“Great Base for Southwest Iceland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2010

We spent six nights here and thought it was a good place for the budget conscious traveller. The cabins are basic, but everything is there, even a laundromat and two hot tubs. The showers are a bit small, but we liked to go to the pool in Hvergardi. At any pool in Iceland they make you shower, so bring your shampoo and you don't need the shower at Gesthus. The resort (I use this term loosely) also accomodates campers, both tent and RV. It is very quiet and conveniently located for visiting the big tourist sights - Thingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir & Kerio. Don't miss the GeoThermal power plant west of Hvergardi. Gesthus is about 45 minute drive from Reykjavik.. We did not have the breakfast which costs 1100 per person, but it is a buffet - lots of choice of cereal, bagels, toast, cut veggies, cheese and luncheon meat. If you are truly budget conscious, try the Bonus Supermarket a few blocks away on the main road.
