We spent 3 nights at the guest house with another couple the last weekend in March. We were absolutely delighted with the setting, especially at dawn which is when we arrived. Surprised by the generous sized living area and bedrooms. Clean, simple, cozy, easy to get to, great place to watch the weather turn. Gudrun was very accessible and generous...

Perfect location: close to Reykjavik, Keflavik airport and Thingvellir. But Guðrún really made us feel at home, gave us tips on what to do. But maybe the best thing were the freshly baked cakes and bread. And if the weather is not good, being inside not too bad: the windows are nice and big and with a gorgeous view. Hosts...

We enjoyed our three nights at Minna Mosfell Guesthouse with Gudrun and her husband. It's a really cozy place, breakfast with freshly baked bread or cake:) Gudrun helped us to get the best out of our time in iceland although weather and Driving conditions were difficult. Thanks a lot, we'll come back as soon as possible.

My Husband and I stayed at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse for 6 nights from the end of February 2017. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome.

Remember, they only take cash!!!! The twin room was clean and comfortable. The shared bath was clean - lots of towels and no issue 'sharing' with the other two rooms.

We stayed for a couple nights and can confirm what all the other reviewers are saying - this is excellent. Gundrun takes very good care of each and every guest, and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. She's a fountain of information and an incredible baker/chef too (fresh loaf of bread is a real treat)!...
