"We chose the storehouse as we had read all about it ! This room is amazing with great attention to detail with high end furnishings and fittings even down to the logo towels/bath robes and quaint china for your complimentary tea, coffee. An old saying “you get what you pay for”
Anne from Texas
Superior Room 208
One of our largest superior rooms the "Silver Darlings" named after the herring fishing industry, which was at its peak in Orkney when our building was built in 1880 and used for pork and Herring curing. This gorgeous room on the 2nd floor still has its original beamed ceilings, recycled woodwork and an electric velux window which you can open by remote control from your bed if you wish along with solid oak board flooring. It has been individually designed by Judith Glue to reflect the colours of Orkneys wild seascape and huge skies. Decorated with Bronte Tweed and Velvet furnishings with Eribe Knitwear Interior accessories and an original artwork of the Silver Darlings Herrings painted by Jane Glue- Judith's twin sister hangs above the bed.
With super king size bed available as double or twin and Egyptian cotton bedding, dressing gowns, full length mirror, ironing facilities, long work table with desk chair and USB points ideal for business customers and complimentary coffee, choice of teapigs tea and shortbread with fresh milk on request.
There is also a fantastic en-suite bathroom with an amazing picture of Orkneys glittering seascape above the double ended bath tub and a blue whale sculpture sits on the flag stone sill in the window that has wooden shutters. There is pebble tiling on the wall that makes you feel you are just sitting on an Orkney beach but with the luxuries of underfloor heating, a deep large bath and rainfall shower, mist free light up wall mirror, magnifying mirror and complementory Scottish toiletries.
Sleeps up to two adults and one child if required or if you prefer you can book "Maeshowe" next door for a family and have your own private access to both the "Silver Darlings" and "Maeshowe" rooms.
