  • as it was a bit before Christmas & the town was busy we ended up going to the Centre thinking we'd have lunch there. They had an exstensive menu & we agreed both menu & prices look OK , up we went to ...  more »
  • Not a place to recommend for food. Staff were handling food with bare hands, no customer service skills. Only people at the till, waited patiently, only to be ignored for ages, not even a ‘one moment ...  more »
  • On a day of particularly bad weather we ventured to the Pickaquoy Centre cinema - only one screen but it was clean and comfortable, and we were even able to buy a cup of tea to take in with us to help...  more »

  • Their cafe is brilliant. The staff are wonderful. Most of the time it is a spacious and quiet place to enjoy a coffee. Saturdays are usually busy though. The food there is great. The salads in a tortilla basket are certainly worth a try but in my mind the full breakfast is the best in Orkney, and it's a fantastic deal. The exercise facilities, climbing wall, pool, racket Sports, and various exercise classes are all top notch and it is a great place to get fit or hang out at the health suite. I'm probably biased because I spend loads of time here but it's a fantastic place.
  • Best cinema anywhere in the North of Scotland! Interesting film nights, reasonable prices and great staff.
  • Great swimming pools and cinema and health facilities only thing that prevented it getting 5 stars is the cafe for which the standards have significantly reduced since changing hands.
  • Jungle world is not a patch on what it used to be. Shame really as it could be a brilliant attraction. I feel that the picky centre have laid on the absolute minimum towards jungle world.
  • I was really thinking impressed with this place. The cinema is good with a selection of films available. The swimming pool is excellent, there is a good sized area for younger children as well as a normal deeper pool beside it. The changing facilities were excellent with good sized changing cubicles. Many larger facilities should take note.
