We were welcomed with hospitality to our cabin for up to 4 ppl. It has small kitchen for cooking, a small fridge and all necessary equipment. Bathroom is good, hot water in showers. It is a very pleasant hot tub outdoors on the terrasse that holds 42 degrees. Clean and cozy. Absolutely recommend this place!

The log cabin was on the edge of town with a nice view off of the deck. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. The cabin is very nicely decorated and beds were comfy. (Ladder-type stair to upstairs bedrooms could perhaps be a challenge for some.) Kitchen was well-equipped with coffee maker, etc... We only stayed one night, but... More

nice wooden house for 4 of us, clean but the water in the jacuzzi is too cold for any of us to bath in. However, FREE kayak!! There are fishes in the lake so you can bring your own fishing rod if you want to go fishing in iceland! Nice kitchen where you can cook your own food.

Staff very welcoming. Cabin very comfortable with good facilities and comfortable bed. Free wifi and use of boats and kayaks. The best bonus was the hot tube which we made use of. The only downer was Wwe thought from the photos that the location was more private but its as private as it could be with highway one side, hotel... More

Booked a cabin here the first time I had visited Iceland. Picture drinking Gull beer while sitting in your hot tub in the middle of a fjord, that's all that needs to be said about this place. Excellent and if you stay here you won't ever forget it.

We stayed in the cabins for a couple of days to explore the north of Iceland. Even though the weater in Olafsfjordur wasn't the best, the cabins were a good place to stay. The kitchen is stocked with standard appliances, and there is a grocery store a couple of minutes away. The beds were really comfortable and the living room... More

Great place, decent rooms, fantastic jacuzzi, warm house, all the things you may need to have a comfortable stay. Easy access to places to eat, and close to nature. Welcoming staff, very helpful, definitely stay there again. Nice and private.

We have spent only one night in Olafsfjordur on our tour around Iceland - and I do regret that. This place would be worth several days stay - to discover the trekking paths in the surrounding, kayaking on the lake (included in the room rate), or just sitting in the hottub and enjoying the evening. Next time, for me obligatory... More
