We wanted accommocations near Vik but away from the hustle and bustle. Guesthouse Villir fit the bill, being about 20 minutes from town. Our hostess was so very nice and helpful in making arrangements for some sightseeing. Our room was clean and tidy and had it's own private bathroom and views from two adjacent windows. A perfect place for taking... More

The location for this guesthouse was great - off the beaten path, not in middle of Vik, but very close and great location to get an early start to all the sights nearby. We had a shared bathroom (between 2 rooms) and it was very clean and well kept. We ate dinner here and I would recommend it. Outdoor patio... More

We loved the atmosphere at this guesthouse. We also had dinner here - it was superb! The owner made us fish and lamb dishes from stratch and they were topped off with yummy dessert.... More

We stayed here for one night on our trip around the island, and this was such a nice place. A nice and cosy atmosphere. We had dinner there, which can also be recommended. Breakfast was nice as well. Rooms are in good condition and seem quite new

Great stay at Guesthouse Vellir. Nice people, very clean and good food. We where there for two nights and we love the place. The place is beautiful and you fell like you are home away from home. I recommend this place for people with kids.

Stayed overnight here while touring the ring road around Iceland. Nice room, clean and comfortable. Nice location with a great view of the mountains and local farms. The main highlight was the food - really excellent lamb, soup, dessert and beer!

We stayed here twice in May 2015, once on our own and once with clients. On both occasions we were very pleased with the accommodation, hosts and location. On the first occasion we stayed in the cabins; although not as posh as the main building this was by far the better of the two. Small sitting area, kitchen and a... More

Beds were comfy. Nice location, fairly close to Vik. Free wifi was nice and fast, good signal. Breakfast was only 8-9am, not a lot of flexibility there. No TV in the room. Somewhat thin walls, but there are not too many guest rooms so it wasn't too loud.

Situated about 1.5 km off Route 1 in the shadows of the looming Mt. Petursey it is easy to miss this guesthouse despite the little sign that marks the turn into its driveway. A small little place managed by Sigurd, this has about 6-7 rooms ( at least in the building that we stayed) that share two clean WCs. We... More

I've booked 1 night at Guesthouse Vellir for 5 people in February 2015. We departed early morning for Guesthouse Vellir but the weather was really bad. We were caught in a snow-storm with winds blowing with 200 kph on the road from Reykjavik to Gueshouse Vellir. We tried advancing but it proved impossiblea s we were in a line of... More
