Situated on the Orkney Island, 14 miles from Kirkwall, Smithfield Hotel offers 3-star accommodation with free parking, a bar, and a restaurant. Kirkwall airport is 30 minutes’ drive away. Everything, The room we stayed in (room 7) was spotlessly clean, had everything you needed. The evening meal and breakfast were absolutely delicious. Lovely fresh, high quality, and cooked to perfection. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this place.
Situated in Twatt, Runa Guest House offers a garden. The guest house features both free WiFi and free private parking. Everything! The host was amazing, took it to a whole new level by taking care and providing vegan options for breakfast for us. The kitchen facilities were even better than most home kitchens and the location, five minute away from the Brought of Birsay (puffins!), is ideal!
Cottiscarth Cottages features garden views, free WiFi and free private parking, located in Finstown, 11 km from Maeshowe. Clean, new and very cosy and comfortable. Everything you need for a wee holiday. The hosts Robbie and Eileen couldn't be more friendly and welcoming, with nothing being too much trouble. The area was beautiful with picturesque views to watch the boats coming and going every day. Orkney is a wonderful place unlike any other and would recommend it to anyone! We will definitely be back to Cottiscarth in the future. We saw lots of beautiful birds and saw the puffins up close on Broch of Birsay with David telling us where to find them. Thanks so much guys, we had a wonderful holiday post lockdown.
Landscapes, ancient sites. Skara Brae astounding as were other Brochs and Stone Circles etc. St Magnus Cathedral also worth a visit as is the Italian Chapel. Excellent restaurants, even at the end of October. (e.g. Helgis, The Storehouse, The Kirkwall Hotel) Excellent range of 'independent' shops. Free Toilets just about everywhere and clean and open!!! Decent roads, we had our car. Would like to (may well) return in a different season particularly to see the birdlife and visit other islands.
Spent most of our time in the west of mainland orkney. Easy to travel around and cars very considerate of cyclists. Excellent meal at Lynnefield Hotel and plenty of whiskies to choose after dinner! Lucky to see an archaeological dig and plenty of interesting sites despite covid closing many of the tombs. Visited Rousay by bicycle on a ferry from Tingwall. Lunch at the Fernvalley tearoom while waiting on a ferry. Only critism is the lack of places to eat other than in Kirkwall and Stromness. We'll be heading back to explore the eastern half of Orkney!
Fabulous history, beautiful views and very friendly folks. The weather (windy with bits of rain) is part of the fun! From one end of the main island to the other is about 30 minutes max. Lots of sites and activities without a lot of travel time.
Every Britain should visit the Orkneys to check out a significant time in their nations heritage. We had a car making it easy to get around and visit historic sites from Earls palace to Tomb of the Eagles
Unspoilt . Great for history and the locals are lovely. Lots to do if you like history and the island (main) is easy to travel. Skara Brae is a must and take a tour as it is very interesting. Vegetarian food was a bit more difficult and beware the chip shops use beef fat but the Chinese in Stromness is well worth a visit if you are vegan/ veggie. We were there for 2 days and it gave us plenty of time to do what we wanted.
Wow! Orkney is beautiful. There’s a strong Viking spirit here. We attended the Summer Solstice ceremony at the Ring of Broghdar which was special. A trip to Kirkwall was great and we were lucky to catch a concert at The Reel. The ferry trip across from Scrabster can be gut-churning if you suffer seasickness (like me). Orkney is a different world.
Very well appointed, nice furnishings, comfortable bed. Everything was very clean and homely. There was a fresh pot of coffee and pastries waiting for my arrival, and even a quiche in the oven. That’s hospitality done right! Jackie was a wonderful host, and the people on the island, just lovely! It’s my first ever trip to the Orkneys and it was well worth taking the trip over to Sanday. It’s my new favourite. I’ll definitely be booking again.
Shona has done an exceptional job in her first self catering effort. The house is warm and welcoming and the updates she has made made the stay even more enjoyable. The house has plenty of room for a couple or a family. A great value in a super location. Will visit again.
Excellent modern apartment, finished to the highest standards. Ideal location in the centre of Kirkwall. I would thoroughly recommend The Loom - when we come back to wonderful Orkney it will be top of our list.
Great location with excellent facilities. It was a real ‘home from home’ for our time in Orkney. Highly recommended.
