We stayed one night and then liked it so much booked and stayed later on our return journey. It was great value. The staff were very friendly, the room large enough with all mod cons we required, evening meals delicious, self catering kitchen or restaurant dining room at other end of corridor, multiple good quality toys in the communal lounge area, and a fantastic view looking out over the plain towards the sea and a large rock outcrop.
We paid 14 000kr for an ensuite room with breakfasts in Sept ie just out of tourist season.
The guesthouse is situated on a farm just off the main highway 1 between Vik and Skogass, closer to Skogass I think. The location is great if you are doing a self drive tour of the south coast of Iceland as we did for six days Rek to Hofn. All guests arrived by car. There is a 1 km gravel road between the main highway and the guesthouse but it is flat and there is basically no other traffic so drivers can go at speed they are comfortable with. The view out the bedroom and loungeroom windows was fantastic.
The room had all that we required, including desk, space, lamps, heating, very comfy big bed and block out blinds for the windows. The bathroom was very modern. The room decor was a bit old for my style but I wouldnt not stay there because of a dark green bedspread. The friendliness and extra facilities outway this.
The staff were great and answered our many questions. We chatted for quite some time on both stays. There is free wifi throughout, and a desktop computer in the front foyer for guests to use if you dont have own device.
The evening meals were delicious, with produce coming straight from the farm and surrounds. On our first stay we checked in late and ordered late, and the onlly food option was soup iwth bread. The Lobster Soup was the best I have tasted in my life, it was fantastic. Also great value at 900kr. We were also able to have seconds at no extra cost if we wanted. The meal on the second night was a choice between fish or lamb and both meals were great. The staff were so friendly with our toddler and kind to him when he spilt a glass of water. They also supplied him with some plastic bowls with kid friendly motifs. Breakfast was great with very 'fresh' and typical Icelandic breakfast foods.
The guesthouse was incredibly quiet (although this would be dependent on who the other guests were at the time). The communal lounge was very nice place to chat with other guests. It was also decked out at one end with some fantastic toys our four year old had a great time playing with. The toys included a toy kitchen with foods and utensils, a farm set, puzzles, blocks and a huge box of tractors. There was a kitchen where guests can prepare there own meals if they wished.
The staff were lovely, genuine people.
We had a load of laundry done while there and it was done well.
Rooms on the side looking out over the plain are ensuite and larger. Some rooms on the hill side of...
