> Overview

The Royal Hotel enjoys a prominent position in Longhope village overlooking the harbour and bay, with Scapa Flow in the distance. The hotel has 3 well-appointed en-suite letting bedrooms together with a popular bar, 2 dining rooms and a spacious 3 bedroom owners accommodation.

The substantial ‘C’ listed building is in the style of W.R. Lethaby and during World War 1 was the office of the admiral commanding naval operations in Orkney and Shetland. King George V and Edward Prince of Wales slept in the property in 1915.

The hotel may especially appeal to those wishing to enter the tourist business and offered for sale due to the imminent retirement of the owner. The hotel has not offered nightly accommodation in recent years and trade could be increased by reinstating this and by offering lunch and evening meals. The bar is very popular with both locals and visitors as are the takeaway meals offered at the weekends.

There is oil central heating throughout together with several open fireplaces.

The hotel sits in a large garden which includes a patio and lawns. To the rear there is a store and a large garage/workshop.

Longhope is situated at the southern end of the island of Hoy. Its amenities on the island include a primary school, shop and post office. Ferries connect the island with the Orkney mainland.
