We where staying at Helluland Guesthouse 26.6-28.6. The room was nice location good. I didn't read the email from Helluland sent me well enough about the breakfast(I woke up really early to get breakfast, no breakfast. My mistake not reading the email well enough). But the worst thing, it was really cold days at the soccer tournament in Sauðárkrókur, but the room we stayed in at Helluland Guesthouse was really really cold, no heat in the room. It really damaged our experience at Helluland and we were not happy to come in a very cold room after long and cold day at Sauðárkrókur watching our daughter in soccer tournament. We stayed two nights and both nights was very cold. We had to sleep in warm underwear.
This lovely horse farm guesthouse is a bit off the beaten path, much to our delight. We enjoyed chatting with our super friendly host, Kristoffer, and wandering along the pastures looking at the horses. Our room was large enough but cozy. Breakfast was typically European, right down to the egg cups for the soft boiled eggs. The house was very clean and we appreciated being able to use the kitchen. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a quiet location.
Perfect place for riding, birdwatching,fishing, walking in the mountains. The house has a splendid view over a beautiful bay surronded of mountains. It is situated very calm, no trafic at all, end of a little road. From the house can you walk direktly up in the mountains, whitch for me who are swedish reminds me of the wilderness in the north of Sweden. Riding on black lava beach.Birdwatching. Fishing. Aurora,( the northern lights). Highlights of the place! Friendly atmosphere , you feel that you are at home!
Very clean with nice decor and spacious common areas with a casual and cozy atmosphere. Staff was very nice and helpful, allowing us to store our food in the fridge and accommodating our late check-in. There are also horses on the farm and riding opportunities available nearby. Breakfast was a good spread of skyr, cheese, bread and sandwich makings (cucumber, tomatoes, cold cuts) as well as oranges (rare!) and boiled eggs. Beds were comfy and bathroom was small but clean.
