Kria Cottages review
Stayed 13 and 14apr 2017
2 bedroom cottage
Everything about Kria Cottages was fabulous. Facing the river separated by the highway, yet quiet and just off the main road. The view was beautiful. It is not difficult to locate the property even tho it was our first time in Iceland and we drove straight from the airport to this accommodation. However internet is spotty. Thankfully we had purchased a Vodafone card at a gasoline station before arrival. Margret the owner, like every Icelander we met, is such a nice person. She runs another hotel in Borganes across the river but came over with maps which we requested and gave us great recommendations. We are frequent travelers and can vouch that her cottage was tastefully furnished, clean, had good water pressure, a great kitchen with proper utensils if you plan on cooking. The mattress was nice and firm. We stayed 2 nights and wanted to extend but understandably her cottages were fully booked. If we ever visit West Iceland again, this would be the place we will want to stay again.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled as a couple

My girlfriend and I, along with two of our friends, spent a lovely weekend in these cosy, recently refurbished cottages. Of the two cottages we rented (there are three cottages in all – the largest one housed other guests), we used the smaller one only for sleeping, while employing the larger of the two as a common room. The small cottage is quite tiny, but makes a great use of the limited space, with comfortable accommodations for at least 3 people, a bathroom and the tiniest kitchen (yet equipped with a fridge, microwave and kettle). The other cottage is more spacious; with a nice living room/dining room, a well equipped kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Both cottages are clearly recently renovated, but in classic, cosy style, which nicely fits the countryside atmosphere. Everything was clean and in good condition, and the service excellent on the hosts’ part. The dining room window offers view over the Borgarfjordur countryside and the rolling Hvita river, while from the back windows you look up at an imposing mountainside. Whether you just want a nice place to hang and drink a few cocktails in good company (which was the case for us!) or want to find a place from where you can stage trips to the sights to see in Borgarfjordur (I personally recommend Reykholt – home of Snorri Sturluson, and Grabrok crater – an extinct volcano which you can climb), I can safely recommend Kria Cottages.
