I stayed at Polrudden for three nights in April and it was a great experience.
The location is excellent, a short walk from the city centre, but away from any noise. Very peaceful grounds and pleasant garden.
To greet you outside (along with Linda) was a very sweet cream retriever and an equally sweet black kitty! A plus for any traveller missing their own pets. For those with pet allergies, these animals do not enter the guest part of the house, so you have no worries there.
The room sizes were good and the en-suite baths as well. Tea-making and television in the rooms, with access to the internet in the guest lounge. Views from the front are across the water to the ton and from the back, across the garden to a pastured hill.
Breakfast was plentiful and served by Linda with a smile!
All in all an excellent option to a hotel stay and I would hightly recommend Polrudden for anyone wanting clean, friendly and quiet accommodation in Kirkwall!
