This review is for the restaurant only - in the middle of nowhere, on the way to see Geyser and Gullfoss - fab ice-cream, soooo creamy , funny to eat burgers and ice-cream right by the cows that they came from ! Really reasonable and well worth seeking out !

Loved this place, definitely the best we stayed in. We were greeted warmly. The lounge with glass through to the cow shed is a quirky treat,watching the calf's and cows as an animal lover was very cool! The room was cosy and comfortable, great views over the beautiful scenic countryside. Both dinner and breakfast were good. overall a great stay!

Stayed here after road trip to the east, before heading back to Reykjavik. Working farm with horses, cows and calves (that you can pet!). Good restaurant on site, including coffee bar with ice cream. There was even a rowdy hen party dining and eating ice cream the evening we checked in, and the staff handled it in stride. Located up... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Farmhotel Efstidalur. You can really tell that this is a family-run business and that the family takes pride in their farm and their guest accommodations. The room was cozy and comfortable and had a view overlooking the valley. The location is convenient for visiting the Golden Circle. The restaurant is farm to... More

We got engaged in their cabins in this farm complex so this place will always hold a special place in our hearts. However, that's not the reason that I would give them 5 stars. The price of the property is very reasonable considering its location, which is very close to geysir and waterfalls. We drove up to the area during... More

What a fantastic stay! Cosy and very clean rooms, the meals in the restaurant were delicious and I never had better icecream in my life. The whole place is charming with love to details and close to gullfoss and the geysir. Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. I will definitely come here again on my next trip to iceland.

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.
