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

Take a trip to Kirkwall, the capital city of Orkney, and stay in an inviting Orkney hotel near Earl’s Palace. After an invigorating breakfast in your comfortable hotel, guesthouse or lodge, step outside and view the historic sites of this beautiful region, such as the Magnus Cathedral and the fortified palaces, which reflect Orkney’s Norse heritage.
The spacious Earl’s Palace sits close to the St Magnus Cathedral and it holds its own in architectural elegance when compared with other sites on the isles. Built around 1606 by Patrick, the Earl of Orkney, who was renowned for his strict rule, the palace is renowned for its massive five metre fireplace. The front façade is impressive, imposing and refined all at the same time.
Bishop William ‘the Old’, a crusader and friend of the Earl Rognvald, is responsible for building this early 12th century architectural masterpiece. The building has two storeys and the lower floor shows some playful touches, such as the alternating red and yellow stone of the palace’s west wall windows.
