Great hosts Margaret and Magnus. Nothing a problem. Lovely Orkney hospitality and a genuine interest in people. Margaret has brilliant stories and it is a treat to hear them told in her lovely melodic accent, almost musical in tone. Warm comfortable room with heating when you want it. Ensuite. Five minute walk to the town centre and bus station. The... More

Comfortable, clean room with ensuite shower room. First class breakfast and extremely hospitable owners. A stones throw away from the hospital which was perfect for our purposes. thank you Margaret and Magnus for your Orcadian hospitality.

We were going to Orkney for 3 nights and were struggling to get accommodation, luckily the lovely Margaret at Bon Accord had a cancellation and juggled around her bookings to let us have a double for the 3 nights we needed. Although the bathroom was not en suite, it was right next door and for our own use. The bath... More

This is an excellent B&B. The room and bathroom was so comfortable and modern. Had an excellent nights sleep in a comfortable bed. The bathroom is modern and large. The house is very clean. The hosts are so friendly, welcoming and warm. There are some narrow stairs to the upstairs rooms, but we left the large suitcases at the bottom... More

I may have only stayed one night, but the room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The hospitality was definitely 5*, as the hosts couldn't do enough for you. The hospitality was outstanding. I would highly recommend this place!!

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...
