Absolutely amazing! The room was beautiful, comfortable and absolutely immaculate. Every detail had been thought of. Our host, John, made us feel very welcome. It was fascinating to learn about the history of the house (which is beautiful), and the breakfast was delicious. The peace and quiet was divine and the location is very convenient for getting everywhere. We were thoroughly spoiled! Will definitely be back!

Fantastic in every way!
This bed & breakfast is absolutely fantastic! The house, steeped in history, dates back to the 16th century. The Queen Mother visited the house for tea back in the 50's. It was an absolute privilege to have stayed there. John & Trish, the owners, are superb hosts, they could not have done anymore to ensure our stay was perfect. Ask John about the house & he'll love to tell you all about its history & its importance to Orkney. Room was very clean as was all the facilities. Breakfast was exceptional. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Certainly stay here again when we return to Orkney.
