Disclaimer: we didn't actually make it to Steig Guesthouse because we were completely snowed in on the road. But I wanted to write a kind review because the staff were nice enough not to charge us for the room, only the booking fee, and were so concerned for us. Very sweet and I will try to stay again...maybe in summer.

Friendly and usefull staff. Huge guesthouse (20 rooms) but easy to use the shared kitchen and shared bathroom. We had a room (#19 or #20) right next to the bathroom and close to the kitchen + living-room and it wasn't noisy. Very good breakfast with various choice, they even bake some pastries ! Don't forget to take your ashes'bag as... More

By the time we got to Guesthouse Steig we were a little chagrined by the high prices in Iceland. VERY high, actually. Guesthouse Steig kind of brought us back to earth: we had a very pleasant stay (we were made welcome and at home immediately and our room was immediately upgraded as a free courtesy). I thought we got good... More

The guesthouse is simple and basic, but clean and comfortable. They are nice and helpful, and will give you tips on where to go on your trips. There are 3 adorable dogs you can play with. The place is quiet and accommodating of late check-in. I am docking a star because breakfast was low quality - we stayed there 3... More

This was our first stop on our Ring Road trip, and we arrived past 9 PM, after exploring the Golden Circle all day. When we inquired about any open restaurants nearby. the owner called for us to see if anything was open, and after it was not, they graciously cooked some soup for us even though their own kitchen was...

We didn't book at Guesthouse Steig, we actually booked at the Farmhouse Guesthouse about 2km further up the road. There was a problem and our room was doubled booked. The guy from the Farmhouse took us to Steig and explain the situation (I think he did my Icelandic is very patchy) and the nice lady at the front desk sorted... More

We stayed for 1 night in the guesthouse Steig on the GAdventures tour "The Best of Iceland". There is no other properties around this guesthouse, but the place is stunning. I was there in July. It was green. The glacier is seen from the guesthouse, and there is a volcano under that glacier, which blocked all air traffic in Europe... More

Nice hotel with very friendly owner and staff. My daughter stayed for one night in spacious room, two twins, and enjoyed a good simple dinner and nice breakfast in morning. Farmhouse location, quaint, although a touch pricey. Their friendliness made up for it and made us feel very welcome.

We stayed at Guesthouse Steig for one night on our drive around Iceland. The guesthouse is a little ways past Vik. We chose to stay out of town for a cool experience and because there didn't seem to be any places that interested us in Vik. We had a great stay. The guesthouse is on a farm kind of at... More
