This is now a hostel and I wouldn't stay in it if you paid me to. I turned up to check in at 8.30am as advised through the website. The first thing that hit me as I walked through the door was an awful smell. There was no one around so I ventured upstairs where I was met by someone... More

When I first read the reviews for Eastbank House, I was sceptical. They seem to be one extreme or the other. But, the price was right, and I thought it was close to the ferry terminal (it isn’t, but that was my own misunderstanding about where the ferry comes in, not anything to do with Eastbank House). I decided to... More

On a golfing trip with friends and stayed here for the 2nd year in a row. Great breakfast, clean rooms and staff could not be more friendly. If you like a laugh this is the place for you. Kirkwall is a fantastic town too, we will be back next year.

The reception area was foisty and smelled of... More

We still don't know how we managed to book ourselves into such a horrible place! The room we were given was not the one booked. It was like staying in a squat. We only stayed one night of our four and went elsewhere. The matress was lots smaller than the bed. The bedding was mismatched and the valance was grubby.... More
