“superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

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 Caithness and a good centre for visits to the Tomb of the Eagles, Italian Chapel, Churchill Barriers etc.

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 bread all of which made a great start to the holiday.
We were given access to a shed to store bikes and it was ok to have the dog in the apartment.
We also had a meal in the Creel. The food and service was excellent - fresh crab starter and fish main. Certainly lived up to our expectations and would thoroughly recommend the Creel to anyone.
Will no doubt return again in the future.

Room Tip: Only one apartment at rear of owners house. Just a stones throw from the seafront. Very very quiet a...

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 served in our apartment 20 minutes after we came off the ferry. This place has not to be missed we loved it.

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 side of Orkney. There are lovely wood creations of birds and other art forms in the restaurant.

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.
