I was suppose to spend the night at the coast but driving over the last mountain the weather took a turn for the worse. I did not want to get stuck there so I turned around and used my gps to find the nearest hotel which ended up being this one. I asked if there was a hostel in town... More

We spent one night in this wonderful place set back from the main road and on the banks of the frozen Eyvindar and we found ourselves to be the only guests that night in that hotel of about 15 rooms or so ( didn't count). Strictly this isn't a guesthouse; it has a proper hotel like feel with a foyer,... More

Stayed here for one night only on a 8 day drive around iceland, friendly staff, clean comfortable room and a good breakfast selection. Situated outside town surrounded in a plantation of conifers it was very quiet so a good nights sleep was enjoyed.

Spent 2 nights here, comfortable and pleasant lodgings. Gwendoline (italian girl) the only staff member there, was fantastic, friendly and helpful too. Definitely worth a stop with local attractions, would definitely recommend and stay again.

We spent two nights here when travelling round Iceland. Our room was in the annex and was a very good size, with a small wooden deck and table and chairs outside the french windows. The bathroom was a decent size too and everywhere was clean. It was also exceptionally warm in the room (a bit too warm at times!). The... More

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.
