“Amazing Place!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We recently stayed here on a ten day tour through Iceland. Beautiful setting with snipes whizzing everywhere and gorgeous vistas. Loved the elegant sparse decor of our room and the pink table clothes and blue dishes of the dining room. Service was excellent and food delicious. Yummy self serve breakfast.

That was a really fabulous experience. Very nice, big, clean cottages in the picturesque place. It will be perfect for big families. Hot tubes with thermal water is something fantastic. Nice cozy restaurant with great food. Best croissants in the world!

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014 and absolutely loved it. We stayed in one of the main apartments. It was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. There was also a hot tub outside that was fun - you can relax after dinner and wait for the Northern lights to appear! Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Makes a great base for exploring the Golden Circle. We were sad to have to leave and hope to return again soon!

Stayed there the first three days of our week here, we knew whilst leaving that this setting and the people around us would create a benchmark. Located perfectly to explore the Golden Circle, great facilities, great location - highly recommended!!!

We stay in one of the 4 bedroom bungalows for 3 nights. This bungalow was amazing, there is so much space and beautifully decorated. Each bungalow has its own hot tub which we made use of. TV is available with English channels, Wifi worked well and the uninterupted views are wonderfull. We had breakfast each morning and having read some previous reviews about it being at the back of the owners accomodation I was a bit anxious about what it would be like, however the breakfast room, yes in a bungalow which houses both the breakfast room/ restaurant and reception is charming. Breakfast is continental and set out in a kitchen area, but this is so fanatastic, I do not know how visitors could fail to be charmed by it. Breakfast was very good and very much to my taste, there is plenty available and eating breakfast while looking at the view is great. The staff were very pleasant without being intrusive.
Dont think twice about booking this property it is wonderful and very accessible to the National Park, the Geysirs and Gullfoss. Selfoss is about 5 miles away and has everything you need, check out Kaffee Kurtis. Also while in the area try and visit the geothermal power plant it is so interesting.

Room Tip: It is worth booking the larger bunaglow if you are staying several nights and you have 4+ adults in...

These apartments were truly exceptional although we were spoilt by having 4 adults in a spacious apartment for at least 7. The views from the living area of the surrounding hills were 270 degrees giving a real feel for openness and wilderness - also from the great hot tub enjoyed in very cold conditions! Although the only place to eat for miles around, the restaurant was also superb and the menu extensive enough for three nights of varied eating - though more limited if your don't eat fish!

Staff were very friendly and put real effort into investigating options for excursions for us.

Location great for the Golden Circle including pingvellir, Gullfoss and geyser ( almost missed the very nearby but really worth visiting Kerid volcano crater) but we also went as far as Vik along the coast (several big waterfalls and, for a day by itself, to the recently erupted Eyjafjallajokull) comfortably in a day return.

Room Tip: Go for the larger apartment and enjoy the space, views and hot tub.
