I have stayed two nights at the Skjaldarvik Guesthouse in August. I really enjoyed the stay - the rooms are very comfortable and "homelike feeling". You do notice the owners make great efforts to make guests comfortable and feel at home. I also enjoyed a nice dinner in the restaurant - the food is of excellent quality, the service very... More

Ugh... too many fat, middle aged, European men vacationing in Iceland all together; either German, Russian or Ukrainian. Loud, obnoxious and fat is what has been attracted to this hotel. They are at this moment wrestling in the hot tub. Disgusting. Had hoped for a romantic get away with my boyfriend.

Apologies for not writing this review sooner! We stayed at the start of April. The location is ok, on the outskirts of town. A huge amount of effort has clearly been made to make this place welcoming, with lovely and quirky decorative touches. The restaurant was very nice, and the food when we visited, although limited, was excellent. Breakfast was... More

I stayed there for 3 nights and had dinner twice. The food is amazing, the lobster, lamb and pasta are all nicely cooked. I went to some top restaurant in Reyjavik as well and Skjaldarvik is still my top choice. Room is clean , staff is nice. Bathroom is clean as well. But the layout of the guesthouse is a... More

Just loved the restaurant, the only place we visited. We had a superb appetizer of brie baked with honey and nuts served with crackers. Enjoyed the pasta too, ravioli stuffed with spinach. The service was impeccable, the staff is friendly and ambiance lovely. I would visit Skjaldarvik again.There was nothing I didn't like.

We can only talk about the restaurant as we didn't stay here. One day we followed the sign from route #1 to the restaurant. We were very pleased by the atmosphere and the hospitality shown by the staff. The menu doesn't have a long list of items to offer. But everything we tried on several occasions was really good and...

Lovely place just outside Akuyeri - kids loved the dressing gowns and telescope in the conservatory - cool honour system for drinks there. We eat in the excellent restaurant - had some great Icelandic lamb. Breakfast excellent also - nice selection of home made items - bread, jam etc. Staff very helpful. Best place we stayed in in Iceland -... More

Lovely place, a bit out of town so you need a car (or hitch-hike, which I did !). The staff is really nice, from various origins as Skjardalvik Guesthouse is member of a program of formation for young people. But still the Icelandic welcome is there, as well as the spirit. If you stroll a bit around the place, you... More

The food is superb. The staff aswell and the riding is in a beautiful landscape. This is a really nice place to visit. Would really recommend the ride and bite. This is on our top 3 restaurants on our drive around Iceland in 2015.
