We stayed a night in one of the cabins which was warm and comfortable. It is in a beautiful location down a lane off the main road. The restaurant serves good food - delicious cod cooked with butter and herbs. The resident dog is happy for you to throw stones for him to chase!

Views were great of the glaciers. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent supper. Great location to explore from. Close to Hofn and the main highway and yet very quiet. Nice staff and reasonably priced.

We stayed here for one night and found our cabin absolutely adorable. Very clean, comfortable, and modern. The view from our cabin was quite nice as well. The owner was very nice and helpful while giving us directions. Breakfast was good, simple, and traditional. However, there are separate sections for people who want complete and utter quiet and we were... More

We were touring the southern part of Iceland and I booked a triple room. The room had shared facilities, and was really cozy and perfect for what we needed. Sadly since we visited in October, the main restaurant was closed. The host let us stay in the restaurant and let us play cards and drink until we were ready to... More

Clean room, good and free wifi, parking right in front of the room (little cottage), rich and fresh breakfast, very calm, friendly people - you'll feel like spending a night at good friends. Would come again.

We got 2 rooms here, one was in the older cabin and the other in the newer attached rooms. The older cabins were cute, has more privacy as it is attached to only 1 other cabin and closer to the restaurant but a bit too close to the horses (if you know what I mean). The newer one does not... More

This review is only for the horse ride at Arnanes, as I did not stay at the hotel. I was really surprised by the experience I had at Arnanes. I went out to the farm in the evening to inquire about going on a ride the following day. I scheduled a ride at 10:00 am, and when I arrived, I... More

We spend one night during our road trip around Iceland and it was one of the best accommodations we stayed in. We were located in the main building, close to the restaurant. Building was beautiful, all wooden, only couple of rooms plus the owners own accommodation, so it was nice and quiet. Just a short drive from Hofn city center... More

We had two rooms for one night in the motel type building in August, 2015 for three of us and the accommodations were spacious and comfortable with pine wood throughout the rooms and very clean. We received a warm welcome by the owner, Asmundur Gislason on check in and inside the rooms were a menu from their restaurant. The owner... More

This was the second of six bed and breakfast accommodations we stayed at in Iceland. Compared to the other five, this B&B met all of our expectations except one. When we checked in, we were told that our room was up the road about 1.5 kilometers. After hiking all day, we were tired and had a hard time figuring out... More
