Exceptional 10.0
It's perfect!
It is always wonderful when you can open a window in the night be able to hear the ocean and to walk out on to the farm and see a waterfall coming from a nearby glacier.

Good 6.0
Was there one night
The stay wasn't bad and the staff was very accommodating but the room we were in had mold in all of the corners of the ceiling. The beds were also a bit hard and the wifi went out while we were there. There was also no TV in the room, not a big deal but somewhat aggravating.

Beautiful and Magical!
This was such a great guesthouse run by a lovely couple. Morning breakfast was homemade and delicious. Since it was no where near a city, we were able to watch the northern lights for a solid hour. It was magical!

Exceptional 10.0
Our stay was excellent! Views from our room was beautiful. Our cottage was the perfect size for two people with luggage, beds comfortable, room warm, bathroom clean with even towel warmers. Breakfast was delicious with an assortment of breads, cheeses, eggs, and other fresh items! Breakfast room clean and bright. Nice selection of beer and wine to purchase. I would stay here again without a doubt.

Very Good 8.0
The owner is very kind and welcoming. It's a clean place to stay for a night. The breakfast was nothing great but same basic thing that you get in Iceland. I stayed in a single twin room (solo female traveler) with a shared bathroom. I didn't have any issues with waiting for the bathroom during my stay. Would recommend as it's quite an affordable option.
