I have been there with my gf during a trip in South Iceland. We run out of gas in Laugarvatn, so we stopped at N1 gas station. A bit further along the same road we spotted this nice b&b. Unfortunately it was fully booked, but the host showed us a room and we booked it for the night after. The owner (an Icelandic craft artist) was not there in that week and a friend of her was in charge of the b&b. Herself an artist from Reykjavik, she gave us a very warm welcoming in Laugarvatn. Her courtesy was amazing and so was her English.
Among the neat details of this place, I need to mention the breakfast in the small art gallery/shop with waffles and a delicious homemade trout salad. Impossible to forget the most comfortable bathroom I have ever used in my life.
Another plus: the location is ideal for hikes in the beautiful Þingvellir national park.
