“Pleasant, clean B&B with great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Our family of four stayed for one night at Guesthouse Hofdagata. It's a much nicer than the exterior shots on the Guesthouse's own website would suggest. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and the lounge is comfortable with great views out over the bay and towards the hills.

The continental buffet breakfast was top notch.

Iceland is very expensive and the prices represented decent value for money for Iceland.

All in all, it's a neat, tidy, pleasant B&B with charming staff. Recommended.

Hofdagata is a lovely and cosy b&b, tastefully decorated and plenty of stylish details. Although the room was quite small (but with private bathroom included) it was warm, very clean, quiet and relaxing. Ella prepared an excellent breakfast in the sitting room and the renowned cold Icelandic porridge was simply delicious. The only drawback was not being able to use the kitchen as we would have liked to prepare dinner there. There's also a hot tub in the garden. And Stykkisholmur is a lovely little town...
We defintely recommend it!

Super clean, very friendly. The owner Ella- was super friendly, super helpful- and made the most delicious plentiful breakfast with the most amazing porridge. The house was very clean and large with a full kitchen that we were able to use- there is a grocery store just around the corner we were able to pick up some groceries and cook dinner. There is tea and coffee available- plates and pots to cook in. super nice house. Great location. Highly recommend it!

Room Tip: there are two great common bathrooms- there are a few rooms with private bathrooms but to save money...

We had a great time at Hofdagata. Ella made an excellent breakfast - the cold Icelandic porridge was simply delicious. The hot tub was really nice in the evenings. And Stykkisholmur is a lovely little town. We were there a few days and Ella was very helpful with suggestions on where to go and what to see. Highly recommended.

I have stayed here several times and it is always a pleasure. The food is good and the rooms are nice and clean. I look forward to going back here. There is also an outside hot pot! The coffee was great as well.

It is indeed a lovely and cosy B & B. Despite the fact that the room was very small and included no bathroom, we liked it very much. Needless to note that it was very clean. Ella is very hospitable and is running this place most efficiently. Breakfast was very good as well.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

Stayed here for one night in June. We got in with the late ferry from West Fjords, so did not get to have dinner in town- (too late). We rented 2 rooms for about $120 each. This included a continental breakfast served in a communal dining area. Breakfast was filling- porridge, fruits, cold cuts, juice and coffee. They had plenty of food and kept bringing more out. We shared a bathroom with shower. The bathroom floor could get slippery, advise to wear flip flopslor seemed to get wet fast with another room. Our room w/double bed had a lovely view of the church. The other room was tinier with 2 single beds. Black out curtains were good and the bed was very comfortable. The place was full, but everyone mostly considerate and quiet. Did not use the hot tub. We left right after breakfast.
