My daughter won an all-expenses paid trip to iceland. It was a promotion. We were put up at the Borg.
Our rooms were gorgeous. One of them had a fabulous jacuzzi tub (great after horsebackriding!). The beds were comfortable. King size with two separate duvets so no fighting over covers!
Staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, from the front desk to Housekeeping. They knew we were not paying our way and they still treated us like the highest paying of guests.
The breakfast buffet was sumptuous. Something for every taste under the sun. From cereals, fresh fruit, and yogurt all the way to pates, smoked fish, fancy cheeses, bacon, eggs, and sausages. Aside from mini croissants and mini chocolate croissants, there was a sinfully delicious multi-grain bread always freshly baked with the perfect crustiness on top.
My one complaint was room service. Too tired after a busy day to venture out again, we ordered room service and were bitterly disappointed. Oh, it looked pretty enough, a lot of care taken to make presentation make up for the lack of substance. Cheeses, fruit and sad sad sad soggy white slice toasted bread. We shared what was meant to be a dish for one at the cost of $36! Ironically the coffee we got with room service was far better than the breakfast coffee. Probably made in the dining room where the espresso machines are!
Even so, if I come back to Iceland on my own dime, I will no doubt stay at the Borg again!
