Good cottage for family of 4.

The 2 bed rooms cottage Valley View is like what I expect. From here we can go to Hruanfossar with 30 min (35 km).

one of the nicest piece of property in Iceland

beautiful setting- on river falls-nice to hike around. All types of accommodations little motel type rooms- huts with bring your bag and very nice guest cabin with great kitchen that we stayed in- suggest you do your own cooking..dinner was pricey and very bad- like thin dried fish breaded like a disguise- -not a chef in the house! Cold fish and I mean forgot to nuke well fish and chips.Breakfast- book or not was good-usual buffet. Again suggest to take advantage of fine kitchen if you have the guest cabin. Shop for food supplies in Borgarnes.The place was nice -we expected a really nice dinner, Dining room was cute- music records theme in glassed deck view of Falls.
