Guesthouse Nordursild
Reviewed 26 July 2016

Looks a little odd on the outside, but great inside. Placement on the fjord is beautiful! Nice stroll from town. Room was large, bathroom modern with great shower and thick towels. Dining area was large and had a beautiful, ex-US Navy dining table. Kitchen was a little small for how many users there are. The outside oddities charm you in the end. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Loved being able to watch the fjord change moods with the weather!

This guesthouse, a former fish processing plant, looks rundown from the outside but once you get inside you realize how charming it is. The outside comes complete with artistic graffiti and views of old fishing machinery. The inside is clean and comfortable with nice size rooms. The cost of this guesthouse is a real deal. Breakfast is not included so we ate at an N1 gas station in Egilsstadir. We had eggs, toast and a pile of bacon for 1500 ISK ($12). Coffee is 400 ISK. Overall a good filling breakfast.

A strange looking place which really does bring the old saying don't judge a book by its cover to mind. We were greeted and shown the kitchen and the communal area. The inside is very modern looking and the room was very nice with a comfy bed. The shower and toilet facilities are shared between all the rooms in the block. In the morning the owner had a chat with us about the area. He was very welcoming and friendly. He got us to try some of his homemade bread which is baked for 10 hours. It was really good. This place is definitely worth a visit I for one would be back again.

Located about 1km out of town, this place looks pretty weird when you first get there. It looks run-down from the outside, and sits among a bunch of old factories, but it's actually a really nice place to stay. It's right by the water with great mountain views, and they have a really nice kitchen/lounge area with stove, convection oven, microwave, sink, jug, pots, utensils and crockery. It was warm, there are blankets on the couch, and the people who run it are lovely.

Room Tip: Lake-side rooms have mountains views.

When I first pulled up to the Guesthouse I was wondering what I had got myself in to, but that all changed very quickly! The buildings are covered in strange but very unique and somehow suiting graffiti, providing a great contrast to the pleasantly finished interior of the buildings. The host was very friendly and helpful in suggesting sights to see. The best part to me was being right on the water, and sitting out in the dark away from town lighting enjoying the northern lights or the beautiful sunrise on the mountains across the harbor while enjoying a coffee in the morning. And to top it all off, very affordable!
