We stayed for one night during a tour of the South Coast. Like most other accommodation, it's self check in and is simple and easy. The cottages/huts are clean and have great views out from the main living area. Our only downside was the awful (sewer/drain) smell in the bathroom, which was immediately apparent when entering the cottage. This was our only issue with the accommodation and was fine for one night if we kept the bathroom door closed. I don't think we would have been so 'accepting' had it been for a couple of nights.
Anyone who gives these delightful cabins less than a top review must surely be accustomed to staying only at the Ritz! I mean really, they are amazing! What's to love, as of my 2019 stay: 1. Just a mile or so from Route 1 (Ring Road), yet you feel like you're in a secluded forest 2. Very nicely appointed kitchen with every thing you need to cook your own meals (pans, pots, cutting boards, utensils, toaster, hot pot, coffee poor, etc) and everything's shiny and new 3. Spare, but quite adequate living room furnishings, modern working TV, fast WiFi, sleek bathroom design and fixtures 4. Lots of big Windows, perfect for stalking the elusive Aurora 5. Simple, efficient check in via PIN and key box. Why don't more places do this, too keep costs down? 6. The place is immaculate! I wish my home were half as clean. Everything, from refrigerator to shower to bed linens was spotless. OK Some things aren't perfect: 1. Bedroom is tiny. But who cares when you've got a whole living room? Though I admit a small nightstand with a single led lamp would be a welcome addition. 2. My unit had a tiny hairline crack in the sink, and there was a mysterious leaking water noise in the bathroom. But those are minor. I got a great winter rate from Hotels.Com, which perhaps made me super forgiving, But honestly, I wish I were staying here 4 or 5 nights! 3. Google maps had difficulty. I got "Can't find this place" messages repeatedly, despite trying different methods. I kept trying - by cut & paste, by going through the places own website, Hotels.com listing. Etc. Not sure what I finally did to make it click, but I breathed a sigh of relief when it did!
We stayed here for one night at the end of our Iceland trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cabins are small but cosy and are very modern compared to many of the other accommodations we stayed in during our trip. The kitchen is totally adequate and the beds were comfortable. The location is really nice as well - away from the main ring road, nestled between the peaks and super close to many of Iceland's best waterfalls. Highly recommended!
Loved it here and just didn’t want to leave. Cosy, peaceful cabin that’s clean and modern. Perfect little kitchen to make food and lovely sitting room to relax. The views are breathtaking. Couldn’t recommend more.
There is no front desk at this property. You just have to go to your cabin and get your key out with a pin. All of this info is sent to you beforehand to your email so keep an eye out. The little cabin was clean and the kitchen has a fridge and TV. It is very private and offers a nice view, both during the day and at night. The bedroom was small and only enough room for the bed. Only two pillows on the bed. The bathroom is beautiful but the towels had holes in them and so did the pillow covers. They need to be replaced as soon as possible. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay here.
The accommodation itself is perfect, and makes you wonder if you really need anything more in your own life - it's modern, efficient and cozy - and that big window lets in a lot of wonderful natural light, with views to match! HOWEVER - the Wifi was POOR, and completely erratic, which was highly annoying. Booking through Hotels.com - the property indicates they will send a 'welcome' email one week before, which they didn't do, and this kind of confuses the check-in process. There is no front desk (this was indicated before) but there is a 'free phone' to call someone who assists with the check in process. Both numbers provided were either engaged or out of order - I finally drove to the houses, where a sign on each house indicates that the management can be reached via text or whatsapp - which was responded to immediately. A few guests who had troubles with english were really struggling, and calling their own travel agents, even though I tried explaining what they should do. This process can really be streamlined. Other than that - this is a wonderful place. Take note - the kitchen only has a stovetop - no microwave or oven.
For the location and amazing view towards the mountain range, I'm giving Welcome Holiday Homes a 'very good' rating, however for service and cleanliness I'd rate it as 'average'. The cabins are very small but well-designed, warm and comfortable. Located beneath the Eyjafjöll mountains, the view is fantastic, especially as night falls and the mountain range appears in silhouette. It's also an enjoyable and scenic walk of about an hour to the Seljavellir pool. On the downside, the bathroom was very sparse with no toiletries or hairdryer. On asking if one could be provided, I was met with an unhelpful and curt email. Considering how new the cabins are, we also thought the bedding seemed a bit worn and the pillows were old/yellowing. Despite this, the location and outlooks won us over and we would stay again.
We really enjoyed our nights stay here. Compact little house with cosy bedroom and living area. Clean and simple but well supplied with cooking equipment and washing up supplies. Smart TV a nice touch, managed to watch some interesting documentaries on Iceland on Netflix! Would return here, we enjoyed catering for ourselves for a change and it felt like a home for the night. Woke up to lots of snow which was nice!
We stayed with Welcome Holiday Homes twice on our trip to Iceland. In your own little cabin you have a kitchenette with plates and cups etc. the bathroom had heated floors. TV had capability to use Netflix. Very clean. I liked staying here because it’s very close to a trail that leads to a pool in the mountains with an incredible view. Also, very close to two major waterfalls. Only drawback was the room is very tiny but we made it work.
Nicht weit von Vik findet man die Welcome Holiday Homes. Es sind kleine süße Cabins mit Platz bis zu vier Leuten (mit Ausziehbett im Wohnzimmer). Moderne Einrichtung, schönes Bad und eine Küche mit vorhandenen Wasserkocher und Toaster! Also alles was man braucht. Wirklich gemütlich und definitiv einen Aufenthalt wert. Zudem ist man sehr nahe an vielen attraktiven Orten und einer Reihe von berühmten Wasserfällen! Kann ich nur empfehlen, vor allem für Paare.
