Our host was very helpful and kind. She had rice cakes to accommodate my gluten free dietary restrictions which was a welcome surprise since there were several homemade jams at breakfast I was dying to try. The rooms are comfortable with excellent showers and even more amazing views of the ocean, pastures, glacier and mountains. The horses will come right... More

I have a hard time paying close to $200 when you're getting what is essentially a dorm room that shares a bathroom. The room was clean, but austere with a view of the parking lot. Shared bathroom had shower with plenty of hot water but every time someone showers, the entire bathroom floor gets wet. Breakfast about average for what... More

This mini-motel is located 18 minutes west of Vik, amongst the sheep farms. Nice newish units. No TV in room, but there's a large common TV. Breakfast is OK, typical for Iceland. I would not stay here again, just because it is so isolated.

It's located near Vik and was a convenient place for us to stay to explore some of the south sights. Our room was clean and part of the main building. My only complaint was that we could hear some guys talking at 11:00pm out in the sitting area, right next to our room. We had to get up early in... More

The place is very nice and not to far from Vik. You can walk along to meet the horses and sheep. The breakfast includes a little bit od everything (waffles too). We run out of soap while taking the shower, I think they should check it up before giving the room to guests.

Comfortable rooms but management was cold and unhelpful. Not family-friendly; we have a four-year-old and when we asked to eat our take-out dinner at the guesthouse, they sent us from dining room to living room before making us eat outside (in the cold). Setting itself is quite pretty but overall, it's overpriced. 15 km to Vik town.

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
