This was one of our favorite places in Iceland. We had spent 2 great nights at the Ytri-Vik cabins about 10 minutes south of the Skjaldarvik Guest House, but they could not accommodate us for a third night. So we stayed here and it was fabulous. We arrived late (after midnight) and they left the key with a nice note... More

We stayed at Skjaldarvik Guest House for 2 nights and it was wonderful. The receptionist gave us a tour as we checked in and made us feel at home right from the start. The rooms were great with very comfortable beds, clean facilities, and a great breakfast that was included. I can't recommend it enough.

It was definitely adorable. Homemade local craft goods to buy lined the halls, the decor was a shabby chic type look that was clean and cute. Nice lounge area with different conversation seating areas. When we tried to sleep, though....oh my. We could hear conversations in the other rooms- and they were not being loud. The doors were loud too-... More

Our family really enjoyed our stay at this guest house. Our room was a little small, but airy and bright with a great view of the fjord. Our children (ages 5 and 7) did the 'Horse Lesson' one morning, which was a perfect introduction to Icelandic horses for little kids who aren't ready for a proper riding tour. The common... More

The moment you enter the guesthouse, it feels warm, friendly and welcoming. From the bathrobes in your room to the fully equipped bathrooms to the breakfast and the take yourself bar in the living room. Having a shared bathroom means not needing to share it with your roommates, because there was always a free one and it felt like a... More

Although it is not near city centre, we enjoy very much our two night stays at this place. The room is clean with decent space. Share bathrooms are not a problem since there are plenty of them. Check in was smooth and informative. Breakfast has good variety. Dinner was superb! We did try horse riding next door which was very... More

Clean room, nice bright airy room, bathrooms are shared but you have a private sink in the room. Bathrooms are clean and appropriate, linens and towels provided. Breakfast is filling, with deli meats and cheeses. Dinner has been the best I have had in YEARS (highly recommend the lobster!) The horseback riding has been the most wonderful experience we have...
