The Fagrahlid guesthouse was fantastic. The hosts were very friendly. The apartment was large and the view amazing. We were quite happy to have a second night there. In the morning, the owner cooks for you amazing waffles that you do not want to miss. We had the large apartment with 3 bedrooms. We used the hot tub just outside...

We had a nice stay with great views towards Eyjafjällajökull and Heimaey every day. Breakfast was superb, including freshly made pancakes and nice conversations with other guests. BUT: During the nights we never slept well. The beds are much too narrow. I even fell out of the bed on the first night, fortunately hitting the floor without hurting myself. Upon...

Got there when it was already dark, but was easy to find on a good road not far off the ring road. A well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. Wifi was good and free. Hot-tub was good, although slightly cooler than we would ideally like. It was a clear night, but the northern lights only showed very faintly, they appeared...

This is a nice place. The owner is really friendly and provides great service. Breakfast is really good. Location is good for visiting lots of sights in southern Iceland. The shared bathroom is ok, but can be an issue at busy times. Overall we had great stay and would recommend.

Although we only stayed one night we had a fabulous evening, especially since the Northern Lights appeared. It's a fab location miles from the nearest streetlights and great for photography. The hot tub on the deck was a brilliant place to watch the lights from too! The free wifi was a great touch to let us upload photos straight away....

What a special accomodation: We slept in feather-bed and saw the Eyafjallajökull und the Vestmannaeyjar from the breakfast-table. The view is spectacular. The owner offered us tea (beer for the man!) and told us many things about Iceland. We would come back ANY TIME! Best accomodation on our trip!

Six of us stayed at Fagrahlid. All were impressed. We'd only been in Iceland a few hours and I'd already had a load of flak from the family because they weren't impressed with the car I had hired. I think they had low expectations of the accommodation and thus were delighted to arrive to a very warm, large, clean apartment....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you are a nature lover and dream about peaceful place the dream might become true with us here in the countryside. You can start the morning by walking into the green grass surrounding the house, do some exercises and take a deep breath in the pure nature or take a short walk before breakfast. After a long day travelling in the Icelandic nature, you will love to relax in the hot jacuzzi (tub) and enjoy the breathtaking view. During the winter time, you are able to see the northern lights from Fagrahlíð. The possibilities in the pure nature are endless and our personal hospitality and the dog Bella will make your stay with us unforgettable. ... more   less
