We have just returned from a 4 day stay at Guesthouse Borgartun. The guesthouse was very clean, quiet, comfortable and provided very good relaxed cold buffet breakfast. Plenty of hot water and powerful shower as you would expect for Geothermal powered country. Guesthouse is very close to the sea front, swimming pool and a short walk from the old town and restaurants.
Hassel free stay. I did enjoy the sweet pickled herring at breakfast.
All the excursions & whale watching picked up from the Hotel and excursions were as described in the brochure (Reykjavik excursions). The light nights at this time of year are worth experiencing - different intensity and quality of light.
We wish to say a big thank you to the Hotel manager who sorted out our transfer to the airport when the bus did not come and pick us up. Thank you and sorry for waking you so early.
