This facility has a guest house and cabins. The owner was very welcoming. We had a great dinner and then she joined us to chat about the area. We were the only people there for the night. The surroundings are nice for walks. It is very near the Burstafell Museum which has a great example of turf houses. Breakfast was available for purchase but we did not.
Loved our stay on this beautiful sheep farm. The rooms are standard bunk house rooms, but are clean and quiet. The farm's dining room makes farm-to-table fresh meals. The lamb meatballs were outstanding! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Gisilina was a great host. We enjoyed visiting with her. Walking the hillside above the river is a wonderful way to spend the evening after a delicious meal. Wi-Fi was very weak/basically non-existent, but the farm is in the middle of nowhere in a valley, so it is understandable. The farm is a 35 minute drive outside of Vopnafjodur. If you are low on gas (meaning at 1/2 tank or lower), refuel in the town before proceeding to the farm. The road to the farm weaves along a gravel road going down into the valley towards the river.

As we drove up to the cabins and were greeted by the hostess's eager sheep dog. We were a group of four, and the cabin accommodated us well. There was a good sized table, where we made breakfast of toast and tea. The beds had a choice of a thin blanket and a thicker one for our sleeping comfort. Most importantly for modern travelers the WiFi worked well. The owners were very nice and catered to our curiosity of sheep. On the morning that we left, we got to play with some of their baby sheep. As city slickers, that totally made our day!
We only stay for one night, in the beginning, we were kind regret booked this cabin, it's kind of far, but it turn out, it was our best night stay for the week in Iceland. The room is clean, bed is comfortable, our first night slept through the whole night, without wake up in the middle of the night. it's beautiful surroundings. It feel so relax here. The host very kind let us to visit the farm, let us hold the 2days old baby lam, and show us around the whole stable. One thing to keep in mind. It's full equipped kitchen, but no any cooking oil and seasoning, Wifi is not very strong.
I can not help but sit down and write about my experience to stay and eat at Sireksstadir, I was a week trip with a Chinese group and received in most parts of mediocre service, but at this point I got a top class service, very good dinner, clean and a bed and breakfast and all service very good, and prices very competitive, thanks.
