Sea View Room

Classically beautiful...

...and bursting with charm!

Our King Sea View's younger sibling; smaller in sizer but no less stylish. Our Classic Sea View Rooms carry through all the little luxuries and comfort, stunning harbour views and finer rustic details as our King Room, just in a cosier setting. Watch dayboats come in, check out the visiting cruise ships, and catch all the comings and goings of a busy harbour - you'll never tire of it!

If your room is available before 15:00, we’ll let you know. Late check-out is available from £20.00. Please email enquiries@kirkwallhotel.com to arrange.

Dog-friendly stays

We're pretty relaxed when it comes to holidaying with your pooch. We just have a few 'hound' rules we kindly ask you to follow during your stay: 

  • Your four-legged friend is welcome in all areas of the hotel, apart from restaurant and the lounge (unless assistant dogs).
  • If you would like to dine with your pup, meals can be enjoyed in our Highland Park Bar.
  • Our team are armed with doggy treats - we'll always ask before we dish these out!
  • All dog-friendly stays must be pre-booked so that we can make sure you have the best bedroom for your stay. 

We ask just one thing in return: please consider the comfort of other humans, keeping your hound on a lead where necessary and being sure to calm them if they become a bit excited! We understand, we're excited too, but it's always good to be considerate!

Dog-friendly bedrooms need to be pre-booked; a fee of £20.00 per night applies for each pup (2 pups max).

Please call 01856 872232 to book a dog-friendly room.

Families are welcome. Including our Junior Suite, we have a handful of spacious rooms which have additional space for sofa beds and cots (provided, with bedding), These can sleep 2 - 4 guests. Please call to book Family Bedrooms: all our bedrooms are individual and we’ll help you find the best one for your family dynamic.

We also have a scrumptious children’s dinner menu for smaller appetites.
