This was our last stay during our visit of 2 weeks in Iceland. Cabin was primitive, needed lots of repairs. Kitchen equipment far from complete (not even spoons etc for 2 persons). The cabin was also very small. The positive thing is that there is a restaurant close by.

We stayed one night at the campground (so, we slept in a tent and NOT in a hut) and it was totally fine. They have a few rows of shrubs that did a good job blocking the wind, a common kitchen area so you can cook w/o using your stove fuel, bathrooms with running water (even hot showers), and a... More

We rented one of the cottages with private bathroom and it was big and clean (that's what matters the most for us). Don't expect too much, but in the end it's a good place at a reasonable price. I have no idea how the shared bathroom are, but the cottages are ok. The location is very nice: just in front... More

nice little cabin slept 4 in bunkbeds. Little sink & Kettle... but we had a BBQ outside. Lots of space to sit on the grass outside and a nice view of the river. Only 2 showers in the shared block meant a queue in the morning. Good shared kitchen with some pans etc to use. Had to hunt round for... More

Eventhough the cottages are cozy, with a good view (although small), their cleanliness is not so good. When we went to sleep, we noticed in our bed, under the pillow were the pijamas from a past guest. This means nobody took care th change the linen, or even to check it over. I do not recommend this place. In my... More

I reserved a cabin at Arhus, with a cancellation policy with a full refund if cancelled before July 5. I emailed them one week before the deadline, to cancel my reservation, and I didn't hear anything back from them. I've since emailed them 4 times, and I have heard nothing and have not been refunded the $180 they charged my... More

To arrive here at the end of a long day of travelling was really comforting. The food at the restaurant was excellent, the cabins nice, new and clean and we got a private bathroom for the same price for which we got cabins with shared bathrooms in other places in Iceland, which was really cool. The only thing we didn't... More

Stayed in room 12A for 2 nights during our tour of Iceland, rooms are basic, but I have no complaints, they were clean, everything you need for a base. Wifi worked for the first night but then we had to sit in the restaurant to use the internet, which wasn't really an issue. People were friendly and very approachable :)... More

Stayed here for two nights as part of a 4 night Northern Lights tour. The site was lovely, close to the river and onsite restaurant and an excellent location for seeing the Lights. The accommodation was listed as 'simple cottages' and they really were basic. The beds were quite uncomfortable and needed new mattresses. The lighting was extremely poor-one light... More

Stayed here as part of a Northern Lights tour, whilst the location is lovely next to the river and was the perfect spot for a spectacular evening of Northern Lights watching the accomodation is in need of upgrade. The rooms were very dark - one main light over table and two small reading lamps over bed - No light at... More
