We discovered Roeberry House on tripadvisor, and were looking for somewhere special for our mini honeymoon in Orkney. We found it! We live in New York, and contacted Dagmar by email. She responded immediately and right from the word go was helpful and courteous. As others have said on this site, Dagmar really does welcome her guests into her home and family, and goes out of her way to accommodate needs. She kindly picked us up from the St Margaret's Hope ferry, and even took us to Kirkwall the next day to pick up our hire car. She made sure we had an absolutely beautiful en suite room with a king size bed and stunning views over Scapa Flow. She even left us a congratulatory wedding gift for us in our room! The house is beautiful, and it is very nice to have use of various different public rooms. The view from the conservatory is stunning. There is a billiard table, and we had fun playing a game. We thoroughly enjoyed the full Scottish breakfasts, and Dagmar is incredbily flexible about when she serves them. We were quite tired after our wedding celebrations, and Roeberry House was an ideal relaxing place to have our honeymoon. We would recommend Roeberry House to any honeymooning couples! Dagmar will truly make you feel at home.
