Review of Lynnfield Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 Jul 2023
This hotel is a real gem! The rooms are beautiful and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Both breakfast and dinner were great. It was lovely to relax in the comfortable lounge after dinner and sample some of their amazing whisky collection!

Fabulous hotel ! Best breakfast we have ever had. Highly recommended. The hotel owners went above and beyond for us and nothing was any trouble. Very relaxing and we both had a brilliant sleep as it was so quiet. It is right beside the distillery if you want to do a tour there.

Room tip: It’s at the top of a hill but a taxi is not expensive from the harbour area

We had a short trip to Kirkwall while we were in Scotland - just one day and night there - and wanted a quiet, comfortable hotel not far from the airport or the town. We saw Lynnfield on TripAdvisor, looked at photos and read reviews and decided to book a room. You’re able to choose the room from what’s available since they’re all different. At least that’s the case with the older rooms in the main building. There is a newer section we didn’t actually go into.

We chose the Langskaill room. It is more of a suite, with a sitting area that can be closed off from the bedroom. It’s a lovely room with a view of the water, and the bed and pillows were very comfortable.

Downstairs there are a couple of comfortable lounge areas for enjoying a wee dram, or tea, reading a book, playing a game. And the restaurant is also on this floor. We found it all to be very charming and we would definitely stay there again on any future visits.

We stayed at The Lynnfield Hotel for one night and had dinner and breakfast there. Upon arrival, the staff were friendly and checked us in quickly and showed us to our room. Initially, we were very apprehensive as the decor and smell of the hotel was old fashioned. There was lots of random furniture and ornaments placed everywhere, so it did feel rather cluttered and disorganised.

However, our room was completely different. It had electronic blinds, the bed was large and there was a sofa to relax on. The bathroom was large with pleasant toiletries. The bath was more like a jacuzzi. Although, disappointingly, we could not use it because the plug hole would not work and it leaked water. The shower was good though, but it was just a shame about the bath.

The food at dinner time was served quickly and was to a high standard with pleasant service. The breakfast the following morning was lovely and they allowed me to change what I had with my pancakes.

The staff ensured our needs were met and kindly allowed us to keep our suitcases downstairs whilst we explored Kirkwall before going to get our hire car.

Overall, a pleasant experience. However, the decor and hotel generally needs some updates and TLC to ensure it matches the high standard they offer in their rooms and food as right now, it does not quite marry up.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in late April and then three more nights in early May. We stayed in a newer room the first time and a larger deluxe room in the older part the next time. Both were nice rooms, the newer had nice views to Kirkwall and nice modern Orkney style bed, drapes, covers, etc. The other room had a big four poster and not such a nice view, but the extra space and jacuzzi were quite enjoyable. Both were quiet.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The dinners were good, we got to sample pretty much everything. The room service was great as well. We didn’t eat cooked breakfasts, but the selection appeared to be quite adequate.

They have some nice local beer on tap and a huge selection of whisky (not our thing, however).

It is also very easy to get to and park but within walking distance to town.

We highly recommend the Lynnfield, we enjoyed our stay very much.
