My son and I have just spent a very cozy, friendly and comfortable off-season night here while enjoying Orkney's wild winter weather, in itself a wonderful experience. The hotel side was excellent: a nice, spacious, and clean room, good modern bathroom with piping hot water, good fast wifi in the room. One could not ask for more! We ate in... More

Stayed at this hotel for business and it exceeded my expectations, warm welcome at reception and fantastic rooms. Got an upgrade to a suite which was very spacious, well decorated and comfortable. Very accommodating as we were waiting on a colleague we had to eat late, but it wasn't a problem. Breakfast was made to order and certainly set me... More

Stayed 2 nights and where warmly welcomed, taken good care of by friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable bed, spacious room. Good food in the bar with a low key atmosphere. Located close to "everything" in the centre of Kirkwall.

I had to travel to Kirkwall for a business trip and my boss had stayed here previously. It is a very small hotel with not many rooms but the rooms were huge as was the bathroom. My colleague had a what seemed like the suite as it had a living room as you entered the room and a separate bedroom.... More

This is as much a review of the dining room of the Albert Hotel in Kirkwall, Orkney, as the hotel itself. The Albert is right downtown Kirkwall and in the middle of lots of stuff like the Magnus Cathedra, fantastic. Great shopping. Butcher shops feature local jams and I bought a traditional Scottish officer's knife for my collection. The room... More

This small hotel situated just off the shore road is truly a find. It's modern inside with beautifully appointed rooms and truly great bathrooms. The food served in the lounge bar is locally sourced and quite delicious. The usual breakfast menu also serves haddock and kippers, again delicious. The hotel is in walking distance of the shopping area and St... More

In the heart of Kirkwall, very close to the shops and very handy for the visitor centre to get ideas and to catch buses. Large room, great wi-fi, reasonable breakfasts and meals, amazing selection of gins! The location was surprisingly quiet given its position in the heart of the town. Stayed four nights and saw quite a variety of staff... More

Although alone I was given a lovely big room with balcony. I was very comfortable and the staff were helpful. Bothy Bar for meals was cosy with a friendly atmosphere. Central to everything in Kirkwall.
