When you stand in the garden of our beautiful Orkney Islands Hotel and take a look across the loch, you stand on the edge of one of the world's most beautiful and unique landscapes. The image of this will stay with you forever and as a hotel, Standing Stones is proud to be a part of this.
Overlooking the Loch of Stenness, Standing Stones is one of the most perfect hotels as a starting point for exploring all of Orkney and what it has to offer. Set back from the main Stromness to Kirkwall road, the views overlooking the loch from our hotel are absolutely stunning, from the midsummer sunsets to winter horizons.
From our hotel's beautiful gardens, you can look across to the Loch of Stenness and see the heart of Neolithic Orkney. Recognising its outstanding universal value and heritage, the principal archaeological sites in the area were inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1999. Standing Stones Hotel is just eleven miles from Kirkwall and three miles from Stromness, making us the ideal hotel choice with 17 excellent, well-appointed bedrooms, offering you the comfort and service you are looking for whatever the purpose of your visit to Orkney.
