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

We stayed a night during a cycling trip on the island. The lady who runs it was helpful and friendly without being intrusive. We chose one of the rooms with a view, even though the bathroom was not en-suite. The en-suite room that was available had no views, whereas the views from our bedroom window were amazing. The pub food... More

Stayed at the Taversoe Hotel with a friend one night in October while visiting Rousay. Checked in then went off to explore Midhowe Broch and Chambered Cairn and the other buildings along the route to St. Mary's Church. On our return had some pints and then dinner. The local beers were excellent and the meal was superb. I should note... More

I stayed for 3 nights on business, and was well looked after. The staff are very friendly and helpful. My double room had a lovely view out to the sea and Mainland Orkney. The bed was very comfortable and all amenities were provided. The room is not ensuite, but the bathroom is a mere few steps away across the hall.... More

The proprietress was very welcoming, efficient, helpful, and not intrusive (she really runs the place: bar, meals & management). A very nice restaurant and guest lounge with a spectacular view (which you also have from your room if you are in room 1 or 2). The meals were really excellent and local sourced; we had succulent home made burgers. She... More

We had a perfect lunch of soup and sandwiches at the Taversoe Hotel. The menu has great options, the food was freshly made, and the view from the restaurant was fantastic.
