I stayed here 6 years ago and the hotel, service and food were all excellent. I just returned for another visit and the hotel and service are still excellent, but the food has degraded a lot. Since there are no other options for food in Gjogv you are stuck. Too bad it has gone downhill. The location is one of... More

We spent two nights in this guesthouse. The staff was pleasant and extremely helpful. They helped us to modify our plans to suit the low clouds that were in the area on the second day of our visit. The guesthouse offers dinner to its guests. There is only one choice but the meals were good and the service was efficient.... More

We stayed three nights at the guest house within the older part. We got a room with a wonderful view across the little village. The two beds were really good, but set apart at each side of the wall. The bath room in the main building is relatively small, and you need to know how to move around. It reminded... More

I stayed two nights at the Gjaargardur Guesthouse located in tiny Gjøgv, one of the most attractive villages I have ever visited in over 50 years of international travel. I arrived too early for check-in but it certainly was worth waiting for my room, probably the very best one in the house with an absolutely superb view of the entire... More

The Guesthouse is quite comfortable, the rooms are very simple but spacious (we were in the new annex), the service was friendly and quite efficient (compared to other places). Also the food that they offered was a very acceptable for the price, they offer one menu, simple but good.

Stayed in the superior-rooms block which is about 30 metres from the main building. The block looks rather unattractive but the rooms themselves are very well fitted out and comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant is excellent and good value. The manager/owner was very pleasant and helpful.

Gjógv is a very picturesque little village at the extreme northern tip of Eysturoy. Whether you approach from Funningur or from Eiði the roads are narrow and winding with spectacular views. The village itself is tiny, and unless you want to go hiking in the area you will probably not want to stay for more than one night. It has... More

When we booked Faroe Islands we did not know anything about it. We booked 2 nights in this guest house. The drive is very beautiful to get here. The house itself is cool looking from the outside, just like the picture, which is why we booked, that plus the reviews. Probably the best part about this place is the staff... More

A modern and classic style full service hotel with a stand alone new wing with wonderful large rooms; double beds and en suite. Modern and comfortable. Lovely management with good service attitude, time to chat and provide advise. A place to experience nature and all the wonders this country can offer. Great for hiking and amazing landscape to explore. Love... More
