We stayed for 3 nights in June. The room was immaculate, with a superb view over the water to the first Churchill Barrier. The breakfasts were incredible - a wide range of cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit salad. The cooked breakfast was fantastic - freshly cooked and of superb quality. A word of warning - if you have a small appetite... More

The Inn is outstanding - spotless and comfortable, and the most staggering cooked breakfasts! Shona's personal touches go above and beyond the run of the mill B&B experience, and we certainly felt warmly welcomed! Highly recommended.

Lovely B&B, arrived late on a Sunday evening and Shona the land lady made me a lovely Toastie as all nearby places to eat were closed. Made to feel very welcome, the rooms are clean and tidy. Situate very close to the "Churchill Barriers", Italian Chapel and Scapa Flo so pleanty to see and with some lovely views. Would definitely... More

The Inn Guest House cannot be faulted. Shona is a friendly land-lady and very welcoming. She noticed that my wife has difficulty climbing stairs, and immediately suggested changing our room from the top floor to the first floor without our even asking. Our room was very clean, comfortable and colour coordinated with lovely views across the Bay of Ayre and... More

i stayed at The Inn duirng a short (3 day / 2 nights) visit to Orkney. The room was immaculate, a twin room with a view over the water. Breakfast was excellent, with a good choice as healthy (or unheathy!) as you could want. A good quite nights sleep, with only the wind outside for company. The location is very... More

This cosy, friendly, clean, B and B, is simply the perfect place to stay when visiting Orkney. The owners can not do enough for you, and have thought of all the wee things that make it feel like home from home. The communal living/dining room has a host of things for you to utilise and the breakfast is so filling,... More

We had a pre-planned set of B+Bs to allow us to tour from Stromness around to South Ronaldsay and from there off by Burwick. St Marys is a really useful place to stop over. Beautiful, quiet village with tranquil views. The B+B was great . We were allowed to put bikes in the outhouse which kept them dry/out of sight.... More

An ideal base from which to explore the main sites. Cosy rooms....as we were two adults and two teenagers we were given adjacent rooms...one double, one twin. Good bathrooms. Clean and well appointed. Fabulous breakfasts. Parking across the road.

Perfect rooms, spotless and clean. Great location and the lady that owns the B&B cant do enough. Such good value for money. We had the room on the top floor looking over the sea, perfect view! We were able to check in really late as our ferry docked at midnight. Great parking and the breakfast is great too. Overall I... More
