    St Olas Kirkwall

    Centrally located, with reasonable food. A bit dated, and very expensive, but it was booked in height of season when everyone was staycationing during Covid

    A great place to stay

    The St. Ola Hotel is very convenient with easy access to the harbor and shops in Kirkwall. The staff were friendly and helpful, offering input on the best places to see on the island.

    We loved this hotel. All the workers were excellent and worked so hard for us. We appreciated all the efforts and the Orkney Islands as one of the most special places to go in the world. St Ola was perfect for us in its unique characteristics and wonderful staff.

    Hyggelig på Kirkwall

    Bodde en natt i forbindelse med jobb. Hadde Superior dobbelt rom. Helt OK. Vannkoker med Kaffe og Te på rommet, påfyll av Kaffe, sukker, melk tilgjengelig i gang, veldig bra. Liker en fordrive tiden med å se TV, var det kun mindre skjerm, så glem å se TV fra sengen. Veldig hyggelig personale. Bor gjerne der igjen om jeg skulle behøve overnatting i Kirkwall. Merk, Resepsjon er nattestengt så du får nøkkel til ytterdør sammen med romnøkkel.
