“Best Little Guesthouse in Blondous!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

On a short trip to explore the beautiful town of Blönduós, we decided to stay in a perfectly located guesthouse by the mouth of the river Blanda. We were immediately given the best room in the house, (a double in the upper corner of the building) overlooking the river where it runs into the sea. The owners, Jon and Yolanda welcomed us like family, and Jon treated us to a private tour of the city in his own truck. The little bar in the dining room was friendly and frequented by the locals, and Yolanda served up amazing feasts created in her clean sunny kitchen. We will be returning soon to visit our new friends at the Guesthouse Kiljan.

The guesthouse is beautiful and the owners (a couple) are very friendly and give you sense of family. The food at the guesthouse restaurant was very good. The rooms are extremely clean and the guesthouse in general was very tidy and in very good taste. Excellent value for the price. We were able to see the Northern lights after the owner let us know and we ran downstairs for the display!!

I went there with my girlfriend, in November such a great owners. We stayed in the apartment outside the main house. So clean and nice! Good food and I would stay there again. We had a good walk around the area. We dressed well and took ocean walk. Friendly staff and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Choose the apartment, there you have private bathroom... and that´s important in romantic get away...

We did not stay here but we did stop in for a couple of Tuborgs and had a heartwarming visit with Jon and Yolanda. Yolanda gave us a tour of their newly renovated guesthouse. It is a huge improvement from our visit there two years ago when it was only a sports bar. We were amazed at the transformation. It is very clean and full of love. We wish this couple the best in their new guesthouse in the charming village of Blonduos. It is a lovely place to visit and the next time we're in the area we will most definitely stay at their inn!

Thank you for that compliment Gail :)

Our drive is to welcome each and every guest like he´s a guest at our home. Our favorite spice is that little extra love we put into our work.
