There is nothing good to say about this place although the clean room. This place is far from everything, nothing to do i the evenings, no restaurant. In the room was hand soap for showering?!? No electric kettle, no tea or coffee in the room. We didnt like it at all

Clean and comfortable guesthouse. Our hosts were kind enough to give us an upgrade. Great location close to town, were there late in the season so no dinner offered but easy drive into Hofn to find dinner. Breakfast in the morning was very good and we were greeted in the morning by a sweet dog just outside our room. My...

Dear Katie. Thank you for nice words. Your only complaint is about the mattress. Do you remember the number of your room? Best wishes Asmundur Gislasons owner

We stayed in this country guesthouse with very clean, cozy, warm accommodations. Our host was so friendly and offered the best breakfast ever! The presentation was beautiful with unlimited offerings and choices. In addition to the accommodations , Scotty the dog greeted us with a game of throw and chase the stone. He followed you as far as the door...

Very comfortable and convenient, just before you arrive in the town of Hofn. They have horse rides available and a good restaurant for dinner. Not fancy but very good food. And the whole family is there helping out. Charming.

This is a quiet hotel, off the main road. The rooms are basic but spacious and toasty warm. Breakfast is OK and the restaurant probably competes OK against those in the town. Maybe having a jug in the room would be nice but overall no complaints. Oh, and there are nice views of the various glaciers in the distance.

This small Country Lodges Hotel is located in the Icelandic Countryside. Not many rooms are available. The staff was very kind and also the service during dinner and breakfast was very good. The best thing I've appreciated was the location. In fact, some products came directly from the local farms. You can really feel nature in this place. Really Recommended

We booked 2 rooms and were situated next to one another in comfortable, spacious rooms in cabins. We overlooked the horse enclosure in the back, which was lovely. Our meals were quite good. There is horseback riding for people who choose to do that.

We stayed two nights here at the guest house and loved our stay. We were received warmly by the proprietors of Arnanes and they explained everything well. Accommodations are bright and clean -- we really enjoyed the warm wood paneling. The bathroom is spacious with a towel heater to boot! It would be nice if the rooms were a bit...
