Our reviews

Vínland Guesthouse is proud of the reviews that we have received. We have great reviews from travellers around the world.

A pod with a great view

“The pods are simple, but still quite cosy shacks. There even is a little heating, to keep it a little warm. However there is also a “living room” with a kitchen in another building, so staying in the pod itself is not necessary. The owner was helpful with the opening hours of the living room. Free popcorn was also a big plus!”

Great location

“We stayed (family of five) in the cottage and had plenty of space. The host was very accommodating and friendly. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment and stores were within walking distance. It’s a good place to stop when transitioning from southeast Iceland to the north.”


“The property was in a fantastic location and was clean, modern and comfortable, all you could wish for, pity we only managed to stay the one night.”

Cozy cottage in the country side

“The cottage is wonderful! Fantastic views, very quiet in the countryside, well-equipped kitchen, clean, cosy and comfortable. The deck even has a bbq. The beds sleep great.”

Loved it!

“The bed was really comfortable, the shower was great (and private!) and Binni was very helpful with suggestions for dinner in the area as well as ideas for the remainder of our Iceland trip. I would definitely recommend staying here.”

Great experience

“Nice little cosy Cottage! The place was clean and warm, the price was good and totally worth it. The owner was very nice and helpful. We stayed there for one night, in a sleeling bag accomadation. Thank you!”
