“Really comfortable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Good location in the middle of Skagafjördur, in a valley next to a big river. Beautiful accommodation in brown and dark green prefabricated trusses with cable tv. Nice breakfast with home-made products in a lovely room.

We stayed here one night in the beginning of August 2013. Even though the sun never really set, there were some absolutely beautiful sunsets that made the skies orange and pink, which was made even more pronounced by the reflections of the colors off the water/fjord right next to the guesthouse. The guesthouse had beautiful views, but you definitely want to ask to have a view that overlooks the fjord especially if you are staying for more than one night. They had a nice complimentary breakfast. The room had a bathroom, tv, and comfortable beds. They also have a small "patio" with a small table with chairs. We had a double bed room, it was a little small, but not bad! Overall it was a very nice place to stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the fjord!!

We were a group of 3 families (2 triple and 1 dbl). The location not too far from F35 exit and route 1. Nice views from geust house. Triple rooms were large . Dbl room was a bit small. Beds very comfortable.
The restaurant was great (food and atmosphere).We all enjoyed dinner very much which wasn't cheap but worth the price. Breakfast was great as well with localy made jams and more.

This quiet B&B in the northern countryside is located not far from Glaumbaer's turf houses attraction.

It's a private farm. Our double room with bathroom had a big and comfortable bed and was very clean, probably recently renovated. It offered a nice view of the surroundings.

The owners were extremely nice and helped us to choose the best road to reach Dalvik (the one on the coast, by the way).

The breakfast was abundant and included many different meals to choose from. The restaurant at the nearby sister property Hofsstadir Guesthouse, easily reached by foot, also served quite good food.

The WiFi Internet connection didn't work from our room, but this was only a minor problem for us.

Taking into account the private bathroom, the price was in line with other similar accommodations in the area. Recommended for one night while traveling from the West Fjords to the Northeast.

Lovely rooms, individual timber chalets, with beautiful, distant views. Simply, yet stylishly furnished. Restaurant was great too. Attention to detail in every aspect of the accommodation and service. We too only stayed one night as part of a tour but would happily have stayed longer to explore the area and enjoy this guesthouse.

Following a 2-week trip in Iceland: one of the best places we stayed and eaten. This is a place out of this world. Simple but comfortable accommodation, spectacular view, great hospitality, and good restaurant, both for food and service. A moment to remember. Congratulations to the owners.

Room Tip: Seems to me that all rooms are good.
