Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we will post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We will also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉Paved parking lot. Govt. should improve road access into the town.
눇Breakfast was excellent. The location was wonderful. The service was excellent. The bird hide just outside town was very impressive - well equipped and well situated.

눉I liked everything
눇The Hotel is spotless clean and the room is very large with a good bathroom. Excelente. Wish we had stayed longer. For bird watching lovers THIS is the place. 10m drive from the hotel we can see Puffins 1 meter from us. There's a huge colony very near and we have every conditions to photograph them.

눉The white - knuckle drive over the mountains on an otherwise scenic trip to the town. The breakfast was great but cost extra.
눇Interesting town with nice harbour and fantastic viewing area for puffin watching up close.
23 May 2016
눉Breakfast is not included, despite what guidebooks claim. Restaurant was closed at dinner.
눇Comfortable, quiet room with a nice bathroom and lovely view of the hills surrounding the tiny, charming town. Friendly, knowledgeable owners. I dream of going back!
15 May 2016
눉Well,I hate to say it but the breakfast was a little sparse compared to the other places I've stayed at. Nevertheless I will stay here the next time I visit this incredibly beautiful little village!
눇Where to start? Well,this hotel is located in one of the most picturesque places I've ever seen!The room was the second largest during my 10 day stay in Iceland,second only to the presidential suite at Fosshotel Eastfjords,which I was lucky enough to get. Very comfortable and clean room,with an awesome shower!The view from my room was simply breathtaking!The staff was vert friendly and accomodating, pointing out the various sights around town and giving me a great suggestion on where to eat and what to order. The Alfa Cafe is very picturesque and the fish soup was absolutely to die for! Don,t pass it up!

눉The GPS couldn't find the place but the area was very small and we knew what the building looked like so we just drove around looking for the hotel.
눇The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and available activities. The area was absolutely incredible. Best place that we have stayed at on our entire trip.
10 May 2016
눉Visited in low season so would have appreciated tea or coffee making facilities, even if shared.
눇Amazing location, generous sized rooms, super clean & comfy and great staff.
13 September 2015
눉I know it's not staff fault, but road 94 is really a nightmare! Gravel and mountain.. with a 2wd is a little bit dangerous (and we were there in September, with no rain or snow!)
눇Nice bed, very comfortable and staff really kind; Borgafjordur is also a nice place to visit
13 September 2015
눉No hot tubs like the other place in town
눇Great wifi, clean, comfortable bed, good breakfast. What more could you ask for? Only place in town for rooms with private bathrooms.
6 September 2015
눉Nothing except for the winding, unpaved mountain road that you have to take to get to Borgarfjörður Eystri.
눇Very friendly staff. There is food, but it's not a full restaurant. There is just one guy who runs the place, and he cooks dinner for all the guests by himself. But he was very accommodating when we said we didn't eat something and everything that he made was delicious. The breakfast was also a nice variety, better than what you'd find at typical hotels in Iceland.
25 August 2015
눉Only the weather (but it's likely to change as it always does in Iceland).
눇Location. Friendliness of staff/manager/owner. Best breakfast I've had in Iceland.
14 August 2015
눉Dinner had a set menu and there wasn't room to seat us had we wanted to eat.
눇The town was great and a fun adventure to access on a foggy day. Great for puffin viewing from the shore and hiking access. The room was spare, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast at the restaurant was decent.
24 July 2015
눉The menu was a set menu for dinner so we had to eat elsewhere. The location was beautiful but a little far on the outside of town so better signs would have helped getting there.
눇The property was charming and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful with recommendations of things to do and places to see. The house and room were great, very spacious and comfortable. The wifi didn't work fantastically from my bed but I assume it was because we were at the far end of the hotel in room 17. My sister sat by the door and it was no problem for her. We would definitely go back, especially if the weather had cooperated!
29 June 2015
눇The hotel was in excellent condition (like new). The room had its own private bathroom. The beds were very comfortable with fine linens. The staff was very friendly
23 June 2015
눇The location is really nice. The room had great montain and sea views. The hotel is new and it has great conditions. For the Icelandic stadards it's really good value for the price. The staff is really nice and helpful.
