Commodore Chalets
Reviewed 26 July 2009

The location was ideal. The rooms were fairly basic but very clean and functional with the usual hotel-room paraphernalia. Most rooms had a view over the surrounding fields or even better over the seascape of Scapa Flow. There was good access with generous parking. No problem was too small for the friendly helpful owners.The added bonus was an excellent restaurant next door which served local produce, deliciously prepared. The attached bar was a lively place affording the opportunity to mingle with the friendly locals and the bar owners! This conspired to produce an all-round wonderful experience.

The commodore Chalets are situated in the perfect place to spend a holiday. Everything about them is ideal. Lots of room inside. Individual parking slots right outside each chalet (a short walk for the overnighters). The owners are delightful and despite new owners taking over soon, we are back there again in May 2009.
We have stayed there more than 10 times over the years and would not dream of staying anywhere else on the islands.

We stayed for 3 days in Orkney and booked the Commodore Chalets totally at random and we were glad we did. Best breakfasts ever! Chalets immaculately clean and facilities excellent. The location excellent and the price very reasonable. There is a very good restaurant and pub nearby and at night a very relaxing place.

The Commodore chalets proved to be great value for money. Spotlessly clean and tidy, the rooms were also fairly spacious. The owners were very friendly and helpful too. Generous cooked or continental breakfast was supplied. Beautiful restaurant was also attached to the chalets (much classier inside than it looked on the outside). Would definitely stay here again and have recommended it to friends.
