This was a good place to stay way up in the north west of Iceland with its own seemingly tame Arctic Fox pup! Also had a small thermal spring which we 'of course' had to try but there was rather too many people using it for its size. Huge barn now a restaurant and they were very accommodating for our...

Good things first, the nature and the surroundings are really beautiful. We hiked one day and enjoyed it a lot. We also tried the horseback riding, which was nice. The food was good, both dinner and breakfast. Dinner was a bit on the heavy side, but the taste was good. The staff was very friendly. Some not-so-great things about Heydalur:... More

My family stayed in a summer house for one night during our trip through Iceland. The summer house was a bit rustic but it was clean and comfortable. It's not a luxury accommodation but we enjoyed our stay there. They even had an arctic fox that we played with.

Definitively below the average of the guesthouse tested so far. Room not only small but without closet; very unpractical furniture; heating and electrical malfunction. On the other side a good dinner, but pricey. Excellent breakfast.

This hotel is a hidden gem. The hotel is located in a beautiful valley Heydalur, only a few miles from road 61. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant is outstanding and offers a good variation of food. It is very pleasant to stay at the hotel and there are many activities for those interested.

We stayed at the hotel in Heydalur one night in June. The room is new and few things which are usually in hotels are still lacking but this is all going to be perfect. And the landscape in the valley Heydalur is interesting, the signs for the plants and flowers are useful. The kitchen in the evening produced great and... More

Its a bit difficult to get to, but what a unique experience. The new wing is nice but not really finished. The rooms are large, but sparsely furnished. Ours looked out on an unfinished miniature golf course(?) with a very large back hoe in the middle. The restaurant was excellent, some of the best food we had in Iceland for... More

We stayed here for only 1 night but could easily have stayed a lot longer. The food in the onsite restaurant is fantastic, the setting breathtakingly beautiful. There are hot springs at the hotel which have been converted in to a couple of hot pools, make sure you use them after a long day, walking, horse riding or kayaking. There... More

This takes some getting to but definitely worth it. We were warmly welcomed by Stella, the owner and immediately offered tea. The main room is a converted cow barn whilst the bedrooms are either converted stables or the like or a new build which the family and staff built themselves-it will be fully finished next year. The staff are young... More

We camped here or two nights to go on the 5hr kayaking tour that this guest house leads. On arrival we were stuck by the beauty of the location, and on sitting down to dinner loved the home cooked food on offer. The kayaking tour with seals up the nearby fjord was a great natural outing - highly recommended! We... More
