The St Ola Hotel is situated in the heart of Kirkwall on the picturesque waterfront, offering panoramic views of the harbour and Orkney's outer isles.
A few minutes walk brings you to the town centre, our beautiful Cathedral and all local amenities. The outer island ferries depart from the harbour in front of the hotel.
All rooms are en-suite and have free unlimited WIFI internet.
Standard rooms are situated to the rear of the hotel above our popular locals bar and therefore on Friday and Saturday nights it is very possible that these rooms will be noisy until the bar closes at 1am.
RESTAURANT & BAR
The Ola has two bars, each with its distinct character. The front bar is a popular stopping off point for those working nearby or travelling to and from the isles. It has a cosy fire in winter and proudly displays silverware won by some of the local sports clubs we sponsor. It is popular with locals and a venue for folk music. A place to chill out and yarn over a pint.
The recently refurbished back bar is popular during the day for food and especially at weekends. Our menu offers a great range of pub food options, from prime Orkney beef burgers to lighter snacks and sharing platters. Please note, no under 18's allowed in the bar areas.
When evening comes, the lights go down creating a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The 'back bar' is also a lively venue for events and gigs. Local and visiting bands play here and we host regular charity fundraisers and other themed events.
