Nice guest house in the Selfoss area
Nice guest house near Selfoss. We stayed one night after visiting the Golden Circle and before travelling towards the east of the island. Very reasonably priced for Iceland. We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was good too. Breakfast was OK

We stayed at one of the three cottages. Although you got shower and bed in there but a bit small size. Breakfast buffet was amazing , lots of choices and fresh made waffle.
