On a windswept hill, by an even bigger, even more windswept hill lies this hotel, which is of unusual architecture and appearance. Inside it is very modern and reasonably comfortable. The rooms are large and well furnished, in trendy Scandinavian style, the beds will give you a good nights sleep, and the bathrooms clean and nice. The view, even from... More

Arrived late off the Smyrill Line ferry from Denmark for 3 day stay in Faroes on way to Iceland. Took us a while to navigate by car to the hotel which sits wedged into a hillside overlooking the town and the harbour. Rooms spacious and comfortable, and breakfast was excellent - refreshingly different. We caught a brief glimpse of the... More

This is a nice hotel witha lovely view of the sea and Torshavn. The room was was at lowest level but you don't feel it as it still has a great view. Only problem was that there was no lift for bringing down the suitcase, had to take long stairs. The breakfast is also nice.

Hotel Foroyar in Torshavn is ideally located to explore the enchanting Faroe islands. It is situated at a vantage point offering a wide vista, to enjoy the play of changing light on the sea and the distant mountains. The hotel blends into the landscape and with its turf laden long roofs, it epitomises modern adaptation of an age old architecture.... More

Having not stayed at any other hotels in the Faroes, unlike some other reviewers, I can't really say if this is the best place to stay or not. I found it something of a curate's egg - good in parts. With its turf roof and being half-buried into the hillside it is rather interesting. The room was fine, although it... More

This is the best and indeed the only decent hotel of its kind on the Faroes. It caters for conferences, weddings, hikers and birders. It is in a lovely situation with views over Torshavn - when the skies are clear that is. We were there during a very chilly and foggy period in July and we really appreciated the comfort... More

First visit to Faroe Islands. Situated on a hill overlooking the harbour in Torshavn. It is a 20 min walk downhill to the harbour and a while longer up the steep hill back. Worth it though. Spectacular view. Don't be surprised to see men mowing the grass on the roof. The Café is excellent. The restaurant - Koks - is... More

Wow, Faroe Islands are all nature and beautiful, and this hotel in no exception. Beautiful views of the harbor and capital town below. Comfortable rooms and good accommodations. Free Internet and service with a smile from all staff. My first time to the Faroe Islands and when I return I will be sure to stay here.

My first visit to the Faroe Islands, and a lovely hotel to make it all the more delightful, although, on arrival it was to find that there was no reservation in my name, and I had to spend the first night in a nearby hostel; the equivalent of camping in the grounds of a 4-star hotel! But once in the... More
