4/10 Fair

Great location but very dated noisy hotel
Stayed at the hotel Friday Saturday Sunday room allocated(no 1) was over the bar area and overlooking bins and smoking shelter. Friday/Saturday bar open until after one in the morning and was very noisy. I would say the room is not suitable to be used at weekends. The room itself is very dated and dull with badly stained carpet. On the plus side staff were friendly and polite.Sadly won’t be staying here again.

St Olas Kirkwall
Centrally located, with reasonable food. A bit dated, and very expensive, but it was booked in height of season when everyone was staycationing during Covid

We loved this hotel. All the workers were excellent and worked so hard for us. We appreciated all the efforts and the Orkney Islands as one of the most special places to go in the world. St Ola was perfect for us in its unique characteristics and wonderful staff.
