Was there for 3 nights. Service was excellent. Room was warm, comfortable and had all amenities. Shower room warm and we'll provisioned. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of choices and enough to set you up for the whole day. I was on the back with a view over the garden with fish pond and was amused watching the cat trying to... More

Lovely little B&B with sea views. Small but clean and comfortable room with a good range of choices and ample helpings for breakfast served in the conservatory overlooking the bay. Ideal base for exploring South Ronaldsay and the South of Orkney. You can also watch the terns dive for food in the sea as you eat.

Very clean and fresh always stay here when business in Orkney. Rooms are very fresh and have fantastic view over the bay, very very friendly can't do enough for you! 10 out of 10. Breakfast would put most hotels to shame real value for money.

We stayed for four nights and were very pleased with our choice of the Inn Guest house. While it may not look wildly attractive from the outside it is warm and friendly on the inside .... which is what matters. it is well located with south facing views across Holm Sound leading into Scapa Flow. There are excellent en-suite rooms... More

But here is my two penn'orth: I hired a car from the Airport and it took only ten minutes to drive to The Inn - the situation on... More

Rooms are comfortable, clean and well equipped with toiletries, tea, coffee etc. there was even a small jar of sweets which was a nice touch! We had booked a... More

The Inn at St Mary's deserves a 'gem' rating as other TA reviewers have indicated. St Mary's itself is a former fishing village, situated about seven miles from Kirkwall and five miles from St Margaret's Hope, the latter being one of the ferry terminals from Scotland, so the location is good either for those coming by car from the mainland...

Four of us stayed for a long weekend from 14 to 17 May. Our rooms were immaculate and the beds so comfortable. The breakfasts are amazing with a great choice. They kept us going until our evening meal. You are made to feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble.
