This was my first visit to Orkney. A warm welcome, great accommodation, delicious and generous breakfast and very centrally located, including right next to the very impressive cathedral. Nothing is too much trouble. I will definitely use it again.

I travel to Orkney to see a client every couple of months and the first thing I do is call Peter and book in. I arrive off the 11pm ferry and Peter always waits up and welcomes me. The rooms are spotless and the breakfast is to die for. Stanley will keep you entertained and normally will show you his... More

We stayed three nights with Peter and Gemma and their young boys. They could not have been better hosts (including young Stanley who was being Gordon from the fire department while we were there). My friend and I shared a lovely, bright, room, plenty of space and immaculately clean, tastefully decorated in blues in a sort of casual seashore style.... More

Peter was a superb host - warm welcome, neat and tidy room, great breakfast each day and as a local had a great store of local knowledge. This was a great start to our 10 week UK holiday. Superb location - easy 5 minute walk to town, and straight over the road from the cathedral.

This B&B is the kind of place people return to, again and again. Peter and Gemma offer a warm welcome, comfortable beds, tastefully appointed rooms and delicious cooked breakfasts that would be hard to beat. Not only that but the location is ideal - right in town - within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bus station and harbour, and next... More

It's difficult to think of anything more to say.....all the other reviewers have said it all. We've stayed here several times over the last few years and would find it hard to imagine staying anywhere else. It's welcoming, comfortable and well located. And the breakfasts are just perfect. When we stay we always go to church at the Peedie Kirk... More

This is the perfect place to stay in Orkney; great location next to St Magnus Cathedral and 5 minutes walk from the harbour, lovely rooms, comfortable beds and superb breakfasts - the best pork sausages anywhere. Peter and his family are lovely and incredibly helpful, he even gave us a lift to the car hire garage as it was more... More

If ever visiting in Kirkwall, in the Orkney Islands in Scotland, this is the place to stay. Very friendly family - the children are adorable, Stanley loves to play the role of bellboy - the rooms are bright and airy. Good selections for breakfast with reasonable rates, Great location across from St. Magnus cathedral. A definite must for your stay.... More

13 Palace Road is an Edwardian home very close to St Magnus Cathedral. Our room was spacious with ample room to sit and enjoy watching the world go by in Palace Road. Peter apologised for the absence of smoked trout for breakfast but more than made up for it with a superb piece of hot smoked salmon paired with the... More
