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.

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
