Probably the best Guest House I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Beautiful house with the highest standards of cleanliness. Quality finishes throughout the house. Personnel wee touches like the home baking in our room, beautiful soaps, separate shoe box, excellent breakfast choices. The list goes on. May definitely goes above and beyond. She is so helpful and cheery as is her hubby Tony. We were made to feel very very welcome. Well deserved 4 star rating.

Button-Ben is simply the best B&B we've ever stayed in. We had previously visited in August 2018 for 5 nights (previous review submitted to TripAdvisor) and couldn't wait to go back. We didn't expect to be back so soon, but a certain virus kept us in the UK! Once we realised we were not going to have a holiday outside the UK, we had absolutely no hesitation in returning to Orkney, and with it, another stay with May and Tony in their wonderful B&B.

Everything about it is perfect, from May's hospitality, the extremely spacious rooms, comfy beds, great bathrooms (and showers), amazing breakfasts and the incredible tray bakes. There is a new outdoor seating area (which was being built when we were last here), which offers amazing views over Scapa Flow, towards Stromness, as well as the customary peace and quiet!

I simply couldn't recommend anywhere else to stay when on Orkney Mainland. Book here and you absolutely will not be disappointed

Everything great for an enjoyable stay: room, bed, bathroom and breakfast. Could not wish for any better! Friendly hosts with advice on places of interest. The view on the sea is fantastic. Definitely would come back.

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.
