I have stayed at the Stromabank Hotel on a number of occasions while in Hoy, Orkney. Though small, it is comfortable and well-managed with thoughtful and friendly service. Situated at the southern end of the island of Hoy it is easy to reach by car from the ferry terminal and there is adequate parking. Convenient for the "White Hill of Hamars" Nature Reserve. From the hotel the visitor can reach most of the attractions likely to tempt anyone seeking to visit the island though the famous sea-stack "The Old Man of Hoy" will require some walking from the nearest car-park at Rackwick.
A holiday in Hoy will probably best suit those seeking quiet, fresh air and relaxation and the Stromabank Hotel is the best place on the island to enjoy it from. There is a number of pleasant walks within easy reach.
Early booking is advisable for those contemplating a visit during the high summer.
