We only stayed for a night but thought this place was really friendly and welcoming. They even sang us some Icelandic love songs as we were on our honeymoon! The location was convenient - especially with a car - and the room had a mini apartment feel. Dinner is recommended - there is a fish buffet in summer.

We stayed here unfortunately only for one night as it was a very pleasant place with everything we needed. Self contained cabins with little decks where we could dry our washing and cooking facilities . Very good breakfast included in price and for once in Iceland we didn't feel we were getting ripped off. All very adequate though they will... More

We were lucky and got a cute little cabin outside. Unexpected sulfur shower included (geothermal hot water. Surprising when brushing your teeth :)); staff was very friendly. Dinner and breakfast buffet was ok.

Excellent family run hotel where you feel staff really want to make sure you have the best possible stay. Lovely food with a home cooked quality to it. We stayed one night and felt everything was organised to make our life easier.

There just aren't that many trees in Iceland, but a visionary farmer long ago planted fir & spruce on this hillside land overlooking the town of Egilsstadir. We had read that the main house could be noisy, so we asked for a cabin. Ours was comfortable, ample, private, and nicely furnished. After a glass of wine on the porch we... More

I want sure what to expect based on the reviews is read but this was the friendliest welcome we had in Iceland and nice quiet room. Dinner was a buffet but with just one choice (cod) that meant the focus was on fresh produce and very enjoyable (there was a way of ordering lamb but it looked to have been... More

The Eyvindara Hotel wasn't bad but our room was a ' Compact' wooden chalet. The double bed had walls on 3 sides & the bedding was poor. Bedside light was on one of the walls. The room also had bunk beds, fridge & kitchenette with sparse Crockery & cutlery. Only 2 chairs at the table so if this was accommodation... More

Had been booked into this location by our tour company. Clean, not quiet during the day due to outside construction .... and a specific place set aside for smoking. Even with a kind of ash tray. Sound silly? Not at all. How did the chef save me. In the morning was on their terrace wishing much for a cup of... More
