My husband and I stayed here for a couple nights in October. It has about 10-11 guestrooms, which are decorated tastefully. We couldn't get over how quiet it was while we stayed here. We believe that every guest room was occupied, but the rooms must be sound proof because we couldn't hear a peep. Our favorite thing about the guesthouse...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during a trip around Iceland. We had a pretty good stay here. The positives: the gusethouse is a few km out of Selfoss and has a nice balance between being very peaceful and quiet and feeling like it's in he 'middle of nowhere' and being located 10 minutes from a town...

We stayed only for one night and I am really happy about it. The couple who owns the guesthouse is friendly and the breakfast was good but the rooms have no heating that you can control and are therefore pretty cold. Furthermore the ventilation system In the bathroom is so loud and can not be turned off so that sleeping...

Stayed here on our Honeymoon for 3 nights and so glad we did. A quiet and relaxing place that you can walk around and visit the wandering farm animals (SO MANY ADORABLE SHEEP!). Close to Selfoss if you need food or gas- but beware places close very early in the country. Best coffee we had on our trip- I should...

This small guesthouse is located in the outskirts of Selfoss directly off the main road, down a dirt track as typical with Icelandic roads. We stayed one night. We arrived late after a delayed flight, nonetheless the key for the room was waiting at reception with our name on and contained all the important information we needed. The room was...

Nice guesthouse with good facilities. The rooms where clean and tidy. The family who owns the place provides a very nice complete breakfast. (Bread, waffles, skyr and much more). They supply new towels and make the bed for you every day. Even with bad weather (storm/rain) it was very comfortable and warm and the sauna was very nice. The only...

A Nice guesthouse on the countryside. Its quite and clean with private bathrooms. The breakfast is awesome, with plenty of choice and the sauna and hottub are great- especially if the weather isnt really stormy/raining. The only downside are the Very present very loud americans that are present everywhere around the golden circle and Reykjavik

The building itself is another one of those pre-fab buildings. The room was fairly Spartan. The bathroom worked, but nothing great. But there were some nice touches to the place. They had a sauna and a hot tub. And they had a lot of books about Iceland and some other decorations in the hallway that gave the place a more...

We really enjoyed the stay here. We stayed for 2 nights while visiting the golden circle attractions and it was perfect. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast and the remote locations means you have a great chance to spot the northern lights from your window, even though we were unlucky.
