We were greeted by one of the owners who made us feel comfortable and welcome. The room and beds very very comfortable, however I think they need another bathroom to facilitate that many guests. Breakfast was Perfect. We were there the very first night they were open and everything went very well. We would stay here again

A cosy guesthouse in an excellent location in Hofn. The owners were very nice, I had a good chat with the the man there, he made us feel right at home. Our room was small but we opted for the cheaper room as we were on a budget, but still it was very cosy and the bed was great. The...

My husband and I stayed here when we stopped in Höfn for a night. The best part of this place is that location is close to the harbor and that it's close to a wonderful lobster restaurant Pakkhus. When we first arrived we thought we were in the wrong spot because the hosts are not the young couple on the...

Rented the five bedroom house for the entire family for two nights. House was open, airy, well lit, with lots of windows overlooking the town and harbor. Overall feel was homey and comfortable with nice touches including a record player with albums and board games. Of note, one of the bedrooms had less than effective blackout curtains, tough when it...

While the upstairs at the guesthouse sounds like a good place to stay, the basement apartment was, a basement. The ceiling was low and the room smelled musty. There was a small divider separating the bed from the front of the room. Breakfast for two included two pieces of ham and cheese on a saran wrapped plate, a piece of...
