I have just spent 3 nights in this hotel and apart from a few niggles, for the price it wasn't too bad a place to stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food (I only had breakfast there) was delicious and generously portioned. My room was a wee bit small and tired but, as I only needed somewhere to sleep, it was adequate. The lounge bar could do with some attention but, again, it proved adequate. The hotel is ideally based for exploring Kirkwall as it is only a few minutes walk from all the major attractions and the free carpark round the back is useful. If you are going to explore Orkney's Mainland and make the most of all that this fantastic island has to offer, but do not intend to sit in your hotel room and be pampered, then this reasonably priced hotel is for you.
