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

Sad face IconDisliked: 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.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect retreat cabin
Two of us only stayed in the cabin with a loft. I found the beds in the loft very comfortable and there is plenty of room up there. Ceiling height does taper so not enough height to stand in. Young children would need help on the ladder. My travel partner stayed in the bedroom and said his bed was super comfy. Reason for 4 stars on check in is because I was not emailed the access code for the lock box. However... the manager arrived within mere minutes to let us into cabin. Would highly recommend. Especially for anyone interested in a bit of peace and long rolling grasslands. The posted pic depicts the property perfectly.
