Pleasant rooms that were warm. Very nice, big “waterfall” shower. The food is fantastic traditional Iceland food (Eg - fish soup). We enjoyed our stay.

Nice comfortable independent family cabin. Everything was fine except the bathroom door would not close properly. Nice kitchen facilities.

Exceptional 10.0
Stayed for one night after sightseeing along the south coast. This was a perfect location and the room were perfect. Breakfast was very good and the people extremely friendly. There’s an awesome easy/moderate approximately 1.5-2 hr hike right from there up to the glacier above that made the stay even more memorable. It had some great views and was perfect for getting some activity in before heading back out in the car for more sightseeing.

Must love Sheep
We loved having the sheep up on our porch and grazing around the cabin. They recommended amazing places to go to where there are few tourists, including great trail right starting right at farm.

Clean and comfy!
This was a great stay on our trip around Iceland. The cabin was clean and well-equipped for our needs. We were able to relax and make a nice dinner after a lengthy day of driving. We also enjoyed quiet, comfortable sleeps. The breakfast provided the next morning was plentiful and varied. It was a cosy spot where we could linger over a coffee and marvel at the view. We would definitely recommend Guesthouse Skalafell to anyone making the journey to this part of the island.
