Five stars in light grey

Modern, warm and comfortable

 Very wide room, nice, clean warm and comfortable. Modern with nice details. Definitely a nice stay. Access is completely through codes so we didn’t meet any staff.

Within easy reach

Very efficient, easy check in with door code sent by e-mail, a new building with a really nice room and bathroom, kettle with tea and coffee, excellent. Several small café’s nearby, supermarket, liquor store, gas station with cheap food all close. This is just about 1 hour from the airport and a nice quiet scenic run along the road 427 if going to or coming from the airport.

Perfect place to stay in Þorlákshöfn

Really nice modern guesthouse located in Thorlakshofn. Ideal, especially if you are doing one of their awesome tours to stay with them in their own accommodation. Ossi, who ran our amazing ATV tour, included breakfast for us (even though it was not advertised as included) as we had booked a tour with them.

The system works via keycode access. You are sent the code a week before you arrive and simply let yourself into the property and your room. Very simple, no checking in or out and good facilities in the rooms. Perfect.
