We were a little concerned as we drove up towards a rather dilapidated farm building and then it was strange to take your shoes off at the door but.... The owner was very welcoming and friendly and our rooms and ensuites were clean, modern and a very good size. We chose to eat in Vik in the evening (an easy... More

The family that runs the Guesthouse left a 'passive' impression (The lady jumped up from the couch at the reception, after we had gotten back in for a forgotten invoice). We could not leave our impression behind that this overly expensive B&B (run besides the farm) is just 'about the money'. Breakfast was okay, however no interaction with the man... More

We stayed here for one night in May, booked by our travel agency. It's located a short distance from Vik, probably on some farm as there was the manure smell when we stepped out of the car. The guesthouse itself has no signage, just look out for a building with a dining area with full length windows. Before you stepped... More

We had a two bed room with private bathroom. There was enough space in the room and also in the bathroom. The rooms have a book with some... More

My boyfriend and I arrived at this guesthouse one day earlier than expected but the host continued to treat us with kind hospitality. She provided us with breakfast and gave us towels to take a shower even though it was much earlier than the usual check in time. The room we were given was spacious and had a nice view... More

We arrived after a long day driving and day spent at Blue Lagoon. At first we drove past it and into Vik. Probably should have checked before! So take note if you are coming from Reykjavik it is 18km before Vik. We noticed dinner must be pre booked. Understandable in view of the size of the guesthouse. We had a... More

As our first night in Iceland I wanted to stay somewhere close to the Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls. Just outside of Vik this little farm hotel did just that trick. It offered a warm comfortable, clean room with shared bathrooms. Offered good value and nice views. They provided breakfast in the morning and a walk around the ground make you... More
