We stayed here as a large party for 4 nights in total. Three at the start of our tour and one at the end. We had therefore 2 different rooms. Those at the back are quieter but have no view. Those at the front have a view of the ocean but slightly more noise and light.
The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is delicious with a great choice of breads, jams, ham, cheese, herring, cereal etc. Everything you need to set you up for a good day's tour around the area.
It is a stones throw from the ocean front and a flat easy walk into the main Reykavik area where you could also catch a bus further afield.
The family were very helpful and Wifi was available free of charge in the breakfast room. There was also a PC for use in the sitting room.
I would certainly head for the guest house again on my return to the city.
