There is access to a kettle for heating water, and guests have access to a large variety of teas, instant coffee and hot chocolate mix.
Borgarnes BB is run by your hosts Bertha and Jay 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. Guests renting the entire house have full access to the kitchen.
