2/5 Poor

The bathroom reeked of sewer gas smell so strongly that we had to keep the door shut the whole time. There was no one in the office at 9 pm when two young men tried to check in even though check in was supposed to be available till 10.

Good spot, Poor services
Fun location - easy to get to hikes and ocean and play area for the kids. The service was bad. Pillows were basically garbage, no information about the property, no WiFi, an extremely long-list of all the things guests were suppose to do at checkout (clean toilets, mop floors, etc.) plus NO cleaning products provided other than a vacuum. Last night, we had booked two smaller cottages b/c ours was not available for the third night - yet, when we got there we were told it was, but b/c we booked through they would / could not refund the difference (almost $100).

we stayed in Cottage number 4 which had a bedbug infestation. We have been bitten so badly that we have had to receive medication. I have written a report about this last week which you did not publish. The communication is terrible with the host, there was about a metre of snow against the front door. We had no option but to dig it away with our bare hands which took around 10 mins, not even a shovel was provided. I am asking Expedia to request a refund on my behalf or i will publish photos on every site that this disgusting property advertises on.

One Night Stop along the Ring Road
We made a stop in Blonduos on our return leg of the Ring Road. It was a bit hidden from the road but luckily we had just stopped at the gas station to fill up. The small cottage was nice for two people. There were a few things I knew beforehand from previous reviewers but for the price I think it was a nice accommodation for a single night. There is a smell of sulfur when you open the faucets or take a shower but it was no big deal. Neither the TV or the wifi were working but we each brought along a book to read before sleeping. Didn't get to use the small kitchen but it had a small range and fridge. The restroom was open at the top of the wall to the bedroom/living room which was odd but unless you're not comfortable with the people you stay here with, it shouldn't be a problem. The check in was very easy, as soon as you go down the road from Road 1 the first building to your left should be where the office is located. Overall it was a good choice for the single night instead of driving through a winter storm.

All horrible. The location horrible, the cabin cute from outside but tiny inside and wasn’t clean inside. Just glad it was only 1 night.
