We were a group of friends touring and trekking in Iceland. We found this place as the best in our tour. The impressive big building stands near by the small town but you feels in outside farm with all the beautiful nature around. There is also a dairy were you can buy the farm products. In the town, not far... More

The hotel has recently been extended and the extension had only been opened for two months. It was very impressive with lots of natural wood and character. Rooms and facilities were excellent, (our bedroom overlooked the lake) a restaurant which is very well known for its great cooking and very convenient for facilities being very close to shops and other...

Guesthouse Egilsstadir was one of our stops on our self-drive round Iceland. After some slight apprehension on first seeing the hotel (externally somewhat austere and lacking in allure (as with so many of the hotels we have seen on this visit) were greeted with a pleasant welcome at reception in the well designed and furnished entrance foyer.. We were given... More

This hotel is on the edge of a small town although it has the look and feel of being way out in the countryside. There is a modern shopping mall a short walk away with banks and a very nice coffee shop as well as supermarkets. It is near a small airstrip. The hotel is new with good food, good... More

The hotel is easy to find at the edge of Egilsstadir. It is lovely located, on its own by the Lagarfljót lake but just a five-minute walk to a tourist information, shop ("Netto" supermarket just across the road and “Bonus” not far away) and café in Egilsstadir. We stayed in a double room for two nights, in the new, modern... More

We arrived here around 6pm, the hotel is easy to find at the edge of Egilsstadir. The hotel outside and lobby seem very nice. We checked in and were told to take a lift down one level, then go outside, take an outside stairs down a flight (no lift) where we would see room 110. Room 110 has a view... More

We were staying in the new part of the hotel and the room was very good, with a lake view. But this was after complaining about the room allocated which was in the new block but in the basement, overlooking a rundown building with a bucket full of cigarette ends outside. However it was rectified immediately, we were offered a... More

We stayed in a double room with a view over the Lagarfljót lake. The "guesthouse", well, hotel is more appropriate, is lovely located, on its own by the lake but just a 5 minute walk to a tourist info, shop (I recommend the store "Netto" for groceries / snacks for the car ride) and café in Egilsstadir.

Nicely reconstucted old mansion with modern extensions and lovely view to the lake. Even thought we only stayed here for 1 night, this was a premium guesthoust experience. Fast check-in, helpfull staff, Clean and modern rooms, with lovely view to the lake. It was very quiet and comfortable to sleep. Restaurant was very nice, but a bit expensive (like other... More

If you want charm and antiques, be sure to ask for them. There is a new addition to the property that is functional and practical, but not at all charming. It more resembles a concrete bunker with rooms as charmingly decorated as a hospital room. We also had hoped for a quiet stay, but there were loud, unsupervised children playing... More
