We selected this hotel for our weekend stay on the Orkney Mainland as it was close to most of the attractions we wanted to visit. It was a perfect selection. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our room.
The room was a good size and had a double bed and a single bed. There was also a small desk and a wardrobe and a TV. The bathroom was fairly small with a toilet, washbasin and a shower cubicle.
The room and bathroom were both clean, and the beds were also clean and comfortable. There was a free wifi connection which was useful for connecting my tablet to pick up my emails and to catch up with the news.
We had a nice dinner in the hotel restaurant. The meat we had could perhaps have been a little bit more tender, but all the dishes were well presented and tasted good. Breakfast was included in the rate and we were well looked after.
The only negative issue was that our room was directly above the bar, and as it was Saturday night it was quite noisy. But thankfully the noise subsided quite early and by the time we actually went to bed there was little to disturb our rest.
All in all a very pleasant stay and definitely a hotel I would recommend for someone on a short trip to the Orkney Mainland to visit attractions such as Skara Brae, Meas Howe, Ring of Broadgar and the Standing Stones at Stennes.
