We stayed here on during a photographic trip to Iceland, and from a distance you might think this was just a cluster of farm buildings you'd be wrong (although they are converted from farm buildings). This guesthouse is pleasant (not quaint like some grannies place), clean, comfy, warm and quiet. It has several rooms - a bit like a motel, each of which is slightly different, some with decking outside, some with single beds and bunk beds, some in pairs some in rows, They have an excellent cook (Helga who also co-owns the guesthouse) and meals are served in a large dinning area (off of which is a TV lounge).The food was delicious and they produced plenty of it, Lamb,Fish, vegetables, preceded by starters and complimented with yummy desserts. Breakfasts were great, loads of it, continental style plus eggs, sausages, tasty breads with preserves and really good pancakes with syrup. The location is remote, you can hear the road, but not like in a built up zone, more like a random vehicle passing through a wilderness.
The only thing you might have to get used to to is the sound of the occupants of the next room, acoustic lagging isn't as important as thermal. Still, a minor point as most only use rooms at the end of the day. And if you have a couple of beers or a glass of wine you'll sleep alright....yes they sell both and they are very reasonable.
