Stórulaugar is my go-to accommodations whenever I am in the Mývatn area. The owner Elín ensures that everything is taken care of and in turn she earns my loyalty. The rooms are large enough and comfortable, with private bathroom. There is a refrigerator in the corridor outside the room that is available for use. Breakfast is excellent and during the... More

The room was pretty basic but still nice. Finally we got to enjoy a big bathroom. LOL. But everything else was okay. We didn't get to try the hot tub cos it was so so cold and raining all day and night long while we were there.

It comprises three buildings two of which are separate from reception. The two separate lodgings each have a hot tub which is great to sit in after a day out. It is about 25km from Myvatn so just that little bit cheaper (if there is such a thing in Iceland). The room was fine, not small, but you can clearer... More

We were assigned to a room above the reception. It was very small--the smallest room we had out of 9 accommodations. The neighbor's shutting doors and walking was felt completely in our room. The room had a great bathroom and nothing else to recommend it. The curtains were ridiculous. This cotton striped pieces of cloth that you cannot move on... More

Nice host, nice house, nice views, nice dinner, nice breakfast, nice room, hot pot - everything you need from a guesthouse in Iceland. A perfect place to sleep between Akureyri and Myvatn, really recommended.

Beautiful guesthouse located in Laugar. Rooms were equipped with kettle and tea, beds comfortable and location perfect to explore Myvatn and Husavik. Has a lovely hot pot for guests and horses you can pet. Breakfast was delicious and included local smoked Arctic char. Elin was a welcoming host when we arrived and made sure our stay was comfortable. One of... More

The location of the guesthouse was peaceful but had not much more than that to recommend it. It was simply a convenient place to spend the night before our last day of driving and seeing the sights along the way to Akureyri to catch a plane back to Reykjavik. We had a spacious, clean room on the ground floor of... More

Stórulaugar is located in the small settlement of Laugar, 25 mins away from the areas Mývatn and 30 mins from Húsavík, the main attractions in this area.

We stayed two nights here in a triple room with bathroom. The location was great to see Lake Myvatn area and Husavik; close to R1 but not too close so still quiet. There was no shared kitchen (like in most of the guesthouses in Iceland) but there was a restaurant in the main building and tea/coffee maker in the room.... More

This guesthouse is in the middle of nowhere with the only amenities being the N1 gas station/restaurant, a few kilometers away. The pluses of such a place, as can be expected, are the peace and quiet and the beauty of the surrounding area. We had a pleasant stay here and especially enjoyed the hot tub just outside the guesthouse. The... More
