    We stayed for 2 nites and the Booking.com price was better. We extended for a second nite and they charged more! Breakfast was ok and dinner (buffet and bar service) was edible but not great. It was convenient for our trip to Orkney.

    Indeed the place was lovely and we really enjoyed the restaurant and pub as well. Food was simply great. A big thank you goes to Pauline who helped me out when I fell, she could not have been kinder. Thank you!
