We selected this venue mainly for the location and the convenient price and have not been disappointed. The bungalow where we stayed was geared as a little apartment, with a kitchenette, a table near the bed and a bathroom. Despite the not recent design, everything was clean and in good working conditions. Wifi in the room was ok. If you... More

Here is where we got best value for money. Simple down to earth accommodation, with all you need for a short stay in your own private cabin with private facilities.. Friendliness and service were of the same high level as we later got used to in our roundtrip over Iceland.

The small apartments are simply equipped but perfectly adequate for a couple of days stay. We were out and about all day and only in the rooms to sleep at night. Would recommend if you are looking for simple, inexpensive accommodation. The Gesthus is well located to visit many locations in the area. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for one night after coming back from a week spent in the South and East – we wanted a better location for accessing the Golden Circle (Gulfoss and Geysir etc) which is about 1 hour’s drive. It is a small campsite which also has wooden cabins, there are hot tubs, chickens, a cafe, and good wi-fi connection... More

We stayed here over Thanksgiving of 2013, and the rooms can best be described as quaint. They'er all in little cabins spread about the property. It is a very nice spot, just a short walk or drive to the center of the small town of Selfoss. We chose to stay here as a nice stop along the Golden Circle for... More

Situated with about 15 other duplex guest cabins in a quiet setting in the town of Selfoss, our comfortable lodging served us extremely well for five nights. A great deal of intelligence had been utilized in the planning of the layouts of both the campground and our cabin. Each cabin enjoyed privacy, quietness and ample parking. The interior of the...

Stayed for one night in a cabin. Nothing fancy and a bit worn down, but it was cheap. Value for money. Good wifi connection. Nice hottubs - good place to relax after sightseeing all day. There are blinds in some windows in the cabins, but not in doors = lot of light in the cabin at night. Restaurants are withing... More

Loved this little place. Cabin was warm & cosy & staff were friendly & helpful. Although we did not have breakfast we saw the kitchen & dining room on arrival & like our cabin it was spotless. The only improvement we could think of was that a sachet or 2 of coffee/tea would have been nice. We would certainly recommend... More

My boyfriend and I had a cosy cabin which comes with a private bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. We managed to prepare our own dinner for the night and breakfast the next day. The cabin is well managed and clean. It was a comfortable stay for us. The owners were friendly. We arrived outside the check-in hours but earlier... More
