My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, as we were finishing up our 10 days in the Faroe Islands. We primary stayed here, since we were dining at Koks. For those wanting to dine there, please make reservations months in advance. It was great! The room was clean, modern and had an amazing view of Torshavn. There was... More

We were in winter so was so cold outside. But the hotel was warm and the rooms also. Rooms are large and clean. Nordic Breakfast. Was a very nice experience.its a little far from the center so better rent a car. Also there is buses.

Located up in the hills with the best overview you can have. The facilities are modern and the staff very friendly. The breakfast is great. It is modern decorated with a nice lobby and bar. The restaurant is famous for the good food.

The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They organized taxis, day trips with an excellent company and other requests. The views out the room were amazing. The breakfast was excellent. This is where my compliments stop. Unless you eat at the special restaurant upstairs the choices are limited for dinner. In fact just a couple of choices. We... More

All rooms are large and have a excelent view over Thorshavn and Nolsoy. One of the days we had a were nice dinner - saltfish in a pot with a local beer from a micro brewery Okkara. Breakfast is international with a local touch. Really a nice stay:-)

Relaxed, 15-20 min walk out of town, good rooms. Nice breakfast, good top notch culinary restaurant. If you want or have to be in town, it's better to stay there, if you want a great hotel to unwind, this is all very comfortable. If they would add a pool etc it would be perfect.

This hotel is really outside Torshavn, situated on hillside above it with beautiful views over the city. The room was large, clean and warm. Breakfast was plentiful and a decent selection, if unchanging. The breakfast staff are too keen to clear away your plate while you are still finishing off, and not keen enough to restock food or drink items... More

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel as part of a knitting holiday. The hotel has a beautiful location set on the hill above the town with views over the town, fjord and to the islands. A taxi cost £9 one way to town. There is a small bar area in the foyer which was poorly designed. The bar service... More

Amazing hotel. Very nice reception/lounge area and lobby bar. The rooms are spacious with modern furniture and nice colours. The view to Torshavn is amazing. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the city centre - but I can assure you it is worth the walk when you can stay in this beautiful hotel. Nice and helpful staff. Conference... More

This hotel is located in the outskirts of Torshavn but it is great. Every room has a great view of the bay and the capital of the Faroe Islands. The rooms are very spacious, the beds are really good and you can feel that the mattresses are the good quality. All rooms have a bathtub, a mini bar and a... More
