Lovely warm welcome on arrival late at night. We were asked in advance about dietary requests shortly after booking. Phil had all the information about the area to hand. Room was lovely and warm for us to step into after a 14 hour journey on a cold day in late October. We have one more night to stay here but...

A great visit before we started our trip. Phil had all the local information we needed to prepare for our visit without us having to hunt all over the net for it. From the great late-night welcome from Lynn to a very wonderful breakfast prepared by the both of them our visit was pleasant and had all the bases covered....

Returned having stayed earlier in the year and therefore knowing that it would be exactly as required. Very good base to explore both Stromness as well as Kirkwell. Love the little touches including a flask of fresh iced milk to have with teas/ coffee in room . Will be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lynn and Phil welcome you to HammerSmith. We are situated in the heart of the west Mainland near to the lochs of Harray and Stenness, close to the World Heritage neolithic sites of Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and the Ness of Brodgar. We are on the main road from Birsay to Finstown conveniently close to both Kirkwall (12 miles) and Stromness (10 miles). With the Merkister Hotel only 2 miles and the Smithfield Arms 4 miles away you do not have to go far for a relaxing drink or a meal. Fishermen can take advantage of the hire boats available at the Merkister Hotel which is situated on the shore of Loch Harray. Phil is a registered tour guide so will be able to offer advice on the best areas to see in Orkney ... more   less
