A welcoming and caring host, Patsy was full of helpful advice and the hall is well stocked with ideas of places to see and activities to do. Even a large OS map for planning trips further afield. It is well located if with your own transport, just out of the centre of Kirkwall. Great for watching the boats coming and going.
Having a range of options for breakfast and hence cost is such a good idea but one we had not come across elsewhere. The rooms are modest but most adequate.
