Small guesthouse with about 12 rooms on a working horse farm. All of the rooms have a wonderful view and outdoor space for relaxing. The food was amazing for both dinner and breakfast. The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful.

Stayed here one night in room #1 which is closest to the reception house. The views are amazing and you can see many Icelandic horses. The staff can make some very helpful recommendations on what to do in the area. Dinner was good but very pricey - no big surprise in Iceland. Breakfast had all the basics and even horse...

We stayed here as part of a ring road tour at the tail end of the Winter season...and it was THE BEST place we stayed at. I travel quite a bit and this is THE BEST lodging I've stayed at in Europe (thank you, Nordic Visitor!!). The view from our room was spectacular. Honestly, I could've just stared out the...

Hofsstaðir stands out for its warm, friendly service, its comfortable rooms, and for its beautiful setting with sweeping views at the bottom of the fjord Skagafjörður. The restaurant attached serves outstanding meals. The family that runs this guesthouse cares and it shows.

The matron was friendly and courteous. She gave everyone a knock at 9pm if their lights were on to advise that northern lights were going. It was right above our head! The room was spacious although less heated then others I'd stayed in and the bathroom had next to no shelves and open shower meaning the floor got wet. Dinner...

This is where my husband redeemed himself after driving me through the middle of nowhere for over 3 hours to get to this town and Guesthouse. The only place that had a room available after 11pm at night. The manager on duty was at home sleeping when we called to inquire about a room, she came in just for us...

The cottages of Hoffstadir sit on top of a ridge with amazing views of the estuary. In the morning the horses are there and in the evening the sunsets are incredible, even in May at 11pm. Our cottage # 4 was spacious with 3 individual beds. Two terraces, one towards the estuary and another at the entrance with views of...

Absolutely beautiful views of the mountains and fields. The most comfortable beds and pillows throughout our whole trip! Very friendly staff. Independent restaurant with no set menu, but wonderful food.
