This was a fantastic Icelandic experience. Magnus, the operator was extremely nice and friendly. When I would be waiting for my excursion bus or taxi outside, he always popped his head out to see if I was ok. His knowledge of the area was also very helpful. The location was my favourite part of my stay. A very short walk... More

I stayes in this guesthouse for three nights on both ends of my trip to Greenland. I loved my little room at the top floor - the bed was very comfortable, the bedding sparkly white, and the room had the view of the main church. I appreciated coffee in the room, since I am early riser. Breakfast was abundant. Magnus,... More

I stayed here for three nights as part of a trekking holiday. This simple guesthouse was clean, comfortable with a friendly owner and staff. Nothing was to much trouble. The bedroom was clean and tidy and the breakfast was really good as was the breakfast room. I will stay again when I next return and wood recommend it to others.

After 2 years away, we found that Snorri's was better than ever. Magnus runs an excellent hotel/guesthouse - and we enjoyed the triple room with en-suite.
