We stayed here our first 3 nights in Iceland and it couldn't have been a better choice for us. The owner, Jona Margret, was very friendly and welcoming and her breakfasts turned out to be the very best we had in all of Iceland. When she asked what we wanted to drink in the mornings, I asked about hot chocolate...

We stayed in the guest house for 3 nights. It is very convenient, countryside but not too far from Reykjavík. We did not have a car, so took a cab twice from Reykjavík, paid 6000 ISK, what is reasonable. And was not a problem for the touristic attraction people to pick us up from there, so close it is. (horse...

The out side of the place was not like its inside..the somewhat broken fence hid a very cosy guesthouse. Room was good, bed was great. Kitchen facillities, good free coffee. We somehow misunderstood that breakfast was a possibility. It seems that we missed! It is a bit far from reikjavik, not a substitute to staying in town.

Very good place to stay. The owners are very familiar. We arrived at a day, at which a familiar member had birthday. The owner came to us with a piece of cake. It was very nice and we were surprised. In the morning we got an enormous breakfast with everything someone can wish.

We spent a wonderful first couple of days in Iceland and got a warm welcome in a cute room with a terrific breakfast, especially the pancakes and homemade jams! There was a living room area upstairs by our room which was super cozy and wonderful for relaxing in after walking around Reykjavik city center. Jona was very kind and hospitable;...

Service was wonderful, rooms were basic but clean and nice. Kitchen is a bonus for anyone planning on staying for more than a night (which is all I did). The breakfast was great--quite the assortment of stuff, including home-made pancakes (crepes).

We arrived in the afternoon and were warm welcomed. We could choose the room we wanted to have for these four nights. The guesthouse is very clean, with comfortable beds. The breakfast is outstanding, including all one could like to eat. We specially recommend the smoked salmon and the herring. The owner is very kind, making all possible efforts to...

We arrived at the guesthouse and were very warm welcomed. The rooms were very good and especially very clean. The kitchen was also very clean and easy to use for cooking. It’s also a plus to have a toilet on the ground floor and at the first floor. Regrettably it was still too cold for the hot tub so it...

Stayed there for one night around easter. Central Reykjavik reachable by car within 20 minutes. Newly refurbished house with kitchen (free coffee, tea and pasta) and living room. Warm and clean rooms. Extremely freindly owner, who also serves an excellent breakfast (more than you could expect from farmhouse accommodation) and cooks a plentiful dinner for a very reasonable price on...

We stayed (two couples) for 3 nights fall 2012 on our way to USA. It is very well situated for traveling in the south-western part of Iceland. Only few kilometers from Reykjavik. Very friendly and helpfull landlady. Excellent breakfast with many local Icelandish dishes. Gladly recommended. Hans Hansen, Boerkop, Denmark

“If you are a bad sleeper as I am, go for a room in the back of the house, as the highroad is busy till late. It is not bothering too much, but it is audible in the front rooms, when the windows are open. (we were lucky to have warm weather while there)”

“If you like to sleep in total darkness, plan to bring eye covers with you. In Iceland, they are not used to have shutters.”

“Room number 4 has a very convenient double plug just beside the table, to plug your laptop. If you arrive by night, park your car to the left in front of the high house and walk to the reception in the low house beside it!”
