Kast Guesthouse
Reviewed 8 October 2017

We stayed here for 2 nights on a driving trip around Iceland. It is in a great location for seeing Snaefellsnes Peninsula - close to good hiking, the national park and the ocean. The rooms, although not super charming, were very clean and had everything we needed. We were most surprised by the food - fresh baked, delicious bread for breakfast every morning and a dinner that far exceeded our expectations. Dinner is always cod or lamb but the preparation changes every night. I had cod on mushroom risotto that was one of the best meals we had on the trip. We also got great local advice on hikes and drives. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

It was easy to find and our room was very bright with big windows. There’s a big deck in front. The owner is super friendly and gave us directions for a really nice drive and lots of sights. Dinner was there and we shared an entree and each got a soup. The portions are quite large so this was perfect for us. I think dinner was about $65 for both of us. There were also several desserts to choose from for extra $.
It was a very quiet night and we slept well.

Very disappointed by this place which looked amazing on their pictures but is just a rip-off: an average new guesthouse with no charm, a bit dormitory alike. We wanted to please ourselves by spending more, what a waste of money! Room was average as well as the breakfast, we had much better in other places. Price was outrageous for the room and service offered. Not a bad place, just overpriced for Icelandic standards.

We ate at the restaurant (stayed elsewhere) Absolutely recomendable. Nice and friendly staff og good food. We had lamb and fish of the day.
We did not make a reservation, just dropped by. Given the size of the restaurant a reservation might be good.

We stayed here for two night during our road trip through Iceland. We had a room with a private bathroom in the fairly new building accessible through a wooden terrace. The room was spacious, quiet and clean. Breakfast is fine with delicious warm baked bread! The second night we had dinner at the Kast Guesthouse which was also delicious.
Only disadvantage was that there was a light sewer odor in our bathroom (#25), so not completely 5 stars.
