Höfðagata is the oldest bed & breakfast in Stykkishólmur with a long running history, in a historical town. The location is central and only a short walk away from restaurants, swimming pools and other services.
We prepare a wholesome breakfast each morning and do our best to accomodate vegan and vegetarian eaters. Breakfast is included in prices from May 1st to October 1st. In winter breakfast is served if booked in advance. We are proud of our garden which is well kept and a great area to eat your breakfast.
Stykkishólmur is widely considered the most beautiful townscape in Iceland, with many old and restored buildings. There are many great restaurants to visit, as well as contemporary and more traditional museums. The water in Stykkishólmur has received recognition for purity and spa qualities.
A popular activity is catching one of the boats for a quick fishing and/or sightseeing around the area. Flatey island is a short distance away with breathtaking views that you should not miss. A timeless and inspirational journey.
If you play golf you can rent some clubs and spend the day honing your swing or lazily completing a ring while enjoying beautiful and epic surroundings.
Hot tub in the garden. Free WiFi. Free coffee and tea.
We arrived later than anticipated after a long drive, but Ella kindly greeted us - the place was absolutely perfect, really welcoming and we had a lovely room. The view over the town was great and we hugely recommend Ella's breakfast - Icelandic and delicious! Ella was extremely helpful and even booked us a table for dinner in town. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
Cozy is the perfect description for Ellas B&B! The interior makes you feel like home, the bed is so comfortable that you don't want to step out of it anymore and the breakfast makes you stay even longer! Ella was available at any time, real kind and she gave us tips what to visit on the peninsula! Thanks again Ella!
Lovely spot and Ella was super welcoming. It was all lovely and clean. Dianna served up a wonderful breakfast and was very helpful. Ella was very considerate in putting us in seperate little apartment as a bigger group were arriving the next day. Just a shame the local restaurants seemed to have very limited winter hours, however we absolutely loved this area of Iceland and will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
My girlfriend and I arrived later than planned at Ella's B&B, but that wasn't a problem at all. Getting the keys and a quick tour of the grounds was very smooth and easy. I would say the listing is exactly as it's described, but that would do no justice. As wonderful as it sounds on Air Bnb it's even more wonderful in person! Everyone is so nice, genuine and helpful. And, if you request breakfast be prepared for an amazing, delicious meal! I would definitely stay here again and I'd recommend anyone else who's traveling in the area stay here as well.
The town, Stykkishólmur, is a very nice setting. Very comfortable and a convenient area to base out of for traveling the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
Nice room and one of the best breakfast in Iceland - host give to is good advices
The bathroom is not private.
We had a 9-days road trip around Iceland, moving from a place to another each day, and the B&B of Ella Birna has been one of our best experience !
The house is really enjoyable, full equipped and perfectly clean.
We loved the decoration : scandinavian, contemporary and cozy !
Thank you to Ella Birna for her efficient welcome.
In high word : highly recommended !
