This hotel retains an ambience of a past era. Wood panelling in the lounge, dated pictures and furniture add to the charm. We stayed 2 nights and had 2 meals ( 4 adults, 1 child). The rooms are huge, with old furniture, often ornate, and modern facilities- lovely bathroom, TV, coffee/ tea in the room, and a welcoming small decanters... More

Let's start with the positives. The Lynnfield has a superb whisky library and snug. For devotees it's a delight and Malcolm the manager is extremely knowledgeable on the subject. The produce used in the restaurant is also of a good quality, so all the ingredients are there for an enjoyable and authentic stay. However, it's the quality of the accommodation,... More

We were referred to the Lynnfield Hotel and Restaurant for dinner one night. We heard that they served mutton that had been fed only seaweed and we were enticed. So, we stopped there in the morning on our way out to see other sights and made reservations for that evening. We asked about the lamb and were told that it... More

This was a generous hotel. the rooms were large and comfortable. the beds were large and comfortable. the bathroom was large and luxurious. Views are not great as it is been surrounded with small houses and the car park is in front, but it made a great base to explore some of the beautiful Orkney mainland. Breakfast was very good...

My husband and I stayed t the Lynnfield for five nights. Our room was very large, and our bathroom, enormous. The hotel is full of genuine Orkney furniture, paintings, artifacts. It is has a very cozy, homey atmosphere, with a wonderful attention to detail. The restaurant at the hotel is excellent: seafood as fresh as can be, desserts all homemade.

We stayed at Lynnfield during a walking trip in Orkney. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Our room was a double, very spacious and comfortable with nice antique furniture. The bed was a bit hard for my taste but staff immediately arranged with some extra bedding and then it was alright. The room had an on-suite, gigantic bathroom! Very cosy... More

We stayed for 6 nights as part of a group of walkers. Our room was superb, with lots of space, a four poster bed and a huge bathroom. Food was excellent and the public rooms were very cosy. It's a bit of a walk into the town, which is the only downside. On the other hand, it's right next to... More

We enjoyed our stay at Lynnfield Hotel, carefully and lovingly managed by its hands-on owners. The style is country house, and our bedroom (Jarls) was in reality a suite, with a comfortable separate sitting room, and a large modern bathroom with a jacuzzi style bath and a large separate shower cabinet. Furniture is substantial and attractive. The room was supplied... More

My wife booked us in here for my birthday treat recently for an evening meal and overnight stay. The welcome was relaxed, efficient and attentive. We received a free upgrade due to a cancellation and the room was fantastic. Jacuzzi bath and in keeping with the decor throughout the hotel, all the furniture and fittings were antiques from days gone... More
