Holland House is a beautiful, well-appointed B&B with comfortable rooms and stunning views. It is well located for Kirkwall, Stromness, the Ring of Brodgar and many other of Orkney's archaeological sites. Fine, that's what you might expect; the difference at this B&B is the host, Jan. The welcome we received from her was so warm and so genuine we felt... More

Our four night stay started badly when a mix up, not of our making, put the two of us in single room with totally inadequate facilities. This flavoured the rest of our stay and may have explained the proprietors reluctance to engage with us. For us breakfast was not up to five star standard. The gardens were lovely but a... More

Management response:

We were very disappointed to receive our first ever negative review. We accept that the mix up with the booking on the first night was our responsibility, again, a first in 11 years of business, but as Jane and Norman accepted the smaller room for one night and received a discount to reflect the inconvenience, we are at a loss...

Beautiful house, lovely rooms with stunning views, friendly caring owners in Jan and John and gorgeous breakfasts, what more could anyone ask for. Holland House is in Harray perfect for touring the west side of Orkney but not far from any part of Orkneys main island

We have been in many B & Bs and we can not find anything but praise for this lovely house and its owners, the bedrooms are exceptional so is the lounge area and breakfast room, the breakfast is superb with a good menu which you order on the morning that you sit down which is unusual now because most B&Bs...

Just completed a 3 night stay on the Orkney mainland in a stylish establishment which lived up to their 5 star rating. From the moment of arrival I was made most welcome - single traveller - to the moment I left at 06:15 to catch a ferry to another island. The single room was a good size with a double... More

Jan is just fantastic and does everything to make you comfortable and welcome. The bedrooms are really well equipped and lack nothing in home comforts. The guest lounge was beautifully furnished and a real fire was lit every evening. Tea etc available on request. Great breakfasts and lovely view over the water. To show the attention to detail given by... More

The room is beautiful and with a great view, equipped with every comfort and tastefully furnished. Breakfast is wonderful, plentiful and well prepared. All this is in addition to the great generosity and kindness of the owner, Jan, who loves her job and does it with passion. Thanks for the wonderful experience. If we return to these beautiful islands, we... More

Holland House has to be one of the best - if not THE best - B&B I've ever stayed in. Jan Stockan and her husband are incredibly welcoming and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and the beds almost impossible to leave, the breakfast choice and quality is second to none, and there is a huge living room with an open...

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
