Minniborgir Cottages

We loved these cottages. The location is so peaceful. The staff and the owners were very friendly. The place was so clean. We stayed only one night but wish I could stay there longer. It is conveniently located on a tour of the Golden a Circle. We would definitely return to this cottage.

We spent 3 enjoyable days staying in one of the 30sq. m. cottages doing day trips to nearby sights like Geysir, Gulfoss, Langjökull, Stöng / Gjain and Kerið. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well-equipped, while the continental breakfast buffet offered a good choice.

The new restaurant had its soft opening during our stay with a limited dinner menu. Best to tell them in advance at breakfast time that you're planning to eat there that evening, until they get more established. The salmon we had was excellent!

Food and bathroom products can be bought easily in Selfoss. There is also a small shop the other side of the nearby junction for anything you've missed. As is normal in self catering, bathroom soaps and shampoos are not provided

Easy to reach and find, although we ended up asking directions from the mini supermarket with the same name (just a bit down the road from the accommodation). The cottage we rented was very well equipped and we spent 3 nights there, enjoying the hot-tub every single one. The bedrooms had bunk-beds, but the lower one was for two-persons, alleviating any discomfort. We arrived outside reception hours, but the cottage was open for us with the key inside. Well within range from Keflavik airport.

Recently stayed at Minniborgir whilst on a tour of Iceland. Easy to find location about 25mins north of Selfoss and within easy reach of the major sites on the golden triangle and about 1.5 hour drive from Keflavik. We were upgraded on arrival to a cabin with a hot tub which was really nice. Our cabin was clean, well-appointed and very comfortable. The site is currently in the process of building it's own restaurant which should be open by the end of May. This will be most welcome otherwise it's a trip down to Selfoss for food. Overall a nice site with friendly and helpful staff. More information provided in cabins on local amenities would be helpful.

Loved Iceland and staying in this self catering cottage really added to our stay.

The area is peaceful & tranquil. Cottages feel secluded even though they are quite close together.

The kitchen is well equipped with all that you would need. Good dining area for meal times. Beds were warm and comfy.

Hot tub was amazing and a fabulous way to end the day.

We stayed here on our honeymoon. Very clean and nicely decorated cottage with our own hottub, a very nice surprise! It is centrally located near Geysir, Gulfoss and Thingvellir. Small croceries you can get on the other side of the road. Need more? Selfoss is only 20 kilometres away. We would definately recommend Minniborgir.

Not knowing what to expect when we arrived after driving all day, we were surprised with an upgrade to a larger cottage! It was beautiful, and quiet. It's the perfect place to stay while venturing out to explore South Iceland. Can't wait to go back!
