We were group of 11 staying for 1 night in the guesthouse. We were so lucky we were the only ones staying there that night so we had the place all to ourselves and we enjoyed it to the fullest :) The rooms are very nice, the only thing that we had trouble with where the windows, it was a little bit hot in the rooms and we couldn't find out how to open them more than tiny bit. Other than that, highly recommend if you want to stay at a good place in the area :)

Pros: Reception was staffed with a lovely person, who spent time answering all our questions and explained the menus at each local restaurant. WiFi was the most efficient of all the hotels we stayed at. Cons: Our room with two twin beds, room #23, was hot (extremely small window that opened), as are most of Iceland’s hotels. It was the tiniest room without space for any luggage. In fact, the room was so small, towels were provided in bags on pegs in the room. There wasn’t room for them anywhere else. Blackout curtains weren’t quite right where they approximated each other edge to edge. The worst was the squeaky bed. Every time I moved, it squeaked. We booked through Orbitz. Is this why we were assigned terrible rooms? If you are traveling with only a backpack, and enjoy feather duvets in warm rooms, this may be your happy place. Sadly, it wasn’t mine.

Cozy, warm and comfortable hotel in quaint Grundarfjordur. We had the room with the a twin and single bed and a attached bathroom. Beds were very comfortable and room was clean. Hotel is literally across from Kirkjufell Mountain and a small, rocky beach. The only issue we had was that the walls are thin and you can hear everybody outside. A shared kitchen and dining room is available.

Good - Location- mountain and sea view room provide great views, staffs are very helpful, room is well heated. Car park is near and sufficient. Can improve - Microwave oven takes so long time in heating food. It might has too low power. No hair dryer provided. Pillow is too thin but I wasn’t thinking of requesting for more pillows.
