Stayed here for one night and dinner at the end of August 2011 at the beginning of a long weekend in Orkney, and all subsequent accommodation and eateries we visited had a lot to live up to by comparison. The quality of ingredients for both dinner and breakfast were exceptional, and among some of the best I've had anywhere.
My kipper for breakfast was delicious, and the homemade muesli superb (who would have thought homemade muesli could be so different from shop bought - but it was!). My wife's fruit compote was also something very special for breakfast, as were the sausage and bacon.
Dinner was excellent (and the homemade bread and bannocks a great touch), and our accommodation in room 2 very comfortable, with great views across to the pier (and the lovely sunset was a nice bonus - although can't give the Creel full credit for that!).
General ambience was very nice, and we felt very free to come and go as we please, as well as use the well-placed communal areas. Fresh flowers were also lovely.
All in all, an outstanding establishment - the owners should be very proud of all their hardwork - well done!
