From the very first moment you step into this place, you feel the cosy ambient, cleanleness and cared decoration. Owners are helpfull, chatty, and happy to help always with a smile in their face. We decided to have dinner and as we expected, everything was delicious and not overpriced (as almost everywhere in Iceland). The fish and the soups are... More

Amazing reception to the guesthouse as we were welcomed by a lovely lady who was only too happy to personally show us to our apartment and made sure we had everything we needed. The apartment was only a short walk away from the main guesthouse with nice views of the water. The apartment its self was warm and clean. The... More

We stayed one night with Jolanda on our way back home from Húsavík to Reykjavík. The guesthouse was warm and cosy. We were served an excellent evening meal of salmon and vegetables, the pork schnitzel is recommended. Gull Icelandic beer on draft.......perfect. Blönduós is a small town on the edge of the Arctic Ocean. An atmospheric place for an overnight... More

We were concerned when we first checked in as our room was right by the kitchen and stairs and seemed quite noisy but we didn't notice overnight. Even with a couple of choices on shared bathrooms we did have to wait from time to time to get in. Particularly at night. Breakfast was not included but available for a small... More

This lovely guesthouse was right on the ocean. The owner is Polish and so there were many east European touches. Lots of hard wood. The room was large and lovely, the beds comfortable. Plenty of water in the shower. The owner takes great pride in the place and it is spotless. We also had dinner and breakfast there and they... More

I stayed for one night in this guesthouse. The rooms were clean and tidy. Had dinner and breakfast here, both very good. The breakfast (which costs extra) was definitely worth the money with a large array of different foods. I would definitely recommend this place, especially with regards to the price! The owner and receptionist were extremely friendly and helpful.

Friendly staff, good food and great location. Small, but clean rooms with good beds. Bathroom and shower in the aile/basement. A windy city, but inside it was warm and cosy. The selection of wines could have been better, but we survived. Tv in the dinner/bar in Polish should be turned off.

Finally, I have found a suitable guest hose on road 1 from Reykjavik to Akureyri. On the edge of the Arctic ocean in the old and ghostly centre on the west side of village Blonduos. The old house creaks through two floors, rooms are simple, small and reasonable in price. I slept soundly through the commotion. Free WiFi in rooms.... More

This is an average guesthouse in a good location. Bath and shower facilities are shared but adequate in number. The place is a bit old and creaky and the sounds carry around the entire house, but we got a good night's sleep here. The sea was right outside our window and the sound of waves always makes me sleep better!... More
