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...

As in the other Hotel, comfort and Service have been great. Very cosy lounge and good Food, a nice room with a view to... More

Was taken here for dinner otherwise I would have complained. There was no warm welcome from the staff although the lounge and restaurant atmosphere was good. The food was terrible. Baked figs for starters were bitter. Main course of lamb with Parmesan risotto and wilted spinach was a joke. Two small bits of lamb with nothing like a risotto, just... More

I travel to Orkney regularly and usually at short notice. The Lynnfield is my favourite place to stay in Kirkwall. It's got many regulars and so it's worth making sure you book well in advance if you can. Each bedroom has it's own character and all have clean, modern and well appointed bathrooms.

Located on the outskirts of Kirkwall the Lynnfield offers comfortable accommodation and good food. Bedrooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable with all the expected amenities. Public rooms are a little cluttered with an eclectic mix of furniture and whisky related memorabilia. The restaurant seems to specialise in seafood with a good range of fish dishes plus a couple of... More

Stayed one night in a bit room with a view to the front of the hotel and over Kirkwall. Room had 'ye olde' character about it and lacked for nothing in terms of hotel 'extras'. Bathroom was modern clean, bright and had a powerful fan so there was no danger of it becoming a steam room. Very efficient radiators which... More

We did not choose this hotel; it was booked for us by Wildabout Orkney as part of our six-day tour. They did an excellent job. What a warm and inviting place! Our room was large with lovely wooden furniture. And what a nice touch--two small decanters, one of whisky and one of wine, greeted us in our room. We loved... More

Now becoming a regular here with work. Again staff were superb, food was out of this world, service was second to none. Overall a fabulous place to stay. Recently refurbished bathrooms - very nice! and mixed with the older style bedrooms means I really like this place. Has excellent character. Bar contains more types of whisky than you will ever...

I stayed in this hotel for work and was very pleased. The room was beautiful and felt very home. We enjoyed an excellent dinner - first class food with good service. Im really surprised its ranked 4th as certainly better than some of the one higher up the list.

My wife and I were recommended to go to The Lynnfield by the owner of the guest house where we were staying. When we arrived we were shown into a lounge full of furniture you might expect to find in a rather poorly run old people's home. When I entered I thought I must have grown an extra head as... More
