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 of the hotel after our days our walking. Sleeping on the beds was like floating on a cloud. The food is excellent though very expensive for us from the UK. Breakfasts were amazing with a huge choice on offer. My only slight criticism is that the hotel is somewhat impersonal. We stayed for 5 days whereas most people seem only to stay for 1 or 2 nights and we never got to know any of the staff as there is constant change of shifts. Pity there isn't a swimming pool.

Room Tip: All rooms have views out on to grassland and the town below. All rooms are pretty quiet as they are away from the restaurant and bar area.

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 spectacular "New Scandinavian" cuisine. Best booked in advance. Good comfortable rooms, friendly staff.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views over the harbour - when weather allows.

Stayed at the Foroyar hotel during a conference in june 2013. The hotel is situated on a hill above the City, with spectacular views of the City and the fjords and the Atlantic ocean. The staff are very serviceminded and very helpfull upon any request that we had. The rooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms nice and working fine. The restaurant is offering yet annoter spectacular view of the City and the sea, though the menu does not have that much to choose from, but the dishes the offer are quite delicious.
The only disadvantage of the hotel is that it isn't situated in the down town area, so you have to do a bit of a down hill walking on your way to the harbour area, and you have to 'climb' the hill on your way back, but the exercise is good, and if you are in the lazy mood, you can take a Cab on the way back.
And the Faroe Islands ?, beside the often poor weather and the following closedown of the airport, there is only good things to say, green valleys, mountains, sheep, spectacular views and nice and friendly people.

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 hotel, it was excellent; the staff friendly and helpful, and once you get over the sight of a gardener mowing the lawn on the roof of the hotel, you soon settle into the Faroese way of things. Rooms are generously sized, and the bathrooms are excellent. Free WiFi throughout the hotel, as well as (one) computer in the lobby.

Eating-wise there are two possibilities. One is to try the upstairs gourmet restaurant, KOKS, which doesn't seem to have a Michelin star, but it's trying hard. Excellent cuisine, and a superb selection of wines, but, oddly perhaps, only set menus of four, six of eight courses, with lots of amuse bouches thrown in. Very pricey, but worth it. However, just keep an eye on what you're paying for...there is a tendency to include a different wine with each course, which is great, but that's going to rack up the cost by 100%, at least. So, if you don't want to do that, say so at the outset. After dinner you may be tempted by a truly refined selection of cognacs, armagnac, calvados, marc du Bourgone, whiskies, etc. Tempting, but understandably pricey - the outstanding Chateau de Beaulon cognac (arguably the finest in the world) is something you could drink all night, although, unless you're very wealthy, I don't recommend it.

Much less formal, is GRAS, a cafe and bar in the hotel lobby that seems to be open from around 11.30am until well into the evening. Now here, you can get a delicious steak and chips for Dkk185, or braised lamb for a bit less. But the menu choice is very limited. However, if you're staying only a few days, does that matter?

You won't find a better base, but, if you're driving from the airport, take the old road, not the new road on the approach to Torshavn, otherwise you'll get lost. If you do get lost, try to head for the Nordic House, go past this and through a roundabout until you come to a car sales garage on the right. Turn right here, then almost immediately left, and you're on the way to the hotel, just a short way farther on.

Room Tip: Try to get one that faces out over Torshavn. Actually, I think they all do...so...enjoy.
