What we most loved about Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse were the innkeepers! They were so kind and generous and wanted our time in Iceland to be wonderful--which it was. They had lots of good advice for us about how to plan our travels, even things like knowing that a certain road would be blocked for an hour because sheep were being moved...

Our family loved everything about our stay at Minna-Mosfell, from the comfortable, well appointed rooms, to the amazing views out the windows, the fresh baked breads and cakes each morning, the thoughtful touring advice and maps from our lovely hosts at the beginning of each day, and the warm welcome we received from them at day's end.

What originally attracted us to Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse was it's location out in the country. And we were not disappointed - what a spectacular view from the breakfast table! Nevertheless, the Guesthouse is a convenient 20 minute car ride from Reykjavik. The innkeepers, Valur and his wife Guðrún, were a vital part of our trip. They are hard working, congenial, down...

Short drive from Reykjavik. Lovely farm house with lots of space. Family farm with horses, private parking, wifi, nice rooms and common area, small kitchen with fresh pastries in the morning, and very helpful hosts to introduce you to this most interesting country.

My husband and I stayed in the East Room for 8 days and immensely enjoyed our time there. Gudrun and Valor are wonderful people who make you feel right at home. I felt sad when it came time to leave. Their friendly smiles and kindness will be forever remembered. It really was them that made our vacation to Iceland great!

Our visit in 2014 to Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse was such a wonderful, heartwarming experience that we returned again in 2016, and are counting on our next stay there from California. The guesthouse with spacious rooms is on a farm overlooking low, rolling hills, with meadows and Icelandic horses sometimes in the distance. Co-owner Gudrun enthusiastically takes time to look at our...

Minna-Mosfell was a fantastic place to stay in Iceland. Of the four places we stayed, this was our favorite. We booked two of the three rooms in the upstairs suite (we are a couple travelling with a teen-aged daughter) and found both rooms very clean, comfortable and quiet. Our double room was especially charming, with homey touches. The rooms are...

Gudrun was the most amazing hostess and we were so grateful to stay with her. She was so generous with her information that made our entire trip memorable. We would highly recommend this guesthouse, for the great location so close to excellent riding and hiking the hills out behind the house.
