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

Firstly on first floor and next on the second floor. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Kirkwall. A great breakfast and a topping bar with... More

Listed in my copy of the 2013 Good Hotel Guide, vegetarian friendly & with a great bar the centrally located Albert Hotel ticked all our boxes and then some. From the initial enquiry right through to arrival we were treated as valued guests and were well taken care of throughout our stay. Our room was beautifully furnished, the bed exceptionally... More

This review is for the pub restaurant as we didn't stay at the Albert Hotel. We had a fantastic three-course evening meal which was well cooked, beautifully served and tasted great. The waitress - who also ran the bar, directed lost people, took orders, cleared tables and chatted to everyone - is a real asset to the place ... Wonderful... More
