Fairhaven B&B
Ranked #8 of 26 Kirkwall B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This B & B is highly recommended! Elspeth is very friendly, helpful and always ready for a nice chat about life on Orkney. The breakfast was very tasty and rich. The room was very cozy and clean, short, everything you need on holiday! Coffee and tea, and do not forget the cookies are a nice plus. The B & B is 15 minutes' walk from Kirkwall center, making it very quiet to sleep. There is also a corner where all folders are provided with information on Orkney.
It was a very nice and relaxing holiday, so Elspeth, thank you!

In the wonderland of Orkney Islands you can find a lovely B&B close to the center of Kirkwall.
The breakfast is very abundant and the bedroom is very clean.
Elspeth was really helpful with us: she prepared our breakfast until 7 a.m.
In the B&B there is a corner full of folders about Orkneys attractions... take a look!

Stayed at the Fairhaven on a recent business trip. Elspeth made me feel very welcome, she even made me a packed lunch for my very early morning journey to Westray, which was very kind of her. My room was en-suite and was very clean and tidy, with a comfortable bed, tv, tea/coffee making facilities....virtually home from home. The Fairhaven is just outside of town, but not too far from it and I had a great nights sleep due to its peaceful location. Would definately stay again.

Excellent hospitality. Wonderful Breakfasts and Enjoyable conversations about Orkney and its environs. Elspeth even took the trouble to supply us with packed lunches (when we declined breakfast!). I especially enjoyed the various cakes she baked for us! The rooms were very private and in pristine condition. All queries and questions were politely answered. We would have no hesitation in going back and will do so soon.
