“A beautiful and lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We stayed at Galleri guesthouse in late April, when we were the only guests there. The Guesthouse is conveniently located almost on the main road in the little town of Laugarvatn, almost in the middle of the Golden Circle, thus it may serve for a nice base for touring the area. This relatively small guesthouse is very beautifully decorated, with every room with its own style. The rooms are very spacious, clean and very comfortable, and the shared bathroom is impeccably clean. The dining room is charming and has the right atmosphere for the breakfast. Rates, especially in pre-season, are moderate. Tips (A) Ask for the rooms in the back, although the rooms in the front near the main road are very quiet. (B) Don't miss Lindin, a very good restaurant, with 5 min. walk down the main road and near the local swimming pool, for a good meal and their famous chocolate mousse. (C)When in season book well in advance for its quality and proximity to the most frequently visited sites nearby.

Great Golden Circle location accessible to geysir. In a small town that has a gas station and one very nice restautant (Lindin). Simple German / Continental breakfast. Beautiful and comfortable rooms. An incredible bathroom, but it can be shared by up to 3 rooms (6 people).

We stayed in Laugarvatn exploring the golden circle for one night. The ownners were just perfect and the breakfast was great. The room was very spacious and lovely, the shared bath room was a bit difficult to share, due to many visitors who all wanted to be ready to start at the same time in the morning. But it was alright. The town of laugervatn is not very interesting so we decided to drive to geysir at sunset, which was very beautiful. Thanks for our good stay to the owners.

Early January visit with hope to see Northern Lights. Instead got to watch brightly lit steam rising high into the night sky, almost like an aurora. Galleri is a delightful place to stay. Room was well furnished with style and bed was very comfortable. Floors heated by geothermal water. Bathroom was astonishing with a very large tub and elegant stainless steel shower. Hot water pot, tea, etc. in hallway. Delicious and ample breakfast. Friendly and helpful host and hostess. Small bottles of wine available at reasonable price. Really enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the front room.

We had a wonderful 3 nights stay in Nov 2012 at Gallerei Laugavartn. After travelling for the last 4 months in Europe, we feel that this B&B is one of the best we have stayed in terms of quality, price and kindness from the owners.

The room we had was lovingly decorated with many small touches making the room feel so cosy. It was also quite spacious with a large queen bed, couch, big wooden cupboard and chest of drawers. The bed was FANTASTIC, one of the best we have had on our travels. There are 3 rooms with a shared bathroom. We didn't have any issues because it wasn't to busy. The bathroom had a large tub, rainwater showerhead and again was very nicely appointed.

The owners were warm and friendly people who obviously put a lot of care into this business. The breakfasts with homemade cake, waffles and a local bread specialty were great. We had the nicest surprise when one afternoon we were inside because of terrible weather, and the owner brought us in steaming, homemade banana cake - delicious.

WIFI was fast and worked well.

It is all these little touches that added up to making it a wonderful stay at this B&B. The location is also perfect to visit the geysir and gulfoss.

Room Tip: We had the room at the front which probably has the most windows and nicest view.

We arrived at the Galleri after doing the Golden Circle attractions and we were greeted warmly by the owner. She showed us around and made sure to give us her best room since we were on our honeymoon. The room was very charming and quaint. The bathroom is shared with other guests, but this wasn't an issue for us.

The owner suggested a local restaurant, Lindin, which is owned by a renowned chef. It's known as one of the best tables in the area and we were not disappointed.

The next morning, we were served a very copious breakfast in the Galleri shop. We were lucky to have very sunny weather, so having coffee with the sun overlooking the lake was pretty magical. Be sure to browse around the shop, which has various crafts and artwork from local artists. We've been to a lot of souvenir shops during our trip, but we saw very unique pieces there.

When we left the Galleri, the owners gave us a small sculpture as a gift for our honeymoon. We thought is was such a touching gesture!

Room Tip: We had the first room on the left, which we adored!

I stayed one night in october, 3 people total. The owner was super kind. The place is awesome, in the middle of nowhere Iceland. I loved the style of the room, very beautiful. I had a pleasant and quiet sleep in a very big and comfty bed. Bathroom was common but big and spacious. The WiFi worked perfectly from our room. The breakfast was very good and satisfying! I loved the waffles! I think that this one is one of the best deals you can find in the Golden Circle. Definetely suggest this hotel, awesome stay!
