We stayed here in June 2011 for 3 nights and had a room in the main guesthouse. The guesthouse was lovely and the room was adequate, if a bit small for 2 adults and a baby. The guesthouse supplied a portable crib for us to use, which was nice. The shared bathrooms were sparkling clean and not crowded at all. The room was a bit warm and stuffy, but it was only as we were packing up to leave that we realized we could have opened up the windows!
The hot tub was lovely and spa-like with the shower/changing rooms right there, my only complaint was that the hot tub was only open until 8pm or something like that. It would have been nice to relax after dinner in the hot tub.
The included breakfast was great! We also ate dinner there one night and it was the BEST lamb I have ever had anywhere in the world. Yes, you have to tell them ahead of time that you are coming for dinner, and yes, there's only one choice of menu item, but who cares? Go elsewhere for dinner if you don't like the situation!
The location of the guesthouse is incredible, Hof is only 20 minutes from Skaftafell National Park and about 30 minutes from Jokulsarlon. The little 'village' (it's really only a cluster of buildings) is beautiful too, situated right at the bottom of the cliffs and featuring a turf-roofed church with sheep grazing nearby and views of the sea. Accomodations near the park were few, so this place is an incredible find. This was the most expensive place that we stayed during our entire trip to Iceland, but it's better than staying in a boring chain hotel which was our other option if we wanted to be close to the park.
We loved the location, the food, the hot tub, and the cleanliness of Frost & Fire.
