on returning to Orkeny a catch up girls evening out for dinner 8th April. The 3 courses were beautiful. The steak and the lamb ( North ronaldsay) were lovely. The puddings were also to die for. Service was also great...attentive but not intrusive.

Another excellent trip up to the superb Orkney isles and the best hotel there. The food is amazing, the staff cannot be more helpful and it feels like home from home. The rooms are always immaculate and have everything you need. All my family enjoyed every minute of our two night stay and will keep looking forward to the next... More

Can't recomnend this hotel highly enough. We visited with our pup Maggie and were warmly welcomed from the start to finish of our stay. Fabulous room with sitting room and views over the bay at Kirwall, great food and outstanding service all delivered in beautiful surroundings. The hotel states that it is dog friendly and surpassed itself in this regard... More

Myself and my friends arrived for an evening of fine dining and complementary wine at £55 per head. We were shown to the lounge without offer of a drink. When shown to the dining area we were sat barely five minutes when a waitress spilt an entire tray of glasses full of red wine over my friend. She was offered... More

Malcolm and his team provide a warm welcome. The lounge with real fire is a lovely place to enjoy a pre dinner drink. The food is locally sourced and of extremely high quality. The wines are excellent. The rooms are spacious and well furnished-mine had a large whirlpool bath. This is a lovely place to stay!

Stayed 2 nights whilst on business. Was given a fantastic spacious room with lovely big bathroom. Stayed for dinner on both nights, food is beautiful and changes daily with fresh local produce. Next to Highland Park distillery with plenty of fine malts in the bar. Comfortable stay, I will be back!

Staying at a hotel out of season is always a bit of a risk because you can't possibly expect the hotel to keep full staff on with only a couple of guests in the hotel. The Lynnfield... More
