Driving to Hrifunes is a treat. The scenery is stunning. The room, the view from the main house, the food and the staff made this a memorable 2 nights. When we stayed we had Andrea doing the cooking and the ""meet and greet, and although she isn't the owner but a good friend of the owner, she takes as much... More

After reading the reviews, perhaps I expected perfection from this place. The staff is very kind, the location is beautiful, and the breakfast is really great. The room was nice, but didn't have any view, wifi worked intermittently, and you could hear every sound from the adjacent room. Considered the nightly price of around 250€, I'm not sure if I...

We spent a total of 5 nights here, first 3 and then 2 a few nights later. The atmosphere in this family run guesthouse is magic. They are so accommodating, friendly and helpful that you felt like part of their family. The food was out of this world - and so much variety. We had 2 vegetarians and one onion... More

Expertly renovated old meeting house in Hrifunes with a very homelike feel. Hadda's meals were spectacular as was the welcoming feeling. The worst part about leaving was missing another of Hadda's meals. I've asked for the cookbook if she ever takes the time to write one. We were touring with her husband, Haukur a wonderful photographer who knew where and... More

We stayed at Hrifunes guesthouse for a night in late April 2016 on our round trip of Iceland. We stayed mostly in guesthouses where we could meet local hosts and chat with other travelers while making a meal. Hadda offered a communal home cooked meal which I thought would be perfect after a long day of sightseeing. It would have... More

A short drive up into a valley from the ring road. Comfortable room in cosy and cool vintage style. Home cooked meal in the evening was delicious with a wide and generous selection of dishes. Just stayed one night on a trip around Iceland, but enjoyed our short stop at the guesthouse.

A good choice. A welcoming place. Homey. The food is really, really good. We stayed in a room with its own bathroom which was nice. There are also rooms with shared bathrooms in the main house. Our room had a queen bed and two bunk beds – good to put your luggage on. Cannot say enough about the food. We... More

The decor of the place is cosy and reflects effort put in. However, perhaps our experience could have been more enjoyable if we had gotten a more private room. We arrived late and was allocated two rooms near the dining area, which proved to be very noisy as guests lingered and chatted at the dining area till about 10.30pm. We... More
