    The design. The food. The place.

    Probably the best accommodation in all of Iceland. Great concept, romantic, cozy and high standards.

    Very kind and accommodating staff. Excellent breakfast buffet and great food and ice cream sourced from the farm in the on-site restaurant. Room was clean, cozy and quiet with a beautiful view. Happy friendly farm dogs, horses and cows. Very well situated between town of Laugarvatn and sights Gulfoss and Geysir and close to Thingvellir National Park. Best value of all the places we have stayed so far in Iceland. Would absolutely return.

    The room in the log cabins was lovely, good size and clean. Dinner at the restaurant was excellent, and the breakfast included homemade bread and skyr. Absolutely lovely.

    Can't think of anything I didn't like.

    Compared with other Iceland accommodations, this farm hotel provided good value. Great location! Being able to watch cows in the barn through windows while having dinner, is something unique. Rating 8+ seems too low. Great view from the breakfast room as well.

    - The hosts were welcoming and friendly - The cabin is nice, all made of wood - the food in the restaurant was good. The restaurant's back glasswall faces the barn with cow, so you can come up and see cows chewing hay. - there is a warm open-air bath-tube in the yard

    - The water supply is very flaky – you literally won’t be able to take a shower. The water contrasted from being either scaldingly hot or very cold - The beds are fairly sleepable yet lack comfortable pillows (there were no extra pillows either) - the restaurant is good but expensive, and the service is slow, because the owner of the restaurant simultaneously is one and the only waiter there

    We stayed in one of the newly built cabin rooms at Farmhotel Efstidalur. The room was quaint, bed was comfortable and the surroundings were so quiet and peaceful. Recommend trying the homemade ice cream made from the farm's dairy cows ... delicious! The owners were very understanding when we had a mix-up with our reservation and were mistakenly double-charged. They refunded the amount and they made sure to follow up several days later to ensure we received the refund.

    A perfect place if you have young children. There are windows between the cafe and restaurant into the barn, so my five year old daugther kept us updated on the latest new about the cows at all times ;-). She was also allowed to come into the barn and watch while ther were milking the cows.. Hot tub with nice view outside the rooms. Close to Geysir/Gullfoss and to Fontana bath in Laugarvatn (definitly recommend that for families and others). Great breakfast and food in the restaurant. Home made ice cream in the cafe!

    Nothing negative (- not possible to rent horses during winter season - but possible nearby)

    Conveniently situated for visiting local sights of Geysir, Gullfoss and Pingvellir. We had a room in the annexe, on the valley side, which provided wonderful views. Nicely appointed in a rustic theme with tea making facilities as an added bonus, perhaps the only downside of the accommodation is that the soundproofing in wooden buildings is not always great. The fact that it is all part of a working dairy farm certainly adds to the experience. Evening meals are available on site and these are definitely to be recommended. As expected, breakfasts are superb.

    Incredible food (especially the burger), friendly and helpful staff, and of course the northern lights didn't hurt.

    The people working there were just lovely. We really felt like we were guests at someone's home. At the same time they were unobtrusive and gave us our space. I cannot express how incredible the restaurant is. The meat, yoghurt and home made ice cream is all from the farm. So fresh and simple but delicious. The view is also unlike any other. When you wake up and walk outside, the family dogs come and greet you and you just watch the sun rising straight from an expansive snowy horizon.

    The restaurant was amazing. The coffee room had windows into the barn so you could see the cows.

    The rooms are very cute and comfortable. We had a great view overlooking the valley below. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Make sure to try the ice cream!

    The shower is small, but it serves its purpose. The water smells of sulfur, but this is the case everywhere in Iceland.

    That farm made ice cream, the quiet and stars at night, the fantastic dinner over looking the farm, the relaxing breakfast and the fact that they had wifi.

    Solvi and his family were such fantastic hosts. They really went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. And what a beautiful place in a beautiful location. The food was great, too. Thanks!
