I stayed here with my mom during July and it was absolutely lovely. Helga and Dagur are so accommodating and welcoming, and the house is very comfortable, cozy, and clean. Our room had plenty of space, a king sized bed, and the view was astounding (as seen in the photos). The backyard area was also really beautiful and a great place to hangout after a long day of site seeing. The location was also amazing. We were able to walk to everything in town from the Herring House. I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Siglufjordur.

I can say that I would recommend this place to anyone travelling in the north of Iceland. Everything was up to stand, the room was very nice and so was the owner. The location is also very good, just in the center of the town. Thank you so much for the hospitality

Helga & her husband are knowledgeable and delightful. Perfect hosts. Great accommodations. We stayed in a cabin and loved it. We did not cook because eating out was excellent. One comment on getting to Herring House. Come up from Akureyri or stop in by parachute. Rte 76 is less than a safe road. The views of the mountains make you think you’re in Switzerland. The hot tub and outdoor shower are lovely. Bed is comfortable. The bird museum in Olafsfjordur is also excellent.

My partner and I stayed at one of the cottages and we had the BEST experience. The cottage is super cozy, relaxing and located in a great place in town. We enjoyed using the hot tub, which had a great view of the town and the church. Not to mention the beds are ultra comfy which was nice to come back to after a long day. On top of that, Helga is a such a lovely host and was so accommodating! 12/10 experience and highly recommend! Don’t think twice about booking at this guest house!

I must say that staying in The Herring House was nothing more than a magical time! The accommodation is superb at any level, the view, breakfast and the surtoundings are wonderful. The rooms are great and the sense of nature(even if it’s in the the town of Siglufjörður) is everywhere around you along with such amount og quietness, which I loved! And let’s not forget the owners, Helga and Dagur who are amazing! Very helpful regarding most of your needs and questions you have for them :) Very clean and well taken care of renting house which is very close to down town Siglufjörður. I think most of people will love it here! 10/10 from me. Best Regards. John Ingi Matta

We stayed there for one night after a really nice, sunny day in Siglufjörður. The Herring is a lovely guesthouse, nice and clean and really close to the towns central. The bakery is just few minutes away and it's so nice!! They have amazing kleina's and their chocolate snúður is the softest I've had.

Super nice place to stay while visiting the north of Iceland. Location is perfect, can walk to the center in 3 minutes where you find restaurants ( recommend Rauðka for great pizza), stores and other service. The porch has nice sitting and the host will offer you some authentic Icelandic wool sweater to keep you warm while enjoying the amazing view over the town and the fjord. The rooms are cozy and super clean - you have everything you could need for a lovely stay. 10/10
