Peaceful, family friendly base for touring
Stayed at Vatnsholt for 1 week. We chose it for its convenient location for touring around Southern Iceland. It was wonderfully peaceful, with great views overlooking the lake and the distant mountains. It was very child friendly and we spent many hours in the games room, the playground and with the various animals. The breakfast was also amazing. The only downside for us (budget conscious family with young children) was that there were no facilities for preparing our own food. We knew this when we booked but if I could change 1 thing it would be that. Otherwise - we loved it. Definitely recommended.

Aurora Spot!
Very friendly host, on a very open farm land, it turns out to be one of the popular spots for aurora sighting, 15mins drive to Selfoss where you can find quite a few restaurants

Sister trip- great guest house
My sister & I stayed here after finishing the Golden Circle & loved it. Very friendly & big rec room to hang out. We had a delicious dinner in the restaurant & they include a hearty & tasty breakfast in the am before you head out into the wilderness to explore. The turtle aquarium & aftcan partot made the experience fun. Our room was small, but perfect. A great place to try & see the Northern Lights!
