Blabjorg Guesthouse Borgarfjordur Reviews

Amazing location Sep 16, 2017
How did we get there?. Having a car in Iceland is a freedom. I have planned quite well on this trip, we want to see a lot in a short time. When booking the accommodations far in advance I have to estimated our driving time, however, Iceland is a scenic country for a road trip without doubts! is just such a photogenic place on earth.

As always in Iceland the landscapes around us were beautiful: wide, empty, with mountains on the horizon. We sometimes drove for hours and didn't encountered anyone. We drove through to a mountain range and the asphalt road turned into a gravel road. A good gravel road that we could drive well with our regular car.

I just wanted to have a place to come home after a long day drive, and when planning this trip it was not very easy. So I reserved all our accommodation well in advance, I don't think is easy to knock on the door and asked if you have room free. First thing I know that the next town can be hell far away, so planning a trip is really necessary in my opinion

Apparently, the remote Borgarfjordur Eystri in the far east, a place to admire large numbers of puffins in Iceland. And so we drove from the town of Egilsstadir towards the fjord, so amazing place to see

The guest house is situated on a fishing village of Borgarfjordur Eystri. A very beautiful location where one can do some hiking or fishing, most people in the guest house stayed for a couple of days to hike in the area, but we only stay one night

As a guest house there is no reception to check-in, when we arrived there is nobody around, so we yell and we saw a girl who welcomes us. A very friendly girl she is the concierge

By entering the house we first entered to a small hall where we must take off the shoes, and then the kitchen where she receive us for registration, a nice cozy place and so clean

The room is nice of course we had a seaview. It's a beautiful place to stay and to relaxed. There is a spa and wellness, hot tub and sauna, I don't know if this free, we haven't use the facility

Is a shared bathroom - the bathroom is opposite to our room. Just one thing annoy me we had the roof window in our room, although there is a curtain but we still had daylight above our bed, sleeping wasn't easy. Summer in Iceland is long cleared, darked night is very late and short

Shared kitchen is not really big, and the window facing to the sea, so while sitting inside for dinner or breakfast is nice. We haven't cooked we dine out. Is a very small village, but there is restaurant and shops around.

Hot drinks like coffee and tea are available all day help yourself. This is a place to spoil

Breakfast included, self service in the kitchen. The landlord came in the morning to prepared everything. While having the breakfast the view of surroundings were so amazing.

I would say, this is really worth the price. Maybe is a little too expensive for a gussthouse, but worth every penny. Too bad we could only stay for one night, this really is a place to relax or for active traveler : going fishing, hikes or doing nothing is a place to be in Iceland.
