    Beautiful views of the night sky and not in the main city so it was dark and quiet.

    Great place in a secluded quiet area. Hans was the best host, he couldn’t be nicer. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms are very nice. They even have a geothermal jacuzzi. Would definitely come back

    This was our second time here. I will stay here again. Small motel, located near the things we were touring. Staff was friendly, under new management. And I wish them the best and great success.

    I could have not found a more warm accommodation for the first hotel on my trip. The couple was effortlessly welcoming. When I was leaving the male manager helped me with wind maps of the island to understand the problems I might encounter. The hot tub was lovely and the breakfast was vast. The managers will cook you bacon and eggs if you want; I am vegan and found the spread more than enough for my needs. When I come back to Iceland, I will be booking this for years to come.

    What a great place to stay! Easy to find and in a location close to so many things to see. The room was small but extremely clean and functional. The bathroom was udated and nice. The lobby area is a great place to sit and relax. Breakfast was included and wonderful! We spent a long time talking with the owner. He was a wealth of information and so very nice. Don't hesitate to book this. You won't be sorry!

    The shower in our room needs some cleaning and/or updates. Was very happy that breakfast was included. I thought that there was a restaurant onsite by the advertisement but there was no evening meal offered. Very pleasant owners. Enjoyed our one night stay.

    Peaceful

    It’s a secluded spot and blissfully quiet. The room was a little tight but was clean and the bed was comfortable. They have a nice breakfast buffet included. The staff are super friendly and attentive to your needs.
