Fodor's Expert Review The Shore

Shore St., Kirkwall, Orkney Islands, KW15 1LG, Scotland

Right on the harbor, this friendly hotel above a pub has surprisingly modern bedrooms, some with chic bathrooms. The minimalist look is a change from most Orcadian inns. Light sleepers should choose one of the rear-facing rooms to avoid street noise. Two bars downstairs serve pub grub, and a restaurant specializes in seafood: come morning, this morphs into the breakfast room and provides a good British fry-up.

PROS

  • clean and well-maintained bedrooms
  • sleek, minimalist decor
  • popular restaurant

CONS

  • pricey for an inn
  • bars can be noisy
  • cars tearing up the main road outside may disturb sleep
