Very comfortable room but the only misgivings that we had were no USB sockets within the room, a toilet cistern that took forever to refill itself and would certainly be beneficial to have a grab rail to use when accessing the shower within the bath..

Very friendly helpful staff. Lovely food. Situation perfect right opposite the harbour, wonderful ever changing views. Hot water too hot if anything. Water system had to be learnt. Room very comfortable.

Family dinner on a Sunday evening. Restaurant has been beautifully refurbished. Food was excellent with a wide choice for everyone and Isla & her staff were super friendly. Highlights were the smoked fish risotto and the sticky toffee pudding. Will be back soon

Popped in this evening after struggling to find somewhere to eat in kirkwall. Although they were busy with bus tour guests they were able to serve us. Steak pie was tasty and great value. Veg cooked to perfection. Sticky toffee pudding with orkney ice cream was great. Staff friendly, service speedy, couldn't fault it!

This hotel is a little tired. However, this is more than compensated for by the brilliant staff, especially Isla who seems to work 24 hours a day. We were made so welcome by her and the team in the bar and restaurant. on the night of my birthday, I came down to find they'd dressed the table and provided a cake replete with firework. Food in the restaurant ranges from very good to excellent. Drinks in the bar weren't over-expensive. I had a front room with a view over the harbour - lovely to wake up and see the ferries going in and out. Woud definitely return
