    Excellent Seafood Restaurant

    A very enjoyable and comfortable 2 night stay at the Murray Arms Hotel. Couldn't be handier for the ferry, and delicious food in their seafood restaurant, good breakfast options too. Free on street parking or in the hotel's own spaces. Very welcoming and helpful staff, will definitely stay here again when we return to Orkney.

    Lovely little hotel!

    A very comfortable bed. Slept like a log! Our room was exactly what we needed. Access to the rear car park was good. The central location in St Margaret's Hope was great. The breakfast in the morning was reduced due to Covid but the options were still good and the food was good. Overall a good little stopover for us!

    riendly

    Friendly welcome and great anti Covid regime. Sadly there was an all night party across the courtyard so sleep was pointless and my packed lunch breakfast never materialised despite assurances

    Thumbs up Murray Arms!!!!

    Jill & I stayed at Murray Arms for 2 nights. From the moment we arrived, our hosts were very friendly & helpful. They were terribly hospitable, obliging with extra milk & also offered to get up early & make a cooked breakfast for us, when we were leaving early to catch the ferry. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again & wished our stay had been longer.

    the property Was Fine, Organisation Poor, They Had To Remove Other Guests From The Room We Had Been Allocated. Breakfast Was Only Done Because They Had To. Some Mornings There Was Very Little On The Plate, There Was Never The Offer Of Any More Than One Cup Of Tea / Coffee. Absolutely No Conversation. Very Poor Compared To The Other Two Hotels On Our Holiday. All Very Much The Same Price. Bottom Line! We Won't Be Recommending It To Friends.

    great hotel, great food

    A nice friendly hotel right on the coast. The best thing about the hotel is the food, probably the best fish I have had for a long time and its caught literally over the road.
