Orkney trip
The hotel is ideally located for exploring Orkney with access to all the main sites. The breakfast ingredients could be a little better quality and I couldn't get a steak for my dinner either night of our stay but these are minor quibbles. Staff were great friendly and helpful.

Great place
Very pretty room with a good view and very comfortable. Breakfast was perfect-great choice, really fresh fruit with Greek yoghurt then well-cooked quality bacon, egg, etc. A really great place.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! We received a warm welcome from all staff in the hotel, cafe, pub and restaurant. The Smithfield arms has it all! Food from breakfast to lunch In the cafe and dinner in the restaurant was impeccably made and presented and tasted delicious. The scones are incredible! The rooms are modern and comfortable. Given tea, coffee, hot chocolate and some amazing biscuits! Plenty of storage for clothing and space to relax in the room. The whole place was incredibly clean and fresh. Located in a great place in the middle of the two main towns in Orkney with the best staff ever! Massive thankyou to ivy, Ingrid and the rest of the amazing staff! We will definitely be returning. Lots of Love - The honeymoon couple :)
