We loved our time in Orkney, helped in great part by our stay at the Foveran. We loved the location, which was outside the city of Kirkwall and overlooking the Scapa Flow. We had a lovely room with a view and nice ensuite bathroom.
The breakfasts were delicious and hardy, and served in the lovely dining room, with great views of the Scapa Flow.
The staff was helpful with advice on sights, etc. We had easy access to town and sights all over the island.
The dinners were so amazing. We thought we might eat there one night and then do pub dinners, but ... no way... we ate there every night! And we met so many nice people, both other hotel guests and locals, while we had pre-dinner drinks in the lounge.
I definitely want to go back to Orkney, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. I look forward to that day.
