      Best hotel in Kirkwall

      Super clean hotel, friendly staff and luxurious rooms. Would definatley recommend if stating in kirkwall. The town can be noisy at night and although the hotel is central to everything in the town located in a quieter street than the other hotels. Thank goodness as Friday and Saturday nights are lively and the revellers noise would be hard to sleep with.

      Great hotel on ideal location

      Lovely hotel right in the centre of the town. Handy for everything. Rooms myself and colleague stayed in were really smart. Only small issue was that the TV was a little small. Staff were great and food excellent. You will meed to park in council car parks which are close by. They are pay and display but free overnight. Recommended.
