Travelling with two grandchildren we chose Minniborgir with jacuzzi in each hut. First night we woke up with hundreds of flees in our beds. Itching very badly. No sleep after 03.00. Next morning the manager told us that this was common in the countryside, and you should never open the window in the bedroom. We planned to leave after the first night , but we were offered a different cabin the remaining two nights. This worked OK, but we never left windows or door open. Our request for refund for the first night was not accepted, the manager advised us to contact booking.com where we had made the reservation. No response yet from booking.com. It could be a good place for families travelling with children, but we can not recommend it because of the flees.
Went for a quiet retreat and recharge with my wife. A perfect location short 1hr distance from Reykjavík. Cottage was clean and comfy and hot tub perfect and accessible. Staff was very friendly. The prize was affordable. Restaurant was nice and I do recommend the classic burger.
The cottages were nice and warm during this wintery March. We enjoyed the restaurant, dinner & breakfast. Everyone was very helpful, including the owner, both with our rooms and advising us on driving with the tricky weather. Great place to stop on the Golden Circle!
Beautiful set of small cottages located just a short (15 or so) minute drive from Selfoss. The cottages are quite small (and ours had a bunk bed) and don't come with shampoo or conditioner (which we were prepared for as we had been road-tripping through various cities). The kitchen has everything you need - cutlery, mugs, pots, pans, etc. The reception staff were fabulous and lent us some foil that we needed for our baking. They were also kind and granted us late check-out given that there was a storm the day of check-out. We also ate at the restaurant at night and, although empty, food was absolutely delicious, good value for money, and we were able to call ahead and order so the wait was short when we arrived. A set of 5-6 villas share three jacuzzis - we did not use these as the weather was freezing but I can imagine these would be fun! Worth noting you need a car if you are planning to stay here as the cottages are isolated and there is nothing nearby - the nearest town is Selfoss.…
We stumbled upon this place driving around the golden circle and was looking for somewhere to eat. Although we were the only customers in the restaurant, the staff were welcoming and we had a lovely meal that was cooked perfectly. The burger and panini were lovely and so were the hot chocolates. Absolutely fantastic place and great value for money. Would visit again.
