“A place to go back..”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We visited the Guesthouse end of September and it was our last stop in Iceland.
The location is ideal to stay the first or last day in Iceland as it is only an hour from the airport and it is also ideal when you visit Reykjavik (just 15 minutes away) but you do not want to stay in the centre. I would also recommend it as an ideal place ot stay for a couple of days and relax being next to the Golden Circle and having lots of aminities and activities in the surrounding area.

The place was very cozy, had a homely feeling to it. The couple who owned it are taking great care of it. When we were there they were installing a hot tube. Inside there are three rooms, with one shared kitchen and bathroom. In the morning there was fresh baked bread and when we arrived there was a great homemade cake and there were even sweets and a personalised welcome message on our bed! The views also from the "South " room were fabulous.. Thanks you for the great hospitality!

Room Tip: The South facing room has a great view.

Grudrun, Thank you! Was so pleased I booked here. All nicely done, congratulations. Wonderful room, facilities, kitchen facilities and breakfast and other wonderful pantry goodies. Also great spa, thank you for seeing perfect temperature and availabitity - it was so appreciated after a lot of travelling. The hospitality was wonderful and genuine. The fresh baking made it a bit like home which was great as I was over 12,000 miles away (and travelling on my own). I nearly managed to get back a second night.
Overall no hesitation to return, only keenness. Exciting we did see a glimpse of northern lights. Saw it first at your Guesthouse! Yet fortunately saw the show a few nights later, more properly - yet would have been better back at your accomodation that subseqent evening. Again sincere thank you.

My wife and I spent 4 of our 10 day Iceland honeymoon at the M-M Guesthouse. It was a great experience for many reasons:

* The farm is beautiful, scenic, and peaceful
* The location is well-situated near Reykjavik (20 min drive)
* The house itself is quaint and a is a great place to relax (it feels like a home)
* The kitchen is great for cooking meals and the fresh eggs for breakfast were over the top!
* Gudrun and Valur are wonderful hosts and are genuine people - willing to help plan our Icelandic adventures or just hang out
* The price is fair for what they offer

There are a few shortcomings that you should be aware of
* It's best to have a car to get there (and around Iceland)
* There are three rooms total (each of which is private) and a common kitchen, living room, and bathroom is shared so don't expect it to be super-private (though the other guests were nice since they're on vacation too!)

My wife and I recommend this guest house to anybody passing through the area.

Skál!

We stayed at Minna-Mosfell for three nights in October 2013; it was a fantastic experience all round. Gudrun & Valur are exceptional hosts - they really make you feel welcome. Not to mention the amazing home-baked bread, pancakes and cake that seem to arrive with the fairies in the mornings and evenings! The guesthouse itself is a lovely warm, relaxing base for seeing the Iceland sights - there's a lounge area and a well-stocked kitchen as well as a wealth of info on Iceland. There's also a new hot-tub out on the decked area (and a BBQ being put in for the Summer next year I believe!).

We had the smaller double room, but it was plenty big enough for the two of us plus cases. It was in the eaves of the house so really warm and snug. The bed was very comfortable (bearing in mind I'm currently six months pregnant and therefore take up a lot of bedspace!), there's a washbasin in the room and the bathroom (with constant hot shower) is right outside the door.

I couldn't recommend this place enough - we have stayed in hundreds of guesthouses around the world and I think this has to be one of the very best.

A friendly welcome on arrival from Gudrun and we were soon settled in with a coffee and Gudruns excellent home made chocolate cake.
A spacious comfortable bedroom (east) and a very pleasant dining area/lounge. The kitchen is a little small but fine for cooking an evening meal before relaxing around the dining table with great views out of the glass balcony doors (the doors are glass, not the balcony!!)
This is an excellent place to stay and we would have no hesitation in recommending it, over the previous 2 weeks we had travelled around Iceland and stayed at a variety of places - this was one of the best.
We will certainly stay here again on our next trip to Iceland and stay more than one night.

Room Tip: south and east rooms are the largest, with east probably being the best, the west room is quite a bi...

I stayed at Minna Mosfell for 3 nights. I have stayed in many B&B with the good rating based on Tripadvisor and Booking, but this one is really outstanding. The room was beautiful. The bed was really comfortable with the wonderful view of mountains. The most important thing is they made us felt like we were their children with their care and warm hospitality. Gudrun helped us a lot to plan our trip around Iceland. Her homemade bread was also fantastic.

We stayed in Minna-Mosfell for one night at the end of our trip in Iceland.
We had very nice hotel experiences all the way through the island but the attentions to us, and in particular to our young daughter, from Gudrun and Valur were really extraordinary.
Gudrun and Valur are very kind, clever and open-minded persons and it was very enjoyable to meet them.
Furthermore, Gudrun surprised us preparing fantastic food (cakes, crepes and so on) during the evening (although we arrived late) and morning.
In the morning, Valur entertained our daughter with his beautiful horses.
The house/farm is located in a very beautiful quiet countryside between Thingvellir and Reykjavik, and it is big and well maintained.
Rooms are large, bathrooms are well equipped with hot spring water, and we had all the first floor at our complete disposal.
When we come back to Iceland, our first accommodation will be Minna-Mosfell…….Gudrun and Valur do not worry, in case we will not arrive in Reykjavik at 2 a.m. as this time!.
