"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. This gorgeous room on the 2nd floor has original beamed ceilings, recycled woodwork and electric velux windows with oak board flooring. It has been individually designed by Judith Glue and decorated with Bronte Tweed and Velvet furnishings with Eribe Knitwear Interior accessories and original artwork of the Silver Darling Herrings painted by Jane Glue- Judith's twin sister.
With super king size bed available as double or twin and Egyptian cotton bedding, dressing gowns, long work table with desk chair and USB points ideal for business customers and complimentary coffee, teapigs tea and shortbread with fresh milk on request.
There is also a fantastic en-suite bathroom with an amazing picture of Orkneys glittering sea and landscape with a blue whale sitting on the stone sill in the window. 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 and Orkney Soap 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.
