We loved our stay at Guesthouse Vellir! It was very clean and comfortable. The owner gave us a free upgrade, as we were the only guest at the time, and the superior room is beautiful and complete with a comfortable and large bed. 5 star stay!

There are better alternatives in the area
The guesthouse has lots of potential but it seems the owners are not very accommodating and can be more service oriented. The room is very small and there was hardly place to put our luggage. Breakfast had very limited selection. No hot dishes or eggs. Very pricey for what is given.
