“Marvellous, full of charm & extra comfortable BUT...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Ok, this is a dream place. After driving for hours all the way from Hofn (yes, almost 350km in rain and snow), to arrive to Fjalladyrd and find this cosy and top of the league accommodation was like arriving at the gates of heaven. We stayes in the main cottage and were extremally happy. Traditional, made 100% of wood, it had all possible comms of 5* hotel (jacuzzi shower cabin, huge living room with fire place and open plan kitchen). Room was very comfortable, with traditional decorations, big comfy beds and balcony...
Mind thou... we were seriously put off by the attitiude of the hostess. We arrived in the dark and were not aware that reception and restaurant is housed in other building bit furthed down the road. She did not give us any explanation/ suggestions and spend whole eveing watching TV withous saying a word (we spent all time in our room). We felt like asking for to much when arranging for a payment and did not even bodered to ask if we can use the kitchen or other facilities. Not very welcoming...

The place is excellent with absolutely all the facilities you can need to feel really comfortable after a long day. The house is nice with all the details you could expect. If you are thinking about enjoying the fantastic sceneries in this part of Iceland or getting to Askja, Fjalladyrd is a great place to stay. Besides, it is very near from the ring road, just about 8-10Km.
