Just had an evening meal at this hotel. Choice wasn't great and meals were a bit pricey. Best part werethe starters, a crab and salmon mousse, and an apple fritter with black pudding. Both these starters were excellent. The main courses though were a bit disappointing but ok as such. Only one local ale available and that ran out.

Excellent hotel with a family like setting. Excellent restaurant with a good food variety including buffalo meat. The hotel is located off the beaten path (not near city shops but has a good view of the standing stones and North Sea). This is the first hotel I have given an over all excellent grade.

Nice situated hotel.. Not completely hygienic could amend a few things.. Staff where friendly but one bar maid trish a bit to over friendly flirts with anyone !! But apart from her the place would do great with a little spruce up and new bar staff. But will not be staying again

Stayed at this hotel as part of a shooting party for 4 nights, location was perfect, easy access to the rest of the island. Food was spot on and the staff were excellent. Rooms were clean and comfortable if slightly dated but for our purposes they were perfect, nice bar and good pub grub. Had a good chat with the... More

We travelled to Orkney in August 2010 just after my aunt passed away, we booked this hotel online and it went rather well. Once we went to the hotel and went into the room I was with my family, there were beds scattered all over the place: it looked like somebody was moving out. As we went to bed, I... More

The staff were all charming, friendly and helpful. The location for visiting the sites in the Orkneys was very convenient. The food was good with huge portions. The room was clean and an adequate size, but there were a few noise issues from the room above. I wish to return to the Orkneys and will definitely stay in this hotel... More

As mentioned by other reviews this hotel was in a great spot, but have to agree with others about soundproofing, it was indeed very noisy early morning as other people starting moving about,it was almost as if they were in the same room....!(badly needs attending to,) having said that the staff were really great and couldn't do enough for you,...

Perfect position for all archaeological sites, most within view. But sadly let down by total lack of warmth or ambience . Rooms dated ,but clean. Big issues were sounds carrying from other rooms, walls must be paper thin, also the showers, poor water pressure ,alternating temperatures and loud creaking every time you moved heard by all your neighbours! Food, very... More

Handy spot for visiting Standing Stones of Stenness and Ring of Brodgar. Also there is a live archeological dig going on on the lochside between these 2 sites which is well worth a visit. Glad I was not paying for the room as was a bit steep at £90 a night for B&B, in a room with just an electric... More
