Everything about this place is quality. The commanding view of the snowy Siglufjordur fjord from my room was mesmerising. The fully-equipped kitchen has...

They explained culture and traditions...

We stayed in the Herring House for 2 days, having booked before online. Email correspondence was great and on arrival we got a very nice welcome from the owners. A lot of effort has been put into the accommodation. It is modern and well fitted out and there are plenty of tourist brochures provided. Wifi was free and worked well....

My sister and I stayed at the Herring House last week. We loved our room - an apartment, really. We had a double bedroom, a sitting area, and a lovely and well-equipped kitchen. The bath deserves special mention with its heated floor, heated towel bars and a very high-tech jetted shower stall! The breakfast was delightful with delicious food (bread...

This guest house was a break from hotels. The owner was very attentive and accommodating and delivered a breakfast to us that was more than two people could eat. We had a room on the ground level with beautiful views of the mountains. Very nice room with a comfortable bed. A very nice place to stay.

Owner Thorir Thorisson stayed up to greet us when we arrived late after a long drive from Reykjavik. Herring House is a well kept, very comfortable house on a hill in the main part of town.
