We booked the Foveran for our first trip to Orkney based on its excellent TripAdvisor reviews. It exceeded our expectations. The rooms are modern, immaculately clean, and very comfortable. The staff was attentive and friendly without being intrusive; they have a lovely island way of taking time to chat if you'd like to.
Dinners (and breakfasts) were memorable--freshly and perfectly prepared local ingredients, from fritters with local Grimbister cheese to scallops beautifully grilled to a sticky toffee pudding we ordered on a whim and ordered again the next two evenings. We cannot think of a happier way to spend a week in the Orkney Islands.
