Lilja Guesthouse is an exceptional place to stay along the southern coast of Iceland. The owner is very nice and accommodating. The facilities are pristine, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. The showers are great, there is good free coffee in the lobby, and the included breakfast is hearty and good quality. The guesthouse is a 25-minute drive from the town of Hofn, which has great restaurants to choose from for the evening. We are very happy we chose to stay at Lilja Guesthouse.
Very nice hotel with friendly staff. We stayed in the new building which has very large and nice rooms. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel is located on road 1 and the access is easy.
Best hotel experience during our 9 days in Iceland.
Although it’s a “guesthouse” it’s a hotel room with a private bathroom. New about a year old, nice comfortable modern clean room. Coffee machine in the common sitting area – free use, great. Staff friendly & helpful. Situated on a farm with nice views of surrounding mountains. Lots of sheep and newborn. Enjoyed dinner. Good breakfast spread.
