The double room here was not at all worse than the rooms in various B&Bs - maybe some furniture was a bit older, but the room was cosy, the bed very comfy, the walls painted in bright colors, the bathroom clean and OK. The wifi works very well. We only slept here only one night and we arrived very late, but there was no problem with it and the management kindly arranged to leave keys for us. The location of the Orcades is also very convenient, 10 minutes walk from the bus station. This is definitely a good value for money while in Orkneys!
