Your beautifully furnished and decorated home made a cosy, perfect base for us for our first visit to Orkney. You made us feel very welcome and relaxed and your local knowledge was a great benefit. Breakfasts were delicious and generous…not sure about the bere bannocks but great to have the chance to try them! Ample parking, great wifi, terrific hot power showers, it was a perfect visit for us. Hopefully ee can return soon.

Probably the best B&B we've ever stayed in. No, hang on - DEFINITELY the best. No exaggeration - we really do mean that. We've stayed here a lot now, which of itself indicates how good we think it is. Joy & Robbie run a gorgeous, comfortable, friendly, relaxing place, with delicious breakfasts and other goodies, and the best views of Stromness it's possible to have. Always a treat to come back here.

This is a perfect base for the whole of the main island - it's a 10 minute walk into the heart of Stromness, but only a 20-minute car drive into Kirkwall, and similar to Birsay. For food, we like: The Ferry Inn (Strom); Foveran (posher, pricier but worth it) in Scapa; and Helgi's, Lucano and the Linnfield in Kirkwall. Further afield, the Skerries (Sth Ronaldsay) is lovely. We'd give other tips too, but actually at any given time, Joy always knows what's going on, and what is/isn't open, so best ask her!

Very warm welcome from Joy and Robbie.Lovely room overlooking Stromness with an easy walk into the town. Very nice bathroom with excellent shower and ample hot water. Most enjoyable breakfast with fresh fruits and freshly cooked option, ably served by Liz.Our hosts were extremely helpful throughout the week. Thankyou.
