We booked one of the private cabins, which after a friendly welcome turned out to be cute, cosy and comfortable with plenty of hot water available in the bathroom. Dinner was a serve-yourself three courses with plenty of soup, bread, meat/fish, potatoes and salad to fill us up, and a delicious dessert to boot. Breakfast was a buffet comprising, a selection of breads, jams and speads, fruit, yogurt, cold meats, cheese and cereals. Hot chocolate, tea and coffee were also available.
Our stay was unique in that we moved into the main guesthouse after our first night and then had an unplanned extra night's stay due to some extreme weather (super gale force winds!) which closed the ring road. Our room inside had twin beds but was spacious and comfortable with a shared bathroom right next door, and as we were the only guests at this point it was essentially private. The availability of free wifi was an added bonus.
The truly outstanding feature of this guesthouse was the unprecedented generosity of our hosts. As we were effectively stranded for an extra day, we were treated to afternoon tea, cake and waffles to keep us going! Then upon leaving, we were told that we wouldn't be charged for the extra night's accomoodation and meals! Who can say they have been treated with such kindness in any modern establishment??
Many thanks, we definitely recommend Guesthouse Skalafell!
