“Best B&B ever! Adorable owner (and dog too :) )!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

We stayed there for three nights in August 2013 and we really enjoyed Nonni's hospitality.

Every morning he used to welcome us with a home-made breakfast: home-made jam (he even gave us the recipe), home-made bread and even home-made waffles! He cooked for us every morning and he even sat at the table just to talk to us and give us some advice for our trip.
We were really positively surprised by his kindness and attention.

The room and bathroom were very clean with lots of light. During our 3-nights stay, we never had any noise problems. You must just know that in Iceland it's really rare to have a queen or king bed. Also be prepare to share the bathroom (shared bathrooms are very common in Iceland's B&B). But the house has one bathroom at each level which is very convenient! We never had to wait to have access to the bathroom.

We highly recommend Nonni's guesthouse. It's the best B&B we ever tried. Thank you Nonni and we hope to see you soon :)

Nonni Guesthouse is really a comfortable place to spend a quiet night. Rooms are clean and bathrooms as well. It is possible to use Nonni's kitchen to prepare meals. We had also a great breakfast! Every evening Nonni prepares home-made bread and tasty jam to offer its guests the next morning. He his very nice and welcoming. Very good value for money.
We definetly recommend it to all travellers.

We stayed for only one night in Nonni's B&B. Nonni's hospitality is great. He offered tea when we arrived and we had a talk about interesting subjects in Iceland. He immediately made a phonecall for us to get information about a hiking trail we had planned for the next day. Also he looked for the wheather conditions on the computer. The room was clean and comfortabel. Breakfast was delicious with home made bread. Finally Nonni offered to leave our luggage safely in his house while we were on a trail for 3 days with only our backpack, very kindly.

We have a bad experience with Nonni guesthouse at our recent trip in Iceland. ! month before we´ve booked one night at Nonni´s house, but the day we went tho te guesthouse It says has been an error and our room was overbooked, so he sent us to a hotel in same town as same price (but disappointed for us, narrow rooms and uncorfomtable).
The book system with Nonni guesthouse is contact him with email or phone. He don`t ask to payment in advance, so he prefers cash payment, but seems a bit risky and is possible a bad surprise as it happens to us

Overbooking is one of the worst things who happen. It happend because of my mistake. When I realised I had made the mistake I immediately sent José e-mail. He seems not to have seen it. Anyway I got a double room with shared bathroom (like at Guesthouse Nonni) at Fosshotel Mosfell a few hundred meters from my guesthouse. The price was the same.

I am so very sorry for José´s trouble. If he has the opportunity to visit my area in the future I ask him to contact me and accept a free double room with breakfast for 1 night.

We stayed in 2 rooms at Guesthouse Nonni for our family of 4 at a very reasonable price (by Icelandic standards). Nonni is a very welcoming host. Rooms are very clean and the beds and linens are wonderful. Nonni helped us set up Icelandic horseback riding at nearby Kalfholt horse farm, which was really fun. We enjoyed the splendid views of Mount Hekla from the park hillside beside the Guesthouse and it is an easy walk to the best restaurant in Hella. You will enjoy the company of Nonni and his guests at breakfast which features very good Icelandic bread, jams and smoked salmon. I hope we can return to visit Nonni again someday.
