Quirky place in a great location and plenty of free parking. Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times of the day and night. Lift didn’t work so awkward getting suitcase up to top floor. 2 adults and 2 children were more than a little cramped in a family room with 1 double and 1 single bed but thats what we booked so can’t fault that!

Good location in Kirkwall and sea view room was a bonus.
Easy to find and welcoming. Odd that check out was at 10am, it wasn’t highlighted to us and we assumed 11am. Cleaner was banging on doors, but hotel staff ok at checkout that we left at 11am. Rooms ok, and friendly bar staff
