Great little BnB
The place was in a great location between farms and mountains. This made it a perfect quite and peacful stay. The rooms were clean and so were the bathrooms. Best part was the bedroom which was spacious and also had a sink with a mirror which made things easier in the morning plus had a source of water. The beds were decent enough and kept us comfortable. The host was nice but not very friendly, but we had no issues in anyway. She made great breakfast which was included in the price. This place is slightly on the expensive side of the spectrum but might be worth it given the convenience.

A great local BnB
A great little BnB. Note, toilet/bath are shared. Breakfast is served the kitchen, where Thora (host) is ready with oatmeal, waffles, cereal etc. The house is not in a village and a little secluded, but a super BnB, if you need a place to sleep when exploring the glaciers... Wifi was fine.

Thora was a great host and the accommodations were great as well. A very wide spread of food for breakfast, and it saved us a pretty penny considering the cost of eating out in Iceland. Great location r Roth beautiful scenery. Highly recommended.

Lovely place to stay ! Felt like home !
Wonderful stop in this lovely Bed & Breakfast. It really felt like being in Iceland with the locals. The owner was adorable and very present, always checking that everything was ok and that I didn't need anything. I loved chatting with her and finding out more about Iceland and the area. She is definitely the best of hostesses ! Nice breakfast area and nice breakfast with homemade products. Great view on the northern lights the night I stayed there ! I would certainly go back there on my next trip ! Thank you for the warm welcome !

한국분이 볼진 모르겠지만 작성해봅니다 1.일화 주인 부부가 너무 좋았어요 정말. 저한테 있었던 일 하나를 적어보자면 숙소에 들어갔을때 차에 이상이 있는상태여서 혹시 가까운 카센터가 있을까 물었더니 카센터는 없지만 남편이 차를 봐줄수있다면서 필요하면 말하라고 하더라구요.(너무따뜻) 그래서 부탁드렸더니 다음날 체크아웃할때 오셔서 다 봐주시고 안심까지 시켜주셨답니다. 너무 감사했어요!! 2.화장실 다 깔끔했고 샤워헤드가 분리되는거여서 씻기 편했어요. 주인분께서 바닥에 물떨어지는거 조금 조심해달라고 하시더라구요. 비품도 다 넉넉했습니다. 물도 잘 나와요! 3.방 친구랑 둘이 묵었는데 정말 좋았던건 방안에 미니 세면대가 있다는거였어요!! 정말 편하게 잘 사용했어요. 그리고 작은 쇼파도 있어서 너무너무 편하게 쉬었어요 4.위치&들어가는길 정말정말 아쉬운게 딱 하나 있다면 그것은 바로 위치ㅠㅠ 주변에 진짜 아무것도 없습니다.. 혹시라도 저녁에 체크인 하신다면 가벼운 식사거리나 즉석밥정도는 챙겨가시는게 좋을듯해요. 마켓도 없고 주유소도 없어요.. 이전 마을에서 해결하고 오시는게 가장 퍼펙트! 들어가는길이 어두울땐 정말 헷갈려요.. 표지판따라 대문통과해서 들어가신 다음에 두갈래길에서 왼쪽길로 들어가시면 숙소표시(침대모양)가 있는 화살표가 있어요. 그쪽으로 가셔서 길 나있는대로 오른쪽 뒤로(빨간건물뒤로-창고같은?) 꺾어 들어가시면 2층에 리셉션이 있답니다.(뒤로들어가는길은 해지고 가시면 길이 없는것처럼 보여요) 저는 해지고 체크인에다가 구글맵에 길이 다 안떠서 살짝 헤맸어요ㅠㅠ 5.부엌 다른 아이슬란드 숙소에서는 다 취사가 가능했는데 여기만 유일하게 취사가 불가능했어요. 물을 끓이거나 전자레인지 사용은 가능했어요~ 6.조식 아이슬란드 숙소 어느곳에서나 먹을수있는 아침식사입니다~~ 직접 만드신 쨈도 같이 나와있어서 저는 맛있게 잘 먹었어요! 정말정말 너무 좋은 숙소였고 주인분도 너무 친절했습니다♥ 반찬으로 깻잎을 따로 챙겨갔는데 궁금하셨는지 물어보시더라구요ㅎㅎ 혹시 망설이고있는 분이 계시다면 무조건 추천드려요!!!! 가격대비 혜자인 숙소에요!
