Came in late and decided to have dinner at the guesthouse. Big mistake, the food is very low quality, none of the five in the family could finish their meal, which wasn't cheap either. There was no lock on the bathroom but the room was ok.
I can't recommend this place strongly enough. The staff/family of this family run hotel were polite, hard working and did their outmost to make our stay as enjoyable as they could. The hotel, staff, price and the home made ice-cream all get 5 of 5 stars from me. Excellent value for money. And the view out of our hotel room you can't really put a price on.
This place is great and the owner is so nice. We stayed two nights and the morning we were scheduled to leave a storm came through that knocked out the power and closed all the roads around us. They allowed us to hang out until the roads opened and even found ways to feed us both breakfast and lunch. The hotel itself is in a great location right off the main road and close to the small fishing village of Hofn. Part of the glacier is visable from our room and the food is delicious. Be aware there are not self serve laundry on site, but the staff will do laundry for a fee.
My father and I stayed here during our recent trip to Iceland. We ended up in an odd room that was just by the check in desk. The room itself was fine, it had three double beds and some seating. The bathroom was a cavernous room with no shower and always on light and fan (we had to close the door). The shower was outside in another area around the corner. It was clear that this room had been cobbled together from other spaces. These were minor inconveniences, especially given the relative price of everything in Iceland and the fact that my dad and I are campers used to much less for more. Even better value when you factor in breakfast, which was good Icelandic fare. Pretty view and friendly staff.
The best thing first - the room itself was nice, new and modern as we had one of the new rooms. The rest was slightly less nice. Main reason for this was the staff - friendly all of them but slightly overwhelmed by their respective tasks. Our dinner experience in the restaurant was also not what we expected. Breakfast was ok.
