My wife and I loved our stay in this wonderful guesthouse in Stykkisholmur. Our host, Ella, was lovely and welcoming, and after our long drive from Akureyri, we were very appreciative of her great hospitality. We stayed in a spotless and very comfortable room with a private bath and private entrance (a nice feature). We also enjoyed the sweeping view of the town and its signature, modern church from the common room; the state-of-the-art coffee maker (with two kinds of espresso, one richer than the other -- try to beat that); and not least, the sumptuous breakfast the next morning. Hofdagata was everything one could wish for in a b&b; we recommend it highly!

We stayed at Hofdagata last week. Ella was most kind and ensured that we reached Hofdagata even though it was well past midnight. Once she had provided us directions to the Inn she came racing (!) in her car to ensure that we were comfortably situated in our room. Ella is very cheerful and helpful. The breakfast the next morning was very good with ample options for my husband and myself as we are vegetarians. Hofdagata is a very short drive to the Harbor where we took the ferry to Flatey Island (highly recommend). We wish we could have stayed at Hofdagata a bit longer! Thank you Ella

We stayed in the self-catering bungalow next to the guesthouse and had breakfast in the guesthouse. We could not have picked a better spot and Ella is very welcoming. Self-catering is worth it as the limited number of restaurants in the town are very expensive

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful B&B for only one night during our stay in Iceland. We were traveling with another couple and we all remarked how we wished we could have stayed longer. We shared the house with another couple and a single traveler so 7 guests total and it never felt crowded.

Our room was a nice size with an available dresser. The bed was really comfortable. We had a wonderful view. The shared bathroom was right outside our door and, while small, was certainly clean and adequate. The living room was very cozy with a beautiful view as well.

We enjoyed the hot tub outside that evening. The wi-fi was a nice perk as well.

Breakfast was fantastic! There was so much food! A nice mix of traditional Icelandic foods and some American stuff (cornflakes, toast). I encourage everyone to skip the cornflakes, the rest is so good.

Before we left, the owner gave me a map and marked some of her favorite places on it so we could visit on our tour.

There is also a wonderful bakery and community swimming pool within walking distance that are both wonderful.

Room Tip: Don't be worried about sharing a bathroom, the rooms are bigger than the one with the attached bath!

We were very pleased with this B&B. Staying there, you have to make some trade-offs. The larger rooms come with shared bath. We opted for the room with the ensuite bath, and the room itself is small - just large enough for a bed that is pushed against the wall. This means if the person who sleeps on the inside needs to get up, they have to climb over the other person. And if you have a lot of luggage, it's a challenge to stash everything. One of the guests in a room that did not have an ensuite bath mentioned that the sink in their bath was extremely small. The other bath that was shared by several parties had a normal-sized sink and shower (can't remember if possibly also a tub).

However, the place is really nice, with beautiful views of mountains and the modern church, the rooms are clean and nicely furnished, the common areas very comfortable (large living/dining room, fabulous terrace and great kitchen.) Guests can use the kitchen to make meals and put some items in the fridge, which is great to help stay within a reasonable food budget. We did not sign up for breakfast (trying to control our weight), but heard from other guests that it was excellent. And Ella was so generous to let us try her wonderful porridge/Muesli. She is very helpful in figuring out plans for activities.

You're right in the middle of town and can walk to restaurants, sights and shopping. A convenient and nice place, very friendly and good value for the money. We also enjoyed meeting other guests, which is easy with people congregating in the comfortable common areas. And we loved the Nespresso machine in the living/dining room and our very comfortable mattresses!
