Very friendly staff
The walls are very thin. You can hear everything.
Large rooms Comfortable beds Modern and spacious Quiet location out of town, with easy access to local amenities Large fully equipped kitchen and small washing machine Very friendly accommodating hosts!
nice setting on an open field overlooking the fjord. good facility and clean.
Quiet location, but still close to the city, good Wi-Fi, caring hosts, ability to arrive in the middle of the night after advance arrangement.
Breakfast somewhat limited.
Our cabin with private facilities had stunning views and was clean light and very comfortable. Position was close to the ring road but far enough out of town to be amazingly quiet. We were able to do some nice walks, hire a bike and do a whale tour from Hauganes (saw a blue whale!). 3 rather than 4 nights probably would have been sufficient. Home made bread was very tasty for breakfast and our host Andrea was very friendly.
Sometimes the water drainage from the dishwasher and washing maching really smelt out the guesthouse area. I'm glad we weren't staying in there.
The location, the hosts & the cottages
Hot tub and general situation of the property.
Loo/Bathroom is through the dining area.
We stayed in a stand-alone cottage that was warm and cozy. The heat was already on when we arrived and the temperature remained very comfortable throughout our stay. The room was a decent size with 2 single beds, a desk with a chair, a small coffee table with two small couches, a closet and a private bathroom. Everything was clean and tidy, including the linens and towels. The main building is a short walk from the cottage. It contained other guest rooms (with shared bathrooms) and also the communal kitchen. The kitchen had sufficient utensils and a microwave for cooking basic meals. The daily breakfast was mostly home-made, with eggs, different kinds of breads, muffins/pancakes/waffles, cold cereal, yogurt, salted fish, milk, juice, coffee and tea. It was nothing fancy but more than enough to start the day. The owners, Andrea and Kristjan, were the friendliest and nicest people we met in Iceland. We were stuck in Akureyri due to heavy snowstorms, and had to extend our stay for 2 days. Andrea and Kristjan helped us check road conditions and call the road authorities to get the latest updates. Since we had to catch a flight to Greenland, they helped to check flight availability so that we could fly from Akureyri to Reykyavik, and even negotiated with our rental car company to lower the cost of abandoning the car in Akureyri! We only had to pay for breafast during the 2 extra days as they didn't charge us anything for occupying the cottage. On the last day, they even offered to change our towels (which we declined to be environmentally friendly). We sincerely appreciated their hospitality and helpfulness during those 2 restless days! If we ever visit Akureyri (in the summer next time), we'll definitely return to Guesthouse Petursborg!
The property is north of town, right on the Fjord. Beautiful view and VERY quiet location.
The wi-fi has limited range. If you want to use the internet from one of the guest houses, go into the main house where the signal is much better.
-Quiet location -private cabin -ABF -nice owner
Poor wifi in room
Petersbourg provides good value for the money. We received a free upgrade to a cottage which was nice. Good breakfast served in basement of main house. Clean.
