Good Hotel Guide Review
‘What a delightful place!’ write regular Guide correspondents this year, of the Doull family’s restaurant-with-rooms. Overlooking Scapa Flow and the southern Orkney isles, it is ‘welcoming and comfortable’, with ‘helpful local staff’. It’s a showcase of all things Orcadian, from the art and craft pieces on display to the bere bunno (a traditional flatbread) baked daily. Showing off, too, the scrumptious strengths of the islands, Paul Doull and Roddy Belford’s short seasonal menus depend on local suppliers for the vegetables, cheese, meat and seafood served in the popular, newly extended restaurant. ‘Our Blue Badge guide told us she’s never been able to eat there as it’s always booked up. And rightly so – the food is delicious, especially the Orkney scallops and the North Ronaldsay mutton.’ Well fed, consider a nightcap by the pellet stove in the lounge (whiskies from local distilleries, of course) before heading to one of the simply furnished bedrooms. Rest well – in the morning, breakfast, with local black pudding and sausages, home-made preserves and traditional Scottish bannocks, is ‘delightful’, too. (Mary and Rodney Milne-Day)
