This farm guesthouse was our best accommodation experience in a 17 day trip to Iceland. The guest accommodation has a separate entrance. The upstairs bedrooms have views of the lush agricultural valley. As a visitor who likes to self cater, the small well equipped kitchen was perfect. A bonus was the small separate sitting room. Making guests feel welcome is... More

We stayed at Ytra Laugaland in August of 2013 and I feel bad about waiting so long to write this review! My husband and I loved staying here, meeting Vilborg, and enjoying this cozy farmhouse in a beautiful valley outside Akureyri. The beds were super comfortable with warm down duvets, breakfast was delicious (with locally made blueberry jam), the bathroom... More

We loved this place just outside Akureyri. The place is in a lovely icelandic house with a great view on the valley, the room were big and the bathroom was clean. This house has like 3 guestrooms, so it's basically like being alone. The breakfast was one of the best breakfast I had in Iceland: the owner made cakes for... More

Very Peaceful place to stay in. We had asked for a double bed - in spite of the entire B&B being empty we were given a room on a twin sharing basis. Other than that our stay was brilliant. The rooms were nicely done - the shared bathroom was fully equipped. Sleep quality was five star and breakfast filling. Must... More

staying at a farm 10 km west of Akureyri with friendly hosts was one of the highlights of my Icelandic trip. the house was clean and light. Breakfast delicious and fresh. Bathrooms and shower are shared, but they are extremely clean and I never had to wait. In fact, that accounts for rates being extremely reasonable. For all the money... More

Staying here felt like spending the night at grandma's house: cozy rooms, personal service, breakfast in the morning. Though the farmhouse is located in a pastoral area full of rolling hills and horses, it's only a 10 minute drive south of Akureyri and its numerous shops and restaurants. The price of a night's stay here is quite a bargain. The... More

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing stay at Ytra Laugaland. I'm so thankful I discovered it as it really is a hidden gem! We felt so at home- it truly brought me back to my childhood when I used to stay with my grandmother. Vilborg (the owner/hostess) is just the sweetest lady and and the property is absolutely...

We had a wonderful stay at Ytra Laugaland. Everything -- the spacious and comfortable room in a cozy and charming house, delicious breakfast, a wonderful hostess, and a convenient and beautiful location -- is excellent about this place, and at a very reasonable price (especially compared to other lodging in Akureyri) at that. I highly recommend this if you're in... More

We enjoyed our stay here, helped by a very welcoming hostess and hostess. The location is convenient for Akureyri whilst being out in the surrounding countryside. Breakfasts were of a high standard with plenty of variety. The room was a good size and we access to a communal living room and kitchen (which we had to ourselves on our stay).... More

It's not good that a such cozy place to stay is so "hided": it's hard to find it on the internet ant even from the road 829, where only mark "hotel" is. I have found it under the name "Vilborg guesthouse", but here it is known as "Ytra Laugaland". Hmm... It is perfect place to stay: cozy house and its... More
