Iceland is nothing if not eccentric, and this 17-room guesthouse is no exception.

As the name hints, it was once a dairy processing plant, but it’s been renovated into a modern guesthouse. Rooms are very simply furnished – some might say stark – but all are ensuite and offer views over Vantnajokull and the surrounding mountains.

The hotel is situated on the road leading to the southeast harbour town of Hofn, about 2km from the quayside and its excellent seafood restaurants – the best places to taste the town’s legendary langoustines.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...

Langoustines in Hofn

Langoustines in Hofn

Hofn, Iceland[0.9 miles]

Hofn is a salty fishing town on the southeast coast, but amongst Icelanders it’s famous for one thing: its seafood, especially its langoustines. These tasty crustaceans can be tasted at several restaurants around town – you’ll never taste them sweeter or fresher. Time to get cracking…
