We had a great stay at this guesthouse a few miles out of Reikjavik. The guesthouse is an independent house on a farm with 6 or so rooms, bathrooms on both floors and a fully equiped kitchen with basic food to help yourself from.
The facilities were in perfect and clean state, our room was quite spacious and the bed really comfortable.
The breakfast was .... royal...! The entire table was covered with various food, homemade smoked salmon, fruit, homemade jam, Icelandic specialties, different types of tea and delicious homemade crepes. I don't think I ever ate such delicious crepes ;-)
The owner and her family are really friendly and happy to have a chat and tell you all about Icelandic culture, the things to see and do, etc...
I first booked one night online and we ended coming back at the end of our trip.
Service is excellent and really good value for money especially close to the capital, also a perfect spot to observe the northern lights.
I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Iceland.
