Visit the hotel 2 times, and noticed after my last trip that the hotel had drawn from my private credit card account extra money without my acceptance. On my first trip I used my private credit card to pay for some meal in the restaurant and the company card for the room, second time and did not use my private... More

We spent 4 nights at the Hotel Foroyar, and very much enjoyed it, using it as a base to explore many of the islands. It is up the hill above the city of Torshavn, and features a wonderful view of downtown and the ever-changing weather/sky, cozy rooms, clean, comfortable, fantastic breakfast (salmon especially) and views from the breakfast room, and...

This is a nice hotel, located away from the centre of Torshavn but only a 5 minute drive therefrom. I stayed for four nights, using it as a base to explore the islands. Service was fine, if a little Faroese-brusque, and the rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable.

We are just back home from our trip in Faroe and I'm sad to say that if it hasnt been for the hotel, this trip would be probably one of my best trip I've ever done (have been travelling quite a lot so far). Positives: hotel is clean, and has nice views over the bay Negatives: 1) Service: on our... More

Returned here with my wife after really enjoying a stay on business a year ago. What a let down. When we arrived we were told they had no double rooms for us (we had to make do with two single beds pushed together) - even though I'd booked and paid for the room 9 months earlier. Despite complaining on arrival... More

For Faroer standard quite a good breakfast (fresh omelette, some danish pastries, smoothies). The view over the bay of Torshavn is stunning, all rooms face the sea. The Koks restaurant in the hotel is excellent and even pricey definitely worth to go. The bar has real good coffee (compared to other filter coffee you usually get in Faroer). On the... More

We stayed 3 night at Hotel Foroyar, and had a good time. The hotel is very clean, well kept, staff is very friendly. I did experience some frustration on 3 counts: 1- yes it gets a little annoying to be asked to give your card for "deposits", 1000 DKK upon arrival (even though the room is already paid for), 600...

Nothing really to criticise: breakfast good, rooms comfortable, bar a bit dull. The place is just too far out of town and as Torshavn is the only place worth visiting on the whole archipelago this is a shame. Also worth noting that the bar has a very limited menu but the restaurant was very popular and must be booked in... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and enjoyed my stay very much. My room was clean and spacious. The view was over Tórshavn, and except for some people walking on a path some hundred meters away, you have total privacy. Only some of the local birds do get near to your window :) I was part of a... More
