Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a 10-day tour around Iceland.
When I was told we were staying in a converted old people's home I was a little surprised and apprehensive. However, this was totally misplaced.
The main accommodation is all on one level. Each room is slightly different with a handbasin. There are several bathrooms, again all slightly different. And yes they are still the "old people" ones but this means they are spacious. I never had to wait to use a bathroom.
The lounge area has a well stocked honesty bar, comfy sofas, games and books, There is also a fantstic view over the fjord and a telescope to make the most of it. We had a lot of wet kit and the owners were happy for us to hang it in the warm corridor downstairs.
There is also a hot tub in the back garden - an ideal place to chill at the end of the day.
The owners have an amazing eye for design. There are lots of beautiful little touches that I would hate to list here and spoil the surprise for you.
Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting.
Oh - and check out the chilckens sleeping in the trees in the front garden!!
