“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

First of all - this place has an outstanding view. The best we got during our 12 day stay in Iceland. This was our favorite B&B, and our favorite place we stayed, overall. The landlady is so sweet and made an awesome pancake breakfast. The house is G O R G E O U S, completely updated and spacious. We've already planned a return trip in the winter, and plan on staying here for at least two nights, then.

Room Tip: Double room with shared bathroom worked for my boyfriend and I.

We were looking for a town and accommodation within striking distance of KEF for next day departure. Arriving in Borgarnes we went to the Visitor Center and they referred us to the Borgarnes B&B. What a stroke of luck.

The B&B is in a lovely large house right on the beach. Striking views and grounds. Our room was with shared bath but we were the only guest that night and the bath was something out of an architectural magazine. The kitchen was available for your use and coffee/tea always available. The breakfast was nothing special. Bread/cheese/prepared meat. Coffee was very good.

The town itself is certainly worth a visit. It reminded my wife and me of Mendocino California. We just happened to stumble on the town and B&B and wished we had a couple more days to stay and explore the area.

Borgarnes is a quiet little seaside town enjoying spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, ocean and fjords. The B&B makes the most of this setting and offers a clean, comfortable and well-appointed venue perfect for a few nights accommodation. You've come all the way here so stay a few nights. The house is relaxing enough to just sit on the couch and watch the sunset (or storms roll in) or the more adventurous can explore the immediate environs, trails and beaches. The caretaker was very nice making us feel comfortable and ensuring we were well fed for breakfast. Overall, the B&B is as unique and wonderful destination as Borgarnes and highly recommended to any adventure seekers, couples, solo travelers and families alike. While romance is a term usually reserved for elegance associated with grand cities like Paris or tropical settings like Hawaii, there was a beautiful eccentricity about the Borgarnes B&B that was romantic indeed.

So relaxing, peaceful and picturesque we had to come back for another night.
Although we were on a tight budget, the views, comfort and access to garden and small beach make this delightful B&B definately worth the splurge.

Nice location and nice house with a garden and sea-view both from the common area/ livingroom and from some of the rooms. Extremly clean and well kept. Welcoming host and excellent breakfast. Laidback atmosphere and child-friendly. We would definately stay here again!

We stayed here for one night. We had driven very far that day from Husavik and did not have a place to stay because our original plan was not going to work because a bridge had washed out in the south of Iceland, so we had to drive back the way we came. Many places did not have any vacancies. We arrived on the doorstep probably around 9 pm and asked if she had any room available, which she did because someone had not shown up. We had a lovely stay there-- breakfast was amazing, and the living room and kitchen were modern and had great views of the fjord and ocean. It was good value, too-- less money than we had paid for less service. I highly recommend this place if you are staying in Borgarnes.

This B&B is located in the small town of Borgarnes.
Originally we booked a room without privat facilities but were upgraded to room with private facilities when we arrived, as the house was empty and we were the only guests at this night. This is a great service.

The location is very quiet and you have a stunning view all over the Fjourd.

Breakfast was plenty and lots of different iclandic food was provided.

We can highly recommend this B&B.

The only negative thing we can say is that the town of Borgarnes doesn't really offer anything except of the Settlement Centre.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Founded in February 2008, famous for the hostess's breakfast buffet, Borgarnes Bed & Breakfast is a favorite spot for people from all over the world who want to relax for shorter or longer periods in a quiet and relaxing ambiance and at the same time have the opportunity to enjoy a big part of Iceland. We are located in the heart of Borgarnes, in Englendingavik creek, the protected historical center of town, with an outstanding view over the mysterious Borgarfjordur fjord. Only a walking distance from the sea, the Icelandic Settlement Center, restaurants and the playground Bjossarolo this Borgarnes's renowned Guesthouse is in a house that was built for the rich people of Borgarnes approximately 70 years ago. Even though it is popular as an accommodation for families, couples and individuals, with its 8 bedrooms, big kitchen and dining rooms it is a good idea for little groups to rent the whole house for one or more nights to enjoy a time of their own. As such the house has accommodated recreation week-ends, birthday parties, confirmation celebrations, just to give some examples. From Borgarnes you have a variety of shorter and longer hikings and you can do day tours on Borgarfjordur region, Dalir region, Snaefellsnes peninsula, Vatnsnes peninsula in the north, the Golden circle of the South coast and even go for the highland where you can have a taste of Iceland's second largest glacier. The staff is more than willing to help you organize your own ideas of a relaxing or an adventurous day before you head off in the morning. ... more   less
