Totally in love with Orkney Islands and with this hotel. If given a chance will stay here whenever I visit Orkney. Bar has all the variety which stays open till 1 am with locals and great music. Very homely atmosphere with everyone in staff ready to corporate for any special requests. Superb rooms facing Loch Stenness.

Helpful and friendly with all the local knowledge to advise on getting around the islands, things to do and places to visit. The hotel is cosy and warm with a stylish... More

Before I start my review of this hotel I want to say that I have stayed in many hotels both in the UK and throughout the world ranging from luxury to more budget accommodation. We booked to stay at the Standing Stones last minute as we ended up having an impromptu extension to our holiday by deciding to explore the... More

We ate here as it was the closest to our cottage. The food was possible the worst we have ever had and we only ate it because we were so hungry. My wife had lentil soup to start, flavourless, it came with a slice of sliced bread which was stale. My breaded cheese portions were cooked so fast the breadcrumbs... More

I enjoyed drinks and food at this hotel in December last year, then returned for drinks and plenty of pool games in January. I tried to also enjoy food the second time I was there,but it was about 8.30pm in... More

We just popped into this hotel for lunch today. We have been to Orkney many times and driven past the hotel often. It is located in a stunning place with views over the standing stones of sternness. Strange then that the bar has windows that face the road rather than the stones! However today we just wanted a warm lunch... More

The rooms were great and the staff very friendly. Food was lovely and I couldn't fault the overall service. Would gladly stay here again. Stunning sunsets each night over the loch at the back of the hotel. The bar and room prices are very reasonable
