As a group of 9 (originally 11) mostly 60+ year olds, we thoroughly enjoyed our Orkney holiday and were very pleased we chose the Orca. Doris and Marlene were most accomodating and welcoming and the breakfasts were great and varied. We were free to use the dining room during the day/evening and the spare fridge and washing machine/drier (which we needed after missing the tide slightly at Brough of Birsay!). We thought the price was good and the location in the centre of Stromness couldn't be better. The rooms were all a bit different in size and ours wasn't all that easy to move around in but it didn't matter to us. Not everyone would like the basic b&b set up without modern bedroom furniture etc but I would rather have that than pay a fortune as it was clean and comfortable. Thanks, Doris!
