    We had a lovely little cabin with a little birch woods outside of our door. Some reviews complained about the size of the beds.....well, there is a single bed a little larger than a twin size with a small single bed bunked above it, and another small twin bed on its own which was plenty big enough for me and was very comfortable. The cabin was nice a warmly comfortable and had microwave, 2 burners, a fridge, sink, pans and dishes. The only problem we had was we fried burgers because we needed a quick meal and it set off the smoke detector. I rarely fry at home anyway, but if you do fry it is best to leave the door to the cabin cracked open! At least we knew the alarm was working! Best shower we have had in the country in our 11 nights here, even though they were all good. Free laundry by reception. They also offer a breakfast for maybe 1500ISK but we did not know this and had already fixed our own. Conveniently located, easy to find, includes a big campground if you visit in that season. Too much light around there to see the aurora though...would have to travel further out into the country for that.

    Cute cabins, no housekeeping

    This guesthouse is a collection of cute cabins, each with a tiny kitchen and a private bathroom. The cabins are warm and comfortable. The service is a bit lacking though: there's no housekeeping. I've stayed for 3 nights and didn't get any new towels or shampoo and they don't even empty the garbage.

    Cute little cabins, perfect for my sister and I. Our cabin had a small kitchen with some pans and kettle. We had a bunk bed & a single bed which fits 4 so we had a lot of space for us two. Friendly staff highly recommend.

    Lovely, small guesthouses in a quiet location. The hosts are very helpful. They sell hand-knitted items and the prices here were less expensive than anywhere else in Iceland (and I checked throughout all our stops on the Ring Road). I am extremely pleased with the quality of the items I bought and wish I had purchased more!

    Very relaxing cottage stay

    The wooden cottage was warm with home feel decorations. Room has fridge, microwave and stovetop to cook simple meal. Owner's dog called Modes very cute and clever, he greet me outside my cottage in the morning:)

    Basic but comfortable and great location.

    Good price and got what we expected. Place to crash in the evenings whilst exploring the fantastic scenery nearby. Late check in was appreciated. One annoying feature was that the hobs were very weak and not possible to cook on (took over 15 mins on full power and still water had not boiled).

    Great location and easy to find. Cabin was warm, cozy, and clean. Staff was kind and accommodating. They gave us a tour of the cabin and showed us how to use the heat, hot tub, shower, etc.
