This was a great place to stay in. The dinner there was absolutely amazing (one of the best we've had in Iceland) and the rooms were very spacious and inviting. It was very nice to see the cows from the main building.

We stayed in this farm hotel for one night in December. Great location close to the golden circle. The room had fantastic views, was clean and most importantly warm. The outdoor hot tub was a great experience. The breakfast had a good choice and the burgers in the restaurant were really nice. I would definitely stay again.

Most adorable place to stay! A working farm, but the main building which houses a restraurant and coffee shop are extremely modern and rustic looking. Great food, super nice people. The cabins out front are ADORABLE. Perfect area to see the northern lights. Wished there was a tv in the room though! Only thing though- it was slightly difficult to... More

We didn't stay at the hotel. We were on a tour that stopped and let us enjoy a barn that is split with the cows on one side and us on the other. It is a very clever way to make use of their building. Enjoyable for the cows as well as the visitors. We learned the history with our... More

The room was clean and cozy with a great window for keeping a watch out for the northern lights. I agree with the person who said you could hear through the walls. The person next to us was coughing up a storm all night. The breakfast was very good though.

I booked this hotel because of the GREAT price and location near Geysir and Gullfoss...quick and easy drive. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are very quaint...simple and clean, but you can hear EVERYTHING from the rooms next door and behind you. I was glad I had ear plugs. If you are looking for the Northern lights,... More

We arrived after a long day of driving and sight-seeing. We were thrilled to have a place to stay on a working farm. We drove along a long dirt road to the restaurant where we found the staff to be friendly and very helpful. We were directed to our room which was in a multi-component cabin a short walk from...

The burgers were amazing! This is a perfect lunch stop between Thingvellir and Gulfoss or Geysir. We were a little bummed that we were too full to have some ice cream. The cows seemed well cared for and the dogs on the farm were also very cute. Would recommend to anyone in search of a very fresh and tasty burger.

Cosy pine log room with nice bathroom. Nice size rooms. Part of a working farm with a dairy and a very good restaurant. If you have young children or young at heart ones they will love that the restaurant has window looking into the barn. You can watch the cows while having dinner or eating ice cream made on the...

Beautiful and cosy, and 15 minutes away from Geysir. Excellent service, tasteful food, great breakfast. They have a farm in there (you can actually eat on the restaurant with a view of the cows...) so everything's fresh. Try the Hamburguer with lobster in the restaurant... best meal I had in a week!
