This has been our favorite place so far on our trip to Iceland. Lovely country feel and clean, quaint and not all IKEA decorated, and beautiful area for dinner. (A little pricey but was delicious and that's Iceland) - Pic is during dinner

Love the experience of staying at this place. It consists of multiple small homes dotted along the road of a farm. The location of the reception allows for seamless check-in with a restaurant to order food.

Very cool location, perfect if you want to stay near the falls area, glaciers and ferry to westman island. Nice little farm with horses that you can easily pet :-). Staff was very nice. Nice complete included breakfast. Extremely quiet.

Sorry, I don't remember if there was an ATM. We never had trouble using debit and credit cards in Iceland except at a remote lodging place in the west.

Without question no. They do have a bar however and served a very good beer. This may be one of the oddest places I've ever stayed. We kept asking ourselves, now why did we book here? I would consider staying here to see... More
