We stayed here for two nights, and we found it to be a very nice country hotel. The rooms are on the smallish side, but was bigger than our hotel in Rejkyavik. It was also clean and well laid out with cubby holes, and places to put luggage. They have a beautiful view that is very much worth staying for.... More

Before booking this Hotel I had read in different websites that the owner had a peculiar humor sense and that the Hotel was managed too focus on revenue side. Even with this previous information, I booked and my experience has been horrible. When we arrived, we were said to go to room 21 in the back of the building 1,5... More

We got our room by our travel agent and found the room was in a perfect size, big bathroom with basic facilities. The room was clean and maintained perfectly all rooms looked new. We had Dinner and breakfast at the hotel's restaurant and found both meals were o.k. (Dinner price was high, Breakfast was included). WiFi functioned with no problem... More

If you do not want to stay in town or the hotels in town are booked, this can be a nice alternative. We had a 3 person room which had the basics needed. For the night we stayed it was enough. For more nights, it would have been too small and sharing bathroom with other guests would not made it... More

Booked into this place by a tour company. Had no choice. Found the place to be very clean. While there was a television (unusual in these kinds of place) it was OLD and on top of a wardrobe. NO PHONE Staff accommodating but not friendly. It is a room that was clean. With horses behind the cabin.

Basic country cottage style that was comfortable and clean, with no real distinguishing features. Standard Icelandic breakfast fare although I did like the "make your own" granola bar. Decent WiFi. The price was a little high for what you received in return but we would stay here again.

This "country" hotel is about 5 km. outside Hofn on what was (and may still be) a working farm. The facilities are relatively new, mostly of pine wood and quite comfortable. The bathroom is not huge but is certainly adequate and the room was efficient. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Dinner was ho hum. Breakfast was fine, but... More

Stayed here for 2 nights because it was the cheapest hotel near Hofn ($200/night). Pros: Had a good breakfast included in the price, clean, good recommendation from the owner (ingolfshodi for puffin watching), scenic views of horses and mountains, dinner was good and reasonably priced for the area (about $60 for 2 entrees, 1 beer and 1 glass of wine),...

We stayed in the cottages with a beautiful view overlooking the landscape. The owner and check-in girl were both very nice. The room was clean, comfortable, and a decent size for the two of us. We did not have dinner but breakfast the following morning was adequate and included cereal, sliced meats, cheese, vegetables, and toast. Overall, a very nice... More
