Travellers' Choice
Lambastadir Guesthouse is quiet and modern, farm holiday guesthouse. It is located in the center of South Iceland, by highway number one, only 45 minutes drive from Reykjavik. The guesthouse is family owned and our special pleasure is to inform our guests about where to go, what to do and to help guests to organize their holidays. We feel our guesthouse perfectly located for those wanting to visit historical places and Iceland´s unique nature, for example The Golden Falls, Geysir, Thingvellir National Park, Landmannalaugar, Seljalandsfoss water falla and Westman Islands. Nearby is the village Selfoss where you can find restaurants, swimming pool, golf course, banks and magazines and Reykajvik City is only 45 minutes drive from the guesthouse. Numerous activities in the neighborhood as horse riding, hiking, fishing, glacier walking, kayak boating, river rafting, snorkeling, bird watching and snow mobile. In the guesthouse are eleven non smoking comfortable rooms with private bathroom and shower. Wi-Fi internet access is free of charge. Sauna an outdoor hot tub filled with warm natural water, excellent for relaxation, are free. The communal dining room features tea/coffee making facilities. Sheep and horses are in fence close to the guesthouse. Gooses, chickens and ducks are free on our farm so our feeling is the guesthouse is family friendly. Breakfast buffet is served in the morning.

We just been on a 3 day adventure trip on the southcoast of iceland ending up as far as the Glacial lagoon and instead of staying there and having to drive 5 hours in the morning we decided to drive 4 hours in the evening and stay the last night at this little Gem before going back to the hustle and bustle if real life and reykjavik. We love it here, the room was clean, cosy and had eveything we could need. The hot tub and the sauna was also just ready, warm and clean perfect for sore muscles. There are no tv´s here which was a first, but we actually like that, we just sat down in the common area and started playing cards and interact. Everything here had the "at grandmothers house" feeling even the wonderful tasty breakfast!

I chose to use the word lovely because you can feel the love and the warm welcome that the owners have for the place as soon as you step inside. It is very clean and well kept. The sauna and jacuzzi are great to finish your day in a warm and relaxing way. The breakfast is amazing with loads of choices and everyday fresh fruits and the most delicious waffles. The house has some great history inside and outside and it is not a problem to drive in one day to Vik from this guesthouse including having a stop and seeing the waterfalls along the road. This was by far the best place that we have staid in during our trip.

We flew into Reykjavik and spent one night in several guest houses along the Southern coast. There were two I would recommend to anyone wanting to really experience Iceland; Lambastadir Guesthouse and The Garage. It was wonderful driving up and being greeted by 4 beautiful Icelandic horses: The room was a nice size, shower hot, breakfast good and the geothermal hot tub wonderful after a day of hiking in the snow. Wish we would have reserved two nights.
