Very good location (near the lake and the big church), easy parking nearby and quite neighborhood and nice building. The room was relatively big, well equipped and clean. Breakfast was good, in a local dining room and atmosphere. Overall, nice experience

We had a great time here. Great location,Hosts very helpful, superb WiFi. The 1 bedroom apartment was ideal for our family of 4. We would certainly recommend this place. Couldn’t ask for anymore. We will be back!

We visited Iceland the end of June and stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was perfect for a family of four. The rooms and the main house was kept very clean and everyone there was friendly and helpful....More

We fell in love with Iceland and Guesthouse Galtafell was part of the reason. The rooms we had (family vacation) were perfect for us. They were clean with lovely amenities such as hot water for tea, chocolates, warming towel rack, comfortable beds and great linens....More
