2 night stay and a very warm welcome from everyone. We enjoyed the most spectacular northern lights display, better after we went into the house and turned off the lights. Accommodation is what you pay for, we were in the cabins which are a good size but the bathrooms are disproportionately small and a bit of a squeeze. Good food...

Very private little place run by a small family. Very friendly and self helped service. We saw the most amazing northern lights by chance. I don't think this is the place for them but we happen to see it here and it makes all the difference in our experience with this special place!

If you are looking for a true version of Iceland this is the place to stay. Hjorleifur and Anna made us feel like a part of the family. Our group of about 14 people had this cozy guesthouse all to ourselves. Our room was newly added and very clean and comfortable. My husband and I look forward to a summer...

The hosts, Hjorleifer and Anna, made our group's stay at this historical fishing lodge absolutely wonderful. The private room with bath was very comfortable with a cozy feather bed. I cannot say enough about the food. Hjorleifer is an expert chef and our meals were gourmet quality. Matching the food was the warm hospitality our hosts extended to us.

I recently stayed at a small, cozy family-owned and operated lodge of historical importance just outside of Borgarnes. Ensku Husin, English House, located on a popular fishing river offered me the peace and quiet I needed to refresh from a hectic and stressful year. WiFi was available and my friends and I were able to keep in touch with the...

My husband and I visited western Iceland January 2nd– January 5th and stayed at Ensku Husin. This was our second visit to Iceland and also to this lovely farmhouse. It is situated by the Langa River and was once a popular accommodation for fly fishermen. Our room was located in the newest addition to the farmhouse. It was quite comfortable,...

My husband & I traveled to Iceland with Krummi Tours on a 5 day trip we stayed at Ensku Husin. From the moment we walked into the Guesthouse we felt so welcome. Our room was so cute, very comfortable. The view around the guesthouse was breath taking to see the mountains with snow. The owners Hjorleifur and Anna are wonderful,...

The owners of this lovely place have done a wonderful job welcoming guests. Be warned that this is not a place to go if you want a pool, television, and the amenities of a 5 star resort. This is a place to go to learn of the people of Iceland. These wonderful owners live off the land. Their farm to...

I have stayed in a lot of hotels, for work and for pleasure, and none can compare with Ensku Husin. I stayed for 5 days while touring the local area. Hjörleifar and Anna made me feel like part of the family. Hjörleifar is also an amazing chef. You won't get better food anywhere in the world. If you want to...

We stayed here one night in December while on a tour of Iceland.
