Beautiful location at base of mountains, view of ocean, family owned, excellent food and service. The owner is an amazing chef and very nice, gave extremely helpful advice regarding areas to visit on the peninsula. Twenty minutes from National Park that is beautiful to see as well. The room was perfect, no tv's in room, has wi-fi, is extremely peaceful.

Set in a quiet location, easy to explore the surrounding area and towns. The meal was delicious, albeit a bit expensive, however, that's expected in Iceland. Room was fine and if the forecast was better it seemed like a great location to see the Northern Lights.

Amazing place to stay during the winter - huge, warm rooms and extremely comfy beds! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and were so lovely when they found out it was our honeymoon - shout out to fellow Aussie Andrew who was particularly welcoming and great to chat to!

We stayed in a private room at the newly built Kast Guesthouse (the building we stayed in was built in 2014). We loved the location and found Snaefells to be one of our favorite areas to drive and sight see. The peninsula is supposed to be a great place to watch for the Northern Lights, an area frequented by clearer...

Just OK place. Clean and new but very industrial prefab box rooms. No atmosphere, oh except for the fantastic mountain located just feet behind the hotel. Others were impressed by the friendly foreign staff, they were good, but we were not with the total lack of Icelandic people, but this was the case in many of the places we stayed...

We enjoyed staying in this simple guesthouse which is run by staff from around the world. I generally like to stay in locally family run guesthouses, but this was ok because the staff were so friendly and they enjoyed working there. We enjoyed the breakfast and dinner there also. Fish was a little tough. Oh well. My complaint was there...

We spent one night at Kast. The atmosphere is friendly and easygoing. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. Bonus points for the comforter being long enough for a tall guy. Breakfast is buffet style and had a variety of cereals, different breads, jams, cold cuts, cheese, juices, tea and coffee.The staff made sure things never ran out even when...

We stayed 3 nights at the Kast Guesthouse. Our room was simple, clean and quiet. Breakfast was simple and easy - everything was refilled quickly and the staff are friendly. The eating area can get quite crowded. We enjoyed their dinners. Prices were not bad compared to some places in Iceland, especially their desserts. The desserts were homemade and delicious....

Most travellers stay one night on their whistle stop tour of Iceland. We stayed 3 nights and found good hiking, horse riding and sights minutes away by car.

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay here. There was a problem with a change we had tried to make to our reservation, and the folks at the guesthouse were incredibly kind and accommodating. Great location to explore the peninsula and see the northern lights. We'll be back!
