Just returned for Iceland on our adventure driving around the country and stayed at Saeluhus for 2 nights. The apartments are just gorgeous. They are only a couple of years old but they look like brand new. Everything was lovely there..especially the view from the balcony. Everything is fairly close by so if you chose to cater to yourself and cook in..no problem. You have all the dishes and kitchen utensils you need at the apartment. It was really, really nice to sit out on the balcony overlooking the fjord in the early am with my first cup of coffee. Beds are very comfortable..everything was spotlessly clean!! What a great choice!!
Nice comp is that they do have a 24/7 laundry facility here (which is free if you are staying here)..they even provide the laundry soap. The Saeluhus is up quite a hill so if you aren't adverse to walking it's a good hike (of course you wouldn't have the gorgeous views if you weren't up high). Free WiFi was a big plus and worked like a charm. Nice flat screen tv in the room with quite a few channels to watch if you want to. So much to see there and the surrounding areas. My only regret is that we only stayed for 2 nights...one more night and I definitely would have made the trip to Grimsey Island..but oh well..next time. The town boasts an airport which I will definitely keep in mind when I return. One of our party flew out of there back to Reykjavik as he had to leave early. What a flight that must have been!
While we stayed in the apartments..my nieces and 2 others stayed in one of the cottages. How wonderful they were! Just perfect. Big living room and kitchen..and all utensils there too, full sized refig, dishwasher, room to sleep 6 (at least)..wonderful balcony with a hot tub. They were extremely happy staying here. Oh and the the cottages also have a washer and dryer in them..sweet!!!
Great place to stay! I will be staying here when I return..couldn't ask for anything nicer!
