6/10 Good

The room we had booked had no heating on arrival or hot water and even when it was turned on the room was still cold and the bedding felt damp to the touch. The only thing colder than the room was the reception when we complained. We did change rooms and the new room was fantastic but it cost us £60 more. I wouldn't bother with the restaurant which was also cold and they cannot cook steak which at £25 each would have been better on the soles of our boots. We had better rooms on Orkney for half the price.- Disappointing!

It's nice.
Staff friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good. Nicely decorated and furnished. Easy to find and nice location. Easy on-site parking. Bedroom could have been a bit warmer, but i didn't check if that was within our control. I'd recommend this hotel and would happily stay here again.

I had a fantastic 4 nights at the Standing Stones in September 2022. The facilities were perfectly located for a walker like me, near the UNESCO neolithic sites on Mainland. My room was spacious, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The water pressure was great and the hot water plentiful. The staff was very accommodating and helpful given the staffing challenges that they, like so many tourism operators I had visited through the Highlands, were facing. I hope to get back to Orkney (4 nights just wasn't enough) and if I do I will go right back to the Standing Stones.
