      Brilliant hotel

      This hotel was excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Everything was very Covid secure. The food in the restaurant was wonderful, particularly the lamb and we dined there several times as it was the best place to eat in Kirkwall. The staff worked so hard to make our stay perfect

    • 6.0.Good

      Could do better.

      Could do with more, better trained, staff esp in restaurant. For the money, I’d expect the default to room service, rather than having to request fresh towels, etc. Dated. Great location in Kirkwall town centre.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Very pleasant stay.

      We travelled to Kirkwall, Mainland Orkney as foot passengers and chose to stay at the Orkney hotel rather than others on the basis of the food we could expect and the warm feelings the bar and restaurant seemed to exude. We were not disappointed in the slightest. Breakfast with local haggis was delicious, dinner the same and the Orkney gin in the Gin bar was delightful Even more delightful was the display of lovely artwork of a very high standard to be found everywhere. The location was nicely central with the bus terminus at less than 10 minutes walk away. The staff were engaging.
