Last two day we saw northern light just infront the guesthouse . It's amazing !
The hot tub outside was a wonderful bonus!
Property was beautiful, right on the water. There was a beautiful hot tub in the back, great lounge area with bar and rooms were quite, peaceful and comfortable.
Bathrooms are shared (a couple per hallway) however went off season so there were no issues. Bathrooms were super nice and clean just know some people would be picky about that, otherwise stay was fantastic.
The guesthouse has an amazing setting on the fjord. The restaurant is fantastic and the staff very helpful.
Clean rooms with comfortable beds. The hotel is decorated in a tasteful way. Amazing ocean view from most rooms and the dining room. Good restaurant and breakfast.
The decor was agreeable and about a ten minute drive to the Akureyri city center. Generally a decent option.
The building feels like a large dorm, and although private rooms, a bit impersonal. We woke up a bit sore from the beds and the hallways echoed quite loudly in the middle of the night. Feel the stay was overpriced.
I liked all the amenities that come standard with your stay....hot-tub, wi-if, a sink in each room means that you don't have to brush your teeth in the shared bathroom, a lounge area, recreational activities like horseback riding, a selection of beer and wine, and it is in a location that has a very nice view.
There's not much to put here....but there is a 200 character minimum so I have to ramble about nothing.... If I must say something....I wish it was free....but then it probably wouldn't be such a great place to stay....it would be a tree and some gravel to sleep on.
The sheared bathroom
Staff Horse riding Location Decoration Outdoor area with hammoc Hot tub
the quieteness of the environment,the very good food, the relaxing hot pool outside and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
it's a bit remote from Akureyri if you have no vehicle (about 6 km) and there is no bus service - the taxi can get expensive.
Its a personal guesthouse with a soul, lovely host, Dísa who is an artist in so many ways. Good breakfast and service.
Great spot. Fun guests. Super staff.
+ nice Hottub in the garden + good breakfast + nice garden to relax
Clean and friendly with a good restaurant. For a certain traveller a very good pick...perhaps a younger couple looking for eco, simple, quirky.
For us...access to washrooms was an issue in the morning and I found the décor inside and outside rather odd. Our window looked onto an odd building which blocked the lovely view of the fjord.
Friendly and helpful staff Nice breakfast Complimentary tea and coffee Nice views and hot tub
Beautiful setting and kind staff. All the people who work with the horses were lovely. We went riding and my 5 year old daughter had a lesson, which was terrific. Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Would love to return here one day!

Friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Loved the hot tub. Nice, peaceful location.
quiet location. horseriding next door. hot tub with stunning view. the restaurant. original decoration of the corridors.
nothing in particular
This place is like walking into a tea party thrown by your sweet old Nana. Staff was super friendly and helped us get a load of (super stinky) laundry done on time for our early'ish departure the next morning. The dinner was also pretty good. Facilities were clean and comfortable. If we had more time we would have taken advantage of their hot tub, library and horse tours. Highly recommend!
They made us feel so welcome, everyone was very friendly, food was excellent, room was great, hot pot was great, lounge was great - nothing to complain about
Excellent location on the water just out if Akureyri. Beautiful room, comfortable bedding and great breakfast too!
I liked everything! The people who were tending to the care of the place were thorough, attentive and cheerful, the couple that own and organize everything were wonderful and delightful, the decor was zany, fun, and exceptional, the location was beautiful and serene naturally and accompanied with hammocks and outdoor sitting so one could be enjoying the fresh air. The nice large hot tub was a real bonus!
I wasn't especially fond of the bathrooms down the hall but there were enough of them that I didn't feel rushed and the space was large and easy to be in with touches of the fun decor. And we knew it would be like this when we signed up. I wouldn't call it a negative aspect of the place just not as convenient as a toilet in the room.
