Small bedroom on 3rd floor facing harbour giving nice view. Excellent bed & pillows with modern wardrobe, worktop/drawer unit plus bedside units with drawer. Over furnished with two armchairs plus small table resulting in cramped feel. TV (freeview channels) with text & subtitles functioning.
Tea/coffee tray with local shortbread & bottled water. One radiator plus hairdryer. No aircon or fridge but one radiator and adequate plug sockets.
Shower room with gel and shampoo supplied but no shelf or ledge in shower so don’t slip on the soap.
Interesting antique lift with old style double doors operated manually.
Hotel is privately owned and very popular, so restaurant and adjacent pub are well patronised. Hotel bar is quieter and pub prices prevail. They offer a good range of local brews (see photo)
Cooked breakfast very nice and served to your table.
Service standards were good & although bedroom walls were thin we were lucky that our neighbours were just as tired as us and we were not disturbed.
Kirkwall Hotel was commandeered as officer’s quarters during WW2 and they usually know the best spots in town.
