Three of us spent three weeks in Iceland on the ring road and in the Westfjords. We rented apartments whenever possible for the room, the privacy, and to have access to a kitchen. Lonsleira was one of the best...spacious, well equipped, and full of personality in what we felt was a perfect location. Add a helpful and communicative owner and a great view...book this place while you can.

We stayed in eight different places during our Iceland Ring Road Trip and this was my favourite by far. It was everything I'd hoped for - a beautiful apartment inside and out with lovely views of the lagoon and town. We made a detour from the Ring Road to Seydisfjordur as we've enjoyed the Icelandic drama series 'Trapped' which was partly filmed here. The detour itself was worth it as the road and and out of Seydisfjordur is especially scenic and only takes around half an hour from Egilsstaðir which is a big town on the Ring Road. Lonsleira Apartments are actually four apartments in two large houses on the opposite end of the lagoon from the main town buildings. The two houses are beautifully painted, one mustard yellow and one cobalt blue. We were in apartment 7a which is the left side of the yellow building when facing the lake. We called the owner, Sigurður Gunnarsson, on arrival and he was there within a minute to let us in. He was really nice and friendly. And spoke great English! The apartment had three double bedrooms (two with large beds, one with two single beds) and a very large open plan lounge/kitchen area with loads of windows. It's very light and airy and immaculately decorated with light, very lovely furniture. It had underfloor heating which was very lovely. There are also heaters in the rooms so it was very warm and cosy as it was cold outside when we visited t the end of June. The curtains are lovely fabric but didn't provide any blackout which would have been useful as it's pretty much 24/7 daylight in June. The kitchen was very well-quipped complete with nice wine glasses (cheap ones from Ikea everywhere else we stayed). There was a dishwasher with tablets. There was also a laundry area shared with the other apartments but we didn't need to use that. We walked to the other end of the lagoon (5-10 minutes) in the evening and had a real nice meal in Hotel Aldan (Nordic Restaurant). The walk around the lagoon is really nice - it's such a beautiful, picturesque town with the painted houses and calm, reflective lagoon. I wish we could have stayed longer and that it was easier to get to from the UK to go for a longer stay in Lonsleira Apartments. If you ever find yourself in Seydisfjordur I cannot recommend these apartments more highly.

We made a brief stop here for one night on our road trip around the ring road. We arrived in the dark so couldn’t see any of our surroundings. The owner came to let us in, he built the houses himself! We were in the yellow house and woke up to incredible views from our bed. Spacious and clean with everything you need. Heated bathroom floor. Good WiFi. Incredible location nestled in the mountains. A must visit if you’re driving route 1!

Our first visit to Iceland and our challenge was to complete a road trip right the way round in 7 days in winter! We pre-booked the first 2 nights in Reykjavik (visiting the Blue Lagoon & Golden Circle), then on to Jokulsarlon Lagoon and Diamond Beach, staying in Hofn. After this we moved on to Seydisfjordur where we had pre-booked the beautiful Lonsleira Apartments. Oh my goodness..... From the ring road we drove across snow covered mountains arriving in a little valley where everything was covered in fairy lights. I can honestly say I have never stayed in such a fantastic location. It was magical. Our 'apartment' was a 3 bedroomed house (there were only 2 of us!) fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. The owner met us there as we arrived and showed us how everything worked. He told us the best places to eat and drink in and where we could shop for anything else we needed. We looked out onto a frozen lake and little lights all around. I cannot speak highly enough of the apartment, the location or the helpful owner. I just wish we could have stayed longer. We then moved on further north and stayed in 3 different places but none was as beautiful as this one. And yes, completed our trip in 7 days in mid winter, arriving back in Reykjavik for our flight home.

BEWARE OF THIS --- Lonsleira Apartments Seydisfjordur The worst ever apartment we were stayed in Europe. We booked and fully paid for 2 apartments and didn't received any check in information as promised to provide day before, then I called several times to the host before our journey but all calls was directed to voicemail. When I arrived the apartment, we encountered only 1 apartment was unlocked and all others was locked. 8 of us were forced to stay in 1 apartment, it made us couldn't sleep at all cause of the bed, blanket, towel were only provided for 4 persons. I was wondering why the phone number provided was directed to voicemail and without any reply even I leaved a message. Even called after arrived. At last, I wrote an email to the host complained about our situation but still NO any feedback even a simple apology from them until today. The host was just fully charged and pretending nothing happened. We felt cheated by them. Strongly NO RECOMMEND anyone to stay here and preventing losing the money. Worst ever apartment after traveled for 32 countries in Europe.
