We stayed here for 6 nights. I have never stayed in a B&B before as I have always thought it would be odd to stay in someone's home. I have also never got round to putting in a review before on anywhere that I have stayed. However I have changed both of these habits because of the wonderful experience we... More

Our two nights at Benmora B and B was lovely. It is within easy walking distance of the town. Carolyn made us feel so welcome. I can highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kirkwall. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with en-suites in each one. Coffee and tea was supplied in each room and there was a lounge with... More

I have spent the last 8 months staying at the “Benmora” and I only writing this review as my contract has come to an end and I will not be needing accommodation. The “Benmora” is the jewel in the crown of accommodation on Orkney. 5 star accommodation for 3 star prices. Carolyn makes you more than welcome and nothing is... More

Our Double room overlooking the marina and harbour was clean, warm and comfortable with a top class shower and water pressure excellent. There was bottled water left each day... More

B&B overlooks the harbour, just a short walk to the town and restaurants/pubs. It's also possible to get ferries to other islands, again within walking distance. Benmora is a very clean and comfortable B&B, I've given 5 stars because given the competitive price it's well deserved, it would be hard to find a better B&B for this money. Good points... More

The lounge is very comfortable and has lovely views of the harbour so you can sit and watch the action for hours. The breakfasts offer a really outstanding selection of cut fresh fruit. good porridge, big free range eggs as well as the... More

This is an excellent and well appointed B&B within easy walking distance of the centre of Kirkwall and the Travel Centre. The accommodation is extremely clean, warm, quiet and spacious and it offers great views of the sea and the harbour. Breakfast is exceptionally good with all that anyone could want on offer. The owner is very friendly and welcoming.... More

We stayed here 3 nights and were made very welcome by our hostess. A guest sitting room and the breakfast room overlook the harbour/marina and our room was spacious and the shower was larger than average. As all the amenities of Kirkwall were within 5 to 10 minutes walk away we could leave our car behind. A notepad and pencil... More

Benmora is between five and ten minutes walk of almost anything you're likely to want in Kirkwall and is excellently sited right on the marina. The great views at breakfast also include almost intimidatingly huge breakfasts with choices from healthy to heartstopping. Carolyn is extremely helpful, going out of her way to accommodate people and make sure you have a... More
