As featured in The Guardian's "20 of the best UK hotels and inns to rest and relax"
"If relaxation is about getting away from it all, you can’t get much further than this captivating enclave at the far north-western tip of Scotland, where the land runs out and the northern lights put on a show in winter."
Situated close to the famous Smoo Cave, the lodge dates from 1790, but incorporates the earlier 17th century house of Murdo Lowe, an Orkney merchant who traded from the geo (inlet) at Smoo. It is set in nearly two acres, with beautiful dry stone walls enclosing private guest parking, garden areas and with a paddock facing the sea that is set aside for nature.
The lodge has recently been lovingly refurbished throughout and is furnished to a high standard, with every room exquisitely designed & fashionably styled, seamlessly synthesising the unique character and original features of this beautiful stone-built house with contemporary decor & soft furnishings.
A variety of stylish and comfortable rooms are available, all with central heating, en-suite shower or shower & bath facilities, sumptuous Hypnos beds, luxury Egyptian cotton bedding & towels, cosy goose feather down pillows & duvets (hypo-allergenic alternatives available when booking in advance), TV & free WiFi.
There is a spacious yet cosy Guest lounge, complete with wood burning stove, books, magazines, games and hi-fi and original artworks by local artists are displayed throughout the house.
We are passionate about offering our guests delicious and hearty meals, with the emphasis always on quality, variety and healthy eating. The diverse breakfast menu features home-cooked Scottish, Continental & Korean dishes, using locally sourced fresh ingredients where possible. Evening meals can be requested at time of booking (subject to minimum numbers).
Rooms are available from £150/night and we offer discounts for single occupancy and stays of two nights or more. Options include Petite & Classic King size Doubles (with en suite showers rooms), a spacious Superior Twin and our most exclusive Deluxe Super King Double room, both with shower & bath.
House policies - sadly the property is not suitable for children under 12 or pets, and is of course a no-smoking environment - guests are welcome to smoke outside in the garden.
