Stayed here as a 'safe bet' assuming the standard would be good. First of all we were given a room in which someone had smoked and it stank. We requested another room, which was sorted out without problem. Our room had a cheap 4 poster bed with nothing hanging on the posts (it was just a wooden bedframe with wooden posts) and an old duvet cover, though the bed itself wasn't uncomfortable. The next mornign we had to get up early for the ferry to Sanday, and the shower took at least 5 minutes to warm up at all. Had breakfast in our room (due to it being too early) so didn't take advantage of the proper cooked breakfast. The staff were friendly enough and it's a nice building, plus it was clean, but the room was more basic than many of the b+bs we stayed in on Orkney and so it didn't really feel particularly good value.
