We had breakfast on 5 das and each day was very good. A good mix of fresh bread, fruit, Müsli, Coffee and Tee... we liked it and the price is fair. Also the people working there are very nice and always helping

We stayed in Golden Circle Apartments which seemed to have been associated with this guest-house as we picked up the keys there. We went across to the guest-house for a beer and had our beer in a very nice sitting area. We were then asked...if we wanted a tour of the building, which is now a combination of hostel, guest-house, conference centre and bistro. It is a beautiful and historic building being originally built in 1928 and for many years it was a renowned boarding school. It was quite fascinating to see the many pictures from the time when it was a boarding school. There are also many interesting antiques and memorabilia.More

We arrived 8pm. Were the only people in the restaurant and met the super friendly staff. We loved it! Nice food. Great price. Perfect view. Atmosphere was retro, quirky and we loved it! Clean and cozy. But the staff was extraordinary friendly. If I could...give more than 5 stars I would.More

The owner of Héraðsskólinn Restaurant welcomed us when we were desperate for food and we couldn’t find a place where to eat. Finding room and food for eighteen people in Iceland is not so obvious if you don’t book in advance. Apart from the initial...mess about checking the availability of some dishes due to the quantity of raw ingredients, we had a good time and ate delicious food in abundant servings. The location was warm and cosy, the waiters nice and the prices average.More

Upon entering you are requested to take your shoes off (?) First impression is more of a hostel than anything else. We stayed for a bowl of very salty tomato soup with great bread. We asked for 2 Brennivin and were told "it's not good...for our health" (?) We did not stay here because we just didn't feel welcomed. Stange placeMore

The pictures say it all about this hostel. It is BEAUTIFUL. Like a castle, and a really good one at that. However, this review is about the restaurant and although it was a nice room the food was really bad. Both my girlfriend and I...had pizzas that were totally tasteless which was a real shame because the base was perfect. They looked great on the menu but I'm afraid it only gets above 1 star on account of place... Not the food!More
