This is farm with some cabins for overnight guests. The farm family cooks dinner for guests in a small dinning room off the lobby. (Dinner is optional and extra.) There were two other families besides ours the night we dinned here. We all had the same meal -- Cod. It was possibly the best cod we've had. The food was of the highest quality and cooked simply.

The cabin is fine. The bedrooms are small. There is a kitchenette and a small dinning/living room combo. Not luxury, but very nice.

The setting spectacular. Surrounded by farm -- sheep, cows and horses. Lust green fields and hills. A view of the ocean. A view of the glacier. Good bird watching.

Located outside of town off a side road.

Good service.

It gave us pause before writing a review that wasn't stellar as the family who owns this farm is so hardworking, but one needs to consider this property carefully before booking a "hotel" room that is nearly $500/night with no real amenities. We booked this location three months out as there were so few options nearer to Vik. It's remote. The family cooks the meal they are providing for the evening, with only 1 or two choices and a timed event. The common areas are restricted hours and their children were playing in them when they were open during our visit. There is no coffee service set out or in the rooms. They prefer guests buy beverages only from them, no ice or grocery stores/gas stations in the area. There are no snacks available either. As it was a working farm, we anticipated seeing animals, but there were no animals to be seen within walking distance and our view was of a parking lot. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was very nice. The owner is a good cook and the evening meal of fish was good.

We stayed in one of the Guesthouse cabins for one night. It was a lot of space for the price - 3 bedrooms for the price of one hotel room in most of Iceland. Everything was totally fine - clean, standard breakfast, near a mountain and the water- but I think my expectations were a little too high given the stellar reviews here and in Lonely Planet. It was okay but. It extra special. Our experience was also colored by miserable weather so we couldn't see any of the potential great views. Maybe if we'd been there on a sunnier day we would have thought the place was fabulous.

Spent 2 nights in this place 2 weeks ago. Quite isolated, hard to find if no car, but pretty cool, king size beds, excelent position near to some touristic atractions and fair price for its value. All you can eat breakfast, free tea in your room all day long, bathrooms with all you need, very warm even when the weather is extremely cold - and trust me, when you hear the wind blowing hard on nights is no fun at all!

We stayed for 2 nights, booked via Hey Iceland. The accommodation was fine; comfortable bed, parking, ensuite, tea and coffee facilities, nice hot radiators! Breakfast choices were limited and staff were pleasant but not particularly welcoming, we felt a little awkward at times. But it was a nice place to stay and the location is good for Vik, Glacier, Skogafoss and Black sand beach.
