We stayed for three nights in the last month of our six months of travelling around the world. This was our first trip to Orkney and we weren't quite sure what there was to see and do. This was no problem, as Phil took the time each morning to map out an itinerary for us, in between courses of our delicious breakfasts.
Our room was large and very comfortable, with everything we could have needed. There's really no need to stay in Stromness or Kirkwall, as Hammersmith is within a fifteen-ish minute drive of each of them. Most of the attractions are out of the towns, anyway.
All in all, a wonderful stay. Thanks very much, Phil and Lynn.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lynn and Phil welcome you to HammerSmith. We are situated in the heart of the west Mainland near to the lochs of Harray and Stenness, close to the World Heritage neolithic sites of Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and the Ness of Brodgar. We are on the main road from Birsay to Finstown conveniently close to both Kirkwall (12 miles) and Stromness (10 miles). With the Merkister Hotel only 2 miles and the Smithfield Arms 4 miles away you do not have to go far for a relaxing drink or a meal. Fishermen can take advantage of the hire boats available at the Merkister Hotel which is situated on the shore of Loch Harray. Phil is a registered tour guide so will be able to offer advice on the best areas to see in Orkney ... more less
