Norther lights!
This little spot is much cuter than it appeared in pictures. We enjoyed the in room microwave and mini fridge. We also relaxed on the new looking wooden deck in front of our room. In the evening we saw the northern lights off the front deck! Room is small but very new and clean feeling.

simple guesthouse with friendly staff
we arrived a few minutes after the restaurant closed but the owner was able to catch the chef to get us some food. the vatsholt is remote fornthe major part of selfoss, but that's a bit of the charm with this off the beaten path location. i had booked a room with private facilities but ended up with shared facilities probably due to our late arrival. we unfortunately got the room next to the main entrance and between two bathrooms. there was quite a bit of foot traffic in the morning so sleeping in wasn't an option. the breakfast was hearty with cereal, garnola, cold cuts, bread, pickled herring, cheese and waffles. we had two dinners there which were good. lots of local trout from their lake and beef from their farm as well. there was some confusion at our departure as they had only charged us for one night and one night's dinner. we had to go back twice to rectify the bill so they were getting paid the right amount.

Adequate, barely
The hotel was clean and the people very friendly and helpful. The meals were very good, although we thought pricey. Rooms were not at all soundproofed, and kids played in the parking lot until almost midnight (sun sets at 11 in Iceland). Bathroom very small. We had a hard time finding it, and it is like 7 km off of Rt 1. Still, a reasonable choice for the money in that part of the country.

Comfortable
Comfortable stay in a very large room in the house. The service was very good; the property was clean; the food was fine. The location was perfect for the next day's adventure to Hekla.

Exploring Iceland
The rooms are of mixed quality - we stayed in an older room but it was good. Staff were great. Food was great. Enjoy all the animals - dogs, birds, foxes. The best farm guesthouse of our visit to Iceland.
