    We really enjoyed our stay here! Great atmosphere and location, very helpful and friendly staff. We arrived late after the kitchen had officially closed, and the staff went out of their way to make sure we still got dinner. Great food and service and an overall wonderful experience.

    Charming, located in a beautiful area right near some of the major waterfalls/sights to see. The resteraunt was quaint. Easy to make ourselves at home. A good halfway point between reykjavik and vik.

    Clean, friendly and a convienient place to stay for a ring road trip. Have a nice lounge and a great dining area. Food and extras are a tad pricey, but on par with prices in Iceland. Two thumbs up.

    So beautiful!!! Just out in the country on a farm. Very friendly staff and they even have lots of pets roaming around like dogs and chickens and birds in the main building. I really loved this place. The only downside I would say was slim breakfast choices, zero lunch , 5 items for dinner.

    I had a wonderful stay with my friends here in Vatnsholt - one of our overnight stops in a 5 day holiday. The place is nicely located along the Golden Circle area - its a good first pit stop if starting from Reykjavik. The rooms were great and cozy, and facilities were pretty good too. We had a nice set dinner in their restaurant to cap off our night. Thanks team and hope to be back again.

    My main complaint would be that their website makes you believe that there are lots of animals to see - there are no longer any dogs, pigs, talking ravens, foxes, etc. Just horses and sheep you see when you drive in. Oh and a parrot. They need to update their website to correct this.
