Wonderful breakfasts (porridge, herring, and eggs with salmon) and great hospitality make Miller's a great place to stay if you are visiting the Orkney Islands. Our bedroom under the eaves gave us a wondeful view of the town as well as the light that lasted all night through. Great location to use as a base for a visit to Maes... More

One of the best places I've ever been to - the owners were extremely kind, the house is beautiful and comfortable and the breakfast was simply fantastic. I loved Orkneys, but even if i didn't i'd keep great memories of this B&B.

We stayed for 4 nights at Miller's House during our first visit to Orkney. It is a fascinating and very comfortable house. We had a lovely spacious family room wih ensuite bathroom. Our tea and coffee tray was well provided with a range of teas to choose from and each day there were different homemade cakes which we really enjoyed... More

Miller's House should be used as a training experience for budding bed and breakfast proprietors. It provides a welcoming atmosphere and Mrs Dennison, the hostess bring a lifetimes experience to create a professionally run and visitor friendly environment. It's always a pleasure to see things done well. Mary and I would like to say thanks for a very pleasant stay.... More

What a place, this is by far the best B&B we have stayed in our hosts are so helpful, the room is brilliantly equipped, the breakfast range and standard of food is outstanding. The place has been lovingly restored as it is housed in the oldest building in town and this has been completed to a very high standard. We... More

We spent 4 nights in this lovely B&B and had a really great time. It is homely, comfortable and in an ideal location. The Dennisons are friendly and relaxed and we enjoyed chatting to them. Maureen is a marvellous baker - her shortbread alone could have crowds flocking to Stromness! We would definitely return here if we went to Orkney... More

A really friendly, helpful, comfortable, feel-at-home B&B, but/and the breakfasts concentrate the care and attention into something truly fine. Great smoked haddock cooked to perfection, so you start your day on a note of lipsmacking happiness. The homemade bread and the baked extras changing each day - the scotch pancakes, fatty cutties, cinnamon buns - add that generous spirited extra... More

This was the best B&B of our fortnight's holiday - and the one closest to home! It's just a short walk from the ferry terminal in Stromness which is very convenient of you're on foot. Maureen and Magnus made us most welcome and the accommodation was excellent. The most welcome thing was fresh milk in the fridge in the bedroom... More
