Mid week business stay, room fantastic, very well done and led to a great quality sleep. Ate in the bar again good. Breakfast in the morning was simply superb, fruit, yoghurt, lovely and very friendly service.

It is not often you go back to a hotel and they remember your name far less what your job is, your favourite shows etc. However at the Albert Hotel they do. I was given my favourite room as they remembered I work funny hours and preferred to be quiet. The beds are super comfy, the room large and spacious... More

Spent one night here on a recent business trip. Lovely modern bedroom - well equipped and spotlessly clean. Friendly staff, good food and service. Only downside us that there is no parking - which might be an issue if you have a lot of luggage or are less mobile.

A friendly warm welcome from the ladies behind the bar, delicious food, and apparently lovely toilets(didn't go myself!) Try the chicken curry, delicious! Lots of pubs in Kirkwall don't let under 18's in so The Albert was a great find.

Great showers, great towels, comfortable beds and excellently serviced . The family restaurant was great, lovely food and helpful and reliable service.close to the harbour , shops and town centre.

We were on the second floor where there were gable windows and although the room was a generous size, had to watch out as I got out of bed or I would have hit my head on the gable. Otherwise it was a pleasant, quiet room with a comfortable bed ( though a bit soft for us) and a nice... More

I have stayed in Kirkwall quite a bit during the past few years. I wish I had found the Albert hotel earlier. Clean tidy great staff and easy to find and park. Will be back again and again. Breakfast good too hot and tasty.

A completely unacceptable reservation at the Commodore Chalets in Holm [housekeeping units, isolated--7 miles from Kirkwall, cold] by CheapOstay was rectified by the helpful tourist office in Kirkwall to the Albert Hotel. They were welcoming, warm, clean, breakfast [with a packed breakfast for an early departure], a pleasant bar/eatery and a central location for a person without a car.
