We called in to the Standing Stones Hotel for a bar meal, and while we were there I spoke to receptionist to see if they had a double room for a couple of nights as the hotel we were meant to stay in was disgusting so we wanted to move. We were accommodated and the room was on the first... More

Really terrible. The rooms are ok- but too expensive for this price. All employees really unfriendly ( never made this experience before in Scotland) breakfast out of the can- from coffee, over scrambled eggs(really true!) to porridge. If empty-then empty( juices) and so on....

A family meal, good food, well presented. Service a bit slow, but room was very busy. Food when it arrived was tasty and plentiful. Have visited this venue often and of late the food has been very good.

I refused to eat the cold food that they eventually dished up. They waiter was nonplussed when I showed him my uneaten meal and refused to pay. He replied "Oh, this doesn't usually happen." Standing Stones Hotel is a welcoming snug refuge from the elements, but that's where it stopped for us. I was part of a large group that... More

An excellent location to explore Neolithic Orkney. A modern but not trendy hotel that provides a great home base. I was there with a Heatherlea Birding Holiday Group which guaranteed attention as they are regular customers. I found the mattress poor and I had to ask for towels after the used ones were removed but had nothing else to criticise... More

Linda and Alan, both approachable and easy to get on with, are working tirelessly to improve the hotel with a very amenable team of hard working staff. The hotel is comfortable if not luxurious; our room was small with a newly refurbished en-suite. Our only problem was hot water but Alan worked hard with the plumbers during our stay to... More

Stayed in suite for 4 days - catalogue of things over the four days for which we are still awaiting recognition from the hotel and an apology even though we filled out comment form, emailed the hotel on several occasions! DAY 1 - arrived to find painters in the room painting the inside of the wardrobe, not only was the... More

Still love staying here - 3 times now - with my small groups! Thanks for all the love and care you put into your hotel and pub and restaurant! Will be there again in August! So central and quiet and great food and great rooms and great staff!

During The Folk Festival 3 of us went here for High Tea between musical events . The menu looked good but when our food was served the vegetables were cold the chips had been cooked long ago and reheated and the chicken was lukewarm and looked like it was out a tin . The macaroni cheese had no cheese and... More

I stayed here for one night while waiting to catch the ferry back to the mainland. The hotel is very nice, the rooms and public areas clean and smart and all the staff I encountered where very pleasant. I have an enjoyable evening meal and a very very very early breakfast before catching the 6:30am ferry. I'd happily stay here... More
