Stayed here only one night but would recommend to stay longer (3 nights or so). Great location, hot pot, BBQ grill, terrace and a gorgeous view to the sea and the countryside. We were absolutely impressed by the site.
This is the most ideal place to stay for photographers. I picked this because of its prime location directly on the base of the famous Mt Kirkjufell.
We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the cottage and its cooking facilities. The price was very reasonable compared to the many others in other areas (mainly south outside of this West area). There are 2 bedrooms and we occupied both. We used the stove for cooking and the oven as well. The kettle helps with boiling water faster than the stove. The living room was ideal for us all to enjoy and there were even some DVDs for us to watch.
The scenery was lovely and most importantly, you can climb out before sunrise and take a 10min walk opposite to get to the famous photo spot for all photographers. This is the most ideal for a photographer aiming for good sunrise / aurora shots of Kirkjufell. I will not hesitate to return however this cabin is large for 4 at least so if it’s just a couple, you might not find it as good value because you pay more for 2 persons only. Great place to stay with free parking just outside your cabin.
We had no problem with shower and it was all good. The shower in Iceland is quite modern with temperature control selection dial right down to the degree of hotness you like. We stocked up on groceries but you can take a short drive to the nearest town to get some extras. Food is expensive in Iceland so watch out for meat like chicken wings on offer in the supermarket. We got lucky and bought some chicken wings and cooked a nice meal there.
Heater works very well throughout the house. Just be mindful about cooking inside if it is grilling as it may trigger the smoke alarm. Just open the windows when you cook.
There is a hot tub outside which you can enjoy in the coolness of the air. We had some trouble locking the door initially but the men in our group figured it out and managed to lock the doors when we went out.
We stayed here with 4 people a few days ago. We loved it! The location is absolutely wonderful, right on the mountain side in a picturesque location! The space felt cozy and inviting. It was very clean and could easily and comfortably fit 6 people. There is also a hot tub right outside the side and spent a few hours in it! Highly recommend!
Stayed here with 5 family members on a holiday in Iceland. The lodge is comfortable, but basic- 2 bunk beds, doubles with singles above. It offers spectacular views of Mount kirkjufell and the surrounding area.
We had two fantastic nights, sitting under the stars in the hot tub and had an incredible view of the Northern Lights.
The place itself is very remote- we found a lovely eatery near the sea, but is mainly for those who want to experience a relaxing retreat.
I would definitely recommend this place for those visiting Western Iceland… hopefully to enjoy a once in lifetime experience, of the Aurora dancing across the night sky.
