Cottages located in great place- don't need to travel a lot to see attractions. Personnel is very helpful- even in extreme situations. Houses well equipped in good condition. Outdoor bath tubes with hot water are great.

Spent one week at Minniborgir cottages - ideal for our holiday. Friendly staff on hand, nice and warm cottages - compact but contain everything you need, we enjoyed the hot tubs every evening, even when it snowed. Location is brilliant - many of the best tourist spots are within easy driving distance, especially Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir. You do need... More

The pros: cosy cottages, hot tubs outside, well equipped kitchen The cons: tiny bathroom, cottages are equipped with some old, at times even broken, furniture and interiors. All in all, average with a little extra thumbs up for the hot tubs.

We stayed at Minniborgir cottages for four nights in October. Unfortunately it rained our entire stay, but the cottage was more then we had hoped for and was really homely. The positives would be that the cottages are in a great location along the golden circle, 1 1/2 hours away from Reykjavik, and approximately an hour away from the geyser... More

Nice cozy cottage with all the basics, nothing fancy but great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. There are several of these cottages laid out among the property but was fortunate in hearing nothing at night.

We were 2 couples in two 30 meter cottages for two nights. The bed room area is very tight with a bunk bed above a small double. The mattress in one room was poor. Bathroom is small. The sitting area is also small. The couches in both living rooms were dirty and not nice. They had throw covers over them... More

The cottage was perfect. Plenty of room for a worn out family after hiking all over Southern Iceland. Comfy beds, great deck, loads of room to stretch out. The owners could not have been nicer, providing a soccer ball for my kids to play on the small field and supplying cards for us to play late nite poker. Make sure... More

We spent here 6 days in two 2-roomcottages. Host was very friendly, makes you feel at home. Cottages were convenient and clean. Restaurant and breakfast has a good value for money. I would like to be here again.
