“An absolutely fantastic place to stay!”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

The owner was an extremely friendly and helpful gentleman, and could not have helped us more. After we arrived, he showed us our room, then took the time to sit down with us and chat about our plans, and gave us recommendations on the best routes to drive and where to eat dinner etc.
The room itself was great - it was modern, clean, and comfortable. As previously mentioned, there was no in-room TV, but who cares?! If you are bored of your travel companions, there's plenty to read in the communal seating area, there's a hot tub outside, and free wifi in the rooms.
Breakfast had a great variety and was very tasty, and was mostly 'continental,' with cereals, meats and cheeses, eggs, bread and jam etc. There were also waffles that you can make yourself with the ready made mixture.
Very highly recommended if you need accommodation in the area.

Such a great place to stay; warm, friendly, welcoming, informative, comfy, a hot tub and a yummy breakfast! Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Had a morning visit to see the sheep too. Best place we've stayed so far - would love to come back in the summer.

We were quite surprised to stumble onto this accommodation about 45 minutes outside Reykjavik. To reach it, you turn off a main road in a remote area, and proceed down a gravel road between grazing fields, and you could be forgiven for thinking you are headed nowhere. Lambastadir is inexpensive. The rooms are simple but extremely clean and comfortable. There is a quiet austerity to the place, with all the walls painted white. Most rooms have windows that allow gazing across the farmland on which the place is situated. Breakfast is included in the room price, and is quite extensive and filling. We felt very lucky to find so nice a place just by bumbling around....this area of Iceland is very lonely.

My husband and I stayed one night here in October 2013 on our drive along the south coast. We were delighted to be able to stay on a farm property, and it is great fun to walk around the property looking at the farm animals. The daughter of the owners was very helpful in getting us checked in and suggesting local places to eat. She suggested Kaffi Krus in Selfoss which did not disappoint (The lobster pizza was delicious)! It was a clear night and we were able to sit in the hot tub and look up at all the beautiful stars (we were hoping for Northern Lights but they did not come that night). Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The breakfast was similar to other hotels with meats, cheeses, breads, yogurt...but here they go a step above with serving homemade jams and waffle mixes. I am not sure exactly what we paid as it was part of a package booked through Tour.Is but we would definitely recommend this guesthouse.

Lambastadir is a great guesthouse located very centrally for day trips to the golden circle/gullfoss/thingvellir. The rooms are clean and spacious, the owners are very friendly and there is a hot tub which is available for use at any time during the day or night (good if youre waiting up to watch the northern lights). The guesthouse is very reasonably priced as well.

Breakfast is included, which is very nice and includes home made waffles and home made raspberry jam. Look no further if you are looking to stay in the area. One downside is that the showers don't get very hot, and the beds are quite small.

The establishment in new and in excellent condition.
