We phoned ahead and didn't have any trouble getting a room on a Thursday night in May. The guesthouse was on the main street just up from the ferry so we had no trouble walking there since we left the truck on the mainland. The rooms were Puffin themed, with puffins stenciled on the tiles, curtains, and kitchen cabinets. Quirky bird obsession aside it was clean and comfortable. Ruth is a huge animal lover and it shows throughout the place.
Ruth was so very helpful directing us to places around the island where she had recently seen puffins. We knew it was still early in the season but we set out with a map she gave us in search of birds. The cliffs surrounding the golf course and along the shore were filled with them! We spent the next day walking around the island and even a bit up the volcano for a bit to waste time until the ferry that evening.
There is a little gas station across the street where we had crazy hot dogs and orange soda, our fast food of choice while on vacation. In the morning we used the kitchen to make coffee and self cater our breakfast as it is very well stocked with plates and all the things one expects to find in a home kitchen.
