Really nice b & b with off road parking and an easy walk to-from the town centre if you want to have evening meal and a drink. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and really good shower. There is a good choice & plenty of breakfast. Hope to return again soon to these lovely islands.

We were going to Orkney for 3 nights and were struggling to get accommodation, luckily the lovely Margaret at Bon Accord had a cancellation and juggled around her bookings to let us have a double for the 3 nights we needed. Although the bathroom was not en suite, it was right next door and for our own use. The bath... More

I may have only stayed one night, but the room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The hospitality was definitely 5*, as the hosts couldn't do enough for you. The hospitality was outstanding. I would highly recommend this place!!

Wonderful B&B run by hospitable Margaret. Both b's of B&B were excellent and its location is very practical to discover beautiful Orkney. Leaving very early to catch yet another ferry we were pleasantly surprised to find not only the basics of the breakfast waiting for us but also some nice sandwiches for on the road.

This accommodation may only have a 3* listing yet it has 5* food, service and hospitality. We stayed 3 nights and found everything to our perfect satisfaction, very helpful and homely owners, very clean and tidy. A perfect stop for our brief visit to Orkney.
