Three of us stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every moment of it, a minor hiccup with the water heating but as a Good Hotel should they sorted it out with out blinking an eye full marks for that, even tho it was not their fault hot water elements can blow at the most inconvenient times and i am certain they pick it when you need it the most. Room was good Bed was great slept like logs most nights except for a few rowdy customers leaving but hey when in a pub what do you expect.

Now the Food well let me tell you if you decide not to stay at least go there for the food the chef top marks again, every meal we had was plentiful and delicious the Orkney Steak and Ale pie was one of the best i have had the pleasure to eat usually the steak is like old boot soles this one the meat melted in your mouth. the Fish and chips were great.

Over all Staff were fantastic Rooms great and Food don't eat elsewhere you will be disappointed. the only niggle was small tight stair case but after all it is a old pub and space was a premium then.

Only called here for a coffee: espresso listed at £2.20 - OK, byt asked how much double espresso and was informed with deadpan expression and no further comment 'twice that price'

Coffee-lover that I am, I refuse to pay £4.40 for a small cup of coffee, however good, and one which even Costa would have 'only charged about £2.90 for. Had an Americano instead - far less extortionate.

Took the shine of things and rather a shame 'cos otherwise seemed an OK place and deservedly a successful one.

Although the rooms are out the back on a street they were well stocked with tea and coffee and were clean. Bed was only a double and was quite hard. Unfortunatley you could hear other people using bathroom and walking around. Food in the hotel was good and the staff were very helpful with forward bookings and printing out boarding passes

Room Tip: Request an upstairs room as you can hear bathroom and walking downstairs

Had a very nice, quick stay here. Got in late due to ferry, but was greeted warmly and efficiently. The lady who checked us in (Julie) was very nice and made sure we had dinner (which was delicious). We were in the annex and our room was clean and comfy. Breakfast was good too. Very handy location for ferry and for sightseeing. Would recommend staying here!

We had a one night stay,the room was small but clean,we were made very welcome and the staff were very friendly.The food was very good and we enjoyed our stay,there was some noise at night but the Hotel is right on the Harbour next to the ferry terminal and bus stop.Orkney is a fantastic place to visit,thousands of people arrive on the island from all over the world every year,so they are doing something right over there.The Ferry Inn may have the odd fault but where do find a hotel that is faultless,go and see for yourself and and make your own mind up,i thought it was very good so GIVE THE HOTEL A BREAK.

Thank you for taking time to give us this review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Your kind words are very much appreciated. We are pleased to say that we have had a very busy summer. Last winter we closed for several months to refurbish the whole of the downstairs, including the bar and restaurant. We have also re-painted the whole outside of the building and put in some new case and sash windows with funding from the Stomness Town Heritage Initiative. We will continue to make improvements to the Inn over the coming winter. The hotel owners are all local folk who are keen for the Ferry Inn to be a place that locals and visitors are proud off. Any feedback on our progress is much appreciated!
