one of the nicest piece of property in Iceland
beautiful setting- on river falls-nice to hike around. All types of accommodations little motel type rooms- huts with bring your bag and very nice guest cabin with great kitchen that we stayed in- suggest you do your own cooking..dinner was pricey and very bad- like thin dried fish breaded like a disguise- -not a chef in the house! Cold fish and I mean forgot to nuke well fish and chips.Breakfast- book or not was good-usual buffet. Again suggest to take advantage of fine kitchen if you have the guest cabin. Shop for food supplies in Borgarnes.The place was nice -we expected a really nice dinner, Dining room was cute- music records theme in glassed deck view of Falls.

Short stay on our way back to Reykjavik
We stayed a couple of nights at Fossatun's Sunset cottage, the place was tidy and clean, spacious enough foe a family of 4 including 2 teens. The view was fantastic and must be great for watching the northern lights when the weather allows it. Very nice troll and folklore themed walk around the water fall. Definitely one of our best stays in Iceland.

Nice and cozy flat to share. Everything was okay apart from the room was cold (the heating system was broken) and tv didn't work.

Ok for one night
It was a stopover and price was good however, my leg got really itch (could be anything) and water did not drain well in the shower. There was nowhere we could get some milk (we expected to be able to buy some essentials at the reception). My sister's room had no heating and we could not turn on the TV. Otherwise, the rest of the property was really warm. It was okay as it was only one night for us and left the property early morning.
