It was really good to stay there. The breakfast is top with handmade jam, lots of different teas, breads, jams, etc. The views are amazing and it is really clean! I would definitely come back but for a couple of days. People there is also very kind and help you with your trip.

Hosts are friendly, helpful, and jovial. Breakfast was the best we had in our week plus trip to Iceland, from the four different places we stayed. Fast wifi...

My husband and I stayed here one night, our first night in Iceland to start our tour along the south coast. The location is not "in town" (Selfoss appeared to be pretty small), but the area is pretty. The rooms were clean and large, bathroom fine (most will know this, but bring your own shampoo & such - not all...

Nice clean house. I liked that no shoes were allowed inside. The view was beautiful. Rooms comfortable and clean. The breakfast was the best. Delicious bread, herring, butter and jam, and muesli. Really great way to start our day.

Situated about 10km outside Selfoss, this is in a quiet location but with easy access to the main road. Rooms clean and comfortable, and a nice communal sitting area also available. Wifi available throughout. Complimenatry tea and coffee bar provided, and excellent breakfast. Only downside was the price, but that is typical of everywhere in Iceland. Expensive by UK standards.

A happy couple greets you here at this farm turned B and B. Horses close by. Terrific breakfast and the rooms are clean and attractive. This is a great place for your first night on the Ring Road (going counter clockwise). Arrive in Reykjavik, rent your car, visit the Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir, perhaps the Secret Lagoon in Fludir, then...

Bitra B&B is a fantastic place. We only spent the night there before we had to bring our car back to the airport (only ~1.5 hours on the coastal route), but wish we would have stayed longer. The staff were fantastic and welcoming. The breakfast was unbelievable, with a great variety of food items. The location (just outside of Selfoss...

Great location - very close to R1 but not noisy at all. Breakfast was great, many options and very nicely served. We tried the local brown bread with hering-curry made and recommended by the owner and it was lovely. The room was basic but clean and we could darken the window. The shared bathroom was also clean and there was...

Best bed ever. Maybe we were just exhausted, but we had the best sleep here. The house operates very efficiently, and there's a great spread for breakfast. Good bang for the buck. Great location as it is on the hwy 1 ring road. Big thanks to the owners for being so welcoming.
