At first we thought this could be a faulty towers establishment - the cow shed next door, funny guests getting upset about the parking, but this B&B turned out to be a treasure, particularly the food - Dinner was amazing - highly recommend the beef and by far the largest breakfast choice. Staff were all friendly and accommodating. We had a nice top floor room with partial view of the lake - think the trees need pruning & then everyone's views would be fantastic.

It was a long day driving through the treacherous eastern mountains, and Egilsstadir Guesthouse was like an oasis at the end. It was the biggest room we'd stayed in at any of the guesthouses, beautifully decorated in calming blues and greens. Plenty of space to move around, 3 old windows overlooking the lake, and a bathroom of ample size. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. More than the usual bread and meats and cheeses, they also provided eggs, sausage and waffles! I'd have loved to have stayed longer!

We selected Egilsstadir Guesthouse based on our Rough Guide and after arriving in Elgisstadir and driving around to look at it and a couple other hotels and restaurants. The Guesthouse is an old, restored farmhouse with lots of charm - even the operating barn next door! The room was more spacious than those at nearly all the other hotels we stayed at during our 10 days in Iceland, and was very nicely furnished. Two large windows afforded a view of trees and the adjacent lake. There was even a small desk area and a fairly spacious bathroom. The small lobby/reception area had some cozy chairs and a bookshelf with interesting books to browse, many in English (all the staff spoke English). The dining room was intimate, very nicely decorated with interesting historical photos, pretty wood floors and tables, comfy chairs. Dinner was excellent! Local char and smoked salmon and other specialties, a fabulous salad, and delicious dessert. There was an ample and delicious breakfast. Staff provided an excellent recommendation on the wine and were all very friendly and helpful. This is a charming place to visit and we highly recommend it!

Beautiful hotel similar to a larger Vermont B&B. Old farmhouse has been restored, and the rooms are clean and large. Lake out back was gorgeous! Easily the best breakfast we had on the entire trip. A bit expensive, but worth it!

GPS took us straight to the door, opposite side of crossroad from N1 filling station. Strange smell of cow shed immediately adjacent to building but if not used to country air then the guesthouse accomodation will make up for it. Beutiful rear to the property, tree lined with grass down to the lake. Absolutely first rate rooms, showers, mine was en-suite, very modern room comfortable bed. Stair access to second floor was a bit quaint, bit like a french chateau, difficult with large cases though.
Was surprised when we went down for dinner to find an a la carte type menu, tables layed out like the Savoy, & prices to match the Grand in Reykjavik!!!! Didnt eat there as was after a lighter meal, however food that was brought out to others looked good. (I was after 'man' food, not 'ponsey' food). I thought this a strange dinner venue as the guesthouse was full of hikers & back packers, most walked over the road to the N1 service station that serves very good meals, recommend meal of the day, 3 course. We ate at Neilsens restaurant which is 100 metres from the N1 towards Seydisfjordur, an excellent meal was had at a third of the price of the Guesthouse.
Woken up at 0530 by cows, whatever floats your boat, but with window shut wasnt a problem.
Overall a very good guesthouse, good parking reasonable prices.
