Many people seem to think this is basic accommodation. The Westfjords are full of natural beauty--fjords, mountains, nature at it's most pristine. What can be more basic than the untouched beauty of nature? The Guesthouse seeks to respect its surroundings. The beds are comfortable, the setting is peaceful. The breakfast is wholesome and simple, the freshly baked bread delicious. The...

Honestly would have to give it a one, but due to remote location, I understand. Watch the Shining before you go. Staff was friendly. Building getting old, needs maintenc, lanolium lifting, paint peeling...etc.

There is something about this Guesthouse that I can put my finger on. None the last I can only highly recommend it. The staff is brilliant, friendly and helpful, the food is very good, the atmosphere very nice and the surrounding area is beautiful. Since it used to be a boarding school one can of course not expect a Hilton...

We went to Núpur for a couple of nights, great reception, I thought the staff was really nice and helpful with information and such. The breakfast was really good and energetic, always freshly baked bread and Lýsi available. Dinner was superior and you can tell the fish is fresh from the fjords along with everything else. Rooms are very clean,...

This guesthoue is in a charming old school house. Good restaurant where the fish is delicious. In 5-10 minutes walk you can find Iceland oldest botanic garden Skrúður, nice beach, and this is great area for walking and watching the birdlife.

Me and my family stayed there for two nights in June and it was a very pleasant experience. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff was friendly. The fact that the hotel is a former boarding school makes the stay different from a regular hotel experience and on the grounds there is an old church and cemetery dating...

Stayed there for two night with my family and it was very nice. There is something different from other guesthouses if you stay in an old schoolhouse with its unique history hanging over and coloring the atmosphere. The rooms are small but nice and the beds very comfortable. The staff was friendly, the breakfast good, and the food excellent; fish...

I wouldn't recommend this guesthouse. It's too far out of the way (across the fjord from Thingeyri). It looks nice from the outside but the rooms are very small and smell musty. The head of the beds are against the heater so I slept at the foot of the bed so I wouldn't hit my head on the valve of...

This is backpacker-style accommodation in a stunning location. The building is an old boarding school and it feels like it still is one. Rooms are as basic as they come, even if you get a private one. A very basic bed, thin bedding, and absolutely nothing else. The 'ensuite' was located across the passage - a good enough bathroom but...
