Absolutely wonderful location and accommodations. Amazing staff that gave us excellent advice on hiking trails. The restaurant here is first-rate. We had lamb from their farm. Outstanding overall.

We were happy with the size and cleanliness of the room. Make sure you get a private bath. They offer dinner and breakfast. Neither are over the top special but they get the job done. The surroundings are beautiful. This was our second favorite place to stay during our 10 day trip around Iceland.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The only disappointing stay
The actual condition of the guesthouse is not as what was shown in the picture. We got the first room from the dining area, ventilation of the cooking smell is very bad. The carpet felt old and dusty. And the walls are thin, you can hear other travellers talking and laughing at night. Lastly it is about 4 - 5km away from route 1, road condition was quite bumpy . Do re-consider if travelling especially in winter.
