New rooms are noisy because of lack of sound proofing between following rooms. Very bas speed of wifi the evening. Breakfast standard Notting new to discover. Then good place to sleep but nothing really interesting. Moreover it is very far from the departure of trip of skaftafel.

Pleasant room, comfortable bed and good location. Pump action soap seems to be pretty standard around Iceland so we didn't mind it. It was cold and wet so a walk up to reception for hot drinks was a pain, a kettle in the room is always appreciated. Breakfast, while not fabulous, was perfectly reasonable with everything you could need.

Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Good bedside lighting and plenty of electrical outlets. The units - part of a quite new single floor motel-like building - each had outside entry with parking in front of each door. Breakfast was ample to start the day. We would have appreciated a kettle, cups and coffee supplies in the room. That... More

I think this hotel is over priced for the standard they seem to be setting for themselves. Whilst it is clean and comfortable the only toiletry provided was pump action hand soap. We had to ask for hot water to make coffee and were given a kettle for the room but no coffee, the television was not working at all... More

Dear Lydia. Thank you for your review. I would like to mention few things from your text. - Your husband asked me hot water and I handed to him a kettle to boil it in your room. I do not remember him talking about coffee, I would have made new coffee if he had asked. I thought he wanted water... More

This us one of the guesthouses that had really clean and spacious rooms. The room was really spacious for 3 of us and had a front patio if you want to go for cigarette. Breakfast was basic and simple which almost met the need. Another good thing about this place is that its close to hofn.

We stayed a night in one of the cabins which was warm and comfortable. It is in a beautiful location down a lane off the main road. The restaurant serves good food - delicious cod cooked with butter and herbs. The resident dog is happy for you to throw stones for him to chase!

Views were great of the glaciers. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent supper. Great location to explore from. Close to Hofn and the main highway and yet very quiet. Nice staff and reasonably priced.

We stayed here for one night and found our cabin absolutely adorable. Very clean, comfortable, and modern. The view from our cabin was quite nice as well. The owner was very nice and helpful while giving us directions. Breakfast was good, simple, and traditional. However, there are separate sections for people who want complete and utter quiet and we were... More

We were touring the southern part of Iceland and I booked a triple room. The room had shared facilities, and was really cozy and perfect for what we needed. Sadly since we visited in October, the main restaurant was closed. The host let us stay in the restaurant and let us play cards and drink until we were ready to... More

Clean room, good and free wifi, parking right in front of the room (little cottage), rich and fresh breakfast, very calm, friendly people - you'll feel like spending a night at good friends. Would come again.
