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

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.

Inclusive Breakfast

Our kitchen prepares fresh cooked to order breakfast for a wonderful start to your day. By booking direct 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.
