Very welcoming check-in with Scott, who was also a lot of fun at the bar! Room was spacious and had everything we needed to enjoy exploring Orkney. Breakfast was so much food and wonderful service both mornings. We had dinner at the sister inn Ferry Inn and enjoyed owner Gareth's service numerous times as he seems to be everywhere! All around cheerful hospitality and a lot of laughs in our stay, making Royal Hotel a fun part of our Orkney experience!

Pleasurable Stay
Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were excellent. Our room was Ok but the shower in the bathroom was poor and let the room down. We had an enjoyable stay in Orkney. There is only limited parking outside the hotel so used nearby longstay parking. It is a pity that the hotel does not provide food in the evenings but the food at the sister hotel "The Ferry Inn " was good to excellent. We would stay again.

Charming little hotel in Stromness. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating. The breakfast each morning was a huge plus before we set off to explore. Unfortunately for our family we booked during Shopping Week and were expecting a quiet stay, but instead got loud, rowdy nights as the only pub in town is at the hotel. If you are travelling in July make note of Shopping Week dates unless you are there for the party. 😊 Also, not many eating spots are open later at night so plan accordingly!!
