    Perfectly placed for the ferry and for eating out.

    All was good

  • Older travelers

    Our room was lovely, very spacious and very nicely decorated, it had an extremely comfortable king size bed,free view flat screen telly and tea/coffee facilities. The view was great over the harbour, although weather was poor, which of course is not hotel's fault, just typical Scottish weather! The staff were more than helpful, there was a good choice on menu, we ate there each evening with no complaints. Lovely choice of breakfast was available. The only slight complaint is that we thought a 10am check out was a little bit on early side but after checking with the hotel we were able to extend at no cost another hour and half. We would definitely recommend this hotel, and would certainly stay there again.

    Slightly early check out, but was able to extend.

    Spacious modern and well equipped bedroom. On site restaurant.

    The food, though large portions, was lacking finesse and seemed pre packaged.

    Although limited number of floors, the elevator in the new building was great for sore knees. Woman/women friendly. (My partner would go there alone) Good fire doors. Great lights on sensors Excellent parking.

    Limited menu in restaurant. Breakfast room atmosphere needs work to make it more intimate. (Screens to subdivide?) Need new toaster!

    Well located and convenient

    Breakfast in characterless function room when there was an unused bar dining area that would have been much more in character.

    Location was great -- nice room - friendly staff - reasonable price. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Breakfast at the hotel was excellent, but dinner at the hotel restaurant was a disappointment. It had been reviewed as one of the best in Kirkwall. Food was adequate, service was extremely slow.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable room. The breakfast, especially the mixed grill was very good.

    The menu and food in the bar could be improved. It was a bit old fashioned.
