The place is small, simple and clean. Plenty for 1 or 2 people. It’s a nice property in a quiet location for a good price. There are no shops or restaurants in Vogar; but presumably if you’re thinking of staying here you have a car, and Keflavik and Reykjavik are a short drive away, so you just need to plan ahead. All nice with good communication.

We booked a single night here to recover from jetlag after a transatlantic flight, and have been longing for the soft beds and weighted blankets every day since checking out. In the span of a week here in Iceland, we've checked into half a dozen emergency hotels (our car camping plan has been roundly defeated), and none of them compare to the delightful aesthetic, luxurious comfort, or detailed amenities of Arctic Wind. My wife checked for open rooms here every time we stopped for the night anywhere on the island's Southwest corner.

There isn’t much to do in the area and no restaurants but there is a kitchen available with leftover food from past guests: pasta, soups, peanut butter. The room is super clean and functional and bathroom is nice too. No staff on hand- you have to eamil for check in instructions
