    The Guesthouse Svinavatn would be perfect for an extended stay for a family.

    This place was a good value for the money - so really not any complaints. It meets low budget expectations. Check-in was easy. The location was beautiful. The GPS did not know where this place was so we had to stop at a gas station and ask - luckily the attendant knew exactly how to direct us.

    A quiet vacation place with limited service

    This hotel is really remote. MyIt needs 20-30 min drive to a near by town for eating. Unfortunately, there is no breakfast or restaurant. I booked this guest house in order to see Northern Lights, and we did. We just needed to walk away 100m from the hotel and there is no lights around us! The staff is very friendly and welcoming, but she will be leaving after the summer. As it is a guest house, don't compare it with a hotel. The scenery is very good - lake, mountains, pastures, sheep, etc. Good quiet place to spend a night.

    Very nice!

    Very nice and comfortable stay. The host was nice and informative. Rooms were clean. I think there's about 8 rooms, and we got the double bed with ensuite. Spacious rooms, good sized kitchen and nice common area.

    Country home

    Nice place, clean, comfortable, good value. Had a well equipped kitchen, friendly owners. Only negative was it was noisy, could hear all the conversations and activities going on around you. Good chance to see Northern lights since it is away from the town.

    Very enjoyable.

    Everything was clean and comfortable. Room was large. It is a guesthouse so all guests share the bathroom. It is about six miles off the main route. Beautiful lake and view behind guesthouse. Very serene. Only thing I could r commend improving may be signs on bathroom doors to indicate if vacant or not.

    Great location in Northern Iceland near Blonduos!

    The guesthouse was amazing and we loved staying there! We had been camping for days and it was such a treat! The view was perfect and we highly recommend staying here! The location is breathtaking looking over Lake Svínavatn!!!
