The owners are laid-back, very friendly Icelanders who do an amazing job. Ask them about (or google yourself) their YouTube videos! The sunrise at the "house lake" is beyond description. The house is absolutely quiet. Despite GPS system, it took us a little while to find it the first time. If you don´t succeed, just ask in the neighborhood... We would in any case book there again. High recommendation!

Vatnsholt is charming, welcoming and perfectly located to be just far enough away to feel like the middle of nowhere, and close enough to drive from the airport in just over an hour. The hotelier, Margaret, was wonderfully welcoming. This is a family run business and it shows. The staff could not do enough for us, and yet the atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. The accommodation itself was spotlessly clean and the beds were some of the best I have ever slept on! A truly remarkable place in which to visit a truly remarkable country! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see the real Iceland!

Stayed in double room, room very small and bathroom extremely small. Friendliness of staff and farm life with beautiful country views best aspect of this location. Breakfast not included unusual for a B&B.
