This guest house was a wonderful place to stay in Akureyri. It's the staff that makes it so special. Most of them are young trainees from many European countries and the USA. They are cheerful, always willing to help and willing to have a chat about where they are from and where they have visited in Iceland. The house in... More

Yes, this guesthouse has it all! We stayed 3 nights here, choosing to stay a bit outside of Akureyri to sample the countryside more. We were very pleased with our choice, as it was only 4 miles into town. Lonely Planet calls this lodging a "farm stay," and while there is indeed a barn with horses on the grounds, the... More

My husband and I recently got married in Vik, Iceland. For our honeymoon we have decided to road trip around Iceland and Akureyri was our 3rd stop. We booked the ride and bite tour months in advance as we heard that some tours overbook quickly during the summer season. The tour description said something about a horse back riding tour... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here while exploring the Akureryi and Myvatn areas. Staff/hosts: the hostess was very lovely and had a lot of insight about places to visit all over Iceland. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. One lady, I believe her name was Katerine showed us all around the guesthouse while we checked in, served... More

I stayed one night here, and given the price and the fact that the bathrooms are shared meant that I didn't expect much. I was pleasantly surprised. My room was warm and thoughtfully decorated. The bathrooms were well stocked with fluffy towels. The breakfast (included in the price) was lovely, and there was free tea and coffee in the foyer.... More

This place was like a backpackers hostel crossed with a B&B. Good value for money! It had a really relaxed atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast provided was good. Bathrooms are shared but there were plenty available so you did not have to wait to use one. All of them lock so no panic on other people... More

Wonderful warm and cute guest house with character, lovely food, attentive and very friendly staff, beautifully equipped and designed place with hot tub, living room, bar, restaurant and riding facilities. Great large bathrooms. We took a riding tour which we very much enjoyed. Would come back again any time. Felt so relaxing and like home!
