Taversoe Hotel is more like a restaurant and bar with rooms than a conventional hotel, although it does offer a residents lounge with superb views and a good library of books and DVDs. At present, there are two double rooms with sea views, which share a bathroom with shower, and a twin room with its own ensuite shower room. Plans are in hand to rebuild the hotel over the winter of 2010-11 to create four rooms, all with ensuite facilities. Meals in the restaurant are excellent (try the succulent Orkney beef steaks and the home-made Orkney fudge cheesecake) and the bar has a full range of Orkney beers and malt whiskies. Carey Maguire runs the hotel virtually single-handed (except for her delightful collie cross-breed, Roo), which gives the Taversoe more of a friendly B&B feeling than anything. The hotel is close to the main Neolithic sites on Rousay, virtually opposite the Trumland RSPB reserve and about two miles from the important Neolithic tomb and Iron Age settlement of Mid Howe.

The Taversoe is fantastically positioned with views across the sea all the way down to Kirkwall. It is a small family run business and the cooking is both very good and extremely good value. The hotel is very small with only 3 letting rooms (2 of which have shared bathroom). The bar is well stocked and regulars to it were very friendly to visitors using it. The guests lounge offers fabulous views across to "mainland" and binoculars are provided for watching birdlife and otters/ seals down on the nearby coast line. Too many people seem to visit Rousay for just the day, given that it is small enough to get around, even on a bike. A longer stay offers great rewards and the Taversoe was a great choice
