Room was clean but just a little tired - broken picture frame, bit of fresh paint here and there wouldn't go amiss, nothing that...

The inn was easy to find and instructions were very clear. The bed was comfortable. I was excited to see the breakfast options! Everything was clearly marked and the choices were outstanding! There were assorted cereals, fresh bread, meats, cheese, and of course coffee and tea.

A really wonderful stay. We stayed for 5 nights. Easy to find and although no check in as such all the information was provided. Loads of info available, free wifi available. Definitely recommended. Very quiet area. Only 10 mins to Reykjavik centre and great links for the N1 route to everywhere.

We enjoyed the comfy beds, small attention to detail that we notice in the house which made us feel at home. The beds in the rooms with Netflix (came very handy when the bad weather hit Reykjavik). Overall we really enjoyed our stay :)

We stayed one night. The host was very communicative and provided all sorts of information about what was in the area and provided recommendations about what to see, eat, etc. We stayed in the Yellow house and the room was spacious and clean. Everything was as listed and we enjoyed a self-serve breakfast, including homemade bread, in the morning.
