“What an amazing place! Fantastic situation and wonderful outlook over the valley. Extremely comfortable beds and first class cuisine. An attentive host – I wish we were staying all summer rather than for just a night. Many thanks for a great visit! Oh yes and the cuisine – our trout was superb – better than any restaurant. Our best wishes.”

“Dear Jon and Gudrun. You made us feel at home on Eastern Iceland and we felt it like it was our home. You made this already beautiful part of Iceland be more amazing and a wonderful experience. You have an amazing farm and it is perfect in every detail. We’ll let everyone in Brazil know about it and I really hope to be back sometime.”

“This is really a wonderful place. We had a very lovely stay here. The decorations and the design of the house is great and we love the dinner and breakfast as well. It’s a pity that we could only stay here for 1 night. Would definitely like to stay here for longer time! PERFECT!”

“Dear Gudrun, Jon and Helga. Silfurberg is a great place, relaxing, tranquil and hence we had a good sleep, despite all the light during the night. You are great hosts and made us feel at home. You have put in a lot of effort. The scenery is marvelous and indeed breathtaking awesome. The hotel itself is of the highest standard and one can see and smell that this resembles your good taste and touch of class. Though we only stayed here for one night, we managed to use the sauna and hot tub. Also very good quality. Many thanks for a lovely stay!”

“Gudrun and Jon. You have a beautiful home and you have given us beautiful hospitality and delicious food. You have thought of everything and created a serene, luxurious retreat in splendid isolation. We could not ask for a more wonderful experience in Iceland and for a warmer welcome.”
– Married couple from Australia, June 2014

“We came to Iceland to experience nature and get away from it all. What we didn’t expect was such wonderful hospitality combined with exceptional amenities, furnishings and architecture. I’ve been to over 50 countries and have seldom stayed at a home as well designed and in such beautiful surroundings as here. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we look forward to returning soon.”

“Dear Gudrun, Jon and Helga. What to say about our stay at your place? It is in a few words amazing, wonderful and perfect! The room, the jacuzzi, the sauna, the living room, all were very enjoyable and of a marvelous high standard with a lot of small details of nature included. The dinner and breakfast were very good. And last but not least: your dedication to serve your guests was marvelous. Thank you for this very nice stay and we will remember this spot for a long time.”
– Married couple from The Netherlands, June 2014

“Thank you very much! We had a wonderful stay in Silfurberg! We really appreciated your hospitality and very warm welcome. Everything was perfect: a wonderful place, great design, whirlpool with fantastic view and a very nice dinner with wonderful wine and a very “divine” fish soup – we will surely not forget this stay and hoped we had some more days to spend here. Thanks also for the soup recipe and for fixing the shoes. MERCI! DANKE SCHÖN!”

“It has been a real pleasure to stay at such a nice place. We are pretty sure this must be the best accommodation in Iceland. The dinner was great! Thank you for everything. We’ll always remember your welcoming, the atmosphere of this place, and the great food we’ve eaten.“
– Married couple from Spain, July 2014

“Thank you for your friendliness. We’ve been in Iceland 6 days, saw some hotels and many people, but Silfurberg – the house and the people – was the best we’ve ever seen (even comparing other countries!). We hope we come back some day to this wonderful country – maybe because of it’s just like our home country Tirol in Austria! The best wishes and thank you for all. Es war wunderschön bei euch!”

“It’s magical that such an amazing farm receives guests! We enjoyed our 2-nights stay very much. Unique interior, wonderful landscapes and tasty dinners made our stay unforgettable.”
– Married couple from Russia, August 2014

“We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Silfurberg. The hosts are truly welcoming and full of good advice on the region but also broader Iceland. Food was spectacular every night and we will probably need to go on a diet for the next week! Finally we love the interior and exterior design of this unique and charming place. We will come back!”
– Couple from France, August 2014

“Our dream has come true in this place. Lovely family, most beautiful place, fresh air, fresh food. We are lucky and honored to be with you and share your lovely place and home. Love you all.”

“Wir haben uns in Ihren wunderschönen Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. Nach der entspannenden Sauna und ein Bad im Hot Tub fühlten wir uns wie neu geboren. Das herrliche Dinner in dem wunderschönen Ambiente und der liebevollen “Service” von Helga und Jon bleiben unvergesslich! Wir kommen wieder – aber dann bleiben wie hier länger!”
– Married couple from Austria, August 2014

“We regret leaving so soon. Silfurberg is not only a brilliantly designed place, but also offers exceptional hospitality in the middle of a magnificent environment. A pearl, and the highlight of our Iceland trip. Please continue to be so obviously happy with your “hobby”. Warm regards.”
– Family from The Netherlands, August 2014

“Thank you so much for your hospitality and friendliness. We loved every moment. Such a refreshingly welcoming atmosphere. Nothing says it better than my daughter: “ This is the best hotel. I don´t want to leave.” Looking forward to coming back! What a beautiful home and family. Thank you for your kindness, generosity and for being the perfect hosts. We so enjoyed our stay. Your home is delightful. Your cooking is stupendous. And the California Red wine helped us feel right at home. We will be back and recommend to all our friends.”
