Superb!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Jul 2020
Stayed here just after it reopened due to COVID-19 & couldn’t have chosen a better place. The host couple were so friendly & welcoming, rooms were impeccable & the breakfast top notch! Splendid views across the water & a very peaceful stay. They couldn’t do enough for us & we felt very fortunate to have found this place. Hope to return soon. Highly recommend.

One of the most welcoming guest houses on the planet! Great views, lovely rooms, amazing breakfast and an all round homely feel to the place. The location is perfect to get anywhere on the island and the information we received about Orkney was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt extremely welcomed.

What a pleasant experience! The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and squeaky clean. The host couple is welcoming and cleverly tweaked our breakfast needs, including a takeaway picnic! Personable, helpful, and still provided lots of privacy!

My husband and were lucky enough to have booked ourselves into Button-Ben. May's friendliness and hospitality was outstanding and we enjoyed a laugh with Tony. We were welcomed with cup cakes, meringue and a cup of tea. Our room was delightful with a great view. Breakfast was amazing and presented with care and attention. We felt like we were staying with friends rather than just another guest - thank you. We will definitely stay with May again when we get back to Orkney.

It feel like this is the perfect B and B. The rooms are big, quiet and have a massive bathroom. May is a wonderful host and makes a delicious breakfast. We even got a pack lunch because we were leaving so early for the ferry the next day. It felt like they have thought of everything... qtips, cotton swabs, earplugs, and the homemade treats made it even more special.

We stayed here in September and truly enjoyed it. They are the nicest host you cold find anywhere. On our arrival we were offered tea and special treats as well as each day. Breakfasts were wonderful. While we were there we both got sick and had to stay another day. Luckily they were able to accommodate us. Tonly went out of his way to cancel our ferry at 5 in the morning and arrange for us the next day. They are absolutely the best hosts of all the places we stayed. They really made you feel at home. There puppy Toby is the sweetest dog.
