I spend the night at Ensku Husin with my parents during a 10 days trip along the south coast and the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Wonderful welcome there by the owners Anna Dröfn and Hjörleifur. Very friendly and talkative, they told us the story of this famous house. the house herself is an ancient fishing lodge converted in a really cozy guesthouse....

OK. So Iceland is expensive. That said I don't really get this place. Very isolated and the weather was very bad but all the same, I am not convinced. We booked for two nights. On arrival, we were asked if we wanted dinner, we said yes to 'lamb soup'. This was billed as dinner. Turned out to be basic lamb...

Just the best place to stay! We were three friends on our roadtrip and stayed here only for a night. The place was so calm, warm, welcoming, cute and just perfect. We will definately stay there next time also. Do not miss this and ask for upstairs rooms ❤️

My son and I spent 2 nights at Ensku Husin Guesthouse after leaving Reykjavik. This place oozes with Icelandic charm, and was a wonderful place to come "home" to after being out in the rain and wind all day. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms in the main lodge. It was very small but cozy. Kind of like...

We cannot reconcile other reviewers description with our experience. Maybe the owners were away. The place seemed to be run by young girls. Our room was one of the outside rooms and basic which is ok. But how much effort is it to iron bedding and fasten the buttons on the duvet ? The towels were old and frayed. But...

A bit difficult to find in the dark but worth it. This a wonderful place that oozes atmosphere and gives the impression of being isolated in a remote windswept wilderness (but is really just 20 minutes outside of town). We stayed in one of the newly renovated outside rooms and this was the most enjoyable place we lodged in Iceland....

We stayed in a small outdoor "cabin" by the house, separate room with en-suite bathroom. Great bed and extra good duvets. We had nice and cozy breakfast in the old house and there is also a common living room.

This was a nice, cosy place. The main building is an old farmhouse with all its charm. Meals could be taken on a common table with the opportunity of chats with other guests.The meals (traditional fish soup and meat soup) were simpel but very good. The room was nice . Simple, but with good beds. Walls were a bit thin....

Such a beautifully located guesthouse, makes me want to go back and stay here for a longer time. There is a beautiful river right behind the guesthouse, where you can take a lovely walk. The guest house is quite an antique treasure form the inside too. We booked rooms with private bathroom so we had our cabins right outside of...

We stayed four nights in this mediumsized B&B/guesthouse. We had a great room in the westwing, with the sunset in the evening in our window. Very good room, with privat bathroom and ample room for luggage and jackets. In the central house there is a diningroom for breakfast and dinner as well as a recreationroom with a lot of relevant...
