I stayed here for 4 nights 'doing' mainland Orkney and Hoy. Its a very central location just 2 minutes walk downhill to St Magnus Cathedral, the (excellent) Orkney Museum and the Bishop's and Earl's Palaces, plus the main shopping street. You don't need to drive into town. 2 Dundas Crescent is a big old Church of Scotland 'Manse' (or 'rectory'... More

Ruth and Edgar make you very welcome and the room was very nice with a lovely newly fitted bathroom. Felt very at home. The location is brilliant. Just up the hill from the Cathedral and the main shopping street. Reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at this brilliant bed and breakfast for three nights. The location is perfect if you want to be close to the town centre in Kirkwall. We didn't have our own transport so being able to stroll into town for lunch and dinner was great. It is also only a short and inexpensive taxi ride to the airport. The... More

We had a comfortable and pleasant stay at this B & B, which is a short walk from the centre of Kirkwall, and so very convenient if you don’t have your own transport. The room was spacious and well-furnished with furnishings appropriate to the age and style of the house. Retaining the original shutters was a particularly nice feature. A... More

We had an excellent 2 night stay. Ruth and Edgar were fantastic hosts. The breakfast was hearty and good. 2 Dundas has a great old Orkney charm to it. Bedroom was spacious with its own bathroom. Bed was comfortable. Close to everything! We would definitely stay again!!

2 Dundas Crescent is centrally located in Kirkwall, just up from the cathedral, and centrally located on Orkney, in the middle of the mainland. Edgar and Ruth were friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were nice, and clean. I was traveling Scotland for two weeks, and I must say this was the best breakfast I had on the entire... More

Stayed with Ruth and Edgar for 2 nights. Very spacious room with great shower and spotless bathroom - bed very comfortable. Edgar was our main contact and was very chatty with great sense of fun. We were catching an early morning flight at 0730 and he had no problem about giving us a cooked breakfast at 0630. The B&B is... More

This B&B is very convenient location for the centre of Kirkwall and the Travel Centre and it is a lovely building outside and inside. The proprietors are also extremely pleasant, helpful and friendly. Our room looked out to the street at the front of the house and it had an en-suite shower room which was a good size. The bedroom...

We arrived to Kirkwall on the night ferry and were delighted to find such a beautiful and spacious room to rest in. The host were very accomodating even though our arrival was so late at night. The air was chilly but the bed was very warm, thanks to the heating blanket, and we slept like rocks. I absolutely loved the... More
