An nice hotel with a nice view, very good breakfast, friendly and helpfull staff. The room is correct and the cleaning as it should be. But i must say it was not what we expected from a 4 star hotel. The location is really good if you have a car, it is far off when you don't.

Stayed here for a night waiting for the ferry from Denmark to continue to Iceland. Clean and comfortable, but no frills considering the cost...everything is dear in the Faeroes, restaurant is nice but with a limited fare.

We stayed at this hotel when visiting Torshavn with a group of 50 colleagues. The hotel is quite, clean and simple. All you need for a weekend at this exciting Island. The breakfast is also simple, nothing spectacular but all you need to start the day. The location of Hotel Føroyar is also good- approximately 30 min walk from Torshavn,... More

Good hotel in great location, friendly staff and easy for Torshavn and it's restaurants. Perfect for those on a walking holiday. 45 minute taxi transfer from airport. The Faroes are an unspoilt part of the world and its people always greet you with a smile.

I was accommodated here for one night by Atlantic Airways due to a flight cancellation. The room was clean and comfortable with a good view over Torshavn. The bed was very comfortable. I had the dinner buffet which was of a high standard, although the desserts were a bit of a let down. Annoyingly we were set to leave the... More

Our trip to the Faroe Islands was extremely pleasant, everyone on the island we interacted with were more than helpful, they would even stop their cars when we parked at along the curb, offering to assist us in case we needed any help. The best service came from the Hotel Foroyar, especially from a member of the staff, Maria. She... More

The hotel sits on the top of a hill overlooking the town and the harbor. It is, however, 3 km or so from town. The views are spectacular. The room and the beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom had a real tub with a real shower. After traveling in Iceland, I very much appreciated that. The restaurant was sort... More

Indeed the views are fab and the closeness to nature wonderful but if we are talking serious hotels this is a bit of a joke, sadly. The dining room at breakfast is a classic example of staff laissez faire. No one greets you, few smile and you have to guess the system. Staff are slow to clear tables but quick... More

The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were soft and cozy. Fantastic view of the town and harbor below. Breakfast was great and in the dining room overlooking the water. The staff was friendly and helped us plan the perfect hike to the lighthouse on Nolsoy.
