We spent two nights here in June 2021. We traveled with 1 small child. The rooms was newly renovated and very nice. The kitchenette was very nice and there was a nice supply of cooking supplies and utensils. Of note, check the hours for the grocery store in the town as the hours posted are not accurate. Overall, a great little place to stay in Kirkjufell!

Overall, this guesthouse was a nice place to stay for a night. It's just outside of town and has a great view of the town and mountain, especially at sunset. It was very clean and quiet. We didn't hear a noise all night. Our room was small but fine for one night. We were close to the kitchen so we ate pizza in the common area. We stayed one night, on March 19th, when COVID19 had many restaurants restricted and we could only get takeout. This was also a great night for Northern Lights. One negative..... this guesthouse doesn't allow shoes indoors. You must leave them in the entry at the front of the building, which means boots on / boots off every time you want to go outside to check the sky. I found that annoying. The reasoning is because the tile was new. Tile is very durable and holds up well so I'm not really sure why shoes are not allowed in a business. Our bathroom was extremely small, comparable to a cruise ship. We had 2 adults and our teenage daughter for this stay. We had 3 bath towels, 1 hand towel, and no wash cloths. The sink is so small that when I washed my face, I flooded the floor and since there were no extra towels, I had to go to the kitchen and get paper towels to dry the floor. The bathroom door requires a key just to close the door. That was quite annoying. It took a little playing with it to get it to lock and the door doesn't stay closed without it being locked. Plan your bathroom visits ahead of time so you don't have a 'situation'. haha These 2 things (no shoes, small, annoying bathroom) would have knocked this rating to 3 stars instead of 4, but because the morning manager was so kind and helpful, I put the rating at a 4. Plus, we did get a good night's rest.

Very convenient location to Kirkufell Mountain, Kirkufellfoss, and everything on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. We stayed in a very comfortable room with a gorgeous view of Kirkufell Mountain. The kitchen is very well equipped if you want to make your own meals. There is a grocery store and a few restaurants in the town of Grundarfjordur just 5 minutes away.

This was a lovely place to stay in a very dramatic location. We stayed in a triple room, the beds were really comfortable. I noticed that a previous review commented on there only being one pillow / towel but there were more available upon asking. Everybody there was really helpful and friendly. The kitchen facilities are really good with everything that you could need and plenty of 'essentials' such as salt, cooking oil etc left by other travellers. Most people only seem to stay one or two nights, which seems a shame. We were there for four nights and could easily have stayed for longer. The supermarket is only a few minutes' drive away and there is plenty to see and do in the area - we went horse riding, visited Kirkjufell and the waterfall, went whale watching from Olafsvik (about half an hour's drive), visited Stykkisholmer (volcano museum and library of water) and spent a lovely day in Snaefellsness national park but didn't manage to see everything that we wanted to. This is a great place to stay and we will be back.
