My family stayed there for several days. Our host, John Graham, also was our driver/guide for two days of touring (I didn't feel up to other-side driving but in retrospect traffic was light and I might have been able to do it). He was great, very relaxed and funny. The breakfasts were really good, "Full Scots" with eggs and meats... More

A group of five of us stayed here for one night. Margaret and John are warm hosts and gave us lots of info on what to see and do. Excellent breakfast, large comfy rooms, and very clean and large bathrooms!

The reviews. have said all this before.... I can add to the comments already made by saying it's consistently the same high standard. Maybe I will meet... More

We just got home on Monday after 4 nights at Ardconnel. We have absolutely no negative comments to make at all. John and Margaret are really lovely, warm people. They're really helpful and knowledgeable and make you feel really relaxed. Our room was really lovely and comfy and had some great touches like nice choccy biscuits with the tea tray... More

We had the pleasure of staying six nights at Ardconnel. It is the best B&B at which we've ever stayed. John and Margaret gave us a great welcome and were superb hosts, being extremely helpful but not intrusive. The bedroom was beautifully furnished and it was a joy to spend time there. Breakfast was something to look forward to, with... More

We stayed here for two nights. It's location was a great home base for exploring the island - and we did venture to South Ronaldsay one afternoon. Just a quick drive into Kirkwall for dinner, shopping, etc. The breakfasts were excellent, and the room was large, comfortable, and clean. The hosts are friendly and helpful. We would have gladly stayed... More

My wife and I had three wonderful nights here. The location is excellent, the room extremely comfortable, the breakfast was great and John was a wonderful host. He was friendly, very helpful, with a good sense of humour and while willing to chat over breakfast he was not intrusive. I would definitely stay here again if we return to Kirkwall... More

My now fiancé and I visited Orkney from 16-19 June. The B&B was perfect, 15 min walk into Kirkwall and stunning views. The owners are superb, so friendly and welcoming. Each morning John would come in at breakfast and chat with us asking what are plans were and offered so many suggestions of what to see and do. He did... More

Back in January, we’d booked a 3 night stay for the end of May. A few weeks before our arrival, I’d emailed to confirm dates. I’d made a mistake in the confirmation email, the owner queried the dates, I apologised and clarified and thought all was okay. We’d also advised back in January and again in May that we’d be...
