Ensku Husin Guesthouse is a historic hotel in west Iceland, recently converted from an old fishing lodge that dated back to 1884. Its authentic, traditional decor and ambience; eleven comfortable bedrooms; and fabulous location near the settlement of Borgarnes make it a top choice for those looking for a unique lodging experience.
Location & Nearby
The Ensku Husin Guesthouse is located on the coast of the wilderness of west Iceland, ten minutes drive north of Borgarnes. In this town, you can find all services required for travellers, as well as a wealth of culture; it is, for example, home to the Settlement Centre museum.
This position makes Ensku Husin a great base from which to explore the many natural sites of the west. The second-tallest waterfall in the country, Glymur, can be driven to in an hour, whereas the twin waterfalls of Barnafoss and Hraunfossar are just 50 minutes away. Ten minutes further from here is the highest flowing hot spring in Europe, Deildartunghver, which sits adjacent to the luxurious Krauama Spa.
It is also possible to use the Ensku Husin Guesthouse to easily reach the attractions of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The furthest point of this region, the subglacial volcano of Snaefelljokull, is just an hour-and-a-half hour away, allowing you to circumnavigate all its surrounding sites within a day.
Facilities & Amenities
The eleven rooms of the Ensku Husin Guesthouse can all accommodate two guests in comfortable double beds or a pair of singles; some have en suite bathrooms, although most shared pristinely maintained facilities. Because of the history of the accommodation, their atmosphere is cosy and rustic.
The living rooms and dining area are wonderful to relax in and to experience life as an Icelander of old, and Wifi is available throughout these beautiful communal areas.
If you wish, it is possible to organise breakfast, lunch and dinner at the traditional dining table, where you’ll be served classic Icelandic courses created with local ingredients.
