“A wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

We only spent one night but I will testify that the room was spotless, the bathrooms clean, the linen was freshly laundered and sented, and the kitchen was well supplied. When in Gindavik, this is a great place to stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

I stayed at the Guesthouse Borg for a night before heading for a remote part of the Reykjanes peninsula in very cold and windy weather. It was a cosy house, surprisingly busy for the time of year, and it clearly enjoys a great reputation among travellers. A few days later I checked in for another couple of nights, just before some cold and wet weather moved in. Basically, guests get the run of the house, not just their bedrooms. They can use the TV lounge, washing machine and kitchen, and some of the food in the kitchen is available if you fancy something to eat or drink during the day. At breakfast time, you simply help yourself to whatever you want, and you're only asked to put the dishes in the dishwasher. There is also a computer with internet access on the top landing of the house. The people who run the place are very friendly and helpful and live in the basement of the house. I'm hoping to visit the place again later in the summer, and I really wish that there were more guesthouses as good as this, and at this sort of price, more widely available around Iceland.
