Wonderful B&B run by hospitable Margaret. Both b's of B&B were excellent and its location is very practical to discover beautiful Orkney. Leaving very early to catch yet another ferry we were pleasantly surprised to find not only the basics of the breakfast waiting for us but also some nice sandwiches for on the road.

Very hospitable couple who do their utmost to make people feel at home. Very tolerant and nice folks. I would highly recommend Bon Accord to any one visiting The Orkneys. Very good breakfast and nicely done up rooms. Pål, Reidar and Bengt from Norway

This accommodation may only have a 3* listing yet it has 5* food, service and hospitality. We stayed 3 nights and found everything to our perfect satisfaction, very helpful and homely owners, very clean and tidy. A perfect stop for our brief visit to Orkney.

I didn't actually get the chance to stay the night with Margaret because of a bad experience in a B&B in Sandwick,. Just wanted to say that I got Margaret from Bon Accord's number from Orkney Tourism and although she couldn't give me all of the nights I needed she was extremely kind to me and so helpful going out...

My friends have no personal internet access, so the following comments are their own experiances, and I am fully aware that the contents are accurate. My wife has stayed here three times, I twice. It doesn't matter about the era of the decor, the rooms we use (and have seen - including the kitchen) have all been spotlessly clean and,... More

Stayed here for a night after my husband had been admitted to hospital following a fall. I had a comfortable room with exclusive use of adjacent bathroom. Breakfast choice of food was good and more than I could manage to eat. Margaret was a kind and concerned landlady

Most B&B's take breakfasts order the night before this is standard practise in many B&B's. Greeted with a smile fresh linen nice big bed with... More

I am an English teenager who stayed for one week with the Norquay's with my Dad and we both found the couple to be very friendly. The breakfasts are of high quality and the rooms are well maintained. It has a very friendly atmosphere and both Margaret and Magnus are people who would be willing to give up their time... More

I was asked to use this B&B by my customer on Orkney as it is just up the road from their site. I found it to be a very clean and nice B&B with some nice touches. I had the downstairs double bed room with en-suite and it was very comfortable. It had all the normal extras plus a continental... More

Margaret and her husband are lovely hosts, who keep this cute place impeccably clean and make a tasty and generous breakfast. The room we had was cosy and well equipped, nice and airy, with a modern shower, fast wifi, a flat screen TV and a loo that flushes with aplomb. Apparently some people have complained about it lacking modernity, perhaps... More
