The room was large and well appointed with a nice mixture of comfort and charm. The usual items found in good hotels were present and the bathroom was luxurious. It was good to see that local people who were not guests were using the restaurant. The food was good with a reasonable variety of dishes. Breakfast was excellent. We did... More

The room was spacious. The bathroom enormous with a jacuzzi. However the bed creaked and there was trash in the common areas that was not picked up over two days. Also, it was irritating to not be given ice so you were obligated to buy all your alcohol from the bar or incur a "corkage fee". We stayed three days... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of a prearranged holiday. We had a very good ground floor suite with separate sitting room and enormous bathroom. The twin beds were large and very comfortable. The bed linen and towels were clean and new looking and the duvets feather or down. The view over Kirkwall from the sitting room and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, 4-9th September. We stayed in the Tammie Norrie room, very spacious and comfortable. It's at the front of the hotel with lovely views to Kirkwall. Jacuzzi bath which was a bonus as a hot, deep, soothing bath after a days sightseeing and diving is just perfect. The hotel is about 30 minutes walk from... More

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
