We stayed here for one night during our stay in Iceland. We'd had a really bad experience in a hotel in Reykjavik the night before and I was dreading checking in to here just in case it was the norm for Icelandic hospitality, it wasn't. We were met by a lovely man who took payment for our room and gave...

We stayed here in a camper van for one night on the last leg of our tour of Iceland early October. The campsite had some sheltered areas where we parked the van as it was lashing with rain and strong winds. We had a peaceful sleep and there was a lovely sunrise the next day. Facilities were close by. Showers...

We stayed in a Triple room cabin for 2 nights. And the cabin was clean and super cute! There's a tiny self-equipped kitchen with a tiny cooker inside and to be honest, for a budget trip in Iceland this was VERY good value for money. Sometimes the Wifi doesn't work inside the room, so for best reception it's better to...

We camped here with an RV on Sept. 17. Nice campground: flat stone pad for RV, electric, dump station for toilet cartridge, fresh water fill up, sinks, bathrooms and shower house. Great experience!!!!

We rented a cottage even though it was just the 2 of us for one night. It was awesome and we only regret that we couldn't stay longer since the cottage was great. There was a hot tub (you have to fill it yourself), a lovely deck and a nice sitting area. The rooms were on the smaller side, but...

We got a good and convenient camping spot here. Wifi was great. However the washer/dryer was broken and the communal kitchen area was packed. We didn't realize how in town it really was, so it was a little loud right next to a main road.

Overall this place was good value for money considering the prices for accommodation in Iceland. Located in a good location. Breakfast was good - especially the waffles (they have fresh batter and a waffle iron for you to make your own batch). The water smells of sulphur but this is characteristic of the area - you get used to it....

We were really disappointed to find out upon arrival that we had to pay 45 € extra for having 2 people even if we had booked a double room (cottage). Very misleading pricing. The initial price was 75 €. Also the breakfast was not included in the price. With this said, the value for money is not in place and...

It is always difficult when people doesnt understand what they book and like in this case have to pay more than they expected in the beginning. When booking a room single people can book double room and mark as one person.. Then they get discount from the double room price. Price for double room is 120 EUR and price for...

we stayed in one of the cabins. It was very quiet - only heard neighbors for a bit. This place has a hot tub which felt fantastic. we sat and talked with other campers for a long time and totally enjoyed our stay. would recommend to others - off the main street and quiet.

We camped here with our tent for 2 nights. The ground was not too hard, the staff was really friendly and the big clean kitchen/sitting area came in very handy! And they have a really cute cat :) It was the cheapest camping we had in Iceland but definitely the best.
