We visited Vinland Cottage in early July. Cottage was very clean well organised and comfortably dealt with 5 large adults. Shame we could make more of the lovely outside area and barbecue. Would definitely stay again.

I wish there was a six star option. Very welcoming and friendly with lots of information about what to do in the area. Just off the 1 but could be 1 million miles away. The room itself was the most peaceful and relaxing we've stayed in so far. You can sit at the table or lie in bed looking out... More

I liked that it was very clean and nicely furnished. I liked that it had a small fridge and kettle as well as a small desk. It's excellent for a one night stay. The owner was very helpful and explained everything very well. I could tell he cares about his guests enjoying their stay and I appreciated that. Our room... More

We stayed at Vinland Guesthouse just one night, nevertheless I'm sure the room fits very well for a longer period. It's indeed a well equipped small apartment with a spacious bathroom, a kitchenette corner geared with microwave and kettle, a comfortable bed and a table big enough to dine or work on a laptop. We arrived there in a rainy... More

One of our favorite places we stayed in Iceland. Location is just out of town, so a car is helpful for accessing groceries or dining. Really peaceful. We were so impressed with the cottage, we were imagining having one ourselves. We loved everything about it. All surfaces were super clean. The upstairs was spacious enough for four people and the...

I keep returning to Vinland every few months. The owner Binni continues to maintain high standards and goes out of his way to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. Note that this is a room-only place. For breakfast you may drive 5 minutes to Egilsstaðir, or Binni can arrange one at Egilsstaðir Guesthouse for a charge.

Vinland is located in Fellabær, a kilometre or two from Egilsstaðir. I have stayed here many times over the past several years and it continues to serve up a high quality experience. The rooms are extremely comfortable as are the bathrooms. The owner Binni has taken great care and interest in conceiving the premises and he is very service oriented.... More

Very cozy building that houses 6 rooms. Reception is just up the hill at the owners home. The room is modern, clean, and had the largest bathroom so far of my time in Iceland. Nice porch outside if the weather is nice.

Only 2 Km outside Egilstadir, the hotel is worth the price. Clean and neat, not very large rooms though. Our room was nicely green painted with some romantic heart on the door. You can help yourself with tea and coffee for free. The fridge is also available. No breakfast possible but there is a bakery just 300 meters away
