My friend and I spent two days here on a cycling holiday touring the Orkneys and Shetlands in May 2015. Arriving quite late, we were greeted by the friendly owners and shown to a nice & comfortable large twin room. The B&B was very clean and the owners couldn't do enough for us. They were very helpful and suggested a... More

Listed as The Old Manse 2 Dundas Crescent. Ruth and Edgar are the Hosts - what a wonderful couple gave us a warm Orcadian Welcome. We had a very pleasant two night stay. The B & B is located just up the street from the ruins of Earl's Palace and St Magnus Cathedral. We had a very nice large room,... More

Comfortable beds, great breakfasts, central location, friendly owners, safe car parking. Ruth and Edgar will look after you and give lots of advice to make your Orkney stay enjoyable. We visited for six nights and look forward to returning.

Sunday's Crescent was a lovely place to stay. Rooms spick and span, quality fixtures and fittings, and comfortable beds. Breakfast freshly cooked, totally delicious and satisfying. Lots of useful information provided and very welcoming hosts, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money, We hope to visit again.

Clean room best feature is when you walk in and see the sunshine coming through the two large windows and additional light coming through a side window. Hot or cold breakfast and the home owners only appear briefly in the morning when you have had your breakfast. One I wish is the ability to just have a chat with the... More

My wife and I, and three friends, stayed 6 nights at Two Dundas Crescent, and loved the place. It is so very conveniently located to St Magnus Cathedral, the harbor, and restaurants and shops. The owners are delightful folks, and the breakfasts are made to order and superb. Edgar will keep you in stitches with his tales, and Ruth, well,... More

Arriving after 11pm off the ferry from Shetland, we were greeted warmly and shown quietly upstairs to one of the most beautiful bedrooms I have ever slept in. Large, with high ceilings, wooden panelling and shutters, a big super-comfortable bed and immaculate shower room. In the morning we opened the shutters to find light streaming in through several large windows.... More

One of the best B and B's we have stayed in, and situated in an excellent position near the centre of the town. The room was large, light and airy. What a joy to sleep in a large comfortable bed too. We stayed 5 nights and the towels were changed every other day- such luxury! Our hosts, Ruth and Edgar... More

Cannot complain about our recent stay in any way.Warmly welcomed - even though late at night - comfortable, clean beds, excellent shower, ample storage space. Breakfast was excellent, some of the best bacon I have had in years and eggs fried as they should be. Very central location. The owners were a delightful couple who deserve all the plaudits given...
