4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I was accommodated here for one night by Atlantic Airways due to a flight cancellation. The room was clean and comfortable with a good view over Torshavn. The bed was very comfortable. I had the dinner buffet which was of a high standard, although the desserts were a bit of a let down. Annoyingly we were set to leave the... More

Our trip to the Faroe Islands was extremely pleasant, everyone on the island we interacted with were more than helpful, they would even stop their cars when we parked at along the curb, offering to assist us in case we needed any help. The best service came from the Hotel Foroyar, especially from a member of the staff, Maria. She... More

The hotel sits on the top of a hill overlooking the town and the harbor. It is, however, 3 km or so from town. The views are spectacular. The room and the beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom had a real tub with a real shower. After traveling in Iceland, I very much appreciated that. The restaurant was sort... More

Indeed the views are fab and the closeness to nature wonderful but if we are talking serious hotels this is a bit of a joke, sadly. The dining room at breakfast is a classic example of staff laissez faire. No one greets you, few smile and you have to guess the system. Staff are slow to clear tables but quick... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to review Hotel Føroyar and for sharing your experience with other Tripadvisor readers. The service personal at a hotel is a important representation of the hotel, therefore I am sorry to hear that our personal at the breakfast did not live up to our standards. When you visited us in...

The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were soft and cozy. Fantastic view of the town and harbor below. Breakfast was great and in the dining room overlooking the water. The staff was friendly and helped us plan the perfect hike to the lighthouse on Nolsoy.

Hotel is a good walk from the village, maybe about 2-3 km. Certainly doable though. Views down to the city and coast are nice when the fog hasn't rolled in. We did walk from here to the start of our hike to Kirkjubor which added a couple of kilometers, but far easier than driving there and trying to find a... More

This hotel is a little pricey but everything is in the Faroe islands. The view and upgrade to a larger room were worth it for us, however. It is about a 25 minute walk to Tórshavn, but that didn't bother us at all and it was nice to have a bit of a walk after large dinners. The hotel is... More

The hotel is warm and very comfortable, and the breakfast was reasonable. For the high price, however, the hotel does not compare with similar standards across Europe, and with there being little competition in the area I suspect that there is no incentive for change. Once leaving the reception area, there is very little attention to detail: the hallway carpets... More

It was our first visit to Färöer Islands. We had picked this place because it was abit of the city of Torshavn. Actually it is best to have a rental car. It was a bit dificult to get there even though it can be seen from below However, the walk downtown is only 20 minutes - up a bit longer.... More

I was somewhat disappointed in this hotel. The room was OK and pretty quiet. The property is well worn but does offer a place to sit besides your room. The soap and shampoo were pretty bad but appropriate for a two star hotel. The breakfast was not very good, over done eggs and not many options. They advertise that you... More
