The Creel B&B
Reviewed 9 June 2016

Definitely a cut above most B&Bs! The comfort and style of a very good hotel, but with a much more individual and friendly approach.
This is a lovely old house which is situated right by the sea - we had stunning views from our room (called, appropriately, "Sea"). It is also extremely convenient for the St Margarets Hope ferry, and the village itself is very pleasant - there is an excellent pub, some craft shops etc, and it would be a great base for touring Orkney as well as a ferry stopover.
The room was very large, beautifully and stylishly furnished, and extremely comfortable. Some nice small touches e.g. a fridge, with fresh milk provided. Also very good wifi.
David and his son were extremely friendly and helpful, and very interesting to chat to.
We greatly appreciated being given a really lovely packed breakfast as we were on the early morning ferry.

Room Tip: "Sea" is a lovely room with great views

From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, David and his son saw to our every need, with first class service, food, wine and atmosphere at this fantastic find. David cooked our supper himself, and it surpassed our expectations. The wine was delicious, and the accommodation first class. We were given a truely splendid picnic breakfast to see us on our way as we were leaving early. I very much hope I can stay again at The Creel.

The Creel is a few minutes drive from the St. Margaret's Hope ferry which is perfect if you have had a long day travelling and are ready for a G&T. We received a warm welcome from David and felt at home within minutes. Our room had a view of the harbour which is lovely to wake up to. The breakfast is amazing! Perfect to set you up for the day. I recommend The Creel to anyone looking for a base to explore the Orkney Islands from.

Fabulous view of the bay from our spacious well appointed room.

Service across the board was first class be it laundry, help in charging our electric car in all matters David was a genial host who wanted to help.

We adored the breakfasts, pleasing (to us) not a fry up in sight but fruit/yogurt/honey & the likes of a delicate kedgeree or omelette.
The scallops prepared for one evening meal were truly memorable, on another evening he served excellent monkfish.
Oh & a most interesting wine list.

David has a fund of stories, a singular style & made us most welcome.
(the wifi was top notch too)

Room Tip: ask for view of the bay
