We had a very pleasant stay at the guesthouse. The surroundings are incredible and it is worth to have a wander around the area!

Our stay in the guest house was very nice, very roomy shared kitchen and living room space. The view was gorgeous, and finding out we had access to a hot tub was a great surprise! The place is just very nice with lil trails and near a waterfall. Just really all around pleasant stay. Staff was very helpful and kind.

We stayed in the guest house, and were quite pleased with the location, which includes an impressive waterfall running under the bridge and distant views of a lake and mountains and things to see. The guest house had a nice bed with lots of blankets and access to a communal kitchen and sitting area including an impressive library for its size. The troll theme is mildly kitschy but may be fun for families with younger kids. On that note there's a great playground and plenty of walking trails. We didn't use the hot tubs at all, but it's a definite bonus. Like so much of Iceland, the buildings all seem fresh and new and finely ordered. Very happy with our night spent here.

A great place away from the city! They have created a beautiful fun walk with information about trolls and Iceland. The rooms were clean and spacious.

It's been a pleasant stay at Steinar's place. The guesthouse is very beautiful and offers everything you need. There are a lot of sights around that you are able to reach by car. We would recommend to stay here.

This is a guesthouse managed like an hotel (in fact, you get your room key from the hotel reception) so don't expect the traditional host/guest relation you can find on Airbnb. That being said, the place is lovely, the guesthouse is very clean, well furnished and accommodated and hot-tube are available for free.

Very comfortable stay not far off the ring road with a wonderful restaurant and scenic walks on site. Large complex with all different types of stays (campsites, huts, guesthouse). Great location between Reykjavik and the north.
