Edinborg guesthouse = an annex of another self check-in hotel (hotel Lambafell) ; breakfast there (better have a car) ; tiny "hot tub" (not a "pool"...) also located in hotel Lambafell. Nothing for the Edinborg guesthouse contrary to what is written. Little billard table (located upstairs, rooms downstairs... so you can't play after 10 pm because of the noise...) Tiny... More

After 9 days of good experiences in Iceland, we were quite unhappy to find our first bad experience. First, the initial door experience is tricky - accessible only w an emailed password that hopefully you have handy. As we heard a number of knocks through the night, this strategy seems to not work that well. After getting inside, we found... More

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, hot water, beautiful view....make sure you check your email for the pass code or you can't get in. Also, it is signed with Hotel Edinborg not guesthouse. We didn't eat the breakfast but it was a buffet in the log cabin close by..this was our first guesthouse and was very nice

True to the pictures, the rooms are clean and modern and the upstairs game room is comfortable and nice too. The service was great, breakfast was good, and the surrounding views are spectacular. It's definitely not cheap in the height of summer tourist season, but it's one of very few places around and convenient to all of the locations we... More

There were 7 in our group, We stayed 3 nights, Our rooms were ready when we arrived (mid afternoon) The rooms are cozy, beds are comfortable. Can't say enough about the manager of the hotel, he was exceptional. Thank you for everything Domanick.

This building in the picture is the entire guesthouse! The room is clean, small. The bathroom is small! The place is in the middle of nowhere. But, it was a clean roof over our heads, an ample breakfast in the morning, and off we went.

We stayed in this guesthouse at the end of May. Our group was the only 5 guests in the place for that night. We were warmly greeted and our host showed us around and explained how to get to the hidden natural pool. (This is the best place to stay to visit the pool.) The guesthouse was very clean, with...

We enjoyed our time in this little hotel. It has only 6 cosy rooms, they are not big but they are ensuite and have great views to the landscape outside. It looks recently renovated, in a minimalistic style. It looks clean and modern. It is very handy only 5 minutes drive to Skogarfoss and Seijalandfoss, right in the middle of... More

This is a small hotel (roughly 6 double bed rooms), plenty of parking, relatively rustic and basic. The first issue you may have to deal with is finding the place. We had the address as Lambafell, Hvolsvollur, Iceland. So, we went to Hvolsvollur and asked around about where this might be. None of the local establishments knew about it. We... More
