We stayed at the Albert Hotel over Easter and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The rooms are clean and modern, lovely decor, mattress a little on the soft side but we all slept very well so still very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice, and the shower had good pressure. Our room had a table and a couple of chairs next... More

Three of us had Sirloin... More

A very costly mistake to boot! Our problems started with an flushed toilet in our room - never a good sign. At least it was a ! and not a 2! Terrible beds - they need new mattresses desperately! Cold rooms and over all VERY shoddy. I can't believe it has so many positive ratings on TA!

I have stayed twice at this hotel and my key consideration in choosing it the first time was to be central to Kirkwall town centre for ease of access to our Client. The website showed enough for me to be happy with what we would be staying in. What I found was an excellent hotel, modern, comfortable and clean, with... More

Although when we arrived they had no record of us having booked ( never book through travel republic) they soon sorted us out a room and were very helpful. The room was well equiped, of a good size and spotlessly clean, (hats off to housekeeping, good job) . We had a meal in the Bothy bar and this was really... More

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.

Very pleasant stay here whilst working in Kirkwall. Quick check in by pleasant lady at reception. It was late so quickly shown guest's way into the Bothy bar attached to hotel. I must say the food in the bar was delicious! Reasonably priced I had a special which was Orkney lamb pie topped with black pudding mmm. Saying what time... More

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...
