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 was quite a long walk from reception to get there. The bar area was nice (the Rinku Steinur was definitely the best of the three draft beers on offer) and it did decent bar food. Staff were friendly and helpful, especially the bar staff. The hotel's location above the town does give it good views (weather permitting), but it also means you really need to go by car or taxi if you want to go into town, e.g. for an evening meal. If you walked, it would be a long uphill march on the way back. The hotel caters to tour groups - perhaps because of its size: the rather mediocre breakfast was served in the restaurant, which looked and felt like a factory canteen. I think a section is perhaps curtained off in the evening but the decor was without any charm. One thing the hotel really lacks is any sort of spa facility or sauna, which would be very welcome after a day outside in sometimes 'challenging' weather. Just a couple of minutes walk away from the hotel are the Berg Hestar stables, where it is possible to go riding. Note: the signposts to the hotel are so small as to be almost invisible: the turnoff on the sort of ring road is next to a large cream coloured building selling cars, then head left up the hill.
