Only 12 km east of Akureyri on the ring road (highway 1), this is a great location for those who don't like to stay in a city. There is a restaurant on site which serves dinner, and breakfast can be arranged also (extra charge.) There are rooms with ensuite, and also rooms with shared bath. There is a common kitchen...

The guesthouse is near Akureyri, which is a lovely small city and It's very near to rt1. The beds were very good and they have a very large common room. Also nice view from the rooms on to the mountains. Perfect place for travelling through the area.

We stayed in one that has several en-suite room. The rooms were simple but spacious, comfortable and very clean. The view from the window is beautiful.... More

Comfortable, though not fancy room but with great view over mountains and for sunsets. Friendly staff. Nice communal facilities that were very clean and spacious. The owners seem keen to improve and expand to make this a pleasant place to stay. Hot tub outside with views, lovely indoor/verandha area with roses growing where you can take a bit to eat.... More
