    Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. We stayed there on our way to the ice cave tours which is less than 20 min away.

    This is an old farmhouse with incredible charm, carried through by the wonderful owners. While we stayed, only the wife, Thora, was caring for the home while her husband visited family out of the country. She was efficient, helpful, caring, and great to talk with. There are a few house rules with the shared bathroom and for quiet hours, but they were not handicapping in any way. The rooms are small but definitely large enough for two Americans who chronically overpack! There is a sink in your private room. There is a gathering area centrally located where you can meet other travelers to compare travel notes and where you eat your breakfast in the morning. My husband and I are very private, introverted people and this is usually not our preferred type of lodging but we are so happy to have had this experience. Plus, we got to view the Northern Lights here!! Icing on the cake. Thank you, Thora, for opening your home to so many travelers.

    Kálfafellsstaður Bed & Breakfast is located about 45 minutes west from Hofn, and 40 minutes east from Diamond Beach/ Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, set way back from the road (south coast route 1) with a magnificent unbroken view of the ocean. Nearby is a small church and just adjacent is a small cemetery. The area is very quiet and peaceful. All the rooms and bathrooms are immaculately clean. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are well lit and comfortably warm. The breakfast is broad with the choice of porridge, several kinds of toast, waffle, cold cereals, homemade jams and spreads, cheeses, salamis, hams, sliced hardboiled egg, tomatoes and cucumbers. Coffee, milk, juice, and drinkable yorgurt are also generously served. The hostess is very accommodating and very helpful in answering a broad range of questions about the area and Iceland in general. During breakfast, we enjoyed conversations with the hostess and guests who came from all over the world. For lunch or dinner, several excellent restaurants are 20 minutes away, and Hofn has additional fine restaurants. We recommend getting up early in the morning and walking down the driveway to view the house, the mountain behind the house and the ocean view. Kálfafellsstaður is a wonderful place to spend a night or two as you explore Iceland, particularly southeast part of the country.

    If you like rules this is the place for you! There are hours for showering with no showering after 11pm. You need to squeegee the shower after use. Kitchen is for staff. You get a page of rules! The rooms are tiny though well appointed. Even though Expedia indicated a charge in Euro, my credit card was charged in Icelandic Krona and somehow equates to 10 Euro more. There are better and cheaper B&B's out there.
