We had a comfortable and pleasant stay at this B & B, which is a short walk from the centre of Kirkwall, and so very convenient if you don’t have your own transport. The room was spacious and well-furnished with furnishings appropriate to the age and style of the house. Retaining the original shutters was a particularly nice feature. A choice of main courses was offered for breakfast – often not the case in a small establishment – you simply wrote down your preference on a notepad in the dining room the evening before, along with the time you would like it served, and our host Edgar duly delivered it with a cheery smile and a few anecdotes. The quality and quantity of the breakfast provided was excellent. Something about the house made me feel I should be tiptoeing around and only speaking quietly – perhaps it was its history as a manse, as the owners are friendly and welcoming and don’t give that sort of impression at all! Good value for money.
