Stayed at the Lynnfield twice in the last two weeks and both stays have been fantastic. The hotel is small with only 10 rooms however the rooms are fantastic. My room had it's own living room with Sky TV and lovely views over Kirkwall, a large bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and separate shower and a large bedroom with a very... More

This area is amazing, great scenery & attractions nearby. It's a small town, not a lot of choices in accommodation. This was a very nice facility- a bit farther from the center of town than I would have liked- not much to walk to. Great dining room and good food, regrettably looking out at the parking lot. Having said that,... More

Having just returned from a most enjoyable and informative weekend I feel it only right that I commend The Lynnfield Hotel on the quality of accommodation, food and welcome. Especially to our Golden Retreiver who was made most welcome. Situated on the outskirts of Kirkwall, next Highland Park Distillery, we enjoyed excellent food and accommodation. The proprietor was welcoming and... More

A charming private hotel that in places borders on feeling like a museum and antique shop. It is overflowing with character and abundant in its offerings of literally hundreds of whiskies. Antique feeling and personalised rooms but with modern bathrooms makes for a good combination. Food was excellent and of course local in cuisine.

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights while on a hiking trip to the Orkney Islands. I loved the hotel. The food was very good. Single malt scotch bottles were spread around the library. There were more than 250 bottles. It was great fun to sample different brands. The hotel is a few hundred yards from the Highland Park... More

My wife and I have just come back from a holiday in Orkney and because of the fantastic Lynnfield Hotel we will be back very soon. We chose the hotel on Trip Advisor from the feedbacks but could never have expected the Out-Of-This-World experience we found at the hotel. Having travelled all over the World and stayed in some of... More

This hotel is very traditional in terms of furniture and atmosphere. The service is excellent and the food really good. It is a little way out of Kirkwall so a taxi is best to get into town(youngsters could walk) A very enjoyable break.

My wife and I stayed at the Lynnfield Hotel for three nights in August and would thoroughly recommend it. This is a small hotel (10-12 high quality rooms) with an excellent restaurant. Couldn't fault it. Drinks served in the lounge before dinner – all very civilised. We stayed in the Tjaldr Room – if they have a better one then... More

Just back from a week at the Lynnfield, what a place! We were delighted with the warm welcome received. Although it sits up the hill from Kirkwall its within easy walking distance but taxi's are readily available. The views on a good day are amazing! The Hotel itself is charming, lovely bar area & lounge. Our rooms were spotless, big... More
