A great stay right on the main road. The owner couple is lovely and informative. The breakfast is a great addition. There was no double bed option or we weren't given one if any. Twin beds we got weren't that comfortable.

Pros: clean sheets, great breakfast, near golden circle, host and hostess working on being friendly after money collected What more do you want? Compared to 12 other b&bs..... Cons: cold, musty feel in basement rooms, not as clean overall as other B&B s, not well decorated (needs quilts maybe and pictures), shower drain needs fixing, sink drain...,shower in larger basement...

A nice location and a nice breakfast but not a homey feel. Basement rooms and a big sign that says "no self catering" in the kitchen. In comparison to the other guest houses I stayed at in Iceland this was just "ok". I think the only interactionI had with the owner was when she had me pay the second I... More

Located next to the Ringroad, it is a useful place for a nightover. The guesthouse itself is nice decorated, rooms are very small and simple furnished and the shared bathrooms aren't that clean as they supposed to be. Actually they were pretty dirty - but that might be the fault of the other guests as well. Breakfast is very delicious... More

We stayed here on our first night of driving the ring road. It was excellent, well located, easy to find, warm and comfortable. We had the family room which had a lovely view, good wifi signal and we all slept soundly. Everything is spotlessly clean including the shared bathrooms. We enjoyed the interaction with our hosts and other guests and... More

A very nice property, used to be a prison. Conveniently located near Selfoss. Several mountains/glaciers in sight in good weather. We just love the dining room and the breakfast -- especially the herring fish. The only downside is that the wifi signal is quite weak at the second floor.

A beautiful house in a very beautiful location. Our hosts were welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was fantastic and lots of food available. Located just off Route 1, easy to find. Amazing views of Mount Hekla and some superb falls near by.

Everyone should stay there for breakfast itself. Amazing - herrings, homemade bread, jams and pastries. The rooms and facilities don't disappoint,.place is very clean. Service very friendly. Good value for money. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely stay at Guesthouse Bitra. The guesthouse is primely located on highway 1, which is perfectly located for South-West Iceland's activities. From there, you can drive east to the various waterfalls and glaciers or drive west to geothermal activities and hiking in Hveragerdi or a bit further to Rekjavik. The guesthouse itself is lovely and you will... More

We stayed here on the second week of September which would be considered off season. There was only one other guest. This a great place to stay if you are driving the Ring road. It's near Selfoss but otherwise completely isolated. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. There are 2 shared bathrooms which are well maintained. As the other... More
