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.

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

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
