Finding a good place to stay when you are visiting another part of the world can be tricky. Depending on what you intend to do during your stay you may have recommended to you a number of choices. You may want to spend a lot of your time relaxing in the hotels of your choice, you may need some recommended campsites if you are traveling around the area and want to sleep where you stop each day, or you may wish to book yourself into a B&B guest house, such as the one located in Kirkwall on the Orkney islands.
The benefits of staying at the recommended Pomona Guest House when visiting the Orkney Islands are manifold. Firstly, it is right in the centre of Kirkwall, the Orkney Islands Capital City. This allows you access to a number of local attractions and entertainment, as well as all of the best restaurants, pubs and takeaways available on the Orkney Islands. Some of the local hotels, near to Pomona Guest House, serve excellent food, for either a wine and dining experience using some of the local fresh seafood and cuisine produced and sourced from the Orkney Islands themselves, to the more traditional meals at one of the public houses.
Secondly, the Pomonda Guest House is one of the recommended hotels because it is close to all of the local transportation services that allow those who come to the Orkney Islands to explore the archipelago of islands that make up Orkney. Every year thousands of people come to the Orkney Islands for that very reason, and feel that they haven’t really had a true taste of the Orkney Islands unless they have stayed in one of the recommended hotels for a number of days, and travelled around to see as many of the diverse Islands as possible.
Here are just some of the Islands you can visit while staying at one of the recommended hotels in the Orkney Islands.
