Dawn and Harold where the best hosts we have experience out side South Africa, they made our stay a home away from home, going the extra mile on all our needs. The B&B is a homely atmosphere with large comfortable rooms and bath rooms. All our meals where restaurant quality but with the homely touch.

A well run and helpful B&B. It is a little way out of Stromness if you are travelling on foot. A wide range of choices were available for breakfast including homemade preserves. The bathroom was spacious as was the guest lounge.Fresh milk was available to guests wishing to make a hot drink. Dawn has great local knowledge.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay, but find it odd that the location didn't suit you. We are only 3/4 of a mile from the town centre we feel this is just enough to walk to town but far enough to be out of the noise of the pubs and loading of the ferry. More

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

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
