“Very Average”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the cabin. While the price was affordable, the infrastructure of the cabin itself was very simple.

It was just clean enough, beds felt dilapidated, and the breakfast was simple at best.

Honestly nothing wrong, but very average.

We loved the food here and the friendliness of the hosts. The room was simple but clean, nice view, enjoyed the glass art all around and the 2 folk songs and info from the son of the owner. All three courses for dinner were exquisite and tasty - hearty healthy home cooked Icelandic food - highly recommended.

A lovely warm welcome in a guesthouse whose rooms are hotel standard. ? By being a guesthouse they can give you lovely homecooked food, overall the best meal we had on our 6 day tour. Our host entertained us with a short selection of Folk songs and regaled us with some stories of local customs and events For the first time we found ouselves amid real trees, and after overnight snow, the whole scene outside was magical after a very welcoming. This is an excellent location for those travlling by air or on the ferry from Denmark..

This Guesthouse was horrible, our room was located right above the kitchen, it was very noisy in the late evening and the early morning. The rooms were tiny and there was only on chair in our room for two persons and one bathroom/shower/toilet facility for 4 rooms with two couples. Never ever again!

A brand-new upgraded facility (just opened in June), more like a small hotel with a nice view over the valley and totally easy to find by GPS. Small reception area, good sized dining area which would be enhanced if a corner were set up as a lounge.
Bed room with hardwood flooring, desk & chair, easy chair, chest with wardrobe and hangers – best equipped place thus far in Iceland.Spacious tiled bathroom with no-rim shower, ok shelf space and very good hardware, good wifi available but charge isk500, this is the only place that charged for wifi thus far. Regular breakfast spread, including herring with dark bread.
Buffet-style dinner is available at their restaurant in the nicely decked-out dining room, I enjoyed a creamy vegetable soup with home-made bread, organic green salad tossed with fresh vegetables, salad with ham, very tasty pan-fried salmon with new potatoes and fried raisins.
2 course isk4500 and a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc for isk4000 per bottle, which seems to be about mid-range in Iceland. Overall a quite pleasant experience.

A good hotel if you are on transit. We booked a hotelroom for one night. The beds were good and the room was very clean and atmospheric. Look to get out of bed if you sleep on the window side. there is a sloping ceiling which you can bang your head.
If you want watch television, you have bad luck. There is no one. But that was no problem for us. If we are on holiday, we don't want watch televion.
We had a view over some colored trees with lot of birds singing for us. The bathroom was good but breakfast was not more than standard.
the staff was nice, where you feel at home. They where happy to help you

I have stayed in this guesthouse for the 3rd time and I just love it.
This time I have stayed in a cozy cottage for four nights. It is not very big but big enough, because I was only there to relax and sleep.
I decided to stay longer so I got a room in the main building with a double bed but no facilities in the room. But no problem because the shared bathroom is just outside. It was clean and it was free whenever I wanted to use it.
And the rooms they just built this spring are fantastic with very comfortable beds and lovely facilities in the room.
The breakfast table has a great variety and the dinner is just delicious. Even a vegetarian gets something very tasty, thanks to the kitchen.
The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful and I can't wait to come back.
