We had a restful enjoyable three nights at Holland House. Jan made us feel very welcome and it was a wonderful base from which to visit the Western Mainland and Hoy. Only drawback was limited good dining in the vicinity. One night we even took wine and cold cuts back to the House so that we didn't need to drive... More

Three nights at Holland House from June 18 2014 and a real home from home. Wonderful hostess (Jan) excellent breakfasts and elegant and tasteful surroundings. Don't book another B&B on Orkney until you've checked HH for availability - it's the best

Its difficult to think that anywhere in orkney could surpass the standards set by Holland House. Jan is an excellent and unobtrusive host who gave us such a warm welcome into her home and made our visit to those beautiful islands one to remember.

This is a wonderful house and a great place to stay. Breakfasts are very tasty with lots of options. The living room was very cosy with the real fire and refreshments offered were a good way to spend an evening. Jan was very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are of high quality and the beds were super comfy. I would... More

Our second stay at this wonderful b&b did not disappoint. In the course of the intervening years, Holland House has obviously managed to keep up its exceptionally high standards - its charming bedrooms as comfortable and beautiful, its breakfast as delicious, and the welcome from Jan and John as warm as 8 years ago! When the sun is out, there... More

We stayed four nights on a visit to the Shetlands and the Orkneys in Aug 2013 having arrived via Canada and Norway. We are not inexperienced with a wide range of accommodations including B&B's, and, like the weather, experiences can be variable in all types of lodging. Having said this, our experiences at Holland House were entirely positive and thoroughly... More
