4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This guesthouse is located behind the main street of Stikkisholmur, next to the restaurants and to the harbour. The rooms have no ensuited bathroom but the shared facilities (and the rooms) are perfectly clean and reach the expectations. The breakfast is ok, and parking and wifi are free. The owner is very shy but she is a nice person.

We enjoyed our 1 night stay at this guesthouse. We are a couple with a 13 year old daughter and were given adjoining rooms (for the price of one), which gave us plenty of space. We enjoyed meeting and talking to the other travellers who were hanging out in the common room (kitchen). The breakfast buffet (included) was excellent. It... More

We stayed for 1 night and found the hostess very helpful and friendly, the room clean and tidy and the breakfast very good. We had a lovely stay in town, nice walk about and pleasant dinner! Marius and Lynette Van Der Merwe. South Africa

Despite we stayed only 1 night, you immediately feel comfortable in this guesthouse! The room, the kitchen, the bathroom - everything was very clean and the owners were very kind. We enjoyed the warm atmosphere of this accomodation! Thank you!

I just spent one night there. The contact was very friendly and fast and late check in (21:00) was no problem. The bathroom and room were very clean and there were kitchen facilities to use as well. The location is perfect for people who use the ferry and is still very quiet.

Granted, the hotel situation in Iceland is pretty dire, but it's still hard to recommend this B&B. It's basically a hostel (at hotel prices), with small rooms, shared bathrooms, no TV, one outlet in the entire room, and paper-thin walls with families in adjacent rooms angrily telling you to shush at 8:30 PM. It's literally someone's house masquerading as a... More

I stayed one night mid August in Holmur Inn with my wife whilst travelling circling Iceland . It was definitely the worst place we stayed in during our holidays . The room was cheap ( 80€ ) but what we got for that was very poor value for money !!! : One very small room ( no TV nor phone... More

We stayed here as a couple for one night during our stay in Stykkisholmur. The room we were in was absolutely tiny. The entire bed was taking up the room, plus our opened suitcase took up the rest of the space. It felt extremely cramped. The house itself is fairly clean. All guests share bathrooms. I noticed the sink in... More

Stayed in a double room for one night. Room was fairly small with a slanted roof. We had two suitcases and two backpacks and it was a tight squeeze. The bed was comfrotable, though. There were two shared bathrooms for four or five rooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen for all guests to use. We saved some money one... More

I was for two night at Holmur-inn in July 2013. We loved the location only one minute walken distance from the harbour and three restaurant in one minute distance , three minutes walk from the swinning pool and grocery store. Good breakfast, and everything very clean, and the owner very friendly. I recommend this guesthouse to all my friend.
