    Stayed here overnight on a short trip to the Islands. A very comfortable and clean hotel with attentive and kind staff. Ate a superb seafood meal in the restaurant. Scallops, salmon finished off with an Orkney steamed pudding. Definitely a recommend!

    Nice hotel, lovely people in a nice location. Really slept well could have something to do will the good food. The hotel is by a working pier, so one morning we were able to select a freshly caught lobster straight off the boat.
