“Great little bed and breakfast”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the apartment run by Borgarnes B&B. It is down the road within walking distance of the main house. The owner was very friendly and sent us off with the keys and directions to the flat. It was a well equipped one bed flat with a kitchen, bathroom and lounge. The bedroom was small and the two single beds are only 2ft 6in wide but fine for sleeping !
We went to the restaurant at the settlement centre for dinner and this was excellent. Then after a good nights sleep we walked up to the bed and breakfast house for breakfast. This was our first night in Iceland and the breakfast was lovely, a great selection with beautiful home made breads, cereals, cold meats, cheeses, fruit, skyr, pancakes etc. A great selection.
The dining room has a lovely view of the sea which I am sure the bedrooms do too. I would recommend this guest house and also the town for a peaceful and interesting stop.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

This was my first experience staying in a Bed and Breakfast. I was apprehensive to say the least.

B & B was clean and the service was excellent. Our room overlooked the ocean, which was lovely. Breakfast was wonderful and probably one of the best meals I had while in Iceland. Items were plentiful and there was a great variety.

Family was very friendly and welcoming. I certainly hope all B & B's are like this one - they have set a high standard.

I would recommend this to anyone and would return.

The Borgarnes B&B is located right next to the interesting part of town, is run like a professional B&B (i.e. it isn't really someone's house...at least not anymore), and had nice enough bedding and furnishings.

The breakfast, which is not usually included in the price of lodging in Iceland, was amazing! We expected sliced meats, sliced cheeses, basic bread, cereal and yogurt. This breakfast included all of that, plus fresh baked bread (3 types), pancakes (seemed undercooked), smoked salmon, various types of nice cheeses, great juice & coffee & milk, jams, etc, etc, etc.

The one area they could improve: Add another small bathroom, with just toilet and sink. As the two bathrooms both have showers, they can be busy for long periods of time. Related: The upstairs shower has a flooding problem, which can probably be easily fixed. The bathrooms are, though, both quite fancy.

Great place to stay. Lovely room with wonderful view. Clean and nicely furnished. Shared bathroom very close. Clean. No problems.

Excellent breakfast in nice room. Good choices.

Helpful staff. Friendly and accommodating.

Good place to take a walk. Town is close by and so is an exercise track right on the water.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the water.

I loved the little town of Borganes. It is a place for peace and quiet and enjoying the coast. This bed and breakfast is a luxurious place to get away from the hustle and bustle of traveling or the city life. It is so cutely decorated and elegantly furnished. Breakfast included several types of cheeses, meats, different freshly-made breads, coffee, tea, several herring/fish options, muesli, other cereal, milk, yogurt, cucumbers and tomatoes, and I'm probably missing a couple things. Definitely worth the money!

Room Tip: I heard the upstairs rooms are nicer because of the view of the ocean, but the basement rooms are fa...

Very clean and comfortable gueshouse located right on the shore. Simple rooms with a very nice bathroom. There was a lovely sitting area outside by the sea and a living/dining area inside where breakfast was served in the morning. I appreciated the homemade pancakes (made to order!) and good selection of cheeses, meats, jams, breads, and juices. I have stayed in several small inns in Iceland and the breakfast served here was one of the better ones offered. Friendly innkeeper and great service. I would wholeheartedly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper-level room with a view to the sea.

Great position and a very friendly, clean and comfortable bed & breakfast right in the centre of Borgarnes and overlooking the sea. Right next to good restaurants so easy to get an evening meal. Great breakfast with a selection of fresh home-baked breads. Big kitchen for those wanting to self cater in the evening.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floor have the better view

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
