“Quiet and beautiful cabin in fabulous surroundings!”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2013

This is a capacious cabin, well equipped, with a very nice atmosphere. The location is excellent, scenic surroundings, access to a salmon river and the possibility of angling. The cabin is also very central in relation to all major tourist attractions, including Gullfoss and Geysir. Highly recommended!

“Two-day stay in a nice little log cabin”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

We had a great stay in this nice cabin, in a peaceful location close to the river. The hot tub was fantastic for the kids (they spent hours in it), especially when the weather is a bit cold and rainy. The view from the terrace is beautiful and relaxing. Great place for the golden circle and enjoying a bit of icelandic lifestyle.

“Comfortable cabin in an ideal location”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

The cabin is in a quiet and pretty location, ideal for the Golden Circle sites (Gullfoss, Geysir, Thingvellir etc), and was warm and spacious, with perfectly adequate kitchen facilities. It was easy to book, and we received our damage deposit back immediately. Thoroughly recommended.

“Spectacular views, cozy comforts”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2013

Had a great stay on the river bank with friends and our son. The fireplace was a nice highlight. This was a great spot to get out from and see the spectacle that is Iceland. The customer service was above par. We left our camera and the owners made every effort to get it back to us. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a get away in the country side. We didn't take advantage but there is also a golf course and a swimming pool quite nearby.

“Cozy cabin and nice view”

Reviewed 27 May 2013

My family stayed here and we really enjoyed this cabin. We traveled from here to visit sights in the Golden Circle. We met one of the sister's upon arrival which was nice. The cabin has wonderful floor heat and also a wood stove we used a few times as it was cold out with strong winds. The kitchen was great and even had a dishwasher which we never used. The owner left us plenty of towels and bedding. This is a very private location and the cabin is well made and very sweet. The only drawbacks we found where the shower which leaked all over the floor. I suspect a plugged drain in the shower. Also the chain across the driveway lock never would open after the first day so we had to park outside the gate.

Response from the owner Thank you for your comments. It's good to know that your overall stay in our cabin was a good experience. I am sorry that you experienced any inconvenience. This is the reason we provide our phone numbers, so that our guests can call us if they have any trouble!

“Fantastic Spot!”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2013

If you want a homely cabin in a beautiful spot in the middle of nowhere, which is an enjoyable drive to all the golden circle attractions and dark enough to see the Northern Lights well, then this is your place. We met Jóhanna and Sesse who were really friendly and told us all about the local area. We had a great stay in the cabin and will definitely be going back again soon. Really nice place!

“Nice cottage”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2013

This is so pretty and nice house and a good location. I like staying there it is so relaxing and cosy inside and outside sitting on the porch with a beautiful view. It is a great break to visit the little beautiful summerhouse and I enjoy nature so much energy load for me. The location is perfect so many beautiful places nearby. I have been there both winter and summer time and both has its own charm, so romantic.

“Amazing authentic atmosphere”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2013

It was so cozy to be able to close off from the rest of the world and just play games, knit and enjoy each others company. The cabin has this amazing authentic atmosphere which enhances the cabin experience. We enjoyed looking out at the lake and watched the sky changing colors. It's also close to a small village where there are cheap groceriestores and a swimming pool which my daughter loved :-D

“Summer in Solstaðir”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2013

The majestic beauty of the location could hardly be exaggerated. The cottage is perched a short distance from the Hvitá river and lake Hestvatn and offered the opportunity for a quick dip of the feet in the river upon arrival. The gorgeous cottage was fantastically well-stocked and maintained, clean and well decorated. We found everything needed for comfortable meals and pleasant evenings in the cottage or for a drink at the bar in the nearby Kidjaberg Golf course. We took the short drive to Gullfoss and Geysir and Thingvellir. We also took the opportunity to visit the church and school at Skálholt and went then onto the archeological site at Stöng, a fully preserved 11th Century longhouse. Coming back to the peaceful consolation of the cottage at Solstaðir after days of site-seeing was an absolute delight. The owners were helpful in every regard and I would absolutely recommend a stay at Solstaðir for anyone who wants to enjoy the best sites in Iceland in comfort and style.
