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....

Bakkagerdi/Borgarfjordur Eystri has one of the most stunningly beautiful locations in Iceland, and this guesthouse is full of bright, cheery rooms with large windows to take advantage of the views. During the late spring and summer, birdwatchers will delight in the number of species feeding on the shore just below, and hikers have several trails from which to choose, just... More

We had a reservation through Booking.com that somehow got overlooked. So we showed up and they had no rooms for us. However the response of Auri ( sp. ?) was amazing. First she offered us a new apartment that wasn't quite ready to rent yet for one of our couples and arranged with a neighboring guesthouse to find a room... More

We really loved our stay in Blábjörg Guesthouse, especially the spa - laying in the hot tub in the evening and relaxing in the spa was so nice. Borgarfjörður Eystri is definitely worth seeing and we will be back very soon :)

My friends, and husband and I (4 adults) recently traveled to Iceland for an 8 day trip. We stayed in Borgarfjördur Eystri at Blabjörg Guesthouse in order to view the puffin colony that is there during the summer, as we did not have time to make it out to the West Fjords. Blabjörg was surprisingly priced very reasonably in comparison... More
