Gauksmýri Lodge
Great Stopover on the Road to Akureyri
Excellent property, wonderful staff!! On a recent vacation I wanted a stop midway between Reykjavik and Akureyri, just in case the winter weather was too overwhelming for this Southern California boy to drive in. After our first day of winter driving, Gauksmyri Lodge was warm, inviting, and a great place to decompress. Turns out, we were the only ones booked for the evening and got to explore the property at our leisure. Yet, the night the staff was just as attentive to detail as if there was a full house. For example, I had thought of letting them know we would only be needing a few eggs and bread for breakfast, and not to go out of their way for just us two. However, they did not skimp on the breakfast, we enjoyed a full range of buffet options. Other hotels may have cut back on breakfast options to compensate for lack of clients, but they didn't.

Visit to Iceland
This Ranch it's in a beautiful area of Iceland. I liked staying in this beautiful property much better than in the city near by. The facilities are nice & the rooms upstairs have your own private bathroom, some with a view of the land. If u stay in a room where you share a bathroom for 2 people, you can get a room with 2 single beds, cozy, but very small & narrow. Both beds are against a wall. Rooms for more than 2 people can be more spacious. Bathrooms are not far from rooms on the first floor. The dining room is beautiful & they serve a very good breakfast. The living shared areas to relax outside your room are cozy & nice! No dinner available when we stayed in mid September. They do own a restaurant in town that you can have a nice dinner with a discount & the food, service & restaurant ambiance is excellent! Staff at both facilities are very accomodating & welcoming. Overall it was a very nice stay. Would come again!
