Stayed with a group of friends traveling through Iceland. We had one room with a private bathroom and one without. The rooms were clean and cozy. The dinner we had the first night was tasty and the complimentary breakfast exceeded expectations. Would recommend bringing sandals or slippers to wear around seeing that they ask you to remove your boots at...

Room is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is delicious for travelers. But if there are too many people, there is not enough hot water to take a shower 房間很乾淨且舒適,可以試著要求給大間房,不然兩個男生住閣樓會很窄。 早餐8點到9點半,很豐富也很好吃。 如果有太多房客的話最好早點洗澡,不然熱水用光就要等隔天早上了。 櫃台人員下班後就沒人補充咖啡跟熱開水了,要注意

My friend and I drove southeast during our trip and selected this guesthouse as our furthest point before doubling back. It was perfect! Picturesque views, friendly staff, cozy, so clean and views of northern lights right out of our bedroom window! I could have def stayed a second night. It is about 25 mins from Hofn which is a Lil...

The staff was really friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean. The breakfast was good but the dinner was amazing! It was the best lamb I've ever tasted and the price was not bad at all. Lovely little guesthouse.

Remote and out of the way. On working sheep farm. We stayed for one night and had two rooms on ground floor. Walls were thin - could hear people using bathroom next door. Needs freshening up - a bit jaded. Food good at dinner and tea/coffee available free. Breakfast varied and fairly plentiful. Views of glacier are fantastic. Friendly staff.

We only stayed one night but would've loved to have stayed longer! Loved the location (a bit remote but lovely). So clean and fresh! They were in the middle of bringing their sheep in for the winter so it was a very busy time for them, but certainly something unique to experience. Breakfast was excellent and staff was very friendly!...

We stayed 3 nights to use as a base for touring the locale (Jokulssarlon, Stokksnes, etc), and were impressed with the quality of this budget accommodation. A working farm, the views from the cabin rooms are stunning, and the rooms themselves are quite spacious and very comfortable and quiet. We also were impressed with the dinner menu and the food,...

this was the closet place we found near our glacier trekking place that was within our budget. it's a working farmhouse which makes it pretty off the main route, but the view and the night sky is gorgeous. we had booked two rooms in the main building with shared bathrooms, and it was pretty challenging having to wait for your...

The guesthouse is situated in a great spot with wonderful views all around. It was very convenient for me to get to my glacier hike the next morning. I drove all day from the airport so I was tired and appreciative that they served dinner. The free breakfast was also very nice! I stayed in the main building on the...

This was the closest available B&B we found near Jokulsarlon but it was a good 15-20 mins drive form there. The guesthouse is a working farmhouse and it was quite an amazing experience to stay there. You have to take a local road off of route 1 to get to the guesthouse but it's pretty easy to find. We had...
