We have stayed in many B&Bs over many years and Asgard is amongst the most memorable because of the attention to anticipating every want and need of travellers. The room was spotless, bright, spacious enough, bed v. comfortable. Good shower, toiletries, robes. Hosts Dawn and Harald were friendly and relaxed, yet professional and obviously 'foodies' as breakfast was excellent with... More

I visited Orkney for the first time and was extremely glad that I chose to say with Dawn and Harald at Asgard. The house is beautiful and the rooms (I had two different rooms during my stay) were carefully designed to include everything a visitor might need--comfortable beds, plenty of covers for chilly weather, and well-appointed bathrooms. Each evening, I... More

Recently visited Orkney for the first time, and enjoyed staying here for three nights. Great welcome, helpful hosts, lovely food. Packed breakfast supplied for early ferry crossing kept us going all day! And just loved the home-made cheese. Thank you for having us!

Fantastic place, far enough out of Stromness to be quiet & near enough to stagger back after a good night in the Ferry. Spotless, great breakfast & friendly hosts really make a body feel welcome. I'll have no problem re-booking the next time I'm up there.

Booked this as a last minute scramble for accommodation, it had a few good trip advisor reviews but I wished I read them more closely. Though it is conveniently located, and i was overall satisfied, I felt that the price for what I received was rather steep, and the proprietors weren't always the friendliest and most welcoming. Pros Very well... More

Thank you for your review, If we came across as unfriendly, I'm very sorry ,we don't make a habit of inviting people into our home then be rude or unfriendly. no guests cant control the central heating form the room, as this is our home we have domestic heating which has partial control when the boiler is on. We do... More

This is a family run business which I must say was a quirky - it is not for the corporate traveller (so go enjoy Premier Inn on the main land) - but a very enjoyable experience. Our hosts were charming and helpful, and the breakfast was really really tasty. Very convenient for Stromness and more preferable than the large, somewhat... More

We stayed here recently. Here are the facts:- Whilst the location is only 10 minutes on foot from Stromness ferry and the bedrooms, beds, bathrooms, lounge and house generally are very comfy, clean and cosy, sadly the service was good on a very few occasions, but mostly extremely unfriendly, blunt and unwelcoming. As such, we felt unwanted, uncomfortable and unhappy... More

The information book not booklet in the room, includes what to do in case of a fire, wi-fi address and a bit about the dogs. And suggestions on where to go and what to see These people knew they were too late for the ferry but waited until it had docked in Stromness to phone. They did not cancel the... More

Dawn and Harald were great and generous hosts and had all the local knowledge you might need . Breakfasts were absolutely delicious including wonderful homemade marmalades. The standards of comfort and cleanliness were excellent with lovely touches like fresh cut flowers in the rooms. We stayed for 7 nights and found it the perfect base from which to explore the...

We stayed a this property while in Stromness and it was a gem The hosts Dawn and Harald could not do enough for us. The bedroom was like a 5 star hotel with all the little extras. The breakfasts were fantastic. We will certainly stay here again if in the area

What more can I say? After reading the other reviews I find that everything I want to say about this wonderful Bed & Breakfast has already been said. Though no-one else seems to have mentioned the extra (and much appreciated) little touch of a carafe of water (with glass) at the side of the bed, just like home (though in... More
