A good 20 minute walk out of town which wouldn't have been great if it was raining. Others caught a taxi. The house interior was nice but the exterior is not super attractive. The room was small and the bed was two twins pushed together. We didn't have a view. The linen and pillows were good. The bathroom was an... More

The owners were very welcoming and eager to please.Breakfast was substantial and sufficient to see us though the day.Beautiful view across the sea to the islands from the breakfast room left us feeling we must go back to visit some more of the islands

The owners were very hands on but not intrusive. Nothing was too much trouble. The room would have graced a top class hotel. My daughter was supposed to join me with her 10 month old baby for my two nights stay but at the last minute couldn't make it, but on my arrival there, in the room was the cot... More

Recently stayed at the most delightful B and B in Kirkwall, our hosts Sheila and Gerry were very welcoming, warm and friendly. Our room was excellent, comfortable, quiet and beautifully decorated. The en-suite shower room, was again, well decorated and the Orkney shampoo, shower gel and soap a nice touch. The upstairs lounge had the most incredible view over the... More

Spent 3 nights at Hildeval and the owners did everything to make us feel at home, which we did right away. If you are staying in Kirkwall, this is the place for you! Rooms and facilities were quite big, the view from the breakfast room is breathtaking and the owners go out of their way to make you feel at... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hildeval for 2 nights while visiting the Orkney Islands. It’s a wee bit outside of the city center which necessitated our taking a taxi to and from dinner. The cost was about $5.00 US (more on Sunday—I have no idea why). Our room (#1) had a nice queen size bed. The bathroom was... More

We stayed at the Kirkwall Hindeval B&B for two night in May 2015. We booked two rooms: a single and a twin. What a wonderful surprize to discover that the single room (room 1) had a very comfortable KING size bed and the twin room (room 2 right next door to room 1) had a double bed and a twin... More

Very clean and convenient B&B. Quiet location and an easy walk to town. Our spotless room was furnished with twin beds and a private modern bathroom. Breakfast is not just coffee and roll. Guests can choose from a variety of Scottish specialties.

We recently stayed at the Hildeval Bed & Breakfast in Kirkwall and had a very enjoyable stay. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a great en-suite bathroom. The breakfast was delicious with a great selection, including local kippers. Shirley made us feel extremely welcome; we would recommend this to anyone visiting Kirkwall.
