NOTE: Mine is a vote aimed only at the good will of the two retired owners of the structure. A pure and simple judgment in the services offered certainly does not reach sufficienty. Very naive accomodation. The house of the owners with the three single rooms of the daughters ( who are now adults no longer live with their parents), user as guest rooms. Shared bathroom for three double rooms. The rooms are very small, without privacy: at the top there is and opening that makes everything that is said in one room is heard in the others !! Breakfast under the essential, expecially for the quantity. Excessive price for what is offered (160 euros for a night in two people). We are not really there.

Great place in the middle of nowhere to catch a good nights sleep and enjoy a delicious breakfast. Reasonably priced, USD $85 for two with sleeping bags. Close to Dettifoss Waterfalls and onward to Lake Myvatta Lake area. Nice folks who operate. Can have choice of older residence or newer facilities.

Tell the truth we didn´t sleep here. We missed our prepayed one -day stay because my son falled ill and we had to stay in previous apartement one day longer. In spite of the fact we tryed to accomodate here next day. Unfortunately the hotel was full but the lady was very friendly and helpful and offered us to stay in her old house (we had our own sleeping bags). It was for about 9p.m. and we were hungry - she recommended us to ask for dinner in neighboring hotel. So we had dinner, excellent accomodation and above that she returned us the payment for our missed stay. It is an extraordinary place with extraordinary kind and friendy people. Our dear madam, thank you!

Very nice room. It was clean and appeared to be brand new. It's in the middle of no where which for us was a plus. It's on the east road leading to Dettifoss. We got a good night sleep on comfortable beds. The only things that kept us from giving it 5 stars are: 1. It's small. Really small. Like we can't fit our luggage in there small. I know Europe has smaller rooms, but even by European standards these rooms were small. 2. The check in is 6km aware from the hotel where we stayed. It was a bit confusing. We go to one place to check in and then have to get back in and drive to the spot you were just at to get your room.

Hello there, from the description of your location you have been staying at Hólssel which is not part of Grimsstadir Guesthouse. It is Grimstunga Guesthouse that you have been staying at. Two different accomodations close to each other. Looks like you have put your review on wrong guesthouse. sincerely, Arnar M (Grimsstadir Guesthouse)

We enjoyed our stay at this special location very much! The host went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. The accommodation was great, as the breakfast. The farm is located close to Detifoss and perfect to stay there the night before exploring the area. Will definitely come back when in the area
