Originally, I booked this hotel through Booking.com. Their software is not terribly intuitive and I ended up booking the wrong dates. So I also booked The Stenness hotel and The Kirkwall Hotel before there was no room left on the island. I looked for B and Bs but none were available. Everything was selling out fast. I emailed the hotel... More

The hotel is perfectly located within Kirkwall within easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. It has a quaint pub attached where we had a nice dinner and drinks. The hotel is also conveniently located on the island for sight-seeing. Breakfast each morning was good. Compared to other places we stayed during our 2 week trip through Scotland, it was... More

This hotel is spoiled by the rude middle aged woman at the reception in the mornings. She is snappy if you would like to check out before 7:30am. There are nicer places to stay in Kirkwall. Also one of our party complained about the food and the reply he got was 'well that's just what it is' (from the same... More

Hotel is in Kirkwall on the Orkney Islands. In the downtown area, and close to the ferry docks for trips to the northern islands or Aberdeen. Good restaurant and bar, Very helpful staff, offering travel tips and maps. Close to the cathedral and the bus station (for trips to places on the island). Many points of interest within 20 minutes... More

Fab location, right in the centre of town allowing easy walking distance to the ferries, shopping and restaurants. They were really helpful when we booked, providing vegan options for one of us. We had a superior room (207), which was nicely decorated. The bed was really comfortable, and the bathroom was very new and had a properly powerful shower. Minor... More

Had a lovely meal with friends in Matchmakers this weekend, surprisingly we were the only folk there, but I have to say the food and the service is fantastic! There is a good variety on the menu, along with the specials board all at a reasonable price. All the staff are lovely and they had remembered us from our last... More

My son and I have just spent a very cozy, friendly and comfortable off-season night here while enjoying Orkney's wild winter weather, in itself a wonderful experience. The hotel side was excellent: a nice, spacious, and clean room, good modern bathroom with piping hot water, good fast wifi in the room. One could not ask for more! We ate in... More
