“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We had a great time at the Hofsstadir Guesthouse. The owner, Toti, is extremely friendly and a wonderful chef as well (you must eat dinner at his restaurant which is located on the property, one of the best meals we had in Iceland). We stayed in one of the small cabins that has an amazing scenic view and they must have been brand new as everything was super clean and spotless. I would highly recommend staying here and was one of the better guesthouses we stayed at during our time in Iceland.

What a delightful experience! You couldn’t be closer to nature without losing the heating and the indoor plumbing. The Guesthouse is family run, felt like it, and you couldn’t find nicer folks on this planet running the place. The owner tells family stories during dinner. They open this new wing with about half dozen rooms, or more like semi detached small townhouses that are so home like you feel like you are staying at your best friend’s house rather than a hotel room. Loved every minute of it! Hated to leave. I would make a point of passing through the neighbourhood again just to stay there one more time.

This was by far one of my favorite stops on our 10 day trip around Iceland. The staff was unbelievably helpful friendly. This small cabin like guesthouses are in a beautiful valley that looks out toward the ocean. It is a must stop for anyone traveling the around the north side of Iceland.

We had a wonderful stay in a cosy room with moutain view. The room is clean and well maintained. Wifi reception quite weak in our room. Typical Icelandic breakfast served. Everything is good and the owners are very friendly and helpful.

Staff very friendly and very helpful. Chef told stories after dinner.
Dinner good but over priced. Breakfast very good.
Room - very very pokey - could not open out the suitcase on the floor.
???Sound proofing - I could hear everyword from the room next door.
Not very well sign posted when arriving in the dark. Wifi non existent in our room.
Shower - did not like to have to keep pressing the button to get water - but I think this is in keeping with their environmental attitude.

Very isolated but warm and welcoming, the room was especially cosy and extremely comfortable beds and environment. Would help to be better signposted. Breakfast typically Icelandic, and lots of home made produce, set me up for the day,.

The new rooms were perfect with a fabulous view to the fjord. The bathroom with the shower was excellent. The restaurant menu was varied and tasty. Great choice at the breakfast table.
Friendly service.
We would go back there.
