Clean, Good room, and kitchen. Wonderful breakfast in the morning. Note the hot water is geothermal and smells highly of sulfur (though this is likely the case everywhere in the region, just giving a heads up). Other than the cold shower we took, everything else was great!

Amazing location. There are so many natural wonders within a very short driving distance from the guesthouse. But the property is pretty dated. There is very little beyond spartan level facilities. One really really big plus for the guesthouse is the breakfast. The staff is also very accommodating.

The water smells strongly of sulphur. 4 bedrooms (8 people) shared 2 basic bathrooms.

The bedroom was clean and provided an in room sink which was very convenient. The bedding was nice and everything seemed very clean. The breakfast was excellent as well.

8/10 Very good

The staff was very kind and the breakfast was very good. The only things that I did not like were that the wifi never worked and that the location did not have a good variety of places to eat near by. Other than that, the property was fine.

I have stayed before. All fine with check in and my room as before, but the people coming into room 8 next door came late and loud, completely ignoring signs not to use the kitchen after 10pm. Very inconsiderate, woke me up for a long time, crashing about with pans and cutlery. Please Elda make the signs bigger and in different languages as they were German.

No hot springs.
The lure of a hot springs on the property to soak in was the main reason we chose this place over other locations. There is NO HOT SPRINGS. Laundry facilities also advertised. They will do your laundry for you, but you cannot do it yourself. It will cost 2000 ISK. No complaints about anything else. Breakfast add on will be 2000 ISK. It was a good breakfast overall.

Good place with cooking facilities
Enjoyed my stay here. Easy check in. Room was basic but fine with sink. Bed was comfortable. Showers and toilets always available and clean. Despite moving the bed away from the window to avoid the radiator handle, I moved in the night and still hit it.
