We were impressed with the entire experience at this guesthouse. Scenic, authentic, atmosphere, landscape. It was the best place during our two weeks in Iceland. The proprietor was warm and chatty when we arrived. He showed us around and invited us to breakfast the next morning. In addition to this, he gave us a map of Akureyri and pointed out...

What a location. What a room. What hospitality! The guesthouse overlooks the harbor at Akureyri and has the most comfortable sitting room to enjoy the views. The owner has renovated an older house into this gorgeous inn. There are acres to roam and a lovely patio to sit and just admire your good fortune at finding this place with views....

The room was great although a bit small (but this is Iceland - the rooms are small) with a nice view. The location is 10 minutes from the center of town where there are quite a few restaurants. Breakfast was good! The owner's English makes it very difficult to communicate...

Stayed here for two nights and loved it. Cosy and friendly in the most gorgeous setting overlooking Akureyri. Within day trip distance of Godafoss, Detifoss, and of course very close to the lovely town itself. Reccommend highly!

The guesthouse is situated on a hill, there is really wonderful view on Akureyri. A bit far from Akureyri, but the views really compensate it. The bed was comfortable, everything was clean. The room looked new and was very cozy. The showers are shared, but there is a toilett in the room! Very practical. The breakfast simple but good.

We had a very nice stay in this guesthouse which is located in the hills. We slept in a spacious room in the corner of the house, just perfect. The owner seemed a bit grumpy, but he was actually very kind and helpful. So was his wife. We let them do our laundry, which was a bit expensive. Breakfast was...
