Hi Lovely Hostess, Warm, friendly, helpful hostess (great cook too!). Beautiful home with a view of the harbour that is in walking distance of all restaurants, shops and scuba/boat rentals. Hostess was kind and packed us a breakfast to go on morning where we were heading out on boat tours.

B & B in a ideal location especially for divers. Stayed here 3 nights and was very impressed. Quirky decor and very clean with everything available you might need. Best thing about this place is the owner. She is so attentive and cooks the most amazing breakfast! You wont need to eat again all day! Nothing is too much effort... More

Two nights in this superb B&B confirms Scotland's 4 star B&B value. Used family room provided with many extras including bath robes and a wide cross section of cosmetic toiletries. A seperate comfortable lounge is available for TV viewing on a large flat screen. Excellent siting of this B&B overlooks the busy Stromness harbour and marina. Furnishing is quite exotic... More

Very pleasant B&B in good position overlooking Stromness harbout. Good sized bedroom with so many thoughtful extras (eg umbrellas, ironing board and iron, two towelling dressing gowns, sweets, up to date magazines, little fridge for milk). Breakfast was exceptionally good. Marvellous fresh fruit salad, beautifully presented, all sorts of nuts, seeds etc to add to cereals and an amazing choice... More

Good central location and although decor and ornaments quite personal and quirky couldnt find fault. The room was a good size, shower brill and all the extras welcome. At £60 pn really good value too considering we also stayed in hostels charging £50 without breakfast. Would recommend!

Minutes from centre of town and ferry and parking available. Clean, quiet and peaceful house. and a good hostess. We enjoyed our very good breakfasts from the extensive menu provided. From this I would recommend Ferrybank to visitors looking for accommodation in Orkney

Stayed 3 nights last week and was astounded by the thoughfulness of our host even down to providing umbrellas for each guest. Bed supremely comfortable and breakfast was imaginatively presented and delicious. Great views from rooms which were exceptionally well equipped. Thank you Venus for an outstanding experience!

This B&B is unbelievable! It doesn't look very large when you approach it from the street, but it is built into the hillside and is surprisingly spacious. Mrs. Hourston is the consumate hostess, welcoming and friendly - the extras in our room were staggering - a mini fridge for the creamers, a kettle, loads of treat (cookies, candies, chocolates, chips,...

We enjoyed 3 nights staying in Ferrybank. Venus Hourston made us feel so welcome in her home and provided lots of extras in our room to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, (including SO soft bathrobes!). Her pretty starter dish of fruit at breakfast suited us perfectly and we enjoyed chatting with this lovely Orcadian lady. The house is situated... More

We have stayed at this B & B for many years on our trips up to Orkney and over that time we have never been disappointed. We arrive off the boat often feeling tired after a reasonably long journey and it is always nice to be greeted by Venus. The room is warm, clean and welcoming. Even small things that... More
