I spent 4 nights here on a holiday. The hotel has a restaurant, cafe and bar. The staff was friendly, service was very good, breakfasts were delicious! My room was cozy and clean as was the entire hotel.

We went here for lunch and had a veggie burger and chips and a crab sandwich which were both very nice and reasonably priced. You sit in the conservatory which can get busy. Nice range of cakes as well. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Stayed her for one night. The rooms have been recently refurbished, the bathrooms still smell new! Large comfortable rooms with tv and wifi (you'll probably need it, mobile coverage isn't great in Orkney!). The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Hotel is about 15 mins drive from Kirkwell so need a car to get to it. There is a co-op...

Staff friendly and helpful. Room was clean and very comfortable. The on-site restaurant was a great plus. The food is absolutely delicious but the service, while friendly, is very very slow. It may have been that the "season" was over because the serving staff seemed quite inexperienced.

Please don't let the plain exterior and the decor put you off. The staff are great and the food is wonderful. We had a girlie lunch with 7of us, wine, drinks and food all served as we wanted. Staff unintrusive and left us to enjoy our selves without constantly asking "how is everything" ......this was great.

This hotel close to the west coast of Orkney's mainland offers very good accommodation and is located in the middle of many of the pre-historical sites. The rooms was very large, had good sleeping comfort and the bathroom is well-equipped. The breakfast and evening food are of excellent quality - no need to look for any other restaurant when staying...

Just returned from a few days in the Orkneys. Having been to the Smithfield many moons ago, I was somewhat wary of returning but it was such a delight this time. On the whole Orkney hotels/restaurants are quite different from establishments on mainland UK however, they have a character all of their own! We ate in the cafe on two...

We were a party of 5 and all of us were very impressed by the quality of food and the service provided by the young staff in a friendly welcoming venue. The portions are generous and the local produce was superbly cooked and presented. We couldn't fault this restaurant at all and have no hesitation in recommending it to others

Thank Jacques R
