Black Beach Guesthouse is a *fantastic* newer accommodation offering in Iceland located appoximately 50 minutes outside of Reykjavík in the lovely town of Þorlákshöfn. Our room was extremely spacious, well appointed, and tastefully decorated. *So* much quaint charm for the price point! Everything was incredibly clean and "fresh" given this is a newer property. A coffee maker and TV were among the amenities provided in each room, making for a comfortable stay. We arrived with multiple suitcases and carry on luggage in tow, which wasn't an issue given the spaciousness of our room. This was so appreciated given we had just come from an incredibly small hotel room in the city. Here we could really "spread out" and breathe, not have everything and everyone on top of one another! The bathroom was also incredibly spacious and well lit, with plenty of counter space for makeup and other toiletries. The walk-in shower was roomy and gloriously hot (thanks for all that delicious geothermal-heated water, Iceland!). There was also a complimentary hair dryer for our use, which is always an appreciated amenity. The guesthouse is located in a bit of an industrial park, close to Black Beach Tour headquarters (go and take the ATV tour, which is *fantastic*, or one of their other superb offerings!), and within walking distance to the town center, swimming pool, and restaurants. This is an area where you can slow down a little, enjoy the quiet charm of Iceland, and experience "small town" Icelandic life. I highly recommend Black Beach Guesthouse for a stay in the Þorlákshöfn area . In a country that is a bit notorious for being expensive and hard on a traveler's pocketbook, this is a *tremendous* value! You won't be giving anything up in exchange for Black Beach Guesthouse's nominal prices. In fact, this might be the best return on your dollar that you'll get in *all* your travels around Iceland. The cleanliness, comfort, and charm can't be beat! :)

I really enjoyed staying in the cottage, which is part of the guesthouse. The cottage we stayed in was so nice, comfortable and every thing was clean. The cottage had view over the golf course and black beach. Very good customer service!

The apartment we stayed in was very comfortable. It offered enough space and it was very new and clean. The area the apartment was located in however wasn't that great. It felt more like an industrial terrain with barely any people walking around. Keep that in mind when you book this apartment, because you have to drive a little bit to find nice restaurants etc. But for just the stay it was very good!

A lovely accommodation for its price. You MUST have your own vehicle as it is quite out of the way from Reykjavik. The Blue Lagoon is 45 min, Aiport is 1 hour and Krisuvik geothermal area is 30 min. The nearest big town Selfoss is 20 min away. Despite the name don't come in expecting to stroll along a black sandy beach. The nearest beach is 10 min walk and is covered by intimidating black rocks, though it is favoured by surfers!! The 1st impression was negative driving in to the area as this area used to be warehouses which have been converted in to restaurants and hotels. Lots of derelict lorries and ships on the road but all is forgotten once entering the premises via key codes that were emailed in advance by the owners. They promptly answered some queries that we had regarding check in formalities. Overall very happy with our experience
