Negative Reviews


Poor Wi-Fi service

The comments left by many previous guests all mention how hard it is to get onto the internet. The hotel is in a rural location which may be one of the reasons. Vodafone was also mentioned as being a terrible signal.


Noisy music on a weekend

The bar is situated next to the restaurant which plays music on an evening. Reviews state it iss very noisy up until 1am in the morning on a Saturday night. Those wanting to stay here to relax could ask for a room further away from the bar.


Thin curtains

There is a lot of daylight in the Orkneys even on a night at certain times of the year. Guests who have stayed have mentioned the curtains which are provided are thin letting lots of light into the room making it harder to sleep.
