Lovely, atmospheric hotel with attentive staff. After a busy day of awesome touring in blustery weather, it was beyond fabulous to ensconce ourselves in this little gem. We also had a delicious dinner there that would compare favorably to a wonderful dinner at a very good restaurant in a major city. The hotel is a bit removed from Kirkwall city... More

My wife and i stayed here for 2 nights in May 2015 as part of a 2 week tour primarily in N and W Scotland. Arrived late in evening off of the ferry from Aberdeen and we were warmly welcomed. Our room was large and comfortably furnished. The restaurant is renowned in Orkney and our meal there was good featuring... More

A four day stay just out of Kirkwall centre but great location for sightseeing. Rooms are superb with Tammie Norrie our favourite. Excellent selection of malts and other drinks. Breakfast was well cooked, the poached eggs perfect every time. Eat in the restaurant one night, the food was top class but would have liked to see a 'bar' menu for... More

I loved the old-fashioned and personal touches - shortbread with the in-room coffee, assortment of books on the desk. The owner accompanied us to our room, helped with the suitcases (note: no elevator, luckily only a two storey building), then stayed to show us how the TV worked. The included breakfast was delicious (Scottish porridge with a splash of Highland... More

We came to Orkney on a whim and without a hotel reservation. We found the Lynnfield Hotel right beside the Highland Park distillery and asked if we could get a room for two nights. As it is early in the season, this was not a problem. We had a very large twin room overlooking the town (The front view is... More

This is a very nice hotel with an excellent host (Malcomb) and restaurant. The rooms are well furnished and normal size for a nice hotel. The lounge / bar areas are very good and very well furnished with Scotch etc. The staff is competent and well managed. Malcomb is welcoming and informative. Pros: plenty of rooms, good parking, well functioning... More

the Lynnfield is a 4Star hotel in the St Orla area of Kirkwall. Parts of the house were built in the late 18th century although this is not immediately apparent and was originally the 2nd manse for St Magnus Cathederal. The couple who own the hotel are delightful, very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble from any of... More

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.
