“Freshly refurbished and renamed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

We stayed at this guest house for b & b for 3 nights. It has recently been refurbished and renamed and the proprietors,Albert and Aileen, could not have been more welcoming and helpful.We wish them good luck with their new venture, they have certainly made an excellent start.The breakfasts were very good (especially the fresh fruit salad) and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Our ground floor room had a spacious wet room which would be ideal for anybody who was disabled. The guest house is only a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Kirkwall.
