot tub and you can have nice views of The Valley. Rooms have no TV or phone. Otherwise pretty average hotel. Reception is not always occupied, when we had a problem with the flush toilet we had to call them.

On our circuit of Iceland’s ring road, we stayed here for one night, as it was convenient for Akureyrie and an easy drive to Husavik. There’s no TV or coffee making facilities in the room but it’s great value for money and in a lovely rural spot with great views, only a ten minute drive into town. The following morning we had to be in Husavik by 9:15, so wanted to leave by 8:00. We were told that breakfast isn’t served until 8:00 but, because of our schedule, they were so helpful in preparing our breakfast a bit earlier so we could get away on time. It was no trouble for them. We hoped to dine at Fimbul (the restaurant on the same site), but were unable to as they had a large group booking. I’d definitely recommend this lovely place, if you’re exploring the country.

We stayed one night here-room was clean with plenty of space. Unfortunately we had to leave before breakfast was we had an excursion in Husavik which was disappointing. My only frustration was that our room was right beside the outside smoking area. Thankfully we were not bothered by the smoke smell, but the people chatting outside did disturb us as we got to bed. It would be great if the owners could relocate the smoking area away from rooms. It is a pretty quick trip in to Akureyri if you need to go out for dinner while staying there. Area is quiet and very pretty.

We (family of three) stayed two nights, ate two trully excellent dinners, the best in many a trip. Breakast was also good. Exceptional warm hospitality, cozy place, hot tub, beautiful setting. Aurora and Matt (who I think took the place over just before Covid) are doing a good thing here.
