This is one of the many farm guesthouses in Iceland. You are on farm property, surrounded by a few other buildings, houses, and a restaurant, all owned by the same extended family. The guesthouse is two floors, with a large eating area on the ground floor, and rooms above. The rooms are clean and modern, large bathroom, comfortable beds. You either have views of the ocean or the mountains.
Our arrival was a little awkward; no one was in the guesthouse, so we went next door and the lady there came down and gave us a room. Language was an issue, but we figured it all out. We felt at home here (only one other couple in the whole building), and everyone we met was helpful and friendly. The restaurant just up the road was amazing, considering the location of this farm.
This is a great place to stay when seeing any of the Southeast attractions. It's only a couple of minutes to Jökulsárlón (the Iceberg Lagoon). It is an easy day's drive from Reykjavik, so if doing the ring road, it's a great first night stop. Farmholidays.is arranged this for us.
