First stay here. Came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. Contemporary decor on the inside. Nice double room with plenty wardrobe space and a decent/very powerful shower. Breakfasts were excellent; especially the Porridge. Ate once there for dinner. Orkney fish cakes were good but the Turbot excellent. Staff extremely friendly and very helpful.

Stayed here for two nights in October. The room was very spacious with a loveseat, chair and coffee table as well as a small round dining table and two chairs. The bed was a king size, the room was clean and modern with free wifi. Good breakfast and friendly staff.

I have stayed here several times with work over the last 5 years and I have always enjoyed my stay. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable and there is a good choice of food available which is very good. The hotel is a bit of a maze but don't let that put you off. On one occasion I was...

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
