The location is great, close to Akureyi and the apartment is nice however the hot tub was not good due to the fact there is no path. It is situated at the back of the property and the area is very over grown with no lights so we were fighting the super long grass with a torch to get to it when all they needed to do was put down some stones and one light. There is a great decking at the side of the property so I have no idea why they did not put it there
Very nice view from the terrace, comfortable place to stay, well equipped, clear user information, we can highly recommend this cottage.
The cottage is quite spacious and offers everything you would expect.
What I really missed was more space to put things like books, computer etc, for example an extra shelf in the living room.
The weather was very nice during our stay, but out of two chairs on the terrace one was broken-we we’re three people.
My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Viking Cottage. The cottage was well stocked with a beautiful view. It was nice to do some laundry during our stay. It was near to Husivik where we were able to go whale watching. I highly recommend staying at this cozy cottage.
We find Iceland a little challenging for us on three counts...mobility issues, vegetarian and acute shellfish allegy. However we love the country so much this is our sixth visit in 8yrs. So with a little care all three issues are very managable.
We choose ground floor, self catering accomodation where ever possible this covers all our needs. Viking cottages ticked all the boxes for our four night stay in the wonderful Akureyri where the stop lights on traffic signals are heart shaped.
Our cottage was all on one floor and has a good amount of space for 2 adults.We were glad to find out it was well equipped including a much needed washing machine However by far the best attribute to our cottage was the view over to Akureyri especially at night time.
Regarding the disability access - the step up from ground to patio is far too high it could prosper from an interim step making it ground,step, patio.
We had a problem accessing the TV it just kept showing no data found. We were invited to get in contact if we had any problems with the cottage but we chose to go without the TV it wasn't important enough to us to follow it through...but it might be to the next occupant .
We enjoyed our four days with Viking Cottages and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again
