A completely unacceptable reservation at the Commodore Chalets in Holm [housekeeping units, isolated--7 miles from Kirkwall, cold] by CheapOstay was rectified by the helpful tourist office in Kirkwall to the Albert Hotel. They were welcoming, warm, clean, breakfast [with a packed breakfast for an early departure], a pleasant bar/eatery and a central location for a person without a car.

I organised a walking party for three days on Orkney . We are sixteen mature males who want comfort but do not need five star. I think we had five star treatment at a three star price . The rooms are refurbished and to a high standard with wet rooms with big shower heads heated towel rails and every modern...

The Albert is a modern but not characterless hotel, well-appointed and perfectly located for Kirkwall town centre. We had a fantastic first floor room, suite-sized with an incredibly comfortable bed and a balcony (worth asking for that one). Didn't eat there, but stayed two days and the breakfast was excellent. Efficient friendly staff and perfectly maintained rooms.

I recently stayed at the hotel and found the room to be modern with the usual facilities. The room was clean and comfortable. The TV reception in the room was poor and kept breaking which is very annoying when trying to relax and watch a programme. The free Wi-fi is absolutely useless , no point in providing it as the...

We stayed at the Albert Hotel over Easter and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The rooms are clean and modern, lovely decor, mattress a little on the soft side but we all slept very well so still very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice, and the shower had good pressure. Our room had a table and a couple of chairs next...

I have stayed twice at this hotel and my key consideration in choosing it the first time was to be central to Kirkwall town centre for ease of access to our Client. The website showed enough for me to be happy with what we would be staying in. What I found was an excellent hotel, modern, comfortable and clean, with...

Although when we arrived they had no record of us having booked ( never book through travel republic) they soon sorted us out a room and were very helpful. The room was well equiped, of a good size and spotlessly clean, (hats off to housekeeping, good job) . We had a meal in the Bothy bar and this was really...

First stay here. Came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. Contemporary decor on the inside. Nice double room with plenty wardrobe space and a decent/very powerful shower. Breakfasts were excellent; especially the Porridge. Ate once there for dinner. Orkney fish cakes were good but the Turbot excellent. Staff extremely friendly and very helpful.

Very pleasant stay here whilst working in Kirkwall. Quick check in by pleasant lady at reception. It was late so quickly shown guest's way into the Bothy bar attached to hotel. I must say the food in the bar was delicious! Reasonably priced I had a special which was Orkney lamb pie topped with black pudding mmm. Saying what time...
