This place is definitely not worth the money! It's a guesthouse, but they charge you like a 4* Hotel, while facilities are comparable to a 2*Hotel - if we had paid half the price, we would have had lower expectations and would have been fine with what we got. For example, the description on booking.com said “modern furniture”, but furniture... More

First of all, I read some reviews that said the rooms were dirty and cold. Well don't worry, they've just been completely redone, in fact, me and my friends were the first guests to stay there! Needless to say, the rooms were immaculate and very cosy. The decoration in the rooms was quite minimalist and classy. The only negative thing... More

I stayed here with my family back in March and it was a very nice well presented place to stay. The lady that owns the place was very nice and spoke very good English. Breakfast was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. I would be more than happy to stay here again.

Was late at night and we just happened to drive by this place around 8:45pm. Luckily the kitchen was still open. We sat down and ordered fish of the day (Cod) and Artic Char. There were 2 other guests at the time. The host was friendly. Food took a little while to come out, probably because they had to wait... More

Our night at drangshlid was by far the worst on our ten days Iceland trip - the room was dirty and cold. Breakfast was okay - comparable to everywhere else on Iceland. I suggest you skip dinner at the farm restaurant and go to the much nicer nearby Gamla fjosid / Old Cowhouse restaurant.

The rooms are simple (clean/no frills), but the food in their restaurant was very good and the location is both convenient and beautiful--I would say "dramatic" even, with the building nestled right at the bottom of a gorgeous hill. Neighboring farms also have ruins of old turf farm buildings that you can walk to, and which are quite interesting. The... More

I stayed at Farm Holiday Drangshlid for one night in July 2013 while on a driving tour of the south of Iceland. We stayed in an en suite room with 2 twin beds. It was very quiet, clean and comfortable and one of the more spacious rooms we stayed with on our vacation. The staff was very friendly and even... More

Good location beneath Eyjafjallajokull. Older style outhouses with dorm style en suite rooms, warm, clean and tidy. There is the option of self catering in the common area of each house or eating in the restaurant which we did for 2 nights. Food was lovely and the service was attentive. Definitely a good base for exploring nearby skogafoss, geothermal pool... More

The location is the big plus of Drangshlid Guesthouse. The rooms are spacious and clean. But I was missing the "soul" of that place. There were also only 2 single beds. Didn't have dinner there, there is a nice place called "Gamla Fjosid" only a few kilometers away.
