A nice place to stay during the road trip

We were doing the whole road trip to Iceland and this was our first stop, so we stayed just for 1 night. A great place to stop. The staff is friendly and the place is very cosy. My room was really comfortable and had a nice view. The breakfast was also nice.

Great hospitality!

A good and cosy guesthouse with okay rooms, good bathroom facilities and a lovely hot tub and swimming pool. The hospitality of the staff makes Bakkaflot a 5-star Guesthouse. They serve a good breakfast a great dinner and can arrange a perfect `on the road lunch package. Next, to the great food, they are always willing to help you out with any kind of questions.

They make the extra effort to make you feel welcome!

The people at this place really went the extra mile for the group I was in and made a huge effort to make us feel welcome. The rooms were clean. The food was very good and when I was there-there was an Icelandic holiday and for dinner, we were served some traditional Icelandic meals.

Great cabins with all you need!

The cabins look like new and are clean and comfortable. It is free entry to the pool and hot tubs and it is just about 150 meters from our cabin. We had dinner also and the food was good, the simple menu is not with too many options but enough.
