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

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

Two family members and I stayed here during a 10-day trip to Iceland as we drove the Ring Road. The inn and its new owner, Helga, are delightful. The B&B is so cute, beautifully-decorated, and immaculately clean. Helga greeted us warmly at the door, helped us with a parking place, and showed us around. We had the entire first floor to ourselves, so the shared bathroom was private. The lodging is in impeccable condition, with spotless furnishings and linens. The room was large enough for a king and twin beds plus a small dining table, very clean, and the beds were quite comfortable. Although the B&B is located in a village, the room was quiet and we all slept very soundly. The bathroom was spotless, with the most delightful room fragrance diffuser, a combination of lavender and patchouli. The towels were thick and absorbent, and the shower had plenty of hot water with good pressure. Helga showed us where to find coffee and tea, called a local restaurant for a dinner reservation for us, and then pointed out some of the other interesting sights in Siglufjordur. We set out to explore the village and were very impressed with the Frida Chocolate Shop, the Herring Era Museum, and Harbour House restaurant (separate reviews.) After driving around most of this stunning country for 10 days, the tiny village of Siglufjordur won our hearts as the most delightful town we visited.
