We loved The Storehouse. The ambiance is good with an open plan kitchen.

We had steaks, chickpea curry and chicken.
The vegetables were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the red cabbage. Wine selection was good too.

Service was good and would return on next visit.

Like everywhere good on Orkney book a few days ahead.

Great place for seafood. We had the trio of fish, cooked to perfection!Service was friendly and efficient but without feeling rushed.
The building has been beautifully converted with the right balance of modern and traditional (beautiful Orkney chairs by the log burner!)

Room tip: Book ahead as this is a very popular place

Stayed 4 nights, had dinner on two nights. Accommodation is excellent. Comfortable beds, great shower and luxury deep bath. Lovely toiletries to ease away the aches of busy days sightseeing. Great location at the heart of Kirkwall. We were worried by the lack of parking but it was never an issue and always managed to park close by. Breakfast and dinners were excellent. Particularly recommend the smoothies and the scallops. Like the fact they supply fresh milk rather than UHT, that sums up their attention to detail. Service in the restaurant and of the rooms was exemplary, no mean feat given the staffing shortages in hospitality. Definitely recommend.

Room tip: We were in 104. Great size.

The rooms are cozy and spacious with heated wooden floorboards in the bathroom which was great for winter. There is even an elevator servicing the first and second floors where the rooms are located. Bed is super comfortable, room has wifi and tea making facilities as well as delicious short bread biscuits. Location is a minute walk to the main shopping street and also the St. Magnus church as well as the harbour. The restaurant on the ground floor serves a fabulous dinner and is mostly almost full, testimony to the good food and service. While we were there, the restaurant served a small plates menu and the scallops were great. Bar is well stocked with an array of Orkney beers, gin and whiskies. The is a photograph of Wills and Kate having dined there on display in the restaurant. We had the good fortune of meeting the owners David and Judith who grew up in Orkney and they always have time for a chat if you happen to meet them. They were kind enough to tell us the history of the storehouse before the transition into this great restaurant and hotel. Memorabilia from back then can be seen around the restaurant My wife and I intended to stay here for 3 nights before moving to another accomodation but have decided instead to extend our stay here due to the comforts and location of this hotel. If its good enough for royalty its good enough for us!

The renovation from an old print workshop is very tastefully done. There is real character in the design and layout. Old industrial fittings are preserved, with rugged stone, fresh paint and very important, a cosy and welcoming feel. Particularly if the outside water is playing up. We met Judith Glue, the owner and local entrepreneur a number of times and she was helpful and friendly to fault.

It is good to have Kirkwall's best restaurant in the ground floor. The seafood and shell fish choices from the menu can be recommended in particular. This was a very comfortable stay. I deeply enjoyed wandering around the town and exploring the nearby neolithic monuments. I have no idea why it has taken half a life time to get to Orkney. The perceived lack of characterful places to stay may have been part of the delay. No need to worry on that account any more. I'd happily return to the Storehouse for another extended Orkney stay.
