Pros: Family of 3 adults, this was our 3rd night in Iceland, we had a double and a single bed. The place was easy to find with parking just in front. Our host left us a lovely note to welcome us and came by to greet us a bit later: lovely lady! The cottage was beautiful and very cosy: we felt at home and had plenty of room. We fell in love with it and it turned out to be our favorite place over our holiday! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, shower was great, beds super comfortable and we had TV with Netflix. It was the perfect place to stay near Hofn (we came from Vik). We would highly recommend this place.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The guesthouse was as presented and expected. The woman running the facility was wonderful- clear in what was available and ran an exceptionally clean and orderly house.
Cons: The shared bathroom was made clear to us at booking. Unfortunately, you can’t predict the other room’s guests. The 2 women next door totally dominated the washer/dryer and bathroom. They each took more than 50 minute showers and nonstop washer/drier time. It totally turned us off and left a terrible memory. Don’t know how the guesthouse can control for this. Had I thought this through earlier, I would have booked a real hotel near the harbor or even both rooms, leaving one empty just to have access to the bathroom. There was no actual service staff to handle issues. Too bad because the host was nice enough.

5.4 Okay
Pros: Very unusual to look at but there seems to be a pattern to these types of properties in Iceland. But really how good are the accommodations?
Cons: The PRICE! Very expensive for what is offered. The staff is excellent. Facilities were clean and comfortable. The location not convenient to the town. The construction of this property is such that walls very thin, so you hear everything. The doors are such that the only way they close is they slam. Very annoying. Breakfast was nothing special. Lighting in rooms, very annoying. Have to walk outside to get to breakfast, car etc. So if it’s raining, guess what? You’re soaked just getting to breakfast which is not worth it. Never would recommend this place.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location just outside Höfn is great for a Ring Road tour. The building is new, pristine, well-maintained, and stylish. The guest room and bathroom was comfortable and contemporary. Breakfast was good, including fried eggs.
Cons: There isn't much privacy in the rooms near the parking lot (about half of the rooms), with the main walk to the office and breakfast/common room passing directly in front of them. Since the exterior guest room wall is made of glass (both door and windows), you have to keep the curtains fully closed to have any privacy, which reduces airflow from the window.

Inga, the owner of thr farm, helps me a lot. She calls and offer me to picke me up (it’s a 55km from her farm!!!), wait for us after the checkin time, let us find a delicious soup and tootbrush. I love the way she behave with us and i think she is a very good person. Her farm is so good and deeply into the nature that i felt at home as never ib my life.

Pros: We arrived late and and didn't want to drive further to get dinner. They were about to end their dinner and kept it open so we could eat. The food was wonderful!

Pretty basic and more expensive than other better accommodation in Iceland however limited availability in Hofn and the room itself was fine.

7.1 Good
Pros: Nice breakfast (buffet)
Cons: Worst beds we had. Single bed that are supposed to stay together to give you a double (like often in Iceland) but won't because they weight like a feather and cheap... Ceiling was dirty, baseboards were all off from the wall and/or dirty... I did know that shower and toilets were shared but honestly for the price, you can get better...
6.5 Good
Cons: Only one toilet per floor for men!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The room was great, it had a little sink which was nice considering the WC is shared between so many. The staff were very nice and it was a short drive to town.
Cons: While the WC was fine, the ladies shower smelled strongly of urine and the floor seemed stained yellow. I did not enjoy that very much. Also the breakfast was mostly fish.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good and the rooms were comfortable. Food was fantastic! The homemade ice cream is a must try!
Cons: Our window that opened to outside was cracked with a big x. I reported it to the front desk who said that they knew about it. The heat is underfloor and takes a long time to warm up the room, my mother-in-law said her room never did warm up. We were on the lower level facing the sea in what appeared to be a newer addition and we could hear every person open their door with their key, the conversations they were having in the hall, the furniture being moved in the room above us, etc. In the bathroom we heard conversations were coming through the bathroom vent, kind of weird!

