The tranquility of the location and the warm reception of the staff make you feel welcome. In the bedroom the heated radiant floors are very pleasant, but they should be placed also in the bathroom. The country rustic decoration is nice, but the bathroom needs updating. Free wifi is available but no TV. The farm restaurant is simple, slick and...

My husband and I are on a tour round Iceland and stayed here for two nights to see the Golden Circle features (it is in an ideal location for this). The hotel is a family-run farm and I think will probably be our favourite stop on our tour. The rooms were clean, spacious and cosy with good tea/coffee options and...

We really had a great night at this charming guesthouse. You stay in litttle cabins which are super cosy and clean. The views are amazing. Meals in the restaurant are very good and local food from the farm used. I would highly recommend.

We stayed here only one night but it was our top pick after a week around Iceland. The rooms are cozy, very clean, and being on the farm was really special. They get a lot of traffic because of their ice cream --- which is amazing! The breakfast was incredible and the burgers for dinner were outstanding. Great farm to...

Enjoyed two nights here. Food at the restaurant was great - dinner served till 8pm so make sure to get there on time. Rooms are well appointed. Three things to note: room walls are quite thin so can be noisy, door locks are very frustrating (you'll understand if you come to stay) and the breakfast lady just seemed very unhappy...

We stayed here on the 4th night of our week tour of Iceland and absolutely loved it. Despite how busy the Golden Circle is, this was really quint and authentic. Staff were lovely and room was very cute ( little wooden hut!) We ate dinner in the evening here and were able to watch the cows at the same time...

We stopped by this little homemade farm ice cream spot and the lady at the counter was so friendly that she warmed up this slice of homemade pastry they make and put ice cream on top with whipped cream like how I wanted (even though this combination wasn't on the menu) and it was sooooooooooooo delicious! Hope they put that...

Most amazing place to stay in log cabins with great views. Dinner - burgers great, then lovely ice cream all served looking at the cows going about there day. Northern lights made an appearance. Breakfast wonderful start to the day. Milk produce made on the farm. A definite recommendation 👍🏻

We were a group of 6 on a weekend break to Iceland. We arrived at the farm fairly late due to delayed flights but the hotel was fairly straight forward to find, even in the dark and snow. We were welcomed warmly and were just in time for dinner at the restaurant. This was upstairs and over looked the cows...

I visited with my husband and another couple on our fourth night in Iceland. The staff were warm and friendly, the food was excellent and the Farmhouse was cute and quaint. The restaurant overlooks the barn, with a glass window giving you a look into what the cows are doing. So lovely to stay on a working farm, and to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family run business that offer comfortable stays in the Icelandic country side. We offer rooms with great views over the valley and are right in the middle of the Golden Circle route. We also offer a summer time horse rental with trips to a local waterfall, as well as our farm to table restaurant and coffee shop with home made ice-creams. Here people can see into our dairy and watch the cows whilst they eat the products that come from them. Everyone is welcome to stop by here at Efstidalur for a taste of the traditional Icelandic farm life. ... more   less
