This place was really awesome, super comfortable and great staff helping you out. I wouldn't call it a guesthouse and it felt more like a hotel. Egilsstadir is a bigger city coming from all the southern small places that we were at. It has the most beautiful view of the lake (rooms can view the lake as ours did) and... More

We were on a tour of the island and stayed here one night. The name guest house is slightly misleading as it was a glorious hotel, so don't be put off. Large comfy rooms and gorgeous walk-in showers. We were charged to fill up our flasks with tea and coffee, which were haven't been charged at any other hotels on... More

We stayed here in the latter part of October just after the first snow of the year. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the Guesthouse had recently been expanded and given the time of year, was rather quiet. The accommodations were very nice and the location is by the river, about 2 blocks from the town (one of the... More

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
