    Interesting place very off the beaten path. A little too far though for us. Very nice owner. Very laid back. Nice breakfast. Need more towels for the shower area as it’s all one big room for the bathroom and there is only do much the squeegee can do. Lock to the room was broken so you couldn’t lock the door but hardly anyone was there so it wasn’t really an issue.

    Evitare assolutamente la cena e la colazione

    Le stanze nuove sono abbastanza pulite e il letto comodo.Gli spazi comuni non sono molto puliti, non puliscono il tavolo tra una cena e l altra. La cena vince la medaglia d oro per la peggiore della mia vita, un pezzo di filetto di pesce surgelato fritto con tanto di olio sgocciolante con 2 patate arrosto fredde per la meravigliosa cifra di 25€, ovvero una presa per i fondelli in piena regola! Islanda è cara ma per 25€ si mangia sempre un piatto più che decente. La colazione scarsissima e di pessima qualità la peggiore di tutte quelle che ho provato in Islanda. Infine se dovete dormire qui evitate a tutti i costi la cena e la colazione.

    Poorly maintained hotel

    We book a triple room for one night stay and based on reviews, we had high expectations for the hotel. However, when we arrived, we soon found out that the reality didn't quite meet our expectations. There were enough parking spaces, but the yard was poorly maintained. Our room was located on the ground floor of the site-building and consisted of two small rooms and a bathroom. Our rooms were clean and beds comfortable, but the second room was a small, damp concrete bunker with no window to open for ventilation. The bathroom sliding door could not be closed, so we had to use the bathroom without any privacy. When we arrived at the breakfast, our first thought was that the breakfast table wasn't ready yet, but soon we found out that was the actual breakfast selection. Besides of the cheapest white bulk bread and few sandwich toppings there was sour milk and granola and brown bananas with one single avocado. For vegetarians, there wasn't much to eat, not even juice to drink.

    Dejligt hotel, med et super flinkt værtspar og hus assistent. De nuværende ejere, havde lige overtaget hotellet og var i gang med at renovere - Hvilket det bar lidt præg af rundt omkring, men en god oplevelse og vil til en hver tid komme igen. Hotellet ligger ca. 15min kørsel i bil fra Selfoss by

    Mysigt, mycket prisvärt

    Hotellet har nyligen bytt ägare, och de nya ägarna är väldigt hjälpsamma och tillmötesgående. Hotellet ligger ca 20 min från Selfoss men väldigt naturskönt, nära foten av Burfell. Rummet hade ingen tv vilket inte spelade någon roll för vår del. Frukosten har allt man behöver, skyr med müsli, kaffe, bröd med olika sorters pålägg, och om man vill ägg och bacon som tillagas vid beställning.
