The Hudson Lounge at The Royal is open to one and all and offers a welcoming retreat from a dreich and sodden afternoon. Perfect for folk looking for space to relax and enjoy a glass or two, tea or coffee or a warming dram.
The Hudson is a welcome addition to the hotel’s public areas, set back from the public bar, it is an ideal spot for gatherings, groups, families and friends. The lounge has a warming and restorative feel to it and offers an homage to the history of the relationship between the Hudson Bay Company and the many pioneering Orcadians who crossed to those shores and the Nor’Wast. A wonderful glimpse into this fascinating history can be found trimming the walls.
The lounge offers an extensive range of beers, wines and spirits and many make the pilgrimage for a dram from the rarer bottles of Scapa whisky or a jar of the formidable craft beers on tap rotation from Swannay Brewery. The addition of a small pool table and jukebox ensure that it's a space where all can be entertained.