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Beds very comfy. Room size good. Good bathroom. Warm, lovely views. Pleasant staff.
Cons: Only fruit teas available....no black tea eg breakfast tea. We found this surprising as we're great tea drinkers. Although there was fruit tea and coffee freely available for residents there were no tea trays in the rooms. Breakfast disappointing. Choice reasonable but looked stale. The fruit had been cut and had gone brown. Not what we had been looking forward to.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice host with good advices. Good location near many restaurants. Despite a problem with a bathroom, the host tried to make it right with a free entry to the pool.
Cons: Waiting line for the bathroom (but it was clearly said from the beginning) and unlucky for us 1 of the 2 bathrooms was broken. The price seems to me to be slightly too high but in regards to the other possibilities in Höfn it seems correct.
6.7 Good
Pros: Very nice young man at check-in.
Cons: no comfortable chair in the room. No soap or shampoo in the shower.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Super nice and welcoming host! Two kitchens to chose from that offered everything we needed. Quite charming: Even though our room was very small and in the basement (as described in the hotel description) it had a individual name ("Room to listen to") and fitting decor (in our case: music albums on the wall) which made it a bit more cosy.
Cons: Only two bathrooms (but that was also mentioned in the description).
4.6 Okay
Pros: There were cooking facilities but the house was tight. The walls were thin and you could hear a pin drop. The location was central, nice. The host was very nice as well. However, I woke up to a bedbug crawling on my sheets and there was a spot of blood at the base of the bed, which itself was not very comfortable. I’m not certain if they knew about this problem prior to me renting it, but it is definitely an issue. All in all for the cost of the room I feel the experience was not worth it. The bathrooms were also always occupied and very wet from use. The house felt cramped and a bit dingy.
Cons: See above
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Guesthouse is really near all local restaurants, just 2 minutes walking.
Cons: 1) Place was not cleaned properly, on some places some dust layers were present. 2) Wifi was not functioning in the basement. 3) Rooms were quite noisy, especially in the morning you could other guests here wake up and preparing themselves for the day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The house was clean and the kitchen was well outfitted. The room was small but fine. The staff was very friendly and the restroom was clean.
Cons: Only 2 restrooms for the whole house so there was often a wait for the restroom.
7.9 Good
Pros: The housekeeper is really friendly. We had a warm welcome and he shared his coffee with us. You can ask him for free entrance vouchers for the public swimming pool. Awesome!
5.4 Okay
Pros: Great location
Cons: wifi didn't work, sheets were unconfortable, noisy, it was the most expensive reservation that we had in all the trip in Iceland and the cost didn't meet the quality.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were having a great day and our host made it even better. He was really welcoming and gave us great recommendations to get dinner and visit a near by pool. Room was comfortable and clean.
7.5 Good
Pros: Caretaker was extremely friendly and funny. He was nice enough to give us free token to the pool near by which turned out to be an amazing experience. There is a free parking lot adjacent to the property. No need to park on the street :)
Cons: Price for a room was a bit high since the room is pretty small and can barely fit 2 luggages. However, we did some research and realized this was already a cheap property in the area.

8.3 Excellent

5.0 Okay
Cons: Cramped room for 4, no table etc, noise thru walls
4.5 Okay
Pros: Location, free breakfast
Cons: Room too small, expensive for such a small room, no amenities. Not suitable for family with kids
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything - Don't be put off when you arrive outside this guesthouse, it's lovely. Great little hotel, small but perfectly formed rooms, great bathroom facilities, obviously recently modernised. Breakfast was good too. Stairs are a little tricky (narrow) but okay. But it's right by all the lovely restaurants and harbour.
Cons: Would have liked a couple more electric sockets in the bedroom, for the hairdryer nearer a mirror for example.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I can not speak in general. We were hosted in the ground floor, room number 6. Very small, not very clean, without any wardrobe to put the suitcases and your clothes. The blind of the window didn't cover the whole window and the light entered into the room. Very very expensive for the low comfort they offer. And there is nobody living there. The proprietor runs a restaurant near the guesthouse, and when you arrive you have to ring the bell and wait, five minutes or more, until they come. Moreover, breakfast wasn't so good. There were two rooms in front of the dining room. A place very impersonal.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very clean
7.5 Good
Pros: We had the entire establishment to ourselves, so plenty of room to spread out and relax. There are 8 rooms in total, and it would have been a bit uncomfortable with 14 other people in the shared spaces!!!
Cons: Powerpoints were in odd places and not many of them. Beds were quite separate, so when I went in for a cuddle I nearly fell through the gap between them!!

6.3 Good
Pros: The main building was very nice and the woman at the check in desk was excellent.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff went the extra mile to meet my request for a room with s bathtub. Much appreciated!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: All the staff members we encountered were very friendly and helpful. They even added us to the list of wake-up call in the event the Northern Lights appeared that evening. The included breakfast had a good variety of items and was of high quality. The views from the water-facing deck were very nice.
Cons: The shower stall was a little cramped, but typical of many European hotels.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Located near the center of Höfn.
Cons: First impression was a very bad smell in the room coming from the drain. Not a single case, read the other reviews. Water in the basin didn't drain because of hairs under the stopper. Main light in the room didn't work. Because of these three issues we wanted to talk to the management to ask for a partial refund. A personal meeting with the manager was promised for the next day in the morning, but when we were leaving the manager was surprisingly in a meeting. Really? We don't think so. So we agreed to leave our email adress and were promised to get an answer to our request, but never heard from them again. This is highly unprofessional and not in any way customer orientated. There can be problems with the room but ignoring the concers of your customers and avoiding a talk is unacceptable. We visited Iceland in the last 9 years for 13 times - this was by far our worst experience.

Cons: Hotel food was pricey
6.3 Good
Pros: The common areas were fine and the hotel overall design feels like a pleasant flashback to the 1960s (when it was founded). Staff was rather friendly and welcoming overall.
Cons: The room in itself was a bit gloomy though decent, and the bathroom just stank (clearly, ventilation is an issue in the bathroom).
8.8 Excellent
Pros: very nice breakfast!
Cons: the room was rather small and the hotel has no elevator, which meant going up 2 floors on stairs.
9.1 Excellent
Pros: Great breakfast, nice property.
