The hotel facilities were very good--the rooms and common areas were clean and well appointed. It is especially wonderful to spend some time in the outdoor hot tub which is steps away from the harbor. The hotel hosts and staff were very welcoming. Our room faced the harbor and we could see eider and harlequin ducks and a bearded seal... More

I think this is the perfect place to stay while visiting Borgarfjordur. To be honest, one does not need to stay for more than 2 days in this small village in the east. It is mainly famous for spotting the Puffins as it is hardly a 5 mins drive from this guesthouse. So for such a short stay, the concept... More

This place was great. Right on the harbour, with seabirds and seals on the beach just outside the window. We had the back corner room which was roomy and light with a great view. The kitchen is well appointed and the breakfast was good. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet.

It was super clean, and they supplied alot of stuff- tea, coffee, laundry soap, lots of towels and breakfast was ready for us in our own fridge so we could eat right in the room. everyone was so nice....

After superlong day around ringroad we reached Blabjörg guesthouse in darkness. Owner was waiting for us and we got the room right away. We were the only customers and that felt luxurious. Biggest room of the house and bathroom right next to it. We tried the spa, but somehow it was complimentary for us. It was seriously not a joke.... More

The toughest bit about this guest house is actually getting to it. The tiny town Borgarfjordur is not on any main road, and it takes about 1 h 15 min from Egilsstadir on the 94 to get to it, via some challenging mountain roads (you don't need a 4WD but it helps, hehe). However, once there, it immediately becomes apparent... More

We came here due to the numerous good recommendations on TA and Booking.com but were really disappointed. Why? First of all the area around Borgarfjordor is nice but its not worth it especially with regard to the really bad gravel road you have to pass for 15-20km and if you are going down the east fjords anyway, there are much...

The guesthouse is situated in a wonderfully remote area of Iceland with great views across the fjord. The building and rooms were comfortable and modern with three bathrooms available across the 11 rooms. At the time we visited in September it was quiet with only 5 rooms being occupied so this wasn't an issue. The spa was great (2 hot... More

Nice location. Clean room, efficiency and newly built. Land Lady kind and polite. Cheap price and astonishing landscape. Adviceable to families. Enough space and huge toilet, well furnished. Only one little flaw (not to blame to the management) road gravelled for some chunks.

Blabjorg Guesthouse is modern, spot clean, and very simple. you have your room, you share the bathroom, and you enjoy the shared kitchen-dining-living room area as if you where home. the view is splendid and the spa facilities downstairs makes it a memorable place to stay. cherry on the cake, in the morning a self service breakfast is set up....
