We stayed one night in one of the pods a couple of weeks ago. SERVICE: we arrived very late, at around 2am and the gentleman who I assume was the owner was very helpful despite it was the middle of the night. He also offered we could check out late as we arrived so late. It was appreciated. POD: it... More

The room was clean,but lacked the charm of other guesthouses that we had stayed in. Reminded me of a motel room. Had a hot pot and place to sit outside. The host was very helpful with things to see and places to eat.

We stayed (family of five) in the cottage and had plenty of space. The host was very accommodating and friendly. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment and stores were within walking distance. It's a good place to stop when transitioning from southeast Iceland to the north.

This place is a nice little spot. Just off the highway and it's close to the grocery stores and gas stations so it's a nice place to stop on your journey around Iceland. It's clean, it's cozy, no complaints.

The guesthouse is lovely and the facilities are very good however it is located approximately 2k outside of the non bustling Eglisstadir. Ideal for one nice passerbys. The room has a flat screen TV and is hooked to a satellite dish, serves however mainly German and French channels.

Nice place, the room was clean and spacious also they had provided a microwave and cutlery which is hard to find for this rate in Iceland. The owner was very sweet and helped us with all the details we required. It was cottage style and really warm and cosy for the cold winters.

Vinland Guesthouse is located just outside of Egilsstadir, a 3 minute drive or a 30 minute walk. The owner, Binni, wasn't there when we arrived but he left the key in our room for us. The room was great, microwave, kettle, crockery and cutlery, and a TV too. The beds were very comfy, and it was nice and quiet. There... More

The rooms are very nice - a cottage style located 5 minutes from the city center. They are very affordable and the owner is a wonderful gentleman. I would recommend if you are looking for affordable, nice accommodations. You won't have big city amenities that other hotels may offer - but the price is right.
