We only had one night in this beautiful hotel but, when I go back to Orkney I won't even consider staying somewhere else. Absolutely gorgeous room with a huge bed, lovely dram and wine to welcome us. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxing, the type of place you can relax with a drink and a good book and just tune out. Highly recommended.

This is a gem of a hotel, furnished throughout to the highest standard, bedrooms are large and well appointed.

Bar has over 250 whiskys available, Malcom is a perfect host and will describe any dram before you make your choice. Highlight must be the open fire in the residents lounge, sip your malt here watching the fire die to some glowing embers.

Food excellent, always something different on offer, good sized portions and excellent waitress service. Hotel has a large wine list available, too many too choose from.

Overall, first class establishment, first class host. You would be barking mad to book anywhere else on Orkney.

We found this hotel when looking for a meal, although we were staying in a B&B. From then on we ate there every night. The food was fresh and inviting - in particular the seaweed fed lamb was excellent as was all the seafood on the menu. Coeliac Disease was easily managed with their personalised service. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting of HIghland Park whisky before our meal each night together with the ambience of the bar area. The wonderful views from the dining room and the long days meant that the views stayed with us throughout our meal. When we go to Kirkwall again, we will definitely stay at Lynnfield Hotel..

Room Tip: We did not stay here, only had meals.

Stayed 4 nights in August on our way to Shetland. Room was spacious, the bathroom was massive and we appreciated the four poster bed. The small decanters of Highland Park scotch (distillery next door!) and local wine were a lovely touch. The staff and manager/owner, Malcolm, were all very helpful and friendly. Lovely people who all went that extra mile. Helped us out when we had a transport problem which we are eternally grateful for. The food was all excellent, well presented and it was good to see an emphasis on local Orcadian fare. Had the best steak in my life at this hotel. Bit of a walk into town but taxis are cheap! Our only negative point was the lack of water pressure in the bathroom. We certainly left feeling cared for and rested. All part of the warm Orcadian welcome.Will return one day and stay for longer.

This hotel is one of the best I have stayed in and I have been in many all over the world.I stayed at the Lynnfield over the weekend and would definitely not agree with the reviews that gave this hotel a poor rating.It was the second time I had stayed in a year.The rooms are beautiful-many have four poster beds with great linen.The bathrooms are enourmous with underfloor heating,lovely toiletries,great towels and showers.The food is locally sourced and cooked incredibly well.Malcolm and his team make you very very welcome from the off.They have a fine selection of whiskeys and wines and are very happy to extend a very great welcome.
This may not be in a beautiful setting and not a fancy new building or indeed a period house.But the minute you walk in the door you feel (or should!) like you have made the right choice.
