4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

We really enjyoed staying at Hotel Føroyar: we loved the location above Tórshavn with beautiful views of the town and the Atlantic Ocean from every room and the restaurant.

The totally quiet room had a modern scandinavian design and was bright and airy. Housekeeping was pretty good, they could have replaced our juice glasses with new ones rather than rinsing them with clear water only, though.

Fast WiFi was available.

Dinner at "KOKS" restaurant was great: world class cuisine, presentation and very good service, let alone the gorgeous views.

Breakfast buffet (included) in the same restaurant was a whole different experience, though: limited items, slow restocking, mostly invisible non-proactive service staff. They really have to adjust here and bring breakfast near the quality level of dinner.

Stayed for three nights, loved the buildings they are really a part of the hills. The rooms have a very nice view out over Thorshavn. The rooms were nice and spacious. The restaurant was extremely interesting, and i am looking forward to be visiting it again.
Only problem was the central heating in the rooms which was out of order.

This is a very nice property, newly renovated with a nice nordic ambiance and great views of Thorshavn and the ocean. The location - perched high above Thorshavn - is great, but you will need a car in order to go anywhere.

Room was cosy, of adequate size and all rooms has excellent view, as they all face the ocean - loved the grassing sheeps outside the window.

We only had breakfast (included) at the restaurant (very good choice of food), but the "setting and ambiance" is probably (also) a great venue for a dinner as well.

We only had one complaint; one day breakfast service crashed completely due to low staffing and a lot of guest arriving suddenly due to some flight cancellations. They had to set up tables in the bar (one level below the restaurant) so you had to wander up and down to get to the buffet. Despite this, frontoffice took "walk in guests" for breakfast........

The head waiter came to our table to apologize for this and it did not ruin our stay and when back in Thorshavn we will stay here again.
