    Beautiful renovated hotel in old farm

    Beautiful renovated hotel in old farm. Looks brand new, gorgeous surroundings. Large play room with games such as billiard, foosball, big TV. Complementary hot beverages in dinning room. The only tiny issues were no soap in the dispenser in the shower and the shower drain was slow. Other than that it was perfect. Highly recommended!

    Easy and Perfect!

    This was our first stay in Iceland and it set the bar high, we flew into Iceland and right to exploring with little sleep. After a full day of adventures it was time to find our place. The signs made it easy and was just a short drive from Selfoss. The check in process was so easy, thankfully they spoke English. We had one of the cute little cabins and it was exactly what we needed. It’s close to everything but away like a little resort. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was delicious. My wife and I shared the large pizza and were stuffed. Check out was also easy and we were able to grab a coffee for the road. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in Iceland!

    We were very comfortable and it was so peaceful with the horses outside our window. Communication with the property was prompt and they were very helpful as we thought we would arrive after 11PM to make sure we could get into our room. The location was really quiet and beautiful.

    Cozy with a view

    Comfortable stay in a really cute and cozy country guesthouse. Staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. We initially had some issues with the hot water, but they were very prompt and kind in helping us resolve them. The cabins were a bit smaller than expected, but the view was worth the squeeze. Very beautiful property. Would recommend.

    Great place that is has a great out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere feel without being too far out of the way. I loved the horses nearby. We didn’t end up eating at the restaurant at the hotel but it smelled amazing. We loved staying here!
