5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The area is beautiful and the cottages are great. Others have complained about the amenities, but I thought everything was fantastic. Only hiccup was getting checked in when we had only one phone with questionable service. Could have used more info in advance. Overall though our favorite place we stayed during our trip.

Would not recommend
Terrible place and dirty. Leaking wall, growing white fungus on the leaking/wet wood panel in the bathroom. There was also leaking in the bedroom wall. Shower water pressure was very weak, like trying to shower under a trickle. My son got 29 bites on his body during our 2 night stay there. This place might have been infested with bed bugs. Don't recommend any travelers to stay there due to uncleanness and potential health issues.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Worse experience in Iceland cottages
Self check in with no front desk and no wifi. The cottage is quite old as the bed linens and towels are torn and worn. Water flows in the standing shower is choked thus flooded the whole toilet. No heater in the toilet, and heater in the room seems to be not working.
