The reception staff were very efficient and pleasant when I was checking-in. One of the ladies even offered to carry my bag to the room - equality exists!!! The bedroom was very tastefully decorated and was well furnished. There was a work area, another small table which could be used under the wall mounted LCD television and a small coffee... More

I stay here for business semi-regularly and find it a very pleasant place to stay. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. The staff will also go above and beyond for you. The only thing that lets the place down is the limited choice for breakfast. Otherwise, a great place to stay!

The exterior spells old. The interior is tastefully decorated to modern standards without being overbearing. My room was clean, airy with a lovely comfy bed, nice surroundings, spacious bathroom and good shower. ... only suffering from varied pulsating water pressure, which given it was a room in the eaves I guess due to a pump ..... can't be helped given...

Very clean, modern and well appointed for the price...only downside was the room we stayed in (206) was very noisy. Slept with the window open and could hear all the 'pub crawlers' at 3am in the morning....when the pub in the hotel seemed to close...particularly unpleasant! Breakfast was very good...waiters just a little unfriendly...reception and check in staff were very... More

Stayed two nights at this hotel. The receptionist and restaurant staff are some of the nicest I have ever encountered. The room was very comfortable--lots of space and a great bathroom. But the best thing about this hotel is the people. They could not do enough for us. We ate in the bar lounge and the food was very good.... More

Must be the best place to stay in Kirkwall - central location, comfort, room facilities. Friendly staff and choose the smoked haddock and poached egg for breakfast. Good beers in the bar. Highly recommended

Stayed here for one night and really appreciated the very large, clean and comfortable room as we had been caught in a storm and couldn't wait to get into a hot shower. The bathroom was great apart from the shower screen not stopping water going onto the floor. We had dinner, which was ok, here followed by a few drinks... More
