The location is awesome, just off the main road, on a little hill. We stayed in a separate wing of the main house, newly built with two suites. The decor was lovely, everything was comfy in the room. The only downside was that we could hear the people in the room next to ours very clearly... There was not much...

Perfect guesthouse while visiting southern Iceland. Arna was the perfect hostess and an incredible cook. Be sure to reserve your place at the dinner table ~ well worth the money and our favorites meals of the trip. The staff were friendly and helpful (a sudden storm closed down Highway 1). Everyone who stayed at this guesthouse seemed at ease and...

Felt straight at home when arriving at the guesthouse, being greeted by the nice woman who managed the guesthouse. We unfortunately arrived after the kitchen had closed and had to leave again early in the morning before breakfast but that did not stop the lady of the house to accommodate us and making sure we were fed, thank you for...

At Hrifunes there is a great sense of community. It is in a beautiful location just a bit off of the ring road. There is a great common area with tea and coffee. It was great to sit and chat with other travelers about their journeys. Breakfast is all around a big community table and everyone was very friendly. The...

I have been to the guesthouse twice and both times were excellent. The rooms are lovely, the food is amazing. Hadda Bjork Gisladottir is the best of hosts - the guesthouse is exactly what it would be if it were mine. I highly recommend the guesthouse- it is in a great location for visiting the east, south and center of...

Was on a solo trip and was welcomed by the host very warmly. Had a great stay and managed to catch the northern lights right outside the house (the host announced it and all of us rushed out)! I also paid for dinner.. it was some lamb with sauce and it was tasty! Highly recommend the place although it might...

What a treat! I stayed here for 2 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the community farmhouse type of setting, and excellent breakfasts and dinners. I stayed in one of the rooms in the main building, sharing a bathroom with one other room. What a great bathroom! This guesthouse is out in the countryside, on a gravel road, which adds to the...

By far the best guesthouse we stayed at in Iceland. Arna was so helpful, kind and accommodating. When you think of a cozy place to call home base, this is your go-to. Cozy and relaxing are the perfect words to describe our experience here. Thank you to the whole staff for just an awesome, icelandic experience. Great breakfasts, clean rooms,...

This B&B is a great place to stay for a couple days. The location is exceptional with great views down a hilly area overlooking a large body of water. Lots of day trips within reach. This B&B also has a great common living and dining room with an awesome atmosphere. Everyday you can meet others that are exploring the region,...
