This is a very basic bnb but with very comfortable interior. Super love the seal pillowcases! The best thing happened while we're here - we caught the Northern Lights!! P.S. we didn't have breakfast here but they have coffee machine running all day long!

Easygoing hotel with small but comfortable rooms. Slightly over-priced for the accommodation - compared to hotels across Iceland previously stayed in. Breakfast is basic but adequate. Hotel is well placed for Hvammstangi and area explorations. Beautiful restaurant nearby serving tasty food.

This place is basic. We had a triple. Three beds in a small L shaped room. One of those three beds was a pull out couch. No television, no desk, no phone, no hot water boiler. Location is the middle of nowhere. Great spot to see the northern lights though. Seals in the area in the summer, NOT in October!...

We were for one night and after a long way from Reikjavik the owner gave us two tickets for the swimming pool, which is two streets away to relax us. The hotel has a nice breakfast with some local clients and it is not far away to the Seal Visitor Center.

This is a little gem of a hotel with only 10 rooms. Certainly one of our most enjoyable stays in Iceland. The rooms are comfortable with easy access. Ask for a view of the sea when you book. The owner and her daughter are delightful and very helpful. The suggestion to visit Kolugljufur Waterfall on the way thru to Akureyri...

We loved staying here- the staff was extremely welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Our room was simple and comfortable- we enjoyed spending time in the common area with couches, television, games (felt like home!). The location is near seal watching and provides free access to the town pool/spa across the street which was perfectly relaxing after a long drive!! Top it...

The hotel is absolutely closed before 3pm Door locked and no one around If you arrive like us at 1pm, you need to wait until the owner/manager comes at 3pm. We called the number displayed at the door and were told to wait 3pm She also does seal watching with a boat and opens the hotel once she is back...

Yes we usually are closed from arount 12:30 until 15:00 because this is just a small family run Hotel and we some times use that time to go to the grocery store amongst other things. We are also not the ones that run the seal watching. We just went on that one tour since we where not expecting anybody until...

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We drove from Keflavik and stayed here our first night. The hotel is basic, but very clean and well maintained, good sized rooms. As with all the hotels on our trip, the soundproofing between rooms is not the best and you can hear doors opening, but it was very quiet during the night....

This a nice hotel in a nice and quiet little icelandic northern town. Nice rooms and a good breakfast. Nothing more to do than relax and have a walk around. Friendfull staff is waiting for you! If you want to see seals, book your trip at the reception desk!

Thank Carlos B
