We ended up in Egilsstadir unexpectedly after a car accident and the owner was extremely kind and accommodating, even going to buy ice for our bruises! The guesthouse itself is clean and modern, well furnished kitchen and very comfortable rooms. The atmosphere is a little quieter but we were also there before peak season. Highly recommend to anyone staying overnight... More

We stayed 1 night in Egilsstadir and chose this hotel based on the price. Definitely a great choice! The owner/host was one of the nicest people I've ever met. You could tell he really appreciated the business. The hotel itself was spotless and modernly decorated. The rooms were spacious and clean. We didn't use the kitchen facilities, but I would... More

We stayed in Lyngas Guesthouse for 1 night during ring road drive. First of all the city of Eglisstadir is pretty boring, so it is better to stay somewhere else overnight. About guesthouse: Located in front of a gas station, within a long walk from a couple of bonus and another supermartet and a restaurant. There is literary nothing to... More

We stayed at this guesthouse for one night and we enjoyed our stay! The guesthouse is very modern and clean. The rooms are spacious - two twin beds pushed together (like most Icelandic hotels), big windows and a desk with a TV. The shower & bathroom are in the hallway, but even those are spacious! Kitchen and common room were... More

We stayed here for one night with half a full house. The pros: cheap, central location, & super clean! The cons: We had the twin room which was faces the road and the window vibrates every time a car drives by!!! Super soft beds, only 1 bath & toilet which gets very busy in the morning. Tip: Bonus supermarket is... More

This was my second visit to the Guest house. The first time my mother and I were all alone on the second floor. This time it was full to the gills. We still had a great time and were grateful for a super clean facility, well appointed kitchen and nice linens. It is nice when traveling with mixed company to... More

1 night in this guesthouse in a not a so nice building but all 1st floor has been fully fitted for receiving visitors (kitchen, showers, lounge ...) It is very clean, and staff is ready to advise, support ... You will have the choice to ask for bed linen or to sleep in your sleeping bag according to your budget.... More

I enjoyed staying here. We stayed in a room with one bed and a bunk bed. It was very comfortable and the room was nice and spacious. Theres a kitchen with everything you need to cook and a fridge/freezer to store your items. The dining area is great and everything was really clean. You even have to take your shoes... More

I really liked the guy running this place. We drove through some nasty weather, and stopped here before taking on "the gnarly road" in the morning that connects the east coast to the north. Our room had a queen bed and a bunk bed, which was nice, because i got the queen and got to spread out. The common areas... More
