We arrived in Orkney on the car ferry to St. Margaret's Hope, and the Sands Motel is just a few minutes from there. As it was pouring rain, we were happily surprised to enter this recently renovated building and find a modern reception area, a charming and comfortable room with a view to the water, and an attractive restaurant that was still open for dinner. Breakfast the next morning was served in a plant-filled solarium. The whole operation was first-class and a good base for exploring the eastern half of the Orkney Mainland.

Room Tip: Alle kamers hebben zeezicht, maar misschien toch best een kamer vragen die niet boven de pub gelegen...
