It's rare that I write reviews on the places we visit, but Glacier View Guesthouse provided such a rare experience. Simply put- STAY HERE. From the moment we walked through the beautiful front door to the shared lobby space, we were greeted by the host couple and two of their family-like staff. Smiles, offers of fresh cookies and refreshments and a clear willingness to go above and beyond to make our stay special. We were two families with several young children and they offered to make fresh pizza and pasta for the kids as we got settled. Our children loved exploring the grounds with free space to roam and explore beyond the buildings. The hostess offered to include us in a home-cooked, multi-course dinner that evening- which is not something we'd typically say yes to or spend the extra money on. Let me tell you-- it was worth every penny. The food was restaurant-quality and ended up the best meal we had on our trip. The family-style farm table allowed us to get to know others staying at the Guesthouse and the wine was a heavy pour in a lovely personal carafe. It was those little touches that made it all special. The rooms were modern, clean and well-appointed. It appears as though it has all been redone and updated because each space we entered was pristine. Had I not had my little children with us, I would have spent hours curled up in a couch in the shared living room area, reading with wine and gazing out at the views. Michael (unsure of spelling) was like a manager from a movie- he was kind, attentive and truly takes so much pride in his position. Breakfast came with more surprises of fresh wellness juice shots, homemade jams and bread, pancakes etc. Our only regret was staying just one night at this one-of-a-kind gem in Iceland.

Awesome accommodations in a lovely setting. The Hostess and her staff are warm friendly and very accommodating. Make sure to have dinner there. It was superb. Breakfast is also great. Varied and delicious. Highly recommend a stop here along the ring road. Vik is nothing special so stay here!!

The place is warm and cocooning. The rooms (cottages) are very well equipped and in good weather the terrace must be nice. The hosts are so welcoming, they have a great sense of hospitality. We had dinner and their soups are excellent. Very good breakfast. And I would love to have the recipe for their cookies!

Absolutely loved our stay here! The main house is so cozy and welcoming. Breakfast was wonderful! Wish we had stayed for longer here! The views were spectacular, peaceful, and with it being so isolated would be a great place to see the northern lights (it was cloudy/overcast the night we stayed). Would 100% stay here again!

Lovely Cosy Guesthouse and the Host Elín is really lovely too! Perfect Breakfast and good Soups for the Dinner. The Guesthouse ist located on the South of Iceland and a perfect starting point for the Glaciers and the Diamond Beach. And with a little luck you can see the Polar Lights!

We had an amazing stay at the Glacier View Guesthouse and absolutely hope to go back again! The rooms are super cozy, the beds are incredibly comfortable and the location is amazing. About 30 minutes from Vik, surrounded by nature. We felt so welcome by the incredible staff that was so nice and helpful. We had a super nice dinner and breakfast in the main house. Our only regret is that we were not staying longer. Highly recommend this guesthouse.
