We started our 9 day trip to Iceland by staying at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse, and we could not have made a better decision. The accommodations are lovely, and the hosts (Gudrun and Valur) were so nice and helpful, without being obtrusive. We arrived from Boston very, very early in the morning, and Gudrun nicely met us at the door, having risen... More

Gudrun is the loveliest lady who runs the Guesthouse. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Even though my review is 4 months late, the stay has stuck with me to come back and make mention as to how lovely it is. The bed was comfortable, the views amazing, even caught a bit of the northern lights right outside the... More

Brilliant place to visit. Stayed two nights for the Golden Circle. Perfectly located for this. Gudrun and Valur were very welcoming and spent lots of time giving us tips for sight seeing and eating. We hadn't planned a route or sights for this part of our holiday however Gudrun gave us a complete itinerary for the day! We felt very... More

This quaint guesthouse was absolutely lovely. We stayed for one night during a road trip around the south of Iceland. Our room was perfect and, though every room was full during our stay, the house was still very peaceful. The owner is a wonderful baker; at check in, we had a delicious almond cake and in the morning, there was... More

This was the first place we stayed on our 6 night trip to Iceland. Although we only stayed for 2 nights, the first impression they gave us of Icelandic people, food and way of life made our holiday all the more special. The stay was made very personal and the hospitality is the best we have ever received from a... More

Our family, with two teenagers had a wonderful stay at Minna-Mosfell. Our charming rooms were clean and very comfortable. The guest house is close to Reykjavik and easy to find.

We stayed here for just one night at the end of our stay, although would have liked to stay longer. The property is quite isolated but easy to find and only 20 mins drive into Reykjavik, giving you the best of both worlds.

We would give Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse 6 or 7 stars if we could. This comfortable B&B is on a farm a short distance outside Reykyavik, and is a great base from which to explore SW Iceland.
