We had a 2nights stay in a cabin, with porch and private bathroom. Nice beds, The location is quiet and scenic near a sheep farm. There is a beautiful canyon nearby. Diner is okay; breakfast is good, but no hot options or eggs. Wifi is good. Price quality range mediocre.

We stayed here for two nights in the middle of our self-drive tour (our cabin had two rooms with private baths). We loved how quiet it was, not far off the main road but nestled on a sheep farm. The staff were great and amazingly attentive at meal times. Breakfast was good but basic with no hot options and no eggs (not even boiled). We ate dinner there one night and enjoyed the lamb from their farm. And get the apple cake! It's so good we went back just for dessert the second night. Beautiful canyon nearby that is absolutely worth the time and very little effort.

This was our 4th lodging stop while driving the ring road. It was very nice and not far off the road. A bathroom was shared between 2 rooms in one cabin. Dinner was mediocre, we were a little disappointed. Breakfast was the same as all the other guest houses. yogurt, bread, fruits and some fish.

We spent a couple of nights here recently.It was warm and comfortable, with pleasant staff.Quiet and quite scenic and with a nice restaurant on site.There we’re places to visit from here , such as a canyon, some basalt formations, the tomato farm and Icelandic horses.We drove from here to the Glacier Lagoon and back. We had a puncture and the owner very kindly helped us and let us look at his sheep lambing.

We had a room with shares bathroom. Very small room indeed! Dinner in the restaurant was good. We ate lamb and plokkifiskur. The breakfast started too late concerning that all the glacier walks etc programs start early. This was surprice for us. Also some others had to leave without breakfast. We asked (and got) breakfast bag with us but it was only poor sandwich (ham and cheese inside) and banana.

The accommodation comprised cabins. The rooms were fairly ordinary, but comfortable. The restaurant in the main building had lovely views, and the food was excellent. There was also a good selection of wine.The staff were very helpful, and found us some nice glasses that we were able to take to our room. The accommodation is very close to the Fjadorargljufur Canyon, which is worth a detour.

This was a really scenic place to stop for a night on our Iceland road trip. We had a room in a wooden chalet, with a bathroom shared with the guests in the other room. Nicely furnished and so quiet. We ate at the guesthouse restaurant - high quality food and great ambience. Breakfast was equally good. Our host recommended we visit the nearby canyon which was absolutely stunning. All in all, highly recommended.

I came twice in this guesthouse, the first was before Justin Bieber and the canyon was not a known location. The guesthouse remained the same, family-managed, based on nice independent silent cabins, dinner is good (it was better 4 years ago). A useful tip: there are cabins with two rooms and a shared bathroom, so the ratio of guests and toilets is very convenient, or if you're a group of 4 you can have one entire cabin sharing the bathroom.

Stayed there for one night. When we arrived there was no one there to greet us so we had to call a service number and wait for about 10 minutes for someone to come. The cabins are clean and comfortable, and the surroundings are very quiet and beautiful. The beds are rather small and firm but ok for at least one night. The free wifi is terrible and almost useless. The breakfast buffet was very good though.
