Due to a travel mix-up, we ended up spending a night at Foinhaven Bed & Breakfast in Orphir. Our hosts, Margaret and Raymond, were kind enough to allow us to stay with them when we had problems with our previous reservation on Orkney. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfy. The rural setting was peaceful and bucolic.... More

We stayed here for a week on a family holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Margaret and Raymond are brilliant hosts. We had the smallest of the self catering apartments which was perfect for myself, my wife and our 14-year-old daughter. It had a massive one bedroom with double and single bed, big bathroom, a lounge/kitchen with great views and plenty... More

We were dumped rather unceremoniously on Margaret and Raymond by a different accommodation place at the last minute. They were so kind and gracious, and in the end we were able to stay in one of the self-catering units after spending the first night in one of their ensuite B&B rooms. The apartment was very well laid out, well-stocked with... More

This is a guesthouse in Orphir, a short (~15-min drive) from Kirkwall on the Orkney mainland (very practically located for reaching anywhere on the mainland or any island connected to the mainland via causeway), which offers either B&B rooms (on the ground floor, where the hosts live) or self-catering apartments (upper floor). We took one of the latter. It's run... More

Spent 3 nights at Foinhaven. Great facilities, especially the self-contained apartments, which add the extra flexibility. Margaret's breakfast's are to die for and Margaret's and Raymond's friendliness make you feel you are one of the family. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed for 3 nights here while we explored the abundant neolithic and Viking sites around the Mainland island and Rousay. Arrived in the afternoon to a warm welcome from Margaret and Ray and admired the beautiful views over the loch and out to sea. Loads of sheep and cows in surrounding fields which were surprising loud with their moos... More

One of the best b&bs I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Friendly service, brilliant food and breath taking views. Don't be put off by it not being in town, you need a car to see Orkney anyway and this b&b has a view to die for to wake up to. Very reasonable prices , cheaper than the... More

What a place! I've travelled a lot in my life, been in many B&B, and this is by right in my top 5 list. Placed in the countryside we had a room with a wonderful landscape. We liked it as soon as we arrived: spacious rooms, home made cake, everything was right. But the best was still to come: breakfast... More

What a welcome! Our self contained accommodation was better than the description, everything was so well thought through, from the fresh milk and eggs in the frig through to a choice of coffee, instant to plunger. Our family felt so welcome and truly a home away from home. Thank you Margaret and Ray.
