This luxury B&B is the perfect place to stay when visiting Orkney. Our nicely appointed room had a lovely view across the loch towards the Ring of Brodgar. The facilities were good and the great Scottish breakfast was the perfect start to a day before setting off to explore the glorious countryside and fascinating history of this beautiful island.

A wonderful welcome awaits you at this luxury bed and breakfast. Great location just outside Kirkwall which is good for visiting all the local attractions. You are made to feel at home from the moment you arrive. Home baking always offered along with teas and coffee. Jan has wonderful ideas on how to plan your visit no matter how long... More

This was just the loveliest place to stay on Orkney. Excellent accommodation and hospitality, which exceeded expectations. Just faultless really. Every one of the five stars are well deserved. My husband and I have travelled the world and stopped in some lovely hotels but this far nicer because of the personal service. The 'Harray' room is exceptionally comfortable; the breakfasts...

During our short visit on Orkney we stayed two nights in Holland House. And it felt a bit like a time travel back into the days when you did not have smart phones and iPads and constant need for free WiFi everywhere. We stayed in the Harray room. A bright airy room with a comfy double and an en-suite that... More

This was a wonderful experience. Holland House is a beautiful house with all the amenities, beautiful grounds, good food and great location complete with a gracious and helpful hostess Jan. I would recommend the Holland House as a must part of staying in the Orkney Islands.

We had a wonderful stay here. The house is lovely and beautifully furnished, and every time we came in, we were treated to tea and cakes by the fire in the pretty guest sitting room. The breakfasts were also fabulous, as were the views from our large and comfortable room. Jan was extremely helpful and welcoming, too. We left feeling... More

Very comfortable bed, cosy fireplace in the lounge, super clean, nice thoughtful touches like free bottles of water in the room and some local tipple to warm up in the evening. My husband even managed to catch up on some sport, as there is Sky TV in the room.Fantastic breakfast and a wonderful, super helpful host. We felt very comfortable... More

Our second visit to Holland House and again thoroughly enjoyed Jan & John's exceptional hospitality. Twin bedroom this time, which was smaller than the double we had used before, but both have exactly the same high level of comfort, the twin room having the bonus of a shower cabinet. Delighted to enjoy Jan's poached rhubarb with yoghurt at breakfast once... More

Round of applause for the lovely Jan and her B&B. Absolutely no doubt that this is 5 star. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The guest facilities were excellent. The WiFi worked well and breakfast was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for Jan and her husband to help make our stay an enjoyable one. We will be back!!... More
