I have never stayed in the rooms at this hotel, this review is for the pub section of the building. 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

Excellent, clean, modern facilities. Dog friendly. Couldn't have done enough for me on my birthday. Lovely owners. Fantastic food - we keep going back to the restaurant even though we don't necessarily stay there. Staff are very friendly and give good advice on where to go on the island.

We ended up eating at this restaurant by recommendation from a local at a nearby archeological site. We walked in without reservations but had no problems getting a table (actually a huge comfortable booth). The service was great, atmosphere comfortable, prices reasonable and the food delicious. Our 7 year-old was able to special order a plain cheese toasty as well... More

This hotel is located slightly outside Stromness so unless you have a car - or come in a group like us and get taken everywhere by coach - it is not very accessible. But it is a good spot if you arrive by car and then carry on walking. The Orkenys are very good indeed for walkers! It is very... More

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.
