We stayed at the Sands Hotel for three nights as part of a tour of the Highlands and Islands.
Although this hotel has a rating of four stars in the 'Small Hotel' classification, I'm not sure how it managed to get it. Three stars would be more realistic.
The hotel was comfortable, and recently renovated, but the walls are thin (we could hear the sound of the TV in the next room, and footsteps from the room above), the rooms small and the quality of food was good rather than great. The curtains were also made of fairly thin fabric which let through the light a little too much (especially as it never really gets dark on Orkney this time of year)
On the plus side, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and the prices for food and accomodation were completely reasonable.
We wouldn't stay at the Sands Hotel again - not because of anything particularly wrong, but because there is so much better choice out there.
