4/5 Good

Good location.
The property was clean, spacious and comfortable. The location is very convenient with lovely views. However there isn't a freezer, not even a section in the fridge, so we couldn't freeze the ice packs for the cool box. But apart from that the house is well equiped.
Stayed 5 nights in Sep 2021

A Week in Stromness
overall the property was very good and location was excellent with wonderful views over Stromness and the harbour. Only problem was that there was no dishtowels to dry the plates and cups etc.

5/5 Excellent

Our holiday at Ben Alder
Ben Alder is a modern house located on the outskirts of Stromness. We had 5 adults and 1 child. There are three bedrooms,a bathroom with bath and shower, a well equipped kitchen with a dining area, a utility room with a washing machine and drying facilities and a very comfortable lounge. The views from the cottage are stunning over Stromness to Graemsey and Hoy. We had cars so we were able to get into Stromness easily. Location makes travel on the mainland easy. We had a great holiday and Kerry was very helpful before we traveled and during our stay. Would recommend for a small group or family.

5/5 Excellent

A lovely cottage
A very nice place from which to explore Orkney. If the owners could persuade their neighbours to move the rusting van and car from the field opposite the house it would go from a 5/5 to a 6/5!

5/5 Excellent

Helpful property manager
We booked the property quite late after our previous booking (carried over from last year) was cancelled due to the owner forgetting to carry it over to this year and double booking for the dates we needed. It was a bit further out of Stromness than we had wanted but it didn’t spoil our time there. There was a bit of an issue with the wifi but it was sorted out. The best thing about the property has been the assistance we were given by Kerry when we were caught up in a Covid 19 cluster and couldn’t take the ferry back to the mainland. She found us alternative accommodation and was incredibly helpful. Thank you!
