about 15 minutes from town, very comfortable beds, fulsome breakfast, with great views of glaciers and horses. highly recommended as a place to stay as you tour around the island. the rooms are typical for Iceland in that they are clean but Spartan

We booked 2 rooms and were situated next to one another in comfortable, spacious rooms in cabins. We overlooked the horse enclosure in the back, which was lovely. Our meals were quite good. There is horseback riding for people who choose to do that.

We stayed two nights here at the guest house and loved our stay. We were received warmly by the proprietors of Arnanes and they explained everything well. Accommodations are bright and clean -- we really enjoyed the warm wood paneling. The bathroom is spacious with a towel heater to boot! It would be nice if the rooms were a bit...

Arrival at the hotel was a little strange - on introducing ourselves at the reception the manager was reluctant to impart any information on dining times etc but stated that we needed to read the information in the cabin! Accommodation in cabins is basic but clean and uncomplicated. Dinner in the restaurant was average and over-priced, even for Iceland. Breakfast...

Dear Guests. Thank you for review. I will for sure stop being reluctant to impart information to my guests. It´s good that dinner was at least average. But the thing about our pricing, it´s difficult for me to explain the prices. I like to believe that we are somewhere in the middle. Concerning our breakfast, I do not agree with...

New rooms are noisy because of lack of sound proofing between following rooms. Very bas speed of wifi the evening. Breakfast standard Notting new to discover. Then good place to sleep but nothing really interesting. Moreover it is very far from the departure of trip of skaftafel.

Pleasant room, comfortable bed and good location. Pump action soap seems to be pretty standard around Iceland so we didn't mind it. It was cold and wet so a walk up to reception for hot drinks was a pain, a kettle in the room is always appreciated. Breakfast, while not fabulous, was perfectly reasonable with everything you could need.

Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Good bedside lighting and plenty of electrical outlets. The units - part of a quite new single floor motel-like building - each had outside entry with parking in front of each door. Breakfast was ample to start the day. We would have appreciated a kettle, cups and coffee supplies in the room. That...

I think this hotel is over priced for the standard they seem to be setting for themselves. Whilst it is clean and comfortable the only toiletry provided was pump action hand soap. We had to ask for hot water to make coffee and were given a kettle for the room but no coffee, the television was not working at all...

Dear Lydia. Thank you for your review. I would like to mention few things from your text. - Your husband asked me hot water and I handed to him a kettle to boil it in your room. I do not remember him talking about coffee, I would have made new coffee if he had asked. I thought he wanted water...

This us one of the guesthouses that had really clean and spacious rooms. The room was really spacious for 3 of us and had a front patio if you want to go for cigarette. Breakfast was basic and simple which almost met the need. Another good thing about this place is that its close to hofn.
