“Top notch guest house, clean, good amenities, ideal location, lovely host.”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I was a bit skittish about staying in a guest house - sharing bathrooms and mealtime. But, I would do it again, and hope to. Lovely place. Felt like we were visiting an old friend.

“Homefriendly with very good service.”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This place, which does not feel like a hotel but more like a very cozy home, is perfect not only for couples but also for all big families. With a warm welcoming, good service, big breakfast buffés and the best dinner in a long time, we really felt like home. Just outside the house you have the icelandic horses, a jacuzzi and if youre lucky you even have the perfect view for seing the northern lights.

“Marvelous, Memorable, Magical - An experience not to be forgotten...”
Reviewed 8 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We all loved it at Agust's warm and homely big guesthouse. It was the perfect introduction to Iceland and we were very happy that we were staying in the beautiful countryside rather then in the city. We stayed in two cabins in the garden and my son stayed in the guesthouse which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We really enjoyed a violin concert Agust took us to on New Year's Eve and also the most amazing crazy fireworks! He took all his guests to a lovely restaurant, a bonfire and then a hilltop to watch the fireworks at midnight. It was a great New Years Eve and a great stay over all .
We hired a car and drove ourselves but you can also ask Agust to collect you and take you on tours. He provided many useful suggestions to places to visit, an interesting and useful insight into Iceland and the most lovely breakfasts. We had some great dinners there too by prior arrangement - and the most delicious cake. We loved Agust's home, his friendly welcome and his beautiful horses! We hope to return there soon.

Agust was an incredible host and made all 16 of us feel very welcome. His breakfasts were great and he gave us great advice on what to see and do. The guest house was perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It was an amazing trip and Agust and the house was a huge part of making it so fantastic.

“A wonderful experience! Agust was an exceptional host who made us so welcome”

We arrived in a party of 14 friends to celebrate our son's 30th birthday. The house and cottages were warm and toasty, so welcome after a day of standing under waterfalls and viewing icebergs! The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and the showers adequately hot enough. Agust is a friendly, humorous host who looked after us very well. He cooked an evening meal for us on request which was tasty and wholesome. The breakfasts each morning were filling and set us up for the day walking and exploring Iceland.
I would return again to this property as it was very comfortable. The underfloor heating was the best!!!
