Having deciding to go to Orkney at short notice we 'googled' accommodation in Orkney and a few popped up and some did not even reply !! The owner Patsy replied and was able to fit us in for 5 days which was good for us. The Bellavista is absolutely 1st class as you have a choice of Breakfast options if you don't want a full Scottish Breakfast every morning we did every 2nd day as it was so good with porridge to die for as they say !! The Jams and Marmalades etc.. are all homemade too !! They also have a lounge with facilities for heating your own food for lunch or dinner and menus for the local take away's if you fancy a night in after a long day's touring and a large fridge for guests use too. The rooms are spotless and have excellent facilities with free Wi-fi with coffee and tea and biscuits for a wee cuppa before bedtime. Owners Patsy and Alan really make you feel at home and we felt like it was our own holiday home ! and a good base for touring the Island ( we were lucky with the weather ) thoroughly recommended.
