We loved the Gjaargardur Guesthouse! After three nights in a mediocre hotel in Torshavn, two nights in Gjogv were just what we needed. We were in A9 - an annex room facing the hill. We checked in, arrived at our room, looked up and saw people on the upper ridge line, and started hiking. One of our favorite hikes in a week in the Faroes. We actually repeated the hike the next day. And we were constantly looking out and watching sheep.
Our room was fine - not fancy, but the beds and shower were good. Could have used more/better pillows, but not a big deal. The staff was excellent - in the front office, in the restaurant, and helping to return a mis-kicked football.
Breakfast isn't exciting but the bread, meats, coffee and jam are good. Lunch options are limited. Dinner isn't a choice - you get whatever they're serving. It's not like there are other restaurants nearby. If I had to rate the restaurant I'd give it three stars (TripAdvisor, not Michelin). But I didn't think it took away from the hotel or the setting. And our first night the fish was excellent.
When we return to the Faroe Islands, this will be the first property I book. A two-night stay was perfect.More
