      Room was very big with all facilities working. Shower especially was very good

      Some noise from the main road but was very quiet during the night

      This is an old fashioned hotel which is at the value end of the spectrum. The hotel is pretty 60's with rather old fashioned bathroom and tiny shower. I found the staff were very friendly and worked hard at keeping their clients happy.

      Given the price of the room, the facilities were okay.

      Friendly helpful staff. I was visiting friends and the location was perfect for me.

      Hand held shower only available. Corridors to rooms very narrow,. Room very hot but unable to open windows as they seemed locked which I considered a fire hazard.

      Centrally located. Value for money. Bar food good. Large & comfortable bed.

      Bathroom not maintained - shower thermostat faulty & very hot, dripping taps. No toilet roll & none forthcoming after a request?! Breakfast - probably good if early - not so when under lights for a couple of hours.

      This hotel was excellent value for money.

      The town seemed to have nothing in it, and although I ate in the hotel and the meal was nice, there really was not any other choice. Staff also seemed to have far too much to do, and were rushing around everywhere. From checking in, to ordering a meal, to check out in the morning, I always had to look around the hotel for a member of staff as their was never anyone where you would expect to find them; (but they were very nice and helpful when you found them.)

      For just £25 I can't complain! The hotel is a typical example of its type - an old coaching inn that has been extended some time in the last 30 years and serves as a sort of social centre for the town. A bit rundown and do not expect 5* luxury - but everything worked, the kingsize bed was comfortable and the room was warm. Highlight was the huge carvery meal (I arrived after the official restaurant closing time but the manager nipped into the kitchen and plated up a very tasty selection of meats and proper veggies). In the morning - I needed some water for my "camelback" - so I got invited into the kitchen - spotless and well organised (I am a trained food handler). Ideally located for the Gills Bay ferry - just 15 minutes drive along the coast.

      Just minor - getting attention in reception took a while - but I was one of only 3 guests so reception was unmanned. The senior staff are great - the junior staff are small town teenagers - be understanding!

      The room was so clean, food great as well. Very impressive

      The only fault I have would be that no one was at the front desk, and after repeeated trys at ringing bell for service,, had to go looking for someone to check in.

      Proximity with ferries to orkney islands, good parking place

      Overall it presents old and does not give an impression of freshness
