The room was spotless and plenty of space for storage. We had a nice view of the bay and all staff we freindly and helpful. We decided against the cooked breakfast and pumped for the continental, was a great choice.
Wonderful fresh fruits, cereals and toast - as i said to Lynda ' You've got this spot on - well done to all here'
One improvement would be to offer evening meals, as the pub down the road stopped serving at 8.00pm and we had to drive to Kirkwall to get some food.
They don't take credit or debit cards here so bring plenty of cash
