With view of Iceland's two major glaciers, the location of Glacier View Guesthouse can't be beat. It is ideal for forays into the Fjallabak region of the Highlands. The exteriors present an uninspiring row of conjoined box-like cabins. However, the interiors are imbued with thoughtful touches that make for a pleasant ambience and a comfortable stay. There's a charming common area where dinner and breakfast are served. We had the dinner on offer - a soup with bread and dessert for 3500 ISK. It was alright, nothing to write home about. The nearest restaurant is 40 mins away so either you come with your own food or sign up for the in-house meal. The service staff was eager and helpful. All in all, a fine place to stay before you launch into the delights of the Icelandic Highlands.
We have been travelling during Covid-19 times therefore a lot of restrictions were in place. Despite that, the guys from this guesthause made the short time spent there (1 overnight) on family holiday in Iceland very special: they have prepared very nice meat, fish and vegetable soups accompanied with home made bread. We have tried meat and fish soups, both were very good while the fish was the best we ever ate in Iceland. All staff was extremely helpfull and friendly. And on the top great view from both their restaurant and appartments. Worth to stay there!
We stayed at Glacier View Guesthouse for 3 nights in July. It is the perfect place to stay when you want to see sights and do activities around Vík and so called "Klaustur", or if you want to go up to Landmannarlaugar on route F208. The hosts are wondful and welcoming people who put a lot of effort and love into their business. I especially liked the ideas of having dinner together with other guests where they cook different types of soups (excellent!) and people get to know each other and can exchange their experiences and give each other tips. The launch in the main house is beautifully furnished and you can see that they put a lot of love and effort into furnishing it. From the main building you can have a stunning view on two (!) glaciers! The breakfast was extensive and they ad something new and freshly pepared everyday - we loved that! Coffee was exceptionally good. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished in vintage style - very beautiful. They are clean and have a nice terrace where you can enjoy sunset if you like going to bed late in summer. Glacier View Guesthouse is a great location and we will definitely return when we visit Iceland again!…
We stayed a night in July and we were very well received by the hosts. The common area really feels like a home and the room was very comfortable, dinner was delicious home-made soups and deserts ! Thank you again 😊
Glacierview Guesthouse is a fantastic place. The rooms are modern and cool and the main house cozy and charming. The soups for dinner are the best! The hosts, Elín and Borgar, are warm and friendly and extremely helpful. I had a flat tire and Borgar helped me! Elín is a fantastic cook and baker. You will love this place.
