This hotel is really isolated, surrounded by rocky hills and with a view of a lake. It is basic - we had a twin room as there were no doubles left. It had a sink which was handy, as the bathrooms and toilets are shared. They are clean, with good hot water (of course!!) and when we were there it...

We were a group of friends and we stayed at the hotel during a photographic tour of Iceland. The rooms had already been paid for, but the staff tried to make us pay for them again ( in fact they had already made a few of us pay but I asked for a refund). The place is ugly, very low...

Located far off the "beaten tracks" this little family run hotel is located in the middle of nowhere. Although the rooms are basic with no ensuite bathroom it is the people who run the place that make the difference. They make you feel like being a family member. Hvitserkur is a point of interest to visit near by. Enjoy this...

The place can be slightly hard to find, but it is WELL worth it. I stayed at Hotel Borgavirki with my fiancé and we were thrilled with the high level of hospitality shown to us. The owners are new, but that doesn't mean that they don't know how to make you feel at home. Their children are adorable, and the...

I stayed at Borgavirki for almost three weeks. I never planned on being there for such a lengthy period, but the hospitality of Kristbjorg and Guni combined with the stunning nature we were surrounded by captivated my heart and demanded that I draw out my plans in the area. I spent my days drinking coffee while effortlessly focused on a...

our family thoroughly enjoyed our experience in this rather "off the beaten path" hotel. the dear family who runs it had taken over only a couple of weeks before so they had not had opportunity to fix it up much but it was very neat and clean. the food was wonderful for both dinner and breakfast the next morning. the...

When we booked here on our tour of Iceland, we had made the choice based on the photos of the site. It looked like a pretty good bet. However, while you are searching for the place along a beautiful stretch of dirt road (really beautiful), you almost pass by. We got there in the mid-afternoon. The place seemed deserted and...

This guest house was just bought by a charming young family. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Their kids are adorable and playful and the food... DELICIOUS!!!

After about 20 min down a dirt road and in the fog- we were very pleased when we found our hotel.....out in the middle of nowhere.

This is truly grotty. I am at a loss to understand how some travellers can find it acceptable, particularly at £80 a night. It is a bit like a youth hostel, with narrow corridors of rooms and a central dining room and games room. There isn't a kitchen so you cannot cook for yourself, and the food is expensive and...
