We stayed at the Taversoe several years ago when the current owner had just taken over. We were pleased to see that although the facilities have been updated the Taversoe has retained its charm and character. The resident's lounge was a welcome haven after a 3 day journey from SW France, we enjoyed the peace and quiet until late in... More

The staff are so friendly and helpful, they really make you feel at home (even though we only went for a drink and then lunch on two separate occasions). The food is fantastic quality and very very reasonably priced, especially considering it's remote location. Astounding view from the restaurant an added bonus.

Passing by on a day trip, we called in for drinks and was lured into lunch with promise of Cullen skink, one of our favourite soups. We were not disappointed, it was one of the best with local ingredients. Sorbet puds were homemade and kids loved milk shakes with Orkney ice cream. Good to see a dog friendly pub with... More

Popped here for lunch on a day trip to Rousey. Great location, just half an hour or so walk from the ferry terminal, so ideal for a stroll along the road to view the three burial chambers on that stretch of coastline. Fantastic views from the beer garden, lovely lunch menu, delicious food and great service.

I stayed for 3 nights last week with a friend in a twin room. The room was cosy, warm and clean with plump pillows and a comfortable mattress. There's a lounge for guests with an amazing dvd collection if you get stuck in on a very wet day! The breakfast was plentiful and absolutely delicious. We had our dinners there... More

Whilst working on rousay we stayed at the Taversoe for the week, We didn't have much work to do during the day so spent a lot of time within the hotel, this was no hassle whatsoever to the owners which made our stay much more comfortable!! Extremely helpful without being intrusive.... Rooms were spotlessly clean with a large choice of... More

Had lunch here 1st August 2013, on a rather damp and foggy day........it was delicious, service was excellent! Coming back to stay for a couple of days. Certainly made the wet foggy walk back to the ferry more bearable with a good lunch on board!

Visiting the Island for a day we had lunch here and are so glad we did. The view from our table was stunning. We both had the fish and chips and agreed it was beautifully cooked, served and presented. Lots of other favourites on the menu to choose from.

Four of us spent two days and nights in this comfortable and well run inn on Rousay -an island off an island. Our rooms shared one bathroom but had splendid picture window views across to Mainland Orkney. Food was good - eg local crab, Orkney fudge ice cream sundae. Bar was busy at weekend with locals and students who are... More
