Quick check-in, very welcoming staff and great breakfast. Comfortable beds and rooms are very spacious. The restaurant has many options if you arrive late in the evening, very easy access from the road. It was a great experience.

The rooms are very spacious and clean in modern design. They have a good heating and large glass windows. The breakfast is very good. The only thing that could be improved is the water pressure on the shower. Besides that a great place to stay!

Recently stayed at this hotel. Very nice place to stay in the southern Iceland area. Rooms are cozy, comfortable. Our room was equipped with a queen size (or two small beds). There is a small television with netflix. There is a free breakfast as well which is cold meats, toasts, etc. There was no face clothes for whatever reasons. Highly recommended for the cheap price.

Just a short drive outside of Höfn, which was great. It was very isolated and not really near any hustle and bustle which is right up my alley and made for a very quiet night and great sleep. The rooms were good (apparently I forgot to take a picture of the main sleeping area, whoops!), and the staff were excellent. Breakfast was fantastic as well. Would stay here again for sure. Bonus points for their shower - it had a small lip/curb so that the floor didn't get completely soaked like some other hotels I'd stayed at! :D

There was fungus in the bathrooms and on the window frames. Unhygenic. Paint is peeling of on the outside. Investment in maintenance is long due. A dismal building.. The food was good. But wouldnt recommend any one to stay here. The price is for a drie star hotel but the quality is not worth one star.

We stayed for one night at the old building at this guesthouse. We had a really bad experience... One of the rooms had the TV removed and in the other it didn't work. We could hear what was going on on the other room like if we were in there... The power sockets were poorly placed and the curtains didn't cover the light coming form outside. And the restaurant... We payed almost 4000 ISK for each Lobster tail sandwiches. The sandwiches were really a ripoff, small and badly prepared, at the same price we payed for some great meals in top notch restaurants. I discourage anyone to go to this Guesthouse !

We stayed only one night at Lilja but wish we were there longer. The glacier view room was superb. Lovely spread for breakfast. I was just disappointed we we had to rush to catch the flight as we couldn’t enjoy the day in the hotel fully.

The Lilja Guesthouse is a very basic property with a lovely view of the glacier. The room was very clean but with no frills. Everything was on a timer so if you weren't fast enough you were left in the dark. There was no fridge in the room or shampoo in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable (although the pillows were very flat) and we had good sleep as it was very quiet. The breakfast was a very minimal buffet with a la carte options cooked to order. We found the staff to be helpful and pleasant.

The views from this guesthouse are second only to the friendliness of the folks running it. The buffet breakfast was lovely and was supplemented by an a la carte menu the days that we stayed. I have celiac and found plenty of GF items. We also had the pleasure of eating at the restaurant on the property and the food was wonderful. The rooms were spacious, warm and bright. The blackout curtains in the window kept all of the morning light from filtering through, so I can imagine that sleeping here in the Summer months would not be a hardship. All in all a lovely stay, a lovely room, lovely views and lovely folks taking great care of their guests.
