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...

This was THE BEST place I stayed while in Iceland, I wish I could have stayed more nights. The rooms kind of have a college dorm room feel about them and the bathrooms are shared. There is a sink in your room and the beds are amazingly comfortable. I didn't want to get out of bed in the morning. The... More

Booked a last minute stay on our trip around the country... We were pleasantly surprised and content with the quality of the guesthouse. Hosts were wonderful, breakfast was the best we had on our whole journey, rooms were clean and spending time in the geothermal hot tub was excellent. Next time we will definitely be back to take it easy... More

Located just a five minute drive from town's center, the guest house is located on a fjord and the property includes stables and trails, a school and two hiking paths. Run by a lovely family who clearly care about their guests comfort, they also employ young people from around the world learning the hospitality industry. Clean, nicely decorated and comfortable....

*Sigh* Where to start? Let's say Skjaldarvik Guest House made us change our plans in Iceland. We were planning on driving around Iceland, but once we arrived to Akureyri, we fell in love. We decided we needed to stay more than one night, and that's what we did. We were there during weekdays and winter, and we were lucky to... More

I said 'sweet' cuz the way the guesthouse decorated was just adorable with lots of handmade accessories, crafts and hearts. My rooms has plenty of space facing the beautiful lake and was just steps away from guests favorited 'outdoor hot bathtub'. The bed was also large, comfy and warm. Guest shared facilities like living room and bathrooms were just great.... More
