Borgarnes derives its name from Borg, the birthplace of Egill Skallagrímsson
Welcome to Borgarnes Bed & Breakfast
Borgarnes BB is a Guesthouse located in the site of Englendingavík creek in the heart of Borgarnes’ historical center. We offer eight comfortable and spacious rooms with made up beds, a free WiFi, access to a big kitchen with all facilities and a comfortable living room.
Borgarnes BB is run by the hostess Bertha in a house that was built in 1947 for the chefs of the Cooperative society of the period, Kaupfélagið.
Englendingavík creek is an important part of the commercial history of Borgarnes, where a few of the oldest houses reside, and is a protected site in town. Its name is derived from the historical fact that the first houses that were built in Borgarnes, in 1877, were owned by Englishmen who started a business of salmon canning in the creek.
Borgarnes Bed & Breakfast is an ideal option for those who like quiet atmosphere by the sea, with only a few minutes walk to museums, expositions, cafes and restaurants.
It is popular among groups to rent the whole house for themselves over one or more nights, with or without the menu of the house.
