The guesthouse was outside town and one needed to pay attention to the small signs by the roadside for the turn off from R1 to get there. Once there, it was a heaven especially when there was constant rain and gale-force wind like when we were there. The guesthouse building got four rooms spread on two floors with a clean... More

The people are extremely friendly and helpful with lots of suggestions about the local area and lots of encouragement to eat more of their delicious breakfast food. The rooms are large, clean and ours (upstairs) had a lovely view. Bathroom was spotless with a really good rain shower. There is a kitchen where you can cook and a lounge area... More

The location is pretty amazing, on the way to Dyrhólaey, but a little far from Höfn! There are a lot of amazing sites to see nearby. In the guesthouse everything looks new and very clean, confortable room, and nice bathroom. The breakfast was pretty good! One of the best stays I had in Iceland!

Everything about this place felt magical, from the super-comfy beds to the breakfast feast to the chickens running around outside our window. And the location is perfect for anyone wanting to explore Dyrholaey, Skogafoss, and the rest of this incredible landscape. I would definitely stay here again.

We really loved this place and was sad that we could only stay for one night! The room was extremely well presented, so much so that I thought it was brand new. The service was amazing, really personal and the breakfast was by far the best we had all week - homemade pancakes, cake and a great selection of fresh... More

Breakfast was really good with a good spread of items to choose from. However, we had difficulties connecting to the... More

Most of my very positive feedback has already been stated, so I will just say ditto, ditto, ditto. If you're looking for a homey, relaxing, intimate, comfortable inn/B&B, then this is the place. Eva (keeper) is very friendly, knowledgable and cooks a mean breakfast! Walk to the black sand beach or take a short drive to the lighthouse - both... More
