It's about 12 mins drive from the glacier, very good location. We stayed in the new building which is behind the main building. The room does not have kettle. They do offer free tea and coffee in the main building. The two building is close to each other but when it's chilling, extremely windy and raining at night, it's a...

Very nice rooms with car parking possible in front of cottage. Beautiful location. Courteous staff. Decent breakfast. Easily accessible from main road. Though a bit costly, but you are in Iceland then. Will surely like to revisit!

Laughably expensive - a three star room for a five star price. Random construction materials were throughout the common areas, and while the larger window in our room had a blind, the smaller square window right in front of the shower did not - we had to use a shirt to cover it. Though basic, the room didn't present badly,...

The staff we talked with was great and very friendly. They were able to provide us with all the answers to all of our questions. During our time a huge storm was approaching and it was advised not to travel because roads were going to be closed. My concern was we did have a room for a second night but...

Stayed here as part of an intrepid tour. The rooms we stayed in seemed very new and were ensuite. The dinner wasn't the greatest, but the wait staff were very friendly. It's very expensive but that seems normal for this part of the world. Interesting art work in the common room!

Husband and I stayed for one night only. We stayed in a room with a private washroom. It was very basic stay for the evening, however the bathroom needed some serious deep clean. The best part about this place is the incredible view; the guest house is right by water & mountains.

We stayed here as part of a trip to South Iceland. Reception staff were very welcoming, fielding multiple questions about the northern lights very patiently. Rooms were small, but clean, comfortable and warm. We were also able to go in and out of the hotel at all hours to hunt for the northern lights and free tea and coffee was...

Accommodation was basic but clean. Do not expect shared facilities in the 21st Century but they were ok. No facilities in the room and it's a five minute drive to the dining room. Dining room was worse than a school canteen and the food was appalling and disgracefully overpriced. I paid over £45 for a small piece of fish, some...

We stayed at this guesthouse as part of a tour, rather than by choice, so entered with some trepidation after reading some of the negative reviews on here - but I'm pleased to say we found the criticisms without foundation, and enjoyed our brief stay. I will say that we stayed in a room in the main building, rather than...

“The main building was a good place to stay. Try to avoid the end rooms as we had a sloped ceiling.”

“A room in the main building, rather than a chalet, is advised.”
  • Not a great photo I'm afraid, but the Northern Lights were visible from immediately outside Gerd

“Make sure your bathroom has a heater and check that the main door window is frosted”
  • nice bathroom but no heater and see through window at eye level
  • bedroom
  • The see-through main door which gives no privacy so don't to leave your luggage out to tempt.
  • the bedroom's door frame was coming apart.
  • the see-through window in the bathroom. You can stand there and literally see in at eye-level
