    Good for families
    South Rock apartment was a good place for family. Up some stairs and a ramp from the car park though. Coffee in the guesthouse in the morning was good too. Nice views

    The host Hafpor is super friendly, hotel is very clean and cozy, a nice breakfast buffet is available, but requires placing an order a day prior. The town is just lovely and the view around this hotel is breathtaking. Restaurant next door is so convenient and very delicious.

    Am worried about the steep staircase. Coffee cups were about the size from a little girls tea-set. Hotel sign could be bolder.

    Extremely good value, nice view, comfortable stay
    The team at Egils is very supportive and sent several emails before arrival, which helped with my self check in very much. The room is big and clean, very close to the sea and view is very nice! The toilet is almost as big as the bedroom! And it’s the first guesthouse I came cross that provided slippers and bath robes! Heating is strong, but water might be not hot enough when everyone is showering - the only downside. Overall it’s great great value! The staff are extremely nice and helpful!

    Iceland is amazing and so is this place!
    Our stay was amazing and their guide book in the lobby helped us get the most out of our two days exploring the area.

    Great guesthouse
    Great Stay in a guesthouse linked to a nice cafe. Highly recommended. If travelling in a larger group, consider booking to get the two room cabin with kitchen and living area.

    Cozy and Charming Guesthouse
    We had a pleasant stay at Egils Kaupangur. The town of Borganes leaves much to desire, especially after having spent a week all over Iceland, but the guesthouse is quite charming. The room was clean, albeit a bit small, and the shower was excellent. I would stay here again because it felt very cozy.

    Really cute little place with a nice cafe on the lower level. Good restaurant right across the street. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area.

    Cozy, Historic and Sparkly Clean Home
    Beautiful and historic home. The room was small, but so lovely and clean. It was easy to find with the help of our host. They were always easy to reach and left very clear instructions for us to check in after hours. We went in the early spring so their breakfast option was not available, but if you go from mid-May to the end of summer, it looks like they provide wonderful food in really pretty ambiance.
