5/5 Excellent

Beautiful garden apartment
We stayed here on our last night in Iceland. It’s a beautiful garden apartment with a lovely patio and access to a hot tub. The host was very welcoming.

5/5 Excellent

Spacious and romantic, best value in Keflavik!
Our family of five stayed for two nights at the Little White Castle, we could have stayed a week without leaving the premises! The owner is very much in-touch and knowledgeable and accomodating, we were invited to pick fresh lettuce from her amazing garden, and she helped us to settle our travel-weary bones by offering advice and making arrangements. Probably not the best place for young children or elderly folks, but the photos do not do it justice, especially if you are a family with teenage girls or young couples travelling together! Beware! If you book a stay you may not want to leave!

5/5 Excellent

LWC was our favorite place to stay at in Iceland
Katy was such a great hostess, she let us arrive a whole day early and drove several hours to accommodate our early arrival. The place was clean and spacious. We loved the backyard and hot tub. The kitchen was perfect for cooking for our family. We had tons of room. The kids loved the gameboy, too. We loved the uniqueness of the place and the location was so close to Blue Lagoon, harbour, airport and other tourist spots. Great place. I highly recommend this place.

5/5 Excellent

Fairytale paradise :)
The little White Castle is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are all full of wonderful things, from the beautiful glassware in the lounge to the disco ball in the bathroom. The garden was the perfect, snowy play area for the kids (and adults!). Katrin showed us where the local shops and restaurants were and lent us her sat nav. She couldn't have done more to help and was a truly lovely host. I would highly recommend a visit to the little White Castle to make your trip to Iceland truly magical. I'm sure we will be back!
