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

My dear guest. Many thanks for warm words. Concerning the wifi, there was some trouble with internet-connection in my area yesterday. I wish you all the best. Asmundur Gislason 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

Our family of 5 stayed in a double and a triple room for 1 night, booked as part of a circular trip by Iceland Unlimited. I should point out that we had opted to stay in budget accommodation (with shared facilities) for our trip and we like small and friendly places, so I’m rating it based on those criteria. We...

A great place to stop when visiting the southeast of Iceland (don't miss jokulsarlon). Our stay here was completely impromptu, and i really feel that we lucked out. If you are traveling during a more popular time of year, make sure to book ahead. The restaurant was excellent, and focused on locally sourced fare. I had the beef myself, which... More

It's really nice seeing the horses from your window! Stayed in a room that was wooden feeling (felt very new). With a shared bathroom. Never had to wait for the shower or the toilet (2 on the floor). It really was nice feeling a bit more in the country. Wifi spotty in the room---a lot better when in the dining... More

We stayed one night at his country hotel. The owner was very friendly and directed us to nearby restaurants as at this time they were not serving food at the country hotel (it was not main tourist season). The breakfast was very nice and plentiful. The room was basic but really clean and the beds were comfortable. We had a... More

Jjust off of route 1 outside of Hofn, the location is good. The rooms are furnished simply and are adequately sized in both the room and bathroom. The beds are comfortable. The bathroom lacks amenities--no shampoo, no soap, just something out of a pump jar, no toilet paper roll, just something that dispenses one sheet at a time. The included... More

We stayed at the guesthouse which was 1,5 Kms away. A Traditional and spacious house. The Bedroom was really simple The curtains were dark which is quite important in summer so we spent our night in darkness for once! A big Bathroom well equipped. A silent place The host was really nice and helpful

I was traveling by myself, and I was quite tired by the time I got to the hotel. It was in a great location- outside of town, and just off the ring road so I could hop on again in the morning. The reception was at the same place as the restaurant. Breakfast was included, and was very extensive- they... More
