Good Location that’s about it
The hotel is in a great location. Unfortunately the hotel in its self is a bit tired and could do with a make over. The guy at check in was a bit scary.!!

Stromness Stay
Arrived at the hotel and directed to use the car park at rear which is on a steep slope and accessed via very narrow streets. Hotel itself is ok but certainly could do with an upgrade. The hotel wifi which is meant to service all floors couldn't be detected in my room and I had to sit at reception to get an adaquate signal to download my newspaper. About 6.15pm went to book a table for evening meal and this didn't seem a problem for the first member of staff as there were only two us. Second member of staff came over and told us nothing would be available until after 8pm despite the dining room being empty at that time. Went to the Ferry Bar and enjoyed good fare there though. There was a sheet and quilt on the bed too cold with just the sheet and far too hot under the quilt so not a great nights sleep. Buffet self service breakfast in the morning was good with plentiful selection and choice.

Central location, pleasant staff, a little dated
The Stromness Hotel is ideally suited for access to the travel centre, and has great views of the port from the front rooms. While the hotel itself is a little dated, the rooms are sizeable and comfy, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
