    Small cabin, no staff on premises

    Nice little cabin but we didn't get the correct beds, 2 twins and a double, like the website indicated. There is no staff there, so you need to go in the bigger building, follow the directions for check in

    The cottage is a good spacious wooden one-bedroom house, good for a family of 4 like mine. A kitchenette is provided with microwave, fridge, electric stove. Check-in is done by getting the key from the coded box. The location is nice, about a kilometer from Route 1 near the mountaintop. So, it is hidden from strong wind. Minor bugs, which can be easily fixed by the management: (1) I was emailed that my cottage is #5. Actually, it is #105. (2) The strict check-in from 4 to 9 pm is claimed. It is unclear why late check-in is prohibited taking into account the above-mentioned coding system with the key. The only explanation is that it is difficult to figure-out in darkness what cottage to approach. To eliminate the no-after-9pm check-in restriction, it is sufficient to place the additional road sign in front of gates and to have neon cottage numbers visible in the gloom. Definitely, the email should notify the guests about the darkness for late check-in and the necessity to have a light in order to take the key from the coded box. (3) The doors are screaking, which is bad for night use of toilet. Adding a bit oil can help. In general, I recommend this cottage system to travellers.

    Do NOT stay here. The staff is awful, the bungalows are not as described nor are the amenities. This place and the staff are awful. It shouldn’t even be on Expedia.

    This property was a little disappointing. First of all, if it comes up in a search for a hotel near Vik, don't believe it... it's not. It's about a 30 minute drive away. However, on top of that the place is ok. The cabin that we stayed in was ok, was nice that it had a kitchenette, but some of the cabin needed redone. No WIFI and very limited cell data on the phone. The biggest issue I had tho, was the communication with the management company. I never received info on how to check in (no front desk). I did eventually get in contact with them. In the instructions, they REPEATEDLY stated that checkin needed to be by 9:30 pm and that there was no after hour check in... Well, the check in is a lockbox. We went out of our way to cut our adventure short that night to get there by the check time. VERY DECEIVING. This was the most expensive place that we stayed in Iceland and the most frustrating. Honestly, I wouldn't stay here again. I don't recommend that you do either.
