While there are a ton of places to stay in Vestmannaeyjar, there is only one that stands out for its comfort, location and facilities – The Old Westman Island House. The relatively new kid on the block is quickly making a name for itself and has set a new high bar for quality digs. Here’s several reasons why you should pick the hotel for your stay.
It’s achingly beautiful
You’d be hard pressed to find a more beautiful looking building on the archipelago. The white clapboard detached home built in a traditional design towers up around surrounding private gardens. A series of steps leads up to a magnificent double front door. There’s style aplenty at this island hotel.
It’s got all the modern amenities
It’s got all the modern amenities you would expect from a guesthouse hotel. Comfortable double beds with memory foam mattresses, flat-screen TVs, access to free parking, an outdoor picnic area and complimentary WiFi and a Personal hotspot the whole trip in Iceland. Plus, many of the guestrooms have fabulous views looking out over the mountains. Pick from cosy well-appointed doubles to family suites with living areas and kitchenettes with toasters, kettles and fridges.
It’s got the perfect location
There is no guesthouse which has as perfect a location as The Old Westman Island House. Set just on the edge of town, you won’t feel the bustle of the centre, yet you’re still just a few minutes’ walk from the restaurants, nightlife, cultural activities and the harbour.
They take care of your itinerary
If you’ve come to Vestmannaeyjar without a plan, fear not. The welcoming staff at The Old Westman Island House can take care of everything for you. Want to join one of the outdoor activities like hiking, horse riding, fishing or kayaking? No problem. Looking to dive into the culture and history of the islands? That can be arranged. They can even nab tickets and reservations to the restaurants or pub crawls if you’re looking for a night on the town.
Cook up a summer BBQ
If you’re visiting in the summer, you have access to the guesthouse’s BBQ equipment. Spend a balmy evening grilling up your own family dinner and enjoy a few cold ones accompanied by the wonderful views. It’s possible to use the BBQ in winter too, but it probably won’t be quite as fun while you shiver in the cold.
We speak fantastic English
You won’t need to worry about communication. All the staff at the guesthouse speak excellent English. Plus, they are super helpful, so if there is anything you need, they are right on hand to help you out.
