Guesthouse at Mjoeyri
Ranked #1 of 3 Eskifjordur B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We stayed in the cottage - which is nice but the ladder to the second floor where the beds are is hard to climb - our voucher included breakfast and the owner did not like it and checked and rechecked the voucher as if it was the first time he saw it.

The location is great on the fjord in a peaceful surrounding.

The wifi coverage is low in the cottages

The breakfast was basic and simple and it was not served in a friendly manner.

Literally situated on the furtherest point of land in Eskifjordur, this place has the sea at their doorstep. Such a wonderful place, with cosy cabins, a boat jacuzzi overlooking the water, indoor sauna and incredible hosts. Fully functional kitchen and heaters throughout, this is one of the best places we've ever stayed in, and would definitely recommend it to others.

We stayed in the guesthouse for two nights and loved it. The location is perfect - away from the village but in driving distance to lots of amazing views in the fjords. The room was clean and comfortable and had solid wifi. We even saw a minke whale while standing on the grass across the bay! We immediately started planning a return trip to stay in one of the cottages.

We were 14 traveling in the Gerpir area and knew of the Mjóeyri guesthouse and guides. We spent 4 marvellous days in their company. They supplied us with acommodation in guesthouses or farms on the way,excellent guidence through the area and food,cooked and served by the cook! This is the greatest luxury I have experienced on my hikes. And we all agree! Thanks!

We were a group of 14 people that went on a hiking tour for 4 days guided by Sævar from Mjóeyri. I can highly recommend both the hiking tour and the stay at Mjóeyri. The owners Sævar and Berglind are grate hosts, the facilities are beautiful and they have a great cook at the Randolfshús. The atmosphere of the old seaman’s house „Randolfshús“, is unique where you can dine in between the old fisherman’s equipment. And I recommend swimming in the 8°C sea at Mjóeyri, and afterwards relax in the hot top massage boat. Don´t miss this place if you are travelling to Eskifjörður.

We were very lucky by choosing any of our accomotation in Iceland, but i have to say that Mjoeyri gesthouse was really special. An amazing place to stay! Mrs. Berlind and her husband were very friendly, heplfull, patient.. I remmeber, that Mr. Berlind woke up us at 2am to see the Northern lights, he stayed with us for a while and gave us some advices about the right time and conditions to see the Northern lights again. And what is the best, you can observe it right from the jacuzzi, what is pretty cool :-)
Dont miss this charming place on your way...

We, a family of four - the parents and two adult (25, 21 years old) stayed at Mjoeyri guesthouse for one night only, sorry to say, during the start of May. This was definitely one of our best stay in Iceland, maybe the best, and we surly picked the very best accommodations in Iceland. First, Mrs. Steina Berglind and her husband gave us the very best treat, they were patient, warm, amiable, informative and ....see the end. The location is second to none - on the tip of the fjord, almost on the water, with the little lighthouse nearby. See pictures in their site, they don't lie, maybe the opposite where the view is definitely stunning, and the nearby little village is charming. The huts are very comfortable, although a little condensed for a family of four, but are cozy, warm (it was still freezing in May), and well equipped. AND - that is where I tried the Hakrl (the rotten shark), a must in Iceland, together with Brenivin, which was a great experience for me, especially for the Hakrl, and the Brenivin, for a guy who is not used to alcohol. Tips: (a) Don't miss a visit or a meal in the restaurant there, the place is extraordinary and full of tradition. (b) Go there any time, but I guess you should book well in advance in July or August. (c) The guesthouse is located in the far south of the village. (d) Don't also miss a visit to the caves south to the guesthouse. Sure you can make it by yourself. The owners are very kind and they will give you the appropriate equipment and instructions, free. (e) you may use the boat-like hot tub even in einter! Don't ever dare to miss a stay at Mjoeyri.
