          The Orca is a nice, clean three-star guesthouse centrally located in Stromness. We didn't need pampering while we were there, and the Orca suited us just fine. Breakfast was excellent. The owner provided just what we needed after a day of cycling and an evening...More

          From slightly sceptical to complete satisfaction. Interesting, pleasant and knowledgeable hostess who accommodated us unexpectedly (too wet for camping) without any fuss. Fine little room with all the basic comforts (lots of teabags and biscuits etc). Undisturbed good night's sleep and a first class full...More

          B&B not hotel. Nothing fancy, but does the job. No problems with room. Friendly host, good bfast. Free Wifi. Good location for ferry and walking around Stromness. No parking. Sound proofing not great. Nice collection of art work
