About Havgrím Seaside Hotel 1948

Built in 1948, just three years after the end of the Second World War, it was a house like none other in the Faroe Islands.

Havgrímur Johannesen from Tórshavn built the house. It was designed by Eyðálvur á Heygum to Havgrím’s specifications, taking inspiration from his many sailing trips to Great Britain. The house was to have a stately entrance, conservatory with steps leading down to the garden, a study and servant’s rooms. In 1952 the house was sold to the Danish State.

No less than 21 Danish Commodores and their families have made the house their home. Hanging in the reception is a list of the names of all the dignitaries who have lived there.

The last Commodore left in 2013 and an agreement was made with the Danish State, that the Faroese Government would take over responsibility for the house. However in 2016 the Government decided to sell the house.

06.06.2017 Ltd. purchased the property on the 1st of February 2017
