The rooms are small, the beds are small, the bathrooms are small, but everything is clean. The location is what makes this hotel a great place to stay in Kirkwall. If you go for a room with a view of the harbor, expect to be woken by the sounds of noisy gulls and drunken locals. I thought it was worth it! The shower is a little awkward to get into, but it's clean and it does the job. There is parking in front of the hotel, but not enough for the number of guests. There is a bar and restaurant, both very good. However, staff has made it quite clear that priority for both of these is the locals and not the hotel guests. They wouldn't take dinner reservations. The restaurant is fabulous and not at all expensive. If you order anything from the bar other than a beer or a whiskey, be prepared to tell the bartender how to make it. But staff is very friendly.
