Everything you'd wish for in a B&B - spotless bedroom, multi-choice hot drinks & biscuits in room, plenty cupboard space, comfy matress, powerful shower and thoughtful toiletries. The breakfast was varied and plentiful and hostess and staff friendly and informative. Great base for seeing Orkney.

Had a lovely 4 night stay here with my parents and sister while visiting my uncle last weekend. My sister and I shared a double room which was fully equipped with absolutely everything. TV, wifi, all things you may have forgotten such as a comb, shower cap etc, biscuits and tea etc. The rooms were really clean and tidy, everything... More

Spent an enjoyable few days in Orkney, ideally placed accomodation for getting the last boat to St Margaret's Hope, accomodation spotlessly clean, breakfast even better with wide selection and many thanks to our hosts, many thanks.

Nicely located property, especially if you have come in on the Gill's Bay crossing. We took in the Italian chapel on the way and came across the Churchill Barriers. Fantastic views. Friendly welcome. Comfortable bed. Good sleep. Lovely breakfast that will set you up for the day beautifully.

We have just spent two nights here at the Inn Guest House whilst visiting Orkney, Shona and Mike were really helpful and so pleasant. Our room was spotlessly clean and breakfast had a fabulous choice with lovely ingredients. Would really recommend, comfy beds and nothing seemed too much trouble.

Shona and Mike proved the perfect hosts, offering a great welcome, local knowledge and nice touches such as a bowl of sweets in the communal TV/sitting room. Breakfasts were as good as any I've had in a B&B, with a wide selection on the menu, everything beautifully cooked to order and monster portions. The bedroom was not large (room to... More

I stayed for a night at the B&B and I found the room to be warm, clean and comfortable. The service has been spot-on and the overall location, although maybe less glamorous when compared to other places in Orkney, still very suggestive. From my room I had a clear view of Lamb Holm and the Italian Chapel.

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.
