We stayed here on New Year's Eve. The apartment was easy to find. The apartment was clean, spacious and cosy. The decor was typical Icelandic, white, modern and homely. The small kitchen was adequate for simple meals. We enjoyed the fireworks from the church and chatting to the locals.

We were 3 guests but the property could have accommodated 5-6 without it feeling crowded. The lounge and kitchen area are spacious and light with views out over the town. Helga and Hafþór were both very helpful when booking via email/website and on arrival, and this apartment is clean and professionally managed without being spectacular. Highly recommended.

Beautiful spot right in town. Not much open late at night so we went over to the main hotel for dinner. About an hour drive from Reykjavik. A good first night place to stay if you are doing the ring road in that direction. Bit pricey, but so is the whole island!

We needed a place for 1 night for our drive down from the fjords to south Iceland. Borgarnes seemed like a good place to stop. We rented a studio at Egils, and it suited our needs just fine – traveling party is a couple with 1 young child. This is a fine place to stay for 1-2 nights. Don't forget... More

We stayed in the apartment which was very good clean and everything worked. Nice position in Borganes which itself was better than we expected. Thoroughly recommend the local bakery. Nice walk around the peninsula.

I stayed 6 nights in a studio apartment. The kitchen has a stove with 2 plates, a microwave, a fridge with a small icebox. There is no oven. The bathroom is really large and even has a washing machine. Wireless lan worked without problems and was really fast. There are some restaurants in walking distance. The next supermarket & gas...

We stayed two nights at Egils Guesthouse in unit #8. It is a lovely 2 level cottage. The kitchen is nicely equipped, the living and dining areas are an open layout. The bedroom on the main level is cozy & comfortable. The bathroom was a good size but the sink is the really tiny and makes using it a challenge.... More

We loved our stay in the 2bedroom apartment. It was a perfect stop and we had a great eating area so we ordered for take in. It was in a great location in the city right next to the Settlement Center which had a great restaurant. I was able to do a nice run and the town was cute. Bedrooms... More
