We are regular visitors to Orkney for both business and pleasure, also had dined at The Lynnfield with a group of friends a couple of years ago and decided then we would like to stay there sometime....... we weren't disappointed! Malcolm is a very good host with just the right mix of helpfulness and dry humour. Our room was good... More

We stayed here in July and loved our room, which was one of the bigger ones on the second floor and had a gorgeous, huge modern bathroom (with whirlpool tub and separate shower). The main areas are a bit cluttered, but charmingly so, and the frontdesk staff are very helpful and friendly. It's just down from the Highland Park distillery,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our week, excellent hospitality, large comfortable room with great view of Kirkwall and Wideford Hill. Delicious food, funky bar and large comfortable sitting room with lots of chairs arranged for cosy conversation groups.

This place appeared not to have changed much for some time. However, we found it to be a charming, well cared for, comfortable and interesting place to spend a few days. Rooms were spacious with little extras such as a sample of Highland Park on arrival. The Orcadian breakfasts were generous and well presented. Despite the quaint feel, an excellent... More

We stayed three nights in the Tjaldr room which wax excellent, the room was spacious well furnished and the Jacuzzi bath was an added bonus to relax in after hectic days sightseeing. The restaurant was superb with a wide choice menu to suit all tastes including my fussy husband. The whisky collection is second to none. On arrival we welcomed... More

We stayed four nights in the Tjaldr room which was excellent - clean, very spacious and well furnished. I really couldn't fault any aspect of our stay - great food, friendly and helpful staff, good location, huge whisky 'library', wonderful local beers. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly which era the building dates from but it has plenty of character and... More

We were a group of seven adults visiting Orkney for a few days in June 2014. We stayed three nights at the Lynnfield, in three doubles and one single. The rooms were spacious and welcoming, with tea/coffee, biscuits and even some drinks on the house. The ensuite bathrooms were also large and provided an impressive selection of soap etc. The...

We stayed in the ground floor mobility impaired room, and am very glad we did! Lovely sitting room and huge, easily accessible bathroom, comfortable beds. The food was good, breakfast plentiful although the server seemed somewhat distracted on our first breakfast and we never got our coffee. Easy access to the Orkney sites and downtown Kirkwall for a stroll or... More

We only had 2 nights here but we felt very settled from the moment we arrived. We had our 2 dogs with us and they were made to feel as welcome as we were. The room was beautiful and very spacious and the spa bath did not go unused during our short stay. It was very relaxing to sit in... More
