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.

We stayed here in late March and had a great time. Location is good, we went to Geysir and Gullfoss before staying here and then leaving for South Iceland the next day. The restaurant attached to the hotel is wonderful. Best steak sandwich I've ever had. The bread was so good. The friendly staff gave us a few pointers on... More

I stayed here in March of 2014 and this hotel is amazing. What a wonderful place to stay. The beauty that surrounds this hotel is absolutely breath taking. The staff are so wonderful, the food was delicious and I found the perfect Icelandic sweater here! Home made ice-cream made from the milk from the cows on property. I would stay... More

The dining area and bar have recently been redone and with a little thought and character. You can see the cattle enjoying their silage through the restaurant windows which are juxtaposed with the cowshed! The food was great and service friendly and helpful. The rooms we stayed in were 'chalet type' and were nicely done. The only criticism is that... More

I've been to the Ice cream barn and café at Efsti-Dalur numerous times with my customers and it is always a big hit. The setting is perfect; cozy, yet modern and roomy and the windows into the cow-house make this a very different kind of café. Beyond belief, having the cattle only meters away it only smells of delicious newly... More

The whole family went for a one-night stay at Efsti-dalur and we simply loved it! The service is excellent, everybody smiling and friendly, almost felt like we were old friends. We watched the cows, and got up close to the calfs. The Icecream barn has the most amazing homemade icecream and very good waffles. The food at the restaurant was... More

All wooden walls, floors and a tiled bathroom. the room was basic, but plenty of storage space including a large built in desk area, plenty of shelves and nooks for your things, and two large chairs with a table and lamp. We were in room 3 and the window... More

Comfortable accommodation in prefabricated trusses. Excellent location to visit the golden circle. Full breakfast with homemade products and a view of the barn with cows. Good restaurant for those who want to book dinner maybe the supper service would be a bit 'to improve as well as dishes that create a lot of expectation (beacause of creative names) but we... More
