This was bar far the best value guesthouse I stayed in on my trip around north-east Iceland. Friendly staff, check-in in one building, room in another, had to ask for extension plug as only one working power socket. Bathroom a bit like a hostel (no shampoo or shower gel, like everywhere!), but room okay. Buffet breakfast was best one on... More

PROS: Good wifi. TV room with comfy couch. Good breakfast. CONS: You cannot park in front of the door, if you a plenty of stock it is not usefull. Cooking space is tiny crooked place, crazy for the amount of people staying there and wanting to cook... You have to wait in line for your time to come.Really makes no... More

This guest house has wonderful amenities. Lovely indoor picture windowed places to sit quietly and read, nice cooking facilities. It reflects a generous spirit in the heart of a most scenic area of Iceland.

The guesthouse is located in a strategic small village next to the Myvan lake attractions. The room was nice, but our room was next to the shared kitchen and the room smell like the cooked food the guests did. We do not like the bathroom: it smell very bad and also taste bad. However, the breakfast service was complete and... More

The guesthouse is located at the southside of the Myvatn lake, with great views of the "pseudo-craters". I've been in iceland for 8 days now, and so far this was absolutely the most beautiful location i've stayed for the night! The guesthouse itself is also really nice, with gorgeous views from every single window. Besides that everything is very clean.... More

From the description in our guidebook, we were expecting a homely, welcoming farmhouse. This could not have been further from reality. Although the sign for reception points to the guesthouse, reception is actually around the back. A rude old lady informed us of this. Reception showed us our rooms and where to park, but then we were told off by... More

Efficient US college dormitory style facilities. Room is very clean and comfortable. Good kitchen facilities. Friendly staff. Located near volcanic topographical terrain. The tab water has a weak odour of sulphur (not overly overbearing), but that is not surprising due to volcanic proximity.

Thank you for your comment, I´m glad you liked your stay at our guesthouse! In the newer houses we have a filter for the water so you can´t smell the sulphur and the plan is to get this filter for the older house - hopefully next year! I hope you had a nice time traveling around Iceland! Best regards Soffía... More

We stayed at this guesthouse for one night during our round trip of Iceland. It was just behind the Skutustadir Hotel (our GPS guided us to a different place first). The place seems very new and well kept. Our room was small but comfortable - the shared bathroom was just down the hall, and there were 2 additional bathrooms. There... More

This is not a farm and barely a guesthouse. When we arrived to discover that they expected our 7 and 10 year old girls to stay in a room on their own on a floor with strangers and the "boy who lives here," as.well as to share bathrooms down a flight of stairs with all of these people, we explained...

Thank you for your comment, I´m sorry that you feel like you were mistreated, but I want to point out a few things. You / your group booked these rooms yourself, you didn´t book a family room - only double rooms. And we didn´t know there were two young children in your group until you arrived. We have a family...
