We stayed at Houghton Bay Lodge for two nights and had a wonderful time. Lynda and Alf, the owners, were the perfect hosts and couldn't do enough to make us welcome. Our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. We had a lovely view towards Hoy and the interesting small harbour with ferries coming and going. The little decanter of sherry was a very thoughtful and welcome extra in our room. The breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of fresh fruits, Orkney cheese, ham, yoghurts cereals and more or a full Scottish breakfast which was delicious. We will definitely stay at this lovely hotel again and can highly recommend it as a great place to stay when visiting Orkney.
