We had a great stay here. The rooms are very nicely decorated and comfortable - great bed, bathroom and shower. Our hostess cooked a delicious 3 course dinner which we had both nights of our stay. Breakfast is good too. The location is great for a mid-point on the South Coast. It's a rural area, so we saw a great...

Friendly, helpfull owners. All 3 rooms really nice and clean. Photos on their website is really what you get. Great breakfast ! Because of our busy program we had no time to have dinner in the nice kitchen area and meet the other guests. Quiet place. Approx 10 min drive from the 209 highway over a brandnew asfalt road. Recommend...

I've stayed with Hadda and Haukur twice at Hrifunes and met up with them a third time in Reykjavik. They are consummate professionals and happy hosts, offering social experience and personable hospitality. I can't say enough about their warmth and generosity. The rooms are modern and well appointed. For those worried at remoteness, don't be. The location is perfect for...

We stayed here because we wanted a b&b type of experience and because we'd read that it's a great place for a family-style meal. It also feels (is!) in the middle of nowhere, another draw. Note that there are 2 roads to get here from the main road. We didn't realize that and were coming from the east; that route...

The good news is that the Hrifunes guest house is adding half a dozen more rooms to its little complex on top of a very windy hill a couple of kilometres north of Route 1 near the unpronounceable village of Kirkjubaejarklaustur. This is a very unassuming little place but something of a gem. The hostess, Ingeborg, is warm Icelandic hospitality...

This was with no doubt the most cozy guesthouse of our round trip. It is located in the beautiful Kirkjubaejarklaustur area in the South of Iceland and has amazing views... As besides breakfast they also serve a great dinner, don't hesitate to stay here!! Sylvia

I stayed here for 5 nights while on a photography tour. Had a wonderful room and the food was absolutely awesome! Was the first time I had lamb and I'm sure I'll never eat lamb again that was as wonderfully cooked as it was here.

We recently did the ring road (two twenty-something married couples). We stayed at 5 different accommodations along the way (6 days total) and hands down all decided this was the best! Hadda was awesome! We never did a true BnB experience and this was amazing! We stayed in the main house and loved the cozy atmosphere, inviting decor, and tasty...

Hrifunes was the highlight of our holiday, mainly because of the fabulous homely atmosphere the hosts create with the warm welcome and fantastic cooking. Located miles from anywhere, we were hesitate to choose this guesthouse for a 4-day stay in case we didn't like it and got stuck there. But our fears were completely unfounded. We looked forward to the...

Driving to Hrifunes is a treat. The scenery is stunning. The room, the view from the main house, the food and the staff made this a memorable 2 nights. When we stayed we had Andrea doing the cooking and the ""meet and greet, and although she isn't the owner but a good friend of the owner, she takes as much...

“Ask for the new rooms with a view. They are not finished yet but should be in April or May 2017.”
