Good B&B, clean and friendly.
Very welcoming and friendly manager / staff. Clean rooms and very comfortable bed and chairs. Shower was poor (luke warm water which could not be adjusted with poor water flow). Breakfast was acceptable (cereal, toast, boiled egg - not full English). Beautiful outlook across to Hoy with small ferry terminal serving Hoy and Flotta close by. Not inconvenienced by ferry, noise or traffic using it. Excellent position for visiting the ‘mainland’ including Kirkwall and Stromness. A car is a must although it is possible to get around by bus.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Clean and tidy
We were satisfied with the accommodation, apart from the handbasin being in the room rather than the ensuite. Breakfast very good but available only from 8:15 to 8:45 am. No bar nor any food at other times. Reception only staffed in early morning .More like a B&B than an hotel. Very convenient for the ferry to Hoy.
