I and a family member stayed here recently and all-in-all enjoyed our stay. The twin room we stayed in was 'compact' and the shower left little room for manoeuvre. We stayed on the top floor which was only reached by stairs which could prove difficult for the less mobile. That aside there were no real complaints, the food (in the... More

Pleasant welcoming staff, food good (although chips needed just a little more time in the fryer), a tad overpriced for pub grub in the bar but two local real ales on, both in good condition. Special? No. Would I revisit? Probably.

The location couldn't have been more perfect, with one of the stone rings within walking distance, and views of the Ring of Brodgar, Maeshow and Ness of Brodgar from the hotel. The food and accommodation were great, and it was worth the extra cost for the loch view room (otherwise you end up looking out over the main road), they... More

I stayed at the Standing Stones hotel in August - September 2104. It was ideal. The staff were friendly and helpful without pestering you. The came across as genuine. I got what I paid for; good value, the place was clean and while it was not the Ritz it was great. Food was good and when I asked for food... More

Fantastic view from our top floor room across the loch to standing stones. Great central location for exploring Orkney mainland. Very comfortable bed in a clean, comfortable room.. All staff very friendly. All the food we had was good although more variety on the menus would be better. We stayed for a week and would be happy to return.

This is a wonderful hotel, wonderful location, great pub and restaurant, wonderful views of loch, wonderful owners Linda and Alan and wonderful staff. Everyone is very friendly. I bring small groups here (usually 10 or less) and have for the last 2 years. Great location. Some rooms shower and bath and some rooms shower only. Clean and comfortable. Even heat... More

Have just spent a week at this hotel. First impression was that it was very good but disappointment was to follow. The location is perfect - views and access to archaeological sites. The quality of the food was very good. As I was with group we had a limited menu with choices but not offered the a la carte which... More

Ther location is impressive - but nothing else was. We asked for tea & coffee in the lounge when we arrived in late afternoon, and that's what we got - no biscuits offered. We had booked, and paid extra for, a loch view room. The loch view was there, but spoilt by the view of an outbuilding surrounded by empty... More

Arrived here late at night and were given a friendly enough welcome from the reception staff. However, had a very noisy night due to road traffic and hardly slept a wink. To top it all, I unfortunately lost the key to our room and when I reported this to the Manager found he had an awful attitude towards me and... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. This hotel is adequate but could be so much better. Lacks a personal touch and needs some refurbishment. The food however is good and the view of the loch especially at sunset & sunrise is stunning
