Malcolm and his team provide a warm welcome. The lounge with real fire is a lovely place to enjoy a pre dinner drink. The food is locally sourced and of extremely high quality. The wines are excellent. The rooms are spacious and well furnished-mine had a large whirlpool bath. This is a lovely place to stay!

Stayed 2 nights whilst on business. Was given a fantastic spacious room with lovely big bathroom. Stayed for dinner on both nights, food is beautiful and changes daily with fresh local produce. Next to Highland Park distillery with plenty of fine malts in the bar. Comfortable stay, I will be back!

We stayed here for two very windy nights in October and had such a lovely time that we would not hesitate to return. Staying at a hotel out of season is always a bit of a risk because you can't possibly expect the hotel to keep full staff on with only a couple of guests in the hotel. The Lynnfield... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in August as part of a walking tour. I tend to choose small inns when travelling in Britain. Each has its charm and quaintness and Lynnfield hotel had plenty of both. The breakfasts were perfect with a large assortment of cereals, fresh yogurt, fruit and cheeses available from a buffet plus a substantial selection... More

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
