We really enjoyed our stay here. It’s a nice hotel and the staff are really friendly. Everything is clean and well managed. The breakfast is fantastic and the hotel has an amazing restaurant. The local lighthouse and museum were great to visit and we enjoyed being so close to the beach. There aren’t lots of options for public transit, but there is a bus stop not too far away. Gardur & Lighthouse Inn are worth the visit. I’m glad that we stayed here.

Easy walk to the lighthouse and museum. Great views of the coast, can watch the waves come into the shore. Fantastic breakfast. Staff was very helpful giving directions and suggestions for where to go for things we forgot to pack. I would stay longer next time.

My room was beautiful! This was the last stop on my 10 day Iceland adventure and by far had the best breakfast buffet and most comfortable room w/nice aesthetics & was high quality. The blackout curtains FULLY blacked out my room and I slept great, with it being light out for 18 hours a day during my time. 15 min from airport. If I come back to Iceland, I will be staying here again!

First stay in room with wooden panelled walls for a city person. - nice and cozy nonetheless! It would be nice if there is a box of facial tissues in the room.

Likes the wood cabin feel to the whole place. Close to the aorport makes for a good final night of the holiday. Great sunset views and peaceful town. Easy to get down to Grindavík, active geothermal national park areas and the bridge between continents. Not too far from Reykjavík.

Unique property close to KEF Rekjavik International Airport. Everything was as expected. Staff was attentive, friendly. As we were leaving early morning before breakfast, staff prepared a lunch bag for us included ham sandwich, juice box and banana. If travelling in or out of KEF, I would definitely rebook. 5 Star !!
