Welcome to our small country-house hotel, looking northwards over Orkney’s capital, to Kirkwall Bay and the north isles beyond.
We have just ten bedrooms and suites, meaning we can give individual attention to all our guests…unless they want to be left in peace, which is in plentiful supply here. The bedrooms are all spacious and tastefully decorated, furnished with antique beds and complemented by very modern en-suites.
Our wood-panelled lounge provides the ideal space to relax, and if the peat fire and comfy sofas aren’t relaxing enough, choose a soothing dram from our extensive range of malt whiskies – over 360 at last count, including many rare expressions of Highland Park, Britian’s most northerly distillery, and our closest neighbour.
Our dining room offers fine views over Kirkwall, but more importantly food of exceptional quality. Built on a commitment to using the finest local produce – beef, seaweed-fed lamb, fish, shellfish and much more – our talented chef Sam Britten creates dishes that are light, elegant, yet full of flavour. Our 70-bin wine list offers the widest, highest quality choice in Orkney.
