We stayed here our first 3 nights in Iceland and it couldn't have been a better choice for us. The owner, Jona Margret, was very friendly and welcoming and her breakfasts turned out to be the very best we had in all of Iceland. When she asked what we wanted to drink in the mornings, I asked about hot chocolate and every morning there was a thermal carafe ready for me with the yummiest hot chocolate I'd ever tasted. The guesthouse is approximately 15 minutes from Reykjavik, but we enjoyed being out in the country and having the opportunity to feed some of Jona's Icelandic horses. If we go back to Iceland some day (hopefully!), we'd certainly want to return to this guesthouse.
