We stayed overnight at Karrawa Guest House and only wished we could have stayed for several days. We asked for triple accommodations for my wife and me plus her sister. They put us in Room 6 at the top of the stairs. The room is spacious and has three beds with two twins and a standard double bed. We could... More

The service was faultless with very pleasant staff. The breakfasts were excellent and generous. The room was spacious and very well maintained. Karrawa was situated a short walk from town which we prefer and was located in a quiet road.

It was a nice and friendly guest house. The only thing I wondered was how to find your house. My plan was to take the bus from the Airport, but I took the taxi so it was no problem to come to you. According to Google map it looked like your house was on road A960, but it wasn't, however... More

Lovely people, clean functioning rooms. We had 2 single beds and a double, had everything we needed; towels, condiments, hair dryer. Breakfast was lovely and you set a time that you want it and choose what you want the night before, very efficient.

The Karrawa Guest House had everything we look for: Great Location, centrally located and many attractions are within walking distance. After a long day of checking out the sites we came back to a comfortable bed complete with a down comforter and pillows. We really enjoyed the new remodel done in the bathroom....great water pressure! Many other special touches the... More

Karrawa Guest House is a very lovely B&B!! The hosts are very friendly. Our room and the breakfast-room was very nice and clean. The variety for breakfast was excellent. It was hard to take a choice! If we ever come back to Orkney Islands we stay there!

We could not have wished for a better place to stay. The room was lovely, bathroom I wished I could have bought it home. Excellent breakfasts. Car parking very good. Cars not squashed together like in most car parks today. Over all very enjoyable

Excellent accommodation - very friendly hosts and very smart facilities. Lots of local info on offer. A ten minute walk into town (uphill on the way back). Good range of breakfast choices - including excellent home made rhubarb jam.
