We are not the high end travelers. The outside will make you question if you should stay here. Yes do. It's clean friendly and the coffee is great. Breakfast is massive with lots of choices. It is off the Highway and very quiet. Anybody that is used to 4 star hotels should probably pass.

We stayed here the night before our wedding and it was great because it is a place where it is impossible to be stressed. The horses were just outside and the views are great, normal rooms and breakfast but everybody was super nice and we had a lovely stay - perfect for us.

Finally found someone in the kitchen. There is only one bathroom for all the guests. Room was freezing cold when we got there,...

Great guesthouse with fantastic views a couple of miles from the main highway1. I had a huge room and although the showers are shared these are in 4 seperate locking cubicles next to the rooms. Johann the owner was really friendly and very knowledgeable about Iceland. He also provides food and drink if required and was a very good cook!...

“Suggest using Google maps to check directions. North on H1 c.57 miles after Akureyri towards Varmahlíð. c1.5 miles before Varmahlíð - Turn left off H1 (across bridge) onto 759 (Stekkjaflatir), then turn immediately left on 7569 Egilsa. Guesthouse is (c.3) miles along Egilsa and can be seen from the bridge. I used my phone GPS and it was easy to find.”
