This hotel was very central, the perfect location for my work trip and was easy to find from the airport. The reception was unattended when I arrived but there is a bell to ring and someone came promptly. The rooms were modern and fairly large, the bathroom looked like it had recently been renovated. All the usual facilities however I... More

I booked the table the day before but needn't have bothered as the restaurant was ominously empty apart from 3 others. We ordered straight away & then had to wait at least half an hour for our starters in this empty room, on arrival the lentil soup was ok, haggis fritters terribly greasy & over rich, I had the local...

A colleague and I stayed in this hotel while in Kirkwall. The rooms were very modern and beautifully decorated and the bathroom was incredibly clean. The only negatives that I found was the sheets on the bed were made of a material that just made it impossible to get warm so I spent the first ten minutes in bed making... More

I booked a room for five nights for my wife and I. We arrived late (11.00 pm) and had a little trouble finding it by car. Eventually we did get there and was greeted by a young lady who checked us in.. She showed us to the lift and sent us on our way. We took the lift to the... More

We loved this hotel. The staff were really helpful and pleasant, the room was light, comfortable and modern, with a great view over the rooftops. The windows could be fully opened. The breakfast was more than adequate.

We stayed as part of a Rabbies tour. Mounthoolie lane is a walking lane not a driving lane. Nice spacious hotel room with a good bathroom. Near the main street where shops and restaurants are. Hotel is attached to a bar where we got drinks one night. Breakfast was good.
