Exceptional 10.0
My family had a great stay here during our recent visit to Iceland after we did the golden circle. The property is beautiful and located on a horse farm which my 1 year old absolutely loved! The guesthouse is very new (built 3 years ago), and is clean, modern, and cozy. The common area was great to lounge in and we used the kitchen to cook in the evening. Even better was the free breakfast of waffles, fruit, meat, and cereal in the morning. Stay here, you won’t regret it!

Bunk bed fun
Nice and spacious. We had a bunk bed and a double bed in our room. Our 3 year old enjoyed sleeping on top of the bunk bed.

Very clean and updated guesthouse- our quad was a little tight with 2 teenagers, but bunk bed was convenient. The setting is idyllic, with Icelandic horses all around who are very friendly. Extremely peaceful, nice breakfast. Beds are much too soft, only complaint
