Lovely, cosy place. Cabin was abit dark for my liking thou, could do with more lights. Bedding was a little hard and small as a double bed. Walkway to the cabin can be pretty dark as well. Breakfast wasn't included and cost 15 EUR per pax for a simple buffet which we skipped. We were looking forward to using the...

We booked this place luckily last minute! Best decision ever as we spent all day driving to Vik sightseeing and then drove back to continue our Golden Circle journey we found this was the perfect stop to spend the night. Staff very friendly at reception. There is a supermarket about 5mins drive away. The House was picture perfect and equipped...

My husband and I rented a camper van and stayed in campgrounds around the island. This was by far our favorite with the best amenities. Shower was included in the price of camping spot (isn't everywhere, ask). Wifi was great. Get a spot closer to the check in cabin for better reception. Nice indoor hangout/ cooking area.

Great location for the south coast. We had a cabin that was split in half for two rooms. Our neighbours were very quiet so could not comment on noise. Great night sleep. New bedding is needed as I can tell it's a bit worn now. Hot tub was lovely. Breakfast was great had a continental style and waffles. Owners were...

Only spent one night here and it wasn't the best. Previous reviews are mostly very good to excellent and I am a little surprised by them. The cabins are small. Yes they are 19m2 as advertised by I suppose I am comparing them to the previous night's cabin which was much larger and at a very similar price. There were...

We stayed here for one night during our stay in Iceland. We'd had a really bad experience in a hotel in Reykjavik the night before and I was dreading checking in to here just in case it was the norm for Icelandic hospitality, it wasn't. We were met by a lovely man who took payment for our room and gave...

We stayed here in a camper van for one night on the last leg of our tour of Iceland early October. The campsite had some sheltered areas where we parked the van as it was lashing with rain and strong winds. We had a peaceful sleep and there was a lovely sunrise the next day. Facilities were close by. Showers...

We stayed in a Triple room cabin for 2 nights. And the cabin was clean and super cute! There's a tiny self-equipped kitchen with a tiny cooker inside and to be honest, for a budget trip in Iceland this was VERY good value for money. Sometimes the Wifi doesn't work inside the room, so for best reception it's better to...

We camped here with an RV on Sept. 17. Nice campground: flat stone pad for RV, electric, dump station for toilet cartridge, fresh water fill up, sinks, bathrooms and shower house. Great experience!!!!
