We stayed here for two nights in January, and really enjoyed our stay. Upon arrival, Olaf (the owner) upgraded our accommodations to one of the huge guest houses (3), with it's own private hot-tub overlooking the beautiful scenery. The guest house was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and there were great sitting areas.

We ate dinner at the restaurant one night, and it was delicious! Breakfasts were the best of our trip--with a great selection of hot items to choose from, fruit and pastries.

The service we received was excellent. Everyone we crossed paths with was exceptionally helpful.

We would definitely return and recommend others to do the same.

We stayed in one of the hotel rooms for one night only. We were greeted by Olafur himself who is the most congenial of hosts with an impressive CV. This is a host who really wants to make sure you are taken care of, recommending various local attractions. Olafur let us have our choice of room which was a nice touch. The room was very comfortable and toasty warm, good tv, a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities. Lovely clean, modern, walk-in shower. The style of dining area and rooms are furnished IKEA style; with a Scandinavian chic. We dined there and whilst the meal was on the expensive side, this is Iceland – two mains, desserts, a beer/juice and coffees cost us 11,500 Isk (around £58). Maybe it was a touch on the salty side, but a pleasant enough meal. Breakfast is well impressive with a good selection. The mini Danish pastries could have come from Paris! Absolutely scrumptious! Free wi-fi from the main building, but a little hit and miss from our hotel room. The location is stunning though and having a delicious breakfast while watching the dawn rise over the icy mountains is breath-taking. Thanks Olafur for an amazing stay.

I booked these apartments as an independent 4 night trip to Iceland in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights. The location is perfect for light viewing, if they appear you can view them from the comfort of your very own hot tub!

We were upgraded by the lovely owner to a large 3 bedroom apartment with its own hot tub, which was more like a villa than an apartment. Beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean. Wonderfully warm underfloor heating kept us snug as the outside temperatures reached -7degrees.

The owners, Olafur & Kristin are wonderful hosts with a wealth of experience in the hotel and hospitality industry, and it shows with their attention to detail. An on site restaurant provides a complimentary breakfast and some delicious evening meals if you don't want to cook your own or venture into Selfoss.

I would really recommend a stay at these apartments, trust me you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Go for an apartment with a hot tub

We stayed here for a long weekend, the accommodation is very clean and the facilities excellent .The hotel is about an hour and a half from the airport and we would recommend hiring a car as it is situated in the country side with superb views and easy access to the national park the geysers and gulfoss.The food in the restaurant was very good and the breakfast that was included in the price was also excellent On the day we returned our flight time meant that we had to leave before breakfast was served but this was no problem as the owner immediately offered to get breakfast early for us which was greatly appreciated.

This is a fabulous place to stay with a group of friends or family. The accommodation is first class as is the food & the service. The house we were in (9) was beautifully appointed & had everything we could have wanted, except perhaps for another shower/bath room, as 6 of us sharing wasn't ideal. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful & made us feel more welcome. The highlight though was sitting in the hot tub in sub zero temperatures with a glass of wine & watching the Aurora Borealis putting on the most wonderful display overhead. The definite highlight of our trip to Iceland. Loved it!
