Gudrun was the most amazing hostess and we were so grateful to stay with her. She was so generous with her information that made our entire trip memorable. We would highly recommend this guesthouse, for the great location so close to excellent riding and hiking the hills out behind the house.

We booked all three rooms for us, our children, and their grandparents. All were clean and comfortable, with a very relaxed quiet feel. Gudrun could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and her fresh bread and cakes were wonderful. Thank you.

All of the reviews which consistently rank this as the best guesthouse in the Reykjavik area, if not all of Iceland are absolutely correct. This was the best place we stayed at in a 12 day tour of Iceland and a real credit to the hosts. The hosts are the most welcoming, warm, friendly couple you can imagine and go...

Like most others reviewers, we experienced close attention to our needs from our host. She was there in each morning asking what we had planned for the day. She was there when we returned from our day to ask how things went. Some folks may love this kind of attention. My wife did. I usually prefer a bit more privacy....
