Good place
Nothing to complain about the place. Only problem is that they do not answer the phone. I tried to call them, for 2 days, because I forgot my power bank in my room. They never answered. I even don't know if they found, as I can't talk to them. The food is amazing!

Great hideaway!
We stayed in the downstairs room which was clean and comfortable. It is literally in the middle of nowhere which was our aim, so we were totally pleased with the whole experience.

Stay here to relax
The hard part was finding it. Paper maps & google map directions not quite adequate because of the lack of good road sign posting. But the views were gorgeous, the owners nice & the breakfast buffet was very nice.
Doreen, us2 night trip with friends

Ideal for group of friends with car
Very clean and comfortable for group of four girlfriends staying two nights. Planned in advance to prepare own had all the necessities. Suggestion to hang a second mirror somewhere as the available one was in the bathroom, which with four girls was usually occupied...travelling companions were attempting to put in contacts with make-up mirrors. Proprietors were welcoming and responded quickly to any questions. Would return/recommend to others.

Out of town guesthouse. Clean and cozy
Far from everything, which is good and bad. Clean and comfy. Typical Icelandic breakfast. No kitchen access unless you book the suite downstairs. Everything was great.

Nice place, clean and well kept.
Nicely decorated inside, a little out of the way for the drive we were taking but had a nice stay. Breakfast not included so can't speak for the food.
