Price and quality was really great! We had the best breakfast here in our trip in Iceland. Rooms were nice and clean, and the scent was pleasing in every place. Nothing to complain about! Staff was very polite.

We stayed there only for one night but was pleasantly surprised by how big the hotel was -
We had a room with private bathroom and it was clean and fairly quiet. Breakfast was complimentary and plentiful.

We got to the hotel late (close to 9pm) but very smooth check-in and the girl at reception was friendly and efficient.

Would stay there again next time we want to be around Selfoss and tour the Golden Circle

Very nice location from which to see the south coast. Great views from there. On a clear day you can easily see the Westman Isles. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Great breakfasts. Wifi is good as well. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here to continue our journey towards Vik and it’s a farm located off the main road, abt 16 mins drive from Selfoss. Our room is at the basement, a few stairs down and it’s small - 2 singles bed combined and a bunk bed for 3 person with 3 big luggages. You get to take photo with the Icelandic horses grazing at the farm. We love the Wide spread of breakfast where you will be spoil for choices of bread, many types of cheese, spreads and ham, cavier, lovely hard-boiled egg, milk, yoghurt and the list goes on... The staff keep topping up the food and you can have coffee anytime and even take-away. By far, the best breakfast we had in Iceland.

As previous reviewers have said, the cottages are "cozy" for which you can read tiny! Our cottage was well laid out and efficient however and the beds were very comfy - I would suggest darker drapes however - when we were just there, it was light until around 11 pm and again after 3 am so if you're a light sleeper take eye covers. Excellent buffet breakfast included.

We are very happy to hear, that you enjoyed our breakfast, it is very nice of you to write such a kind words about it, thank you!

It is unfortunate, that the summer light got into the cottage, even through the curtain, we will need to order some darker ones, we are sorry abou that.
