      Our room was on the ground floor and the noise from a coach party waiting to go into the restaurant for breakfast woke us up. They were really noisy! Not the hotel's fault but if I were to stay again I would ask for a room away from the restaurant and common lounge area!!!!

      This property is a family run horse farm. The hostess was friendly, the rooms were clean and it was a great access point for touring the Vatnsnes Peninsula.

      Horse and a room

      It's family owned and runs a side gig of horseback riding. But there's only one trip a day, this is more novelty than riding so if you're advanced you might get bored. The water smelled like Hrevir but no fault of the owners, it's just water sometimes smells like that in Iceland. Regardless my wife refused to shower because of it. It is a guesthouse so it does have shared amenities, including the bathroom. Great variety at breakfast.

      Horses & Breakfast

      This hotel had the friendliest staff of any we stayed at. They gave us the advice to leave Ring Road and take Arctic Coast Way, and also told us to skip a toll tunnel up north. It was the best breakfast of all of our hotels, too. They let us see the horses and had a friendly Icelandic Sheepdog.
