Heathery tones and tweedy fabrics bring a breath of fresh Orkney air to this family-owned hotel, in a peaceful area just beyond the city centre. It occupies two recently refurbished Victorian villas – Dunstane House, and Hampton House, opposite. From ‘cosy wee singles and doubles’ to luxurious, high-ceilinged suites, bedrooms are kitted out in heritage style and supplied with pampering Scottish products and home-made shortbread. In Ba’ Bar, find monochrome photographs and a wide selection of rare and vintage craft spirits; in the clubby lounge, velvet armchairs and sofas. A short menu of unfussy modern Scottish dishes is available all day. Buses to the centre and the airport stop right outside. This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain.
