We stayed 3 nights to use as a base for touring the locale (Jokulssarlon, Stokksnes, etc), and were impressed with the quality of this budget accommodation. A working farm, the views from the cabin rooms are stunning, and the rooms themselves are quite spacious and very comfortable and quiet. We also were impressed with the dinner menu and the food,...

this was the closet place we found near our glacier trekking place that was within our budget. it's a working farmhouse which makes it pretty off the main route, but the view and the night sky is gorgeous. we had booked two rooms in the main building with shared bathrooms, and it was pretty challenging having to wait for your...

The guesthouse is situated in a great spot with wonderful views all around. It was very convenient for me to get to my glacier hike the next morning. I drove all day from the airport so I was tired and appreciative that they served dinner. The free breakfast was also very nice! I stayed in the main building on the... More

This was the closest available B&B we found near Jokulsarlon but it was a good 15-20 mins drive form there. The guesthouse is a working farmhouse and it was quite an amazing experience to stay there. You have to take a local road off of route 1 to get to the guesthouse but it's pretty easy to find. We had... More

Had a pleasant stay here, although the room was a bit small,the house was warm and the food,both dinner and breakfast was excellent. Can recommend the farm reared lamb. The views from the house are superb.

Located a fair distance off the road, this small hotel with spectacular views was just what we needed after a day of driving and hiking. We also ordered dinner here and were served by a lovely young waitress who was super friendly and helpful. The dinner (and breakfast) were excellent, especially if you like either fish or lamb. This is... More

The guesthouse is a bit further than Jokusarlon and Skaftafell than we would have liked (that is why we were there), but it is a gorgeous location and the rooms are simple, but comfortable (think Ikea). The restaurant on-site was okay - dinner was a bit overpriced, but that is not only common in Iceland, but we were so grateful... More

We stayed in one of the rooms in the newer addition which was a bit more private and included a private bathroom. The room was comfortable and had a lovely view. We really enjoyed walking freely around the farm and visiting all the baby lambs.

I spent just one night in this guest house located around 25km from Hofn, in the southern Iceland. The guesthouse is located 5km off the road so it might be difficult to find when arriving late at night as I did. Owners are very helpful and even if you arrive late they leave a note and the room key in... More

There is nothing wrong per se, with Nypurgardur. I chose it because I wanted to be nearer Jokulsaron and Skaftafell than Hofn. However, although it is remote it isn't quiet ( more to follow) and it is a pain for mealtimes. The only dinner option on site is well over £30 per head for an average home cooked buffet and...
