"Kennarabústaður" means "Teacher's House" (referring to its former use) and it is situated by road "261", about 10km from Hvolsvöllur village. Kennarabústaður is located in the beautiful valley of Fljótshlíd, part of Katla Geo Park, with three stunning icecaps surrounding the valley. To reach Kennarabústaður, turn off from the "1" ring road at Hvolsvöllur and drive along road "261" for about 10 kms until you see the sign for the guesthouse, on the righthand side of the road. Turn in right here, on to the driveway, and Kennarabústaður is just few meters away, again, on your right. If we can be of any further help with any enquiry you might have about Kennarabústaður or about the area then please just make contact with us; we will be very happy to assist and advise. Thank you again for choosing Kennarabústaður; we hope you have a most enjoyable and comfortable stay with us. Jana & Guðni

This place has obviously been completely renovated quite recently and is very clean and attractively decorated. The room was very small and had bunk beds, which I was not expecting. Could have used a chair and somewhere to hang clothes, as there were beds, but nothing else in

The best guesthouse we have been in Iceland. Very comfortable, cosy and near a lot of spots. Large kitchen with everything, even a dishwasher! Very new and clean. And last but not least, Federica, the Italian receptionist that has given up a lot of tips! Thank you!

Great place to stay when in south Iceland. Only 10 minutes off the main road and 25 minutes from the famous waterfalls, I was so comfortable in my big bed in my private room in this clean and peaceful guest house that I extended my stay from 1 night to 4 nights. It can get a bit
