Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed here over my 40th birthday, we rented a 4x4 (needed in January!) with a satnav and found the cottages without too much of a problem. The chalet numbers were hard to see but after a quick call to the owners we found ours (no.6). The snow was falling but the roads around the site were kept clear by the owners. 6 of us stayed and were very comfortable, everything we needed in the kitchen and the bedrooms were fine - a few more pillows would have been good but that is a very minor point! The hot tub is very easy to use and is quite something in the snow! Extremely helpful owners who offered to come out at night when the cold water feed froze - the hot was fine as it is hot spring fed!! Underfloor heating was amazing- no chance of being cold even at -16!!! The Aurora Borealis came out and despite the well lit site, we had excellent views of them (best birthday present ever!). The shop and restaurant on site looked good although it was closed for the off season. Selfoss is not far...

Thanks a lot for your kind words, we always welcome you back. Best regards Team Minniborgir

The cottages are easily reached in 2 hours from Kevlavik airport. We used the cottage as a base for day trips in SW Iceland. For this purpose Minniborgir Cottages are excellent. We made it even to Jøkulsarlon (Icelake) in the East along Ringroad1. In June 24 hours daylight make this possible (we returned to Minniborgir at 2 in the night). All other highlights are easy day trips from Minniborgir. The attractions keep you busy for at least 2 weeks. We rented a ordinary car and were able to reach all attractions without any problem.
The cottages are comfortable and very well equipped. Nearest shopping is in Selfoss. 22 km away (we recommend Bonus marked at road 1 direction to Hella). Minniborgir is currently extended with additional cottages and a restaurant and other facilities. This leads to considerable construction noise during the week. Therfore we only give 4 stars instead of excellent. The situation may improve after the construction work.

Thank you very much

About the neighborhood
Minniborgir Cottages is located 100 meters from road 35. That road is part of the Golden Circle. From our location you can see wide to all directions and you can even see up to the highlands on a good sunny day. Since we are in the urban we dont have light pollution so that is perfect spot to watch the North Lights when possible.
Few hundred meters away is a small grocery store with petrol station, there is as well nice swimming pool.
