We stayed one night in obe ofthe two cottages. They were nice with three bedrooms and a room with a little kitchen, a sofa and a table. Everything was correct and we spend a good day. The house is neat the sea and at the very far you can guess Reynisfjara, so the place was like a dream.

We spent a night in this guesthouse while visiting the region and had an enjoyable stay. Our room (number 12) was spacious and offered all comfort one can expect (TV, wi-fi, shower...). We had dinner there and had a limited choice of dishes (pork or fish) but it was good. Breakfast is fine with freshly made waffles available. All in... More

It is a decent property but definitely overpriced. Do not expect the amenities you would normally get when you pay over $300 for a night. The view is cool but in Iceland you almost expect that. I like the keeping shoes at the door policy from cleanliness perspective but becomes a hassle when you are in and out. Our room... More

Convenient location in a beautiful setting, just 1 km of gravel road away from the ring road. The owner and family actually live in the place, and you can tell that it is more than just business - they do go out of their way to make their guest feel welcome. The rooms are located in a separate wing. If... More

We liked this quaint little guesthouse. Clean, modern and looked out over the fields and ocean. A mountain on one side and fields on the other. Excellent breakfast and when we arrived later than we had planned they still served us an excellent dinner. Maybe a bit pricey but it was good.

I wasn't impressed. Tiny rooms, not very clean and miles from the nearest village. With a little bit more care it could be a good place and I think they need to go back to basics. Their food hygiene needs some attention too. I wish I had stayed in a hostel or hired (or even bought) a tent instead of... More

We book a room for one night here. We were the first to arrive from other guests who also booked a room for the night here so we decided to take a shower before the others arrive. It was a very good idea since the shared bathroom were busy since this place have a lot of rooms but lack bathrooms.... More

Goodish, badish. That's how my daughter sometimes described her day at school when she was younger and that's the best way to describe this place. We made our reservations last February when we knew we wanted to be in Vik for two days and discovered that there weren't a ton of options in this area and the hotels were all... More

We were very skeptical driving up to the guesthouse. But boy were we very surprised when the owner showed us our rooms. They were beautiful and very comforting! Best beds we've slept in all trip. On top of that, we had gotten a parking ticket the day before in Reykjavik which she took a ton of time out of her... More
