Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉Double bed on the small side in the room we were in, I think the other double room has a normal sized bed though.
눇Amazing views and very friendly hosts, excellent shower, 10 minute walk to the centre of Torshavn.

눉Could provide milk for tea / coffee as long way to nearest shop.
눇Very friendly welcome, flexible facilities, wonderful views of islands from living space.
September 28, 2016
눇Friendly, welcoming host to this guest house well situated a little out of the main town. Excellent facilities to self cater, roomy sitting area with a lovely view across to the island of Nolsoy.
July 12, 2016
눉Nothing - it perfectly suited my needs.
눇Very friendly landlady and landlord, very personal, the landlord also offered fantastic excursions - the best way to experience the spectacular scenery and to learn about history and life through the eyes of a local. Also sea-view from room.

눇More than happy with my stay. I was made welcome by Tora and nothing was too much trouble for her. Being a solo traveller, she assisted me when I needed help. I would recommend a stay in this lovely and very comfortable home.
June 19, 2016
눇This is a great place in which to enjoy home from home comforts. Shops close by so can get supplies for breakfast and have use of private facilities. Fantastic views from sitting/ dining area. Tora the owner treated us like family and was helpful and friendly. Her husband runs a private excursions company so great if you prefer not to drive yourself.

눉To much to love
눇Had a fantastic time at this guesthouse. The owners could not off been nicer. Even getting into a selfie with me. I have no complaints. Also on wednesday on my trip my phone wouldnt work for the rest of the week. The two owners could not of done anymore to help even giving rice to dry my phone, googling similar problems an even wanting to loan me a telephone while they brought me into there personal kitchen gave me coffee an lunch. On top of that i was greeted everytime i entered the guesthouse an asked about my day while given tips ob where to visit in the Faroe Islands. Going away i felt like crying because these two people treated me like family. Leaving was hard but i will never forget my stay in Tora Guesthouse, the owners or the Faroe Islands. I will stay here again in the near future..absolutely fabulous stay

눉I can imagine it could get a little crowded if all the rooms were taken - not a problem in April.
눇Excellent location - a few hundred metres from the Bonus supermarket at the Midlon centre, 10-15 minute walk from the town centre (buses also available), fantastic view of Nolsoy from the dining room window. Good kitchen facilities. Tora was extremely friendly and helpful.

눉Since we were only 4 people staying at the guesthouse at the moment, we had enough cutlery and space in the fridge, but maybe that could be a problem if there is a full house-but I didn't experienced that, it is just an assumption.
눇The owner was really nice and greeted us kindly. The room was comfy and we received bed linens and towels included in a price. There is also a sink in every room; great if there is a lot of people staying at the guesthouse at the same time, using one bathroom. We shared living room and kitchen with a nice couple also staying there at that time. The living room has an AMAZING view over Nolsoy, island located 20min by ferry away from Torshavn. We didn't really stay at the house much, we only came late for dinner and than went off to bed and wake early in the morning to go around, so there was nothing that could really bother us. Regarding location: you can walk 10-15min to the store, main bus/ferry station or city center, so it is good! The owner or her family also owns a touristic agency, which is located downstairs of this house and I am sure they can help you make plans for your vacation. We did not need it, since we had planned everything beforehand. Just to note: owner prefers cash, so have it prepared (we did, so no problems).

눇Torhalda and Samal are really good people, super nice and very helpful. We will definitely come by and say hi if we travel again to færøerne :) Baptiste & Tom

눉The only negative was that the bathroom/toilet smelled like pee a bit (not majorly but a tiny bit) but this was only around the toilet - perhaps some guests with bad aim...?
눇Samal and Torhalda, the owners, were so lovely and helpful! The place was clean, had plenty of room and a kitchen so you can cook your own food (because the Faroes are so expensive!). The beds were so super comfy that I did not have any problem falling/staying asleep on the first night (usually, if I am in a new place, I wake up a bit on the first night as I am not used to the bed)! The place is conveniently located a short distance to the town centre. The place was clean and well kept and there was plenty of communal space. Best value for money in the Faroes I reckon! I would stay there again!

