10/10 Exceptional

John the host was very accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully served in the gracious dining hall of this stately home. The most comfortable mattress we have had on a long journey. The secluded park setting was restful.

Rest and Recuperation
It was wonderful. Neither my fiancée nor myself wanted to leave. The piece and quiet was wonderful. The breakfasts were wonderful as was our room. I cannot praise this hotel sufficiently. Whilst the hotel does not do evening meals there are plenty of plaves to eat elsewhere. My hope is that my fiancée and I will return as husband and wife. Certainly a five star rst and and recuperation location.

Absolutely amazing! The room was beautiful, comfortable and absolutely immaculate. Every detail had been thought of. Our host, John, made us feel very welcome. It was fascinating to learn about the history of the house (which is beautiful), and the breakfast was delicious. The peace and quiet was divine and the location is very convenient for getting everywhere. We were thoroughly spoiled! Will definitely be back!

Fantastic in every way!
This bed & breakfast is absolutely fantastic! The house, steeped in history, dates back to the 16th century. The Queen Mother visited the house for tea back in the 50's. It was an absolute privilege to have stayed there. John & Trish, the owners, are superb hosts, they could not have done anymore to ensure our stay was perfect. Ask John about the house & he'll love to tell you all about its history & its importance to Orkney. Room was very clean as was all the facilities. Breakfast was exceptional. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Certainly stay here again when we return to Orkney.

8/10 Very good

Situated further out from everything and hard for us to find . The entrance was a little spare and echoey with no carpet and darkened floor boards . We were taken to the ‘library’ to check in which for us felt quite uncomfortable and less welcoming given a history of the fireplace isn’t really what tired travellers need to know . The ‘library’ would be better served as a community sitting room with tables and chairs rather than 2 Chesterfield couches facing each other in a quiet cold unwelcoming room. We felt we were to stay in our room or go out as the hosts live downstairs- sorry as the host was lovely but we really felt in the way as guests. The breakfast was impeccable and the presentation was 10/10 . I think if it was ‘welcoming’ from the beginning and given a purpose of the library for the guests rather than a showpiece for the host
