While on a tour we stopped at the guesthouse for coffee. We ate a delicious crepe/pancake with rhubarb jam and cream. The dining room was rustic and pleasant. Nice little village and great views. A good place to stay for a few days of hiking.

Clean. We stayed in the annex with private bathroom. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. We took the offer to have dinner there in the evening. The food is OK, but nothing to write about. To my knowledge it is the only place to have dinner in the village. It is the location you want. The small village is amazing. We saw... More

Gjogv is a truly idyllic little town right by the sea on a stunning piece of coastline. There are a number of beautiful hikes that can be taken with the town as the starting place.The guesthouse resembles a Swiss chalet and the public areas are quite atmospheric. The owner is very professional and friendly. Apparently the rooms in the annex... More

We stayed in the annex, and everything in the room looked quite new. The room was big with lots of space for the 3 beds. It was very clean and the beds very comfortable. The dinner was tasteful. The food of the day was lamb, but since I don't eat meat they prepared a special fish dish for me. My... More

We arrived on bikes over the hill behind the village. The location is stunning. The hotel is warm and comfortable with staff who really do try to help and make your visit a great one.. The rooms are basic but finished beautifully in wood. If you are visiting this remote location you are looking for something very different from a... More

For anyone who likes remote, beautiful and pacific locations thhs would be hard to beat. Snipe dumming overhead, a redshank nesting just outside the room, arctic skuas harassing arctic terns visible from the dining room, merlin swooping on unseen prey on drive to the village. It's just minutes walk from the sea and cliff-top walk. Rooms quiet and comfortable. Staff... More

This guesthouse is located in an extremely picturesque location at the end of a winding mountain road that opens up onto the sea. It is the only accommodation in this area of the islands, and there appear to be groups that come here, so book in advance (there were no rooms available 3 out of 4 nights I was considering... More

Beautiful sceneries around the area. The Guesthouse is very well maintained, staff is very friendly. We also had a meal in the evening as we arrived quite late and didn't have the chance to eat anywhere else beforehand. Very generous portions and good quality of food. Rooms are small, but it didn't really matter as you rarely spend time indoors... More
