Burnside is a beautiful, cosy, spotlessly clean home where Joy, Robbie (and Liz!) make you feel so welcome. The rooms are tastefully decorated with vintage linens on the comfortable, large bed. Homemade shortbread in the cookie jars in the room makes a tasty nibble when you return at the end of the day. Modern showers deliver powerful, hot showers with complimentary toiletries to enjoy. Breakfasts are generous including Joy’s homemade bere bannocks and Orkney cheese ( do try it ..once!). Joy’s local knowledge helps enormously when planning your days out. Parking plentiful and excellent wifi. All in all, a wonderful stay, really hope we’ll get back
Really fab location with stunning views across to Hoy- a great base to explore Orkney. The room was clean, quiet, spacious and had some really lovely extras - the homemade shortbread was delicious! The bathroom felt and looked completely new, the shower was great. The breakfast was lush, easily the best porridge I've had. The breakfast spread was super, Joy and her team take a real pride in what they serve, and it really showed. Joy is an absolute fountain of knowledge, and was more than happy to offer advice as well as provide books/maps to help us throughout our stay. All in all it was a perfect base and I honestly can't wait to book in again- a great welcome to Orkney!
Very good location a bit outside of Stromness, perfect for exploring Orkney. Wonderful view from the room "Hoy view". Excellent breakfast with berries and full Scotish breakfast. Very nice and friendly people who can give many suggestions of interesting places and recommendation for restaurants.
Beautiful location, welcoming host, tasty breakfasts and spacious rooms. All in all a top-notch B & B. Joy was full of information about where to visit and careful of covid restrictions so I felt completely safe when staying.
The property is a short walk from Stromness. Warm, friendly and helpful owner. Excellent breakfast; the best porridge of our 14-day trip. We had the room with a separate bathroom; beautifully appointed, with plenty of hot water.
