I stayed here one night, with a friend ,on May 12, 2017. This is a nice place, run by nice people, at a reasonable cost. Iceland is very expensive, so it is refreshing to find a place like the Lambastadir Guesthouse. However, it is not fancy nor "chic". If you need 5 stars, you need to stay elsewhere because the...

The owner is friendly and helpful for information around the area. I stayed in room #4. The wifi speed was average, overall. The room itself was clean with a small desk (make sure to move the desk to see a wall power outlet). The shower area has a good amount of space. The water has hot with great pressure, but...

This was the last night on our full circle tour of Iceland and I think we saved the best for last. The room was comfortable, clean. The host was very accommodating, breakfast was one of the best we had in Iceland.

Nice owner. Good breakfast. Clean. Perfect location to explore the main features of Iceland, and to get back to Reykjavik and the airport. The horses look weird, sort of like Elvis :). I'd stay there again.

This is a comfortable, clean guesthouse about 10 minutes drive out of Selfoss. There was lots of choice for breakfast and the waffles went down very well. The hot tub outside is one of the nicest I've been in, with no nasty chemicals - so nice that I stayed in for 2 hours one evening.

We both really enjoyed staying here on our last night in Iceland. The rooms were very clean and the whole place had a lovely welcoming feel. The property is great for families and the hosts are fantastic. The sauna was a fantastic bonus.

Unfortunately my mother had an injury and our stay was cut short. The owners graciously refunded the balance of our stay as we had to stay in Reykjavik near the hospital for the remainder of our stay. We enjoyed one breakfast there and were sad to have to leave. Food is expensive and this is a great value. If you...

Our stay was very relaxing and the room was basic but very clean. Breakfast had a good selection with breads, cheeses, meats, jams, boiled eggs, waffles, fruits and yoghurts. There was coffee and tea facilities available in the dining room 24 hours which was good. The hot tub is available 24 hours and the sauna a couple hours at night...

Probably the best breakfast of our whole holiday. A very comfortable room and perfect for families as the rooms lead almost straight off the communal dining sitting room so you can sit there after the children go to sleep. Its own hot tub and sauna; farm animals to meet and only a short drive to Selfoss for dinner. We wished...

This place had the cleanliness and comfort of a hotel, but with a very homely feeling with welcoming owners. There were only a few rooms, and the place was fully booked. We didn't notice it though, it was quiet. Everything was arranged well, there was an envelope with our name on it at the desk with our key. In the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lambastadir Guesthouse is quiet and modern, farm holiday guesthouse. It is located in the center of South Iceland, by highway number one, only 45 minutes drive from Reykjavik. The guesthouse is family owned and our special pleasure is to inform our guests about where to go, what to do and to help guests to organize their holidays. We feel our guesthouse perfectly located for those wanting to visit historical places and Iceland´s unique nature, for example The Golden Falls, Geysir, Thingvellir National Park, Landmannalaugar, Seljalandsfoss water falla and Westman Islands. Nearby is the village Selfoss where you can find restaurants, swimming pool, golf course, banks and magazines and Reykajvik City is only 45 minutes drive from the guesthouse. Numerous activities in the neighborhood as horse riding, hiking, fishing, glacier walking, kayak boating, river rafting, snorkeling, bird watching and snow mobile. In the guesthouse are eleven non smoking comfortable rooms with private bathroom and shower. Wi-Fi internet access is free of charge. Sauna an outdoor hot tub filled with warm natural water, excellent for relaxation, are free. The communal dining room features tea/coffee making facilities. Sheep and horses are in fence close to the guesthouse. Gooses, chickens and ducks are free on our farm so our feeling is the guesthouse is family friendly. Breakfast buffet is served in the morning. ... more   less
