The Shore

For a peaceful overnight stay on Kirkwall's historic waterfront, take a room at The Shore.

At the Shore we offer double, twin or single rooms and loft suites. All have en-suite shower rooms. The premier rooms are larger with bright front facing windows. We can also use these as family rooms when required as they have ample space for a fold down bed or cot which we are happy to supply for an additional charge. We also have a larger loft suite with two rooms sharing a bathroom for those looking for a little more space, which can be expanded further by way of a third adjoining room. The loft room in the annex has a compact lounge area on entry. Two smaller single rooms are also available for those travelling or staying on their own and who may be looking for value accommodation.

With 17 en-suite rooms, we provide a haven for those in the islands to work and heaven for those to holiday. We specialise in simple comforts a great bed, good breakfast and a friendly lounge and bar.

Our kitchen prepares fresh cooked to order breakfast for a wonderful start to your day. Our all-you-can eat breakfast with continental buffet and cooked to order mains is included in your room price. Fresh baked bread, pastries, fruits and yoghurts sit alongside our menu of local cheese, meat, egg and fish dishes. With a full range of vegetarian options and catering for special diets on request, there is something for everyone at the start of The Shore's day.

The Shore provides the perfect place for those who enjoy a relaxing glass or two.

Our lounge provides a quiet comfortable haven, light bright and airy through the day and snug at night. Open for breakfast from 7am and with teas, coffee and cake all day, it provides the ideal place to take a break or to unwind at the end of a busy day's work or touring.

The Bar provides a livelier pierside venue with traditional pub service in a contemporary setting, where local folk and visitors blend comfortably in the informal and welcoming atmosphere. The Bar hosts a good selection of local beers, and there's always a quality cask ale on the hand pump, premium spirits - including a fine cross section of Scotland's single malts - and a surprising range of classy cocktails.