눇Great location with an impressive and beautiful view of Nolsoy (the big island across from Tórshavn) from the common room upstairs. Tora and her husband (the owners) were extremely friendly and welcoming. A great place and highly recommended. (Just notethat the guesthouse prefers payment in cash.)
June 30, 2015
눉This goes for most guesthouses, cafes, restaurants, etc. in the Faroes: a sign or an arrow pointing to the right door would help tourists find their way.
눇The location: it takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the bus terminal/ferry/city centre. You can either walk down the busy road or climb down to the strand and go by the seafront and fort. When the fog lifts, the view on Nolsoy from the lounge picture window is amazing. Beds are very comfortable and small kitchen well equipped. A large dining table allows guests to sit together and socialise. Tórharda was very helpful.

눉no room servicew, no breakfast, no cleaning the rooms not change nothing.....to expensive for that money....
눇Really I would like to inform to any one that the house is old abd its solution only for persons who the din;t interesting some comforts....

눉Separate rooms are rather small, with just two beds, one chair, small table in the corner and double wardrobe. Some (not all) of the rooms even have water faucet and sink. Wooden walls are not noise-insulated, consequently one hears everything. Fortunately, all our co-guests were nice and calm.
눇Common kitchen area is well organized and has all the equipment needed. Common area is large and comfortable. Easy parking in the front of the property, Bonus supermarket very near (in Midlon shopping complex); main (and only) post office just opposite the shop. Wonderful view down to the sea and the Nolsoy Island behind. 10-15 min walk brings one to the town centre, down at the harbour. 5 min walk away nice lagoon/lake (Hoyviktjorn where one can rest and observe the birds). The hosts are nearly always at home, so if one needs anything it is easy to contact them (Mr. Samal speaks English very well). Comfortable bathroom, never runs out of hot water. With a car, in 5 min you are out of the town in the typical island nature.

눉no breakfast, but then I'd brought my own stuff with me so wasn't a problem.

눇Close to city bus route

눉Had to pay cash for stay - as expected to pay with card - meaning I had to withdraw money. Internet was very patchy - better midday and only in a spot in the shared living space. Not brilliant having to share bathroom with up to eight people.
눇Samal and Torhada very friendly and spoke very good English and always very helpful.
June 19, 2014
눉There was no table/desk in the room.
눇The house is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, there was absolutely no traffic noise. The host, Tórharda, is very friendly and always ready to help. There is a large common area with a little kitchen and a living room with a great view.

눉I don't find wi-fi except shared computer at the first floor. But I didn't ask. May be it was. I had only two days in Torshavn - and therefore wanted to see more. And without wi-fi in the room it's easier to do it! )) ---- Я не нашёл вай-фай кроме как на компе снизу. Но может я просто плохо искал. И я не спрашивал хозяев. Я до этого был в Копенгагене и наличие вай-фая в номере сильно мешало осматривать город. А тут у меня было только два дня - поэтому я решил: может лучше без вай-фая.
눇It was very good nights Value for money. At the Faroe Islands Hotels are expensive. Too expensive. And therefore we booked this one with shared bathroom. I'm very happy that had this variant for just a little price. It was very good to have tea and coffee at the morning and colours of beds)) and if you want to discuss with true real faroese - it's for you ))) ----- Отели на Фарерах реально очень-очень дорогие. Они вообще дорогие в Скандинавии. Но в остальных странах мне удавалось найти номера с одельной ванной за эти деньги. Здесь - нет. Но я очень рад, что удалось взять этот вариант. Он не далеко от центра. И реально дешевле в разы основных гостиниц. Отличное соотношение качество/деньги. Безусловно, скандинавская простота. Но вы сможете пообщаться с реальными фарерцами, сдающими вам под номера второй этаж своего дома. Сможете выпить бесплатного чая и коффе с утра на дорожку... или вечером.
