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...

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...

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...

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...

Stayed at this hotel for business and it exceeded my expectations, warm welcome at reception and fantastic rooms. Got an upgrade to a suite which was very spacious, well decorated and comfortable. Very accommodating as we were waiting on a colleague we had to eat late, but it wasn't a problem. Breakfast was made to order and certainly set me...

Stayed 2 nights and where warmly welcomed, taken good care of by friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable bed, spacious room. Good food in the bar with a low key atmosphere. Located close to "everything" in the centre of Kirkwall.

This is as much a review of the dining room of the Albert Hotel in Kirkwall, Orkney, as the hotel itself. The Albert is right downtown Kirkwall and in the middle of lots of stuff like the Magnus Cathedra, fantastic. Great shopping. Butcher shops feature local jams and I bought a traditional Scottish officer's knife for my collection. The room...
