For a peaceful overnight stay on Kirkwall's historic waterfront, take a room at The Shore. We are delighted to be back open and once again welcoming guests to The Shore. We have made a number of changes to ensure the comfort and safety of residents in line with current social distancing guidelines. As part of this we are operating on a bed and breakfast basis for the foreseeable period, with evening bar service for residents only. Unfortunately our popular restaurant service is temporarily suspended, but we are working with other local businesses to ensure there are dining options for our guests. Should you have any query please contact us. Otherwise click the link below to access the best available room rates, inclusive of complimentary continental breakfast.

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 - excellent dinner and drinks, a great bed and an inclusive breakfast, all delivered with friendly local service.

Book a Room

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. 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.
