The rooms were great. Large and clean. The bathroom even had heated floors. The food was great and best part was that it was served by the owners. The owners treated us like family and gave us many suggestions on where to visit in the area.

We arrived late and the owner could not have been more gracious. She brought to our room, upon a late arrival, a basket of bread, cheese, yogurt and water to make certain we didn't go hungry. The room was spacious and immaculate, the owners were Great !

A very nice and comfortable apartment a couple of minutes walk up the hill from the main road. Like a lot of Icelandic towns, the names and signs are a bit confusing but it's a small enough place to be able to find it easily in a car. Really comfortable beds and equipped kitchen, there is a supermarket and also...

We spent 10 days in Iceland and stayed in different places. It was a great experience overall. However this guesthouse and it's Husband-Wife owners were great Host-Hostess. They left a special mark on us. The guesthouse was comfortable , cozy and we just wished we could have spent more time here. Thank You for having us.

My wife and I stayed in a mix of lodging types throughout our 10-day trip in Iceland. Herring House was simply the best. Clean, sharp, comfortable (great bed), and it seemed very new. We also had an amazing view from our room/bed. The town it is based in also has several solid eateries to enjoy. The bathroom was the only...

Two houses a short walk from each other. Both are just a couple of blocks up the hillside from the main street. Can't say enough about the friendliness of the owners. We arrived late and they called a restaurant to make sure they would stay open to feed us. The breakfast room was so beautiful we didn't want to leave

Only stayed one night, would have liked to stay more. Host recommended Harbor Cafe for dinner. Wonderful fish. Breakfast was at Herring House #2 down the hill. Two minute...

The guesthouse is freshly renovated, with comfortable beds, a nice washroom, and modern kitchen. There is a "guide to Siflufjordur"-type book in the main area, which is helpful for navigating the town and recommending local things to do and places to eat. Breakfast was great, and we sensed host Thorir's passion for his country and town. He was eager to...

We booked Herring House 1 on Booking.com and showed up to an empty, locked house around 530 pm. Rang the front bell 3 times to no avail and had to go into the village below to get help at the museum as we are from overseas and don't have a phone. The owners came by to meet us at the...
