Established in 1901, our historic 42 bedroom hotel lies in the heart of the unique fishing port of Stromness, overlooking the working harbour and Scapa Flow. The bedrooms are en-suite with telephones, colour television and tea/coffee making facilities. There is a lift to all floors and car parking is available to guests. Indulge in the charm of a picturesque village harbour view from the bay windows of the Hamnavoe Lounge Bar where award-winning Orkney Ales are available on tap or enjoy a welcoming open fire and warm atmosphere in the splendour of the Flattie Bar. Residents can enjoy a cosy quiet atmosphere in the Still Room with a choice of over one hundred malt whiskies. The a la carte Scapa Flow Restaurant prides itself on using the finest local Orcadian produce - the very best grass-reared beef, fresh fish and succulent shellfish. To the rear of the hotel we have a large beautifully kept Victorian Garden where residents can enjoy a stroll in the evening or a quiet refreshment whilst relaxing in the afternoon. The hotel can also cater for weddings, parties and functions for up to 120 guests or any special event you may require, at very competitive rates. Please contact us for details.

Sarah. I don't know the answer to your question. I would imagine it would be no ( unless guide or hearing dog) I will ask my cousin who works there. Maybe management will see this and clarify with you.
