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

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

Though by definition this hotel is not luxurious, i rate it 5 stars because the owner was really great, welcoming and helpful. She took us in late at night (10pm or so) after we had been looking around, tired and cold. The room was so cozy and warm! we had three beds (one for each) and we all loved how... More

This hotel feels like the middle of nowhere near the ocean! Beautiful surroundings. We got our room upgraded which was lovely and had dinner, which although fairly expensive, was great. Lovely hosts and breakfast - ask about the paintings!

One night stay here on January 2nd. We stayed in a lovely hut which had several rooms with 1 to 3 twin sized beds as well as a loft. Bedding and towels were clean and comfortable. Breakfast included more substantial food than all of the other places we stayed. We were only here in the dark so we didn't experience... More
