“Excellent pub restaurant”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

This review is for the pub restaurant as we didn't stay at the Albert Hotel. We had a fantastic three-course evening meal which was well cooked, beautifully served and tasted great. The waitress - who also ran the bar, directed lost people, took orders, cleared tables and chatted to everyone - is a real asset to the place ... Wonderful with everyone. Very happy to recommend the Albert Hotel pub restaurant.

In the heart of the city, and it is within walking distance to all attractions. Clean rooms, great beds. The mattresses were a little too soft for our liking, but this is a matter of taste. TV, cooking facilities for coffee and tea. Our room was right over the end of the bar on the 1st floor, so we became part bothered by guests who smoked right under the window. There was also some noise associated with the bar. If we wanted contact with the staff, we had to go to the bar to retrieve them. Breakfast was as breakfasts in Scotland, but it took a long time before we got in contact with the waitress who took up the order. Can recommend this hotel but ask for one room away from the bar.

My wife and I stayed here 5th july to 8th july 2013 on our weekend trip to kirkwall.
This was our first visit to this lovely island and our first stay at the Albert Hotel.
The hotel is spotless with first class staff and food. Our stay could not have been made more enjoyable and i would recommend the hotel for anyone thinking of visiting Kirkwall and the other islands.

Located in a quiet central area, newly renovated, small but clean rooms. Very small reception, managed with little smiles. Without signs to the elevator, no one warns you when you bring your luggage alone plans. Lots of fruit in small bowls for continental breakfast, other food on request.

Was a little worried about staying at this Hotel as it only had 2 star rating!! But I was so glad I booked it, it's an amazing cozy friendly hotel with really nice decor, very clean, and the bed was extremely comfy. The breakfast was very good with plenty to eat. The only thing I could fault was the TV in the room didn't work, but I didn't complain as we weren't there to watch TV anyway.

My sister and I stayed for 4 nights last week whilst visiting family on the Island. We found the management, staff, facilities, accommodation and food excellent. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful and we would certainly use the Hotel again.

Stayed in this hotel for business for two nights. Very fiendly and helpful staff. Central location close to all amenities in Kirkwall. Enjoyed breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the service was great and the food very nice. Very clean and spacious room with WiFi access which was very useful. Will definitely be staying here again and would recommend it.
