Welcome and experience a 17th Century hotel where fresh local cuisine meets traditional Orcadian hospitality in the heart of the ancient royal burgh of Kirkwall, Orkney.
Dating back to 1670, the hotel offers every modern convenience, while retaining its original features and charms. Ideally situated in the town centre, the hotel is minutes from the magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral, Bishop’s and Earl’s Palaces and award-winning local jewellery shops. The infamous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Skara Brae, and Maeshowe and the Ring of Brodgar are an easy 25 minutes drive away. We are ten minutes drive from Kirkwall Airport.
