This is a comfortable, clean guesthouse about 10 minutes drive out of Selfoss. There was lots of choice for breakfast and the waffles went down very well. The hot tub outside is one of the nicest I've been in, with no nasty chemicals - so nice that I stayed in for 2 hours one evening.

We both really enjoyed staying here on our last night in Iceland. The rooms were very clean and the whole place had a lovely welcoming feel. The property is great for families and the hosts are fantastic. The sauna was a fantastic bonus.

Unfortunately my mother had an injury and our stay was cut short. The owners graciously refunded the balance of our stay as we had to stay in Reykjavik near the hospital for the remainder of our stay. We enjoyed one breakfast there and were sad to have to leave. Food is expensive and this is a great value. If you...

Our stay was very relaxing and the room was basic but very clean. Breakfast had a good selection with breads, cheeses, meats, jams, boiled eggs, waffles, fruits and yoghurts. There was coffee and tea facilities available in the dining room 24 hours which was good. The hot tub is available 24 hours and the sauna a couple hours at night...

Probably the best breakfast of our whole holiday. A very comfortable room and perfect for families as the rooms lead almost straight off the communal dining sitting room so you can sit there after the children go to sleep. Its own hot tub and sauna; farm animals to meet and only a short drive to Selfoss for dinner. We wished...

This place had the cleanliness and comfort of a hotel, but with a very homely feeling with welcoming owners. There were only a few rooms, and the place was fully booked. We didn't notice it though, it was quiet. Everything was arranged well, there was an envelope with our name on it at the desk with our key. In the...

Great location, just out of town, right off of the main road. Its a working farm and they let you roam the property if you want to check out the animals (I didn't because it was very cold and snowy at the time). They also have a book in the rooms with recommendations of nearby food and sights to see....

I staid for one night in Guesthouse Lambastaðir and absolutely loved it. The room is very big for Icelandic standards, the bathroom was very modern and all in all the guesthouse was very comfortable and impressively clean. The Guesthouse was fully booked for the night but there was no noise problem at all. The walls are thick enough so even...

Stayed two nights (non consecutive) during our stay. Both rooms we had were good. The staff are friendly, the animals as well. Amazing breakfast both mornings. Saw the northern lights from the car park. No complaints, highly recommend!

We recently spent 2 nights at Lambastadir guesthouse as a family of 5. The hosts were lovely and gave us a very warm welcome with balloons in my sons room for his birthday. We were a family of 5 with three young children and they were very accommodating in their suggestions of what we should do. We travelled around the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lambastadir Guesthouse is quiet and modern, farm holiday guesthouse. It is located in the center of South Iceland, by highway number one, only 45 minutes drive from Reykjavik. The guesthouse is family owned and our special pleasure is to inform our guests about where to go, what to do and to help guests to organize their holidays. We feel our guesthouse perfectly located for those wanting to visit historical places and Iceland´s unique nature, for example The Golden Falls, Geysir, Thingvellir National Park, Landmannalaugar, Seljalandsfoss water falla and Westman Islands. Nearby is the village Selfoss where you can find restaurants, swimming pool, golf course, banks and magazines and Reykajvik City is only 45 minutes drive from the guesthouse. Numerous activities in the neighborhood as horse riding, hiking, fishing, glacier walking, kayak boating, river rafting, snorkeling, bird watching and snow mobile. In the guesthouse are eleven non smoking comfortable rooms with private bathroom and shower. Wi-Fi internet access is free of charge. Sauna an outdoor hot tub filled with warm natural water, excellent for relaxation, are free. The communal dining room features tea/coffee making facilities. Sheep and horses are in fence close to the guesthouse. Gooses, chickens and ducks are free on our farm so our feeling is the guesthouse is family friendly. Breakfast buffet is served in the morning. ... more   less
