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

There are very few flights from Britain to Faroe and they are only in July and August. We booked this hotel because it was the only one with spare rooms (or more precisely a spare room), after I had booked the non-refundable flight. So it was a bit "Hobson's choice". The design of the hotel is consciously quirky, but we... More

We stayed here 7 nights and it was a good experience. Breakfast was nice with a lot of choices. Room comfortable with a great view. The hotel is a 25 min walk from town. There is a bus during weekdays every 20 minutes, but to reach the busstop you have to walk a small path downhill. (And when you go... More

Imagine a Bond Villain's lair furnished by Ikea and you would come up with a close approximation of this hotel. Set into the hillside and with a grass roof the hotel has a very low profile but this means all the rooms have a great view down the hill to the bay of Torshavn. The room are very comfortable with...

When I arrived at the Hotel Foroyar and tried to check in, I was told that check-in wasn't until 90 minutes later. "But if you pay 300 kr extra, you can get into your room now," the receptionist informed me. Not "Your room isn't ready yet" (which would have been perfectly fine), but "We're using this rule to get more... More
