As you will see from the other reviews this is not a hotel for people used to staying in Holidays Inns. The bathrooms are not ensuite, some of the decor is homely rather than Boutique. But the overall atmosphere is warm and charming and the service is bright, friendly and efficient. The food is not Michelin but it is natural and well-cooked. I didn't go to Orkney to experience London or New York style hotels, and Woodwick House fits in perfectly with the slightly wild and historical feel of the Orkney Islands themselves.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Woodwick House is a warm & welcoming historic country house overlooking the island of Gairsay, offering comfortable accommodation and home cooked food. Set in an extraordinary, peaceful location with bluebell woodland, a cascading burn & a secluded bay on this sheltered part of Orkney, within easy reach of the main historic sites, bird reserves and sandy beaches. Step into a unique and special place and make yourself at home, We love Woodwick’s energy with its sea air and the flowing water with the wind in the trees and bird song. ... more less
