We booked last minute during a time that many locations wouldn't let us book but Lamb Inn was incredibly accommodating. Johannes was an amazing host and made sure we felt comfortable and made this the best place we stayed our whole trip in Iceland!

Because we were the only ones in the entire Inn we didn't expect them to fire up their kitchen we were already so thankful he let us stay there. But Johannes and his wife instead made us breakfast at their home (down the hill from the inn about a 1 minute walk) every morning we were there.

I was amazed at the hospitality and we got to learn more about the country and experience local food including Skyr in an Icelandic home. We had fun visiting with his Sheep on our morning walks to his home and had company in their beautiful dog.

The rooms were comfortable for my husband and I and the overall vibe and feel of the Inn was peaceful and comfortable. We even got to play the piano in the hallway! The Lamb Inn is also only 4 minutes away from the main city and very close to the slopes as well!

Next time we are in Akureyri we will certainly come here. And recommend this place to all who want to have a wonderful experience!

On our circuit of Iceland’s ring road, we stayed here for one night, as it was convenient for Akureyrie and an easy drive to Husavik.
There’s no TV or coffee making facilities in the room but it’s great value for money and in a lovely rural spot with great views, only a ten minute drive into town.
The following morning we had to be in Husavik by 9:15, so wanted to leave by 8:00. We were told that breakfast isn’t served until 8:00 but, because of our schedule, they were so helpful in preparing our breakfast a bit earlier so we could get away on time. It was no trouble for them.
We hoped to dine at Fimbul (the restaurant on the same site), but were unable to as they had a large group booking.
I’d definitely recommend this lovely place, if you’re exploring the country.

We stayed one night here-room was clean with plenty of space. Unfortunately we had to leave before breakfast was we had an excursion in Husavik which was disappointing. My only frustration was that our room was right beside the outside smoking area. Thankfully we were not bothered by the smoke smell, but the people chatting outside did disturb us as we got to bed. It would be great if the owners could relocate the smoking area away from rooms.
It is a pretty quick trip in to Akureyri if you need to go out for dinner while staying there. Area is quiet and very pretty.

It has a very high rating so you expect much... but only the view was 4 or 5 star. The rooms are made with a very low buget, we could hear every footstep and word that people say in the room above us. Kids couldnt sleep before 11pm because of the noise. Beds where also cheap so we didnt sleep well. Breakfast was ok but nothing special options where very limited. Restaurant was closed. Rating wasnt according our expirience, we had hotels with less rating that where much better in iceland.

We stayed for one night and had dinner at the restaurant. The accommodations were okay, but we would definitely recommend finding another place for dinner. The website made the restaurant sounds so terrific that we were really looking forward to it (locally sourced foods, award winning lamb dishes) especially since we had enjoyed so many terrific meals in Iceland already. Unfortunately, the award winning lamb dish looked like a cafeteria meal and the peas tasted like they came out of a can. The arctic char was better and was a decent portion. Despite the mediocre food, the prices were similar to those at many of the other finer restaurants we ate at which truly had chef quality meals with interesting arrangements and taste combinations. The waitstaff seemed very disinterested as well. We ordered a bottle of "Italian Red Wine" and received two glasses of wine. When I mentioned it, they brought out a half bottle of a Chilean Cabernet and put it on the table. Not that we are fussy, but the service was just pretty bad for a restaurant of this price range. I don't think that I had another meal in Iceland that I didn't enjoy fully in our entire 10 day stay, but this restaurant is one to avoid unless you don't have another option.

Stayed on night. Cozy place just outside of town. Farm stay. They leave keys at desk. Nice room. Clean and quiet. Did not eat dinner but breakfast was the standard and fine. They have a hot tub which was nice. Big hallway with a sitting area. No TV but good Wi-Fi. Staff that was working in kitchen was helpful since there was no one at front desk. Nice stay.

10 minutes away from Akureyri you find this inn in the country side. The rooms are dated but large and clean enough. There is also a hot tub and you can have nice views of The Valley. Rooms have no TV or phone.
Otherwise pretty average hotel. Reception is not always occupied, when we had a problem with the flush toilet we had to call them.

The Inn needs a renovation, it looks like they tried to do a DIY in the room but failed. We unfortunately were booked here through our tour operator but will inform him that this is not the place to put people until they do proper updates. The mattress was horrible. The Inn is about 10 minutes from the center. This city is so charming with all the places available to choose from if you have a choice I would choose another

We (family of three) stayed two nights, ate two trully excellent dinners, the best in many a trip. Breakast was also good. Exceptional warm hospitality, cozy place, hot tub, beautiful setting. Aurora and Matt (who I think took the place over just before Covid) are doing a good thing here.

This is the most charming B&B we have stayed at in a long time. The owner was most gracious and hosted us for a dinner our first night with another group staying at the inn. It was a wonderful dinner of leg of lamb with veggies and cream cake for dessert. Breakfasts were hearty and the hot tub is amazing with it's own hot spring constantly filling the tub. The inn is on a working sheep farm and in the country with all the charm of farm life. The staff is very accommodating and the experience was very laid back.
The amenities themselves were fine, the double beds were comfortable but the showers could use an exhaust fan.
We were able to see the Northern Lights from the parking lot making it a fantastic part of the trip. The inn is also very close to the town, airport and Lake My'vatn. It was a perfect home base for us to experience Northern Iceland.
