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

This is a very special hotel and is owner run. our four-poster bedded room had an ample sitting area and A Wee Dram plus Sherry provided an added 'complimentary' welcome. The food is exceptional and the whole experience provided a great start to our holiday.

Lynnfield Hotel is a very charming and welcoming place on the outskirts of Kirkwall. We stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time. The owner and host, Mr. Stout, was outstanding and helped us in every way. Both the hotel and the restaurant are rather pricey, but the standard is very high. One small negative point: Not all...

Popped in for lunch, lovely food. Had carrot and coriander soup which was lovely followed by haddock, salad, chips and homemade tartare sauce which couldn't be faulted. Coffee with delicious shortbread to follow. My 3rd visit and never fails to impress me.

The hotel was chosen by the tour operator who arranged our trip, but it turned out to be just what we wanted and it exceeded our expectations. We had a room on the ground floor which was obviously fitted out for disabled travellers. It had a bathroom as big as the bedroom and we had a sitting room as well.... More

We booked a suite on an offer which included dinner. Our room was absolutely lovely, the bathroom was beautiful and the lounge enjoyed views over Kirkwall. A childs bed and travel cot were kindly provided and our own bed was enormous. Our little ones and ourselves were welcomed in the restaurant and a highchair was provided. The food was absolutely...
