Delightful cabins in this farm complex. Arrived during a fierce storm but were cosy and warm. Very comfortable and distinctive accommodation. Excellent location for exploring the Geyssir and Gulfloss waterfall. Breakfast plentiful and varied. Local produce used in the restaurant- the burgers were lovely (pity the house red wine had run out!). Interesting exhibition of ice-cream making and delightful to... More

This looked amazing online, and we weren't disappointed! It was clean and comfortable, the rooms were very nice, and the food was phenomenal! Wish we could have stayed more than 1 night. It's a great location too, close to Geysir and Gulfoss which you must see. Great service as well.

Stopped here as part of a tour. Well worth it, home made burgers were delicious and the home made ice cream absolutely delicious. The farmer's son gave us the low down on the farm and its family history and origins. Told us all about the cows which can be viewed through glass windows in the restaurant. A unique experience.

Nice and comfortable rooms, very good food, also when we were very late back from a trip into the highlands. Some beautiful dogs welcomed us as well. And they have incredible service! Thanks for everything, I will definately come back again.

This is a really lovely place to stay :) Room: The room was in a nice log cabin, with a great view, and excellent underfloor heating (We stayed in January). The room was very large, it had an en-suite bathroom, and the bed was very comfy. It also had free wi-fi. We just had to open the door to look... More

This is a lovely working farm. The cabins are simple- ( No TV- not a problem for me)- the showers are natural geothermal so have the distinctive sulphur smell. There is some noise from the next cabin. But the food is delicious and the family that run the outfit more than make up for anything not perfect- The farmhouse doesn't... More

We stopped in here on our way back from the Geysir. It was beautifully designed to view the dairy cows from behind the glass while we took a break from driving. Their ice cream was good but the fresh skyr was delicious. Definitely better than anything you get in the store! The woman working patiently answered my questions about how... More

Lovely rural location on a working farm. Cosy, warm cabins make great accommodation. The restaurant is uniquely joined to the cowshed. Sounds strange but is a lovely feature (and no you can't smell them!). Local produce served in the restaurant was good quality and tasty. Breakfast and wifi included.

We spent one night at the Farmhotel, part of a 12-day tour of Iceland. We were exhausted when we arrived but perked up with the room--a roomy, quiet and well-appointed cabin (i.e. it had a coffee pot, huge mugs etc.) to spend the night. Even better was the restaurant. Although an unexpected huge tour bus had just finished eating and... More

And with the cows to watch through the windows - definitely homemade and fresh products. Had some of the styr - a yogurty product and very tasty, open faced sandwiches of various sorts. All good. This is what I expected from a sampler lunch in Iceland, and they delivered! Restaurant only, did not look at hotel.
