We had two separate camping pots for the four of us. The exterior looks very nice but it is very disappointing inside! It was quite cold (just a little heater to switch on), with little space and no possibility of cooking, not even boil some water. We had to climb up a stony path to get access to water, toilets...

I stayed in guesthouse 5. The bed was really comfortable, the shower was great (and private!) and Binni was very helpful with suggestions for dinner in the area as well as ideas for the remainder of our Iceland trip. I would definitely recommend staying here.

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.

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
