I found the Hestaport Cottages while doing online research for my upcoming trip to Iceland only about one month prior (this short timeline may only work in the off-season; I visited in December). It was the right stopping point distance-wise for my road trip around the country via the Ring Road, and I couldn't have been more pleased with this charming cottage and setting! It was bright and clean inside, and very comfortable. The outside is magical too! We took a late night dip in the geothermal pool in the center of the cottages, when suddenly The Northern Lights appeared - what an experience! Several other cottage guests saw them and came outside for the 90 minute showing, and we all took photos for each other and visited. If we hadn't been on a strict driving schedule, I would have loved to have stayed more than one night. I highly recommend the experience of staying at Hestaport Cottages!

This was a very nice place to stay, the porch and the hot tub were the highlights.great location for a drive around the ring road. Water was a little sulphuric but guess that’s too be expected. Too hot in the cabin for my friend. Easy to find and good communication from the office staff
