We stayed here for two nights and had dinner and breakfast both days. And I want to make clear that the food rated a 5 star, not the accommodation. The food was amazing. The first night I had a crab appetizer. Delicious. The second night my appetizer was mussels, probably the best I have ever had ( and I have... More

A meal with friends who had been before, it lived up to our expectations. Well spaced tables, lovely bread and exceptional food. Wine list very good value for a Londoner! Seafood beautifully cooked, beef superb, nothing to complain about except possibly the price!

Just spent a lovely relaxing 2 days and nights at the Creel in St Margaret's Hope. Views straight out over the bay from our comfortable and spacious room in this waterfront inn followed by delicious local produce in the restaurant at night - what more could you want. A perfect place to stay if you've sailed from Gills Bay in... More

We stayed in the apartment attached to the Creel during the last week of May. Apartment is very nicely fitted out and was very clean on arrival. We were greeted by the owner as soon as we got out of the car and shown around the apartment. There was a welcome pack of local beer and cheese and some local... More

Just spent 3 days at the self catering part of this establishment and cannot rate it highly enough. The facilities are wonderful and fully equipped for a couple or a family. They are tastefully decorated and situated in a lovely setting. Although their award winning restaurant was not yet open for the season we were greeted with a fantastic meal... More

The Creel is a lovely little restaurant with a few rooms. The food in the restaurant is excellent. The view from our room over the day is pure tranquility. There is ample parking immediately infront of The Creel. It is ideal for visiting such places as The Tomb of the Eagles, The Italian Chapel and other attractions on the east... More

Excellent fish and meat dishes with vegetarian options. Superb views over the sea and very tranquil and peaceful. Totally isolated and a retreat from modern society. Thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenating experience. Not to be missed ever.

Stopped at the Creel B&B and if you love food this is a great place to stay. The room was a little dated but very clean. The best part of the room had to be the outstanding view over looking the sea and the Orkneys! The breakfast was very good and very tasty good ole fashioned hearty start to the... More

Had a meal at the Creel with friends to celebrate the end of our wonderful holiday in the Orkneys. Whilst the food was reasonably good, it was far from outstanding. The lobster bisque was tasty but unfortunately, the lobster was not fresh and certainly overcooked. Likewise, the fish mains was also overdone and lacking in aesthetic appeal. Service was efficient... More
