Just spent 3 nights at 2 Dundas Crescent and thoroughly enjoyed it. A lovely old Manse with a homely feel. beautiful big bedroom, extremely comfortable beds and excellent breakfasts. Edwin and Ruth made us very welcome and the house is only a few minutes walk away from the centre of Kirkwall with a view of Sy Magnus Cathedral from the... More

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

We booked two rooms for two nights with Mrs. Ruth Muir over Easter Break. Booking was dead simple over the phone and Ruth doesn't require a deposit, credit card, or any other nonsense, just your word and decency you'll notify her if your plans change. Inform Ruth of your mode of travel so she'll know when to expect you, especially... More

The location is great, the house is beautiful, and the room was very clean. The owners were very friendly and very helpful as well. Breakfast was included and it was delicious! If visiting Kirkwall, I highly recommend checking out Orkney Uncovered for a private tour of the mainland. You will be amazed by what you'll uncover.

Just back from staying here for two nights for my son's graduation. Ideally located for the ceremony at the Cathedral and town. We had the two double rooms at the front of the house and were surprised at how big they were and my husband adored the claw bath in our room which was a luxury we did not expect!!... More

We've been at this B&B for two nights and I've really liked the atmosphere. It's a 4minutes walk away from kirkwall center (the cathedral) and all the restaurants. We were staying in the twin beds room and it was really spacious, with 3 big windows and a sofa. Tv and wi-fi set that are a bit old, but fully working.... More

I stayed at 2 Dundas Crescent on assignment for a radio station. It was a short walk away from town center, restaurants, sites, and shopping. My room was comfortable and neat, the bathroom was newly renovated and spotless, and the breakfast was delicious. 2 Dundas is a former Manse with high ceilings, beautiful tall windows, and great views of the...
