Very spacious cottages with a large bathroom and fridge, microwave and kettle. We would have, however, appreciated a couple of plates and cutlery to go with the microwave. WiFi is very intermittent in the cottages. Breakfast is good but very expensive (even for Icelandic standards). Stappin Cafe & Restaurant across from the main restaurant has some lovely food in the evening, can recommend. If you go in the summer, be prepared to run the gauntlet with the birds who are defending their young. This is pretty much all over Iceland, not just unique to this part.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely place to stay. A bit remote, in terms of there being no grocery stores or any other amenities close by other than those associated with Arnarstapi Hotel - but the restaurant was excellent. Be prepared to plan ahead for any other needs. Highly recommend the Cottages.

Beautiful off the grid property. The area it’s situated in is breath taking. We enjoyed a stunning costal walk before settling in for a well earned sleep. I hate to be this person, but we did miss the tv. Would be nice to have the choice.

Nice set up with multiple cottages on one side of the road (further from the water) and the hotel on the other side (closer to the water). If view is important to you, then the hotel might have better access to water view as some of the cottages probably look at the buildings of the hotel. Luckily my cottage was at the end so I had a good view of water from my window. Check in is at the Arnarstapi Center (where the restaurant is) and that’s also where you park your car. It’s a short 1-2 min walk to your cottage. But you can drive up to your cottage to unload luggage before parking your car. The inside is basic but lights were functional. Kettle, microwave, and mini fridge. Would be nice if they provided basic utensils and plates. I had no problems with wifi as some others have had. It is true there is limited hot water (~5 min) but my partner and I just showered 1 hour apart at the end of the night. Both had hot water and with the expectation it would be short lived. It’s nearby to the trail by the waterfront including the stone bridge which was pretty. I would stay here again if I drove into the peninsula.

Checking time 16.00 not very good. We got there for 13.00 and we have to wait 3 hrs. And there is nothing to do in the area. Check in is done by code sent to you. There is no personal contact other than poor guy in the restaurant trying do everything. Next morning we cheched out 10.00 am . We were still in the car park and they cleaned the room. You pay lot of money and breakfast not included. We were disappointed
