Convenient location. Kitchen had all of the amenities necessary, but fridge space was limited and fridges were not clean. Private room was basic, but had everything needed. Only concern was not having staff available earlier in the day for checkin, and when I sent the hostel an email earlierthrough ...

Nice flat with everything you needed including parking. Central but quiet. Very comfortable bed and well appointed flat.
Hotel was central to all Kirkwall attractions. Parking at the weekend was relatively close to hotel. Our room was well equipped and very comfortable, easy to warm up quickly after a day out in cold, wet weather.
An excellent apartment. Located just a minute from the main street, it is finished to a very high standard and equipped with everything you would need. It was spotlessly clean and it was warm & cosy. I stayed here myself but there is plenty of room for a couple. There is a residents car park that ...
Didn’t get there till gone 11pm off the ferry on a windy February night. Welcoming staff, nice bar area and a warm clean room. Hotel overlooking the harbour. Would definitely recommend
Helpful. Well organised. Good breakfast. Shower and bathroom fittings badly designed. Instant hot water shower dangerous and barely wets you.
Founded in the middle ages, the town of Kirkwall sits at the centre point of the Mainland and is considered to be the capital of the archipelago. The old town has a deep Norse influence, and from this centre a lively town has grown, with lots of independent shops, bars and restaurants for visitors looking for places to explore or eat.
Explore the nave of St. Magnus Cathedral, and then wander through the ruins of the Bishop’s Palace, built in the 12th century and constructed to house the Bishop and his retinue. This palace has a fascinating history and has seen many changes, with its ruin in 1320, and then a restoration effort in 1540 by King James V. Though the palace never fully recovered, it is still considered one of the finest examples of Scottish architecture.
The capital has ample access points for visitors to its shores, as you can reach the island by ferry, bus or plane. This makes Kirkwall an ideal jumping off point for travellers looking to indulge in a little island hopping.
