About the Ferry Inn

Situated on the harbourfront in Orkney's gateway port, the Ferry Inn provides an ideal base for business or leisure stays, great all day food and a cracking community bar. The Ferry Inn is also now twinned with The Royal Hotel in Stromness, just 1 minute along the cobbled street. Owned by Karen and Gareth Crichton, who also operate sister hotel The Shore in Kirkwall, The Ferry Inn and Royal Hotel Stromness provide clean, comfortable and ‘connected' rooms for business or holiday stays. Book directly with us through this website for the very best rates.
