I stayed here with my sister for two nights at the beginning of September. Our room was definitely small, but that didn't really bother us much since we were out during the day. The farm setting was great - I loved the friendly dog, horses, and rabbit, though the arctic foxes were super strange! The staff was great and the...

Beautiful surroundings and so peaceful. We stayed in the main house so our room was a good size. It had a jacuzzi tub. It was very quiet and we had a good night rest. We looked at having breakfast but it was your basic breakfast and not worth the price ($18). It is a very family friendly place. There is...

We booked the cottage online. When we saw how small they actually are we arranged to change to a shared room instead which was slightly bigger and the separate bathroom actually helped. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. That really made a big difference for us the location is a great getaway to the surrounding.

Me and my girlfriend stayed there one night on our way to Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands) and what a friendly place. Just a few miles of the main highway the location was perfect for us to spend the night after a great day doing the Golden Circle and the Secret Lagoon at Fludir. We came there around 20:00 on a Monday,...

The guest house is on the farm and the one 3 persons rooms are very tiny. We upgraded to a room in the White house and it was way more spacious there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Free coffee and tea all day long. We had dinner in the restaurant there and enjoyed it. The trout from the...

This is s working farm and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. She was chatty and nothing was too much trouble. Although the bed was comfortable the pillow wasn't and a decent curtain to keep out the light (24hours of light in July) would have been welcome. However, overall it was a welcoming place to stay.

We ended up here because our planned accommodation had been a failure. It was clean and had a good breakfast which included fresh made waffles! We stayed in a family room with a bunk bed for the kids. Did not rent horses or eat dinner but would recommend a stay.

Nice, clean and large rooms; some with a view to Hekla, Vestmanneyjar and Eyjafjallajökul. Tingvellir etc. is about 30-45 minuttes drive away. The nearby town Selfoss offers numerous shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The place is great for families. There are dogs and icelandic horses around and medium-sized playground.
