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...

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
