“Nice hotel and nice staff”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

No much choices at Steig. The price is high but a very good hotel. Its off the main road and with 2km unpaved road. A great place to see sunset in summer evening. Breakfast is very good but don't be so early. A full kitchen on site for you to cook. A breakout room with comfortable sofa provide a relax area.

A good clean place to stay. It's fairly close to the Skogarfoss waterfall and the Dryholaey peninsula but a bit remote from the main town of Vik. The breakfast was good.

I was going to stay here again later in my trip but suddenly the room price had doubled so I stayed instead in the hostel in Vik which was a lovely place to stay with the most helpful owner.

Great location very near Geyser and other natural attractions. Try dinner in the restaurant. There's a big glass window that overlooks the feeding area for the cows (this is a working farm) everyone was so nice. And the property has been in the family for generations.

We stayed here for one night in October 2013. The guesthouse is on a farm about 16 kilometres out of Vik. To get to the guesthouse you need to drive for about 2 km on a gravel road off the main ring road. The rooms were quite spacious and nice. Friendly staff. Got to breakfast late and there wasn't much left, except for a bit of toast. A nice stay.

Arrived here 10pm at night and the owner was still awake and extremely friendly. She didn’t mind that we came that late, she was actually worried for us. We were soaked after walking behind Seljalandsfoss and she told us we could use the shoe dryer at her place. We even told her that we were going to check out at 7am the next day and she said we would have to pay for the place now and she would give us breakfast now even though it started at 8am the next day. She gave us prepared sandwiches and fruits. Very accommodating of her and her husband. Her husband gave us fresh coffee. This place is really nice. They have wooden floors, dressers, and tables. The windows block out the loud winds very effectively. I couldn’t hear anything while sleeping at night. There are also tons of plugs in the room. Definitely have no issues in charging ALL of your devices. The bathroom is very clean. I did not see any mildew anywhere in the shower stall. Only thing you have to be aware of is that there’s no door for the shower stall. It’s just a curtain that separates the shower stall from the sink and toilet. Also, there is tons of kitchen counter space. Other than that, this place is awesome. No password for the internet and they have at least 2 routers that covers the length of the entire building. I would definitely recommend this place and stay here again!

Ousruun, the proprietor of Guesthouse Steig, runs a tight ship. The place is spotlessly clean (you have to remove your shoes when you enter). Rooms are roomier than the typical Iceland lodging. Wifi works well.

Breakfast is basic and not up to the standards of several other lodging places we stayed at over our visits to Iceland. But that is the only flaw to an otherwise great experience. The farmhouse is well off the road and so is quite peaceful. The farm is a working sheep enterprise, too.

Nice location with farm animals.

The only place we stayed that had sun-blocking shades!

Excellent Icelandic breakfast buffet. Service at breakfast was excellent even though we hit a peak breakfast period. Spacious rooms.

Would definitely stay here again!
