I had a single on the main floor with private bathroom. The room was thoughtfully decorated and furnished. It had a table with two chairs and a small fridge. Perfect for eating casual dinners in my room. The heating is by radiators, which is handy for drying clothes that get wet in Iceland's frequent rain. The room stayed cozy warm....

The prospect of shared bathrooms didn't fill me with optimism but in fact the bathroom of our 'basic room' was shared by only two rooms. Unexpectedly our two rooms also had a large well equipped kitchen available, very useful given Iceland's eye-wateringly expensive food. Breakfast was self service but an excellent spread. The location is about 10 minutes' walk from...

This was a fantastic Icelandic experience. Magnus, the operator was extremely nice and friendly. When I would be waiting for my excursion bus or taxi outside, he always popped his head out to see if I was ok. His knowledge of the area was also very helpful. The location was my favourite part of my stay. A very short walk...

I stayes in this guesthouse for three nights on both ends of my trip to Greenland. I loved my little room at the top floor - the bed was very comfortable, the bedding sparkly white, and the room had the view of the main church. I appreciated coffee in the room, since I am early riser. Breakfast was abundant. Magnus,...

I stayed here for three nights as part of a trekking holiday. This simple guesthouse was clean, comfortable with a friendly owner and staff. Nothing was to much trouble. The bedroom was clean and tidy and the breakfast was really good as was the breakfast room. I will stay again when I next return and wood recommend it to others.
