My boyfriend and I visited for two days in July. Sjöfn, the owner of the guesthouse took excellent care of us and made sure all of our needs were met. Her breakfast was especially good and I’d say made one of the best breakfast pancakes i’ve ever had!! The nature around is breathtaking and in fact her dog took us on a guided tour and made sure we always followed the way. We can also recommend the horse back riding closeby. The rooms themselves are nicely decorated, clean and cozy.

Thank you for our stay. We had a good time relaxing in the hot tub and gazing at the Atlantic ocean, looking for whales and seals. The hostes Sjöfn is so welcoming, she told us adventure stories and showed us her artwork. She is so talented!

We highly reccomend Guesthouse Gimbur. It’s location is perfect for a quiet relaxing stay. Rooms are nice, very clean and with excellent beds . The Host greeted us warmly and are very friendly. They supplied us with excellent information. It is wonderful to relax in the hot pot after a long day of traveling. It’s location with a view directly out to the Atlantic ocean is a great bonus. Sitting area on second floor gives you a wonderful view to the ocean.

We had a lovely visit here and enjoyed the hot tub and view. The host does offer breakfast but there is an additional charge. Our room was comfortable and large with a sink which was nice. It is far from a grocery store so plan on bringing food with you as there is a nice large shared kitchen. The house also has a nice shared living room upstairs. All in all a good stay! Horse riding nearby as well.

What a wonderful stay we had at Guesthouse Gimbur. Stunning location with beautiful views of the sea which you can take in from the hot tub! The room was spotlessly clean as were all the beautifully furnished common areas including a stunning living space with panoramic views. We also loved chatting to the owner and sharing about our cultures over breakfast. Honestly felt like we were at home- thank you!
