Very nice room. Love all the wood. Close to Hofn. Good breakfast. Did not have supper but menu looked good. Bed very comfortable. Only issue I had is the metal chairs on the room were very uncomfortable.

We stayed at the guesthouse part of the hotel. It wasn't the cheapest, but you get a free breakfast buffet, which was very good by the wat. Rooms are very clean and have a very authentic & cosy feel..

Located far enough from the town to avoid too much light but close enough to make driving for dinner convenient. The host has great knowledge of the surroundings and can suggest activities and places to eat. Room is spacious to fit luggage and bathroom comfortable and easy to keep clean. You can easily tell it is quite new.

Day 4 of 8, we decided to stay here. Nice little place to stay and enjoy the views of the country side. There is a little town nearby so you can get some gas or food! If I ever came back to Iceland, I wouldn't mind here! Also was able to see the lights!!

There is nothing good to say about this place although the clean room. This place is far from everything, nothing to do i the evenings, no restaurant. In the room was hand soap for showering?!? No electric kettle, no tea or coffee in the room. We didnt like it at all

Clean and comfortable guesthouse. Our hosts were kind enough to give us an upgrade. Great location close to town, were there late in the season so no dinner offered but easy drive into Hofn to find dinner. Breakfast in the morning was very good and we were greeted in the morning by a sweet dog just outside our room. My...

We stayed in this country guesthouse with very clean, cozy, warm accommodations. Our host was so friendly and offered the best breakfast ever! The presentation was beautiful with unlimited offerings and choices. In addition to the accommodations , Scotty the dog greeted us with a game of throw and chase the stone. He followed you as far as the door...

Very comfortable and convenient, just before you arrive in the town of Hofn. They have horse rides available and a good restaurant for dinner. Not fancy but very good food. And the whole family is there helping out. Charming.

This is a quiet hotel, off the main road. The rooms are basic but spacious and toasty warm. Breakfast is OK and the restaurant probably competes OK against those in the town. Maybe having a jug in the room would be nice but overall no complaints. Oh, and there are nice views of the various glaciers in the distance.

This small Country Lodges Hotel is located in the Icelandic Countryside. Not many rooms are available. The staff was very kind and also the service during dinner and breakfast was very good. The best thing I've appreciated was the location. In fact, some products came directly from the local farms. You can really feel nature in this place. Really Recommended
