Visiting the island whilst touring the Orkneys, we came across the Belsair and decided to eat there. From the exterior, there has obviously been a recent programme of refurbishment, and it looked very nice. This work has obviously been continued into the bar area. Sadly though, the effort put into this has obviously detracted from any customer service training. Lacklustre... More

Admittedly, I am lucky enough to now live on Sanday, but unlucky enough to have to work away a lot of the time. This being the case, I was away for my wife's birthday. However, I contacted Claire and Matt, in secret, asking if they could put on a birthday treat for said wife in my absence. Nothing was too... More

Shower was certainly hot but a bit uncontrollable. now to the best bit the food was excellent we ate there both nights. It was well... More

Went here on 12 August - during a day trip to Sanday. Small seating area with small bar. No staff around when we arrived, but locals eating at one table and visitors at another. Waiting a minute or two before someone came and took our order for food and drinks....then waited 45 minutes for the food to arrive! Was getting... More

We decided to go into the Belsair for a drink, when we were out on a day trip. When we arrived there was one man in the bar, with a pint, we stood for at least 10 minutes & no one came through to serve us, looked for a bell or something to get staffs attention but couldn't see one!... More

Made very welcome with my children and parents. Toasted Sandwiches a must !!!! Nothing was too much trouble. Both owners are going to a lot of trouble to make this a success and I wish them all of the best on this and yes I will return !!!!! Great location too

Stopped just one night as I was passing through. Rooms a little old . And a bit dusty but comfy bed.. I went for a meal but service was slow and very average to be fair.. probably give this one a miss in future. Lovely island though. Will definitely return there

There are not many options on Sanday. Room was comfy, a bit dusty - looked like it had only had a lick and a promise. Bed comfy. Shower fair flow but small cubicle. Felt like we were inconveniancing the owner by being there, didn't feel welcome at all. Premises very dated but you can forgive that if you get a... More

Had a meal here with friends the other day. John, the proprietor, was very welcoming. We had meals for four and the bill was around £40 including drinks, two coffees and ice creams. The Belsair is a well-maintained establishment situated down by the old harbour in Kettletoft. Rooms available at £30 per person B&B. There is even a free cash... More

We stayed at the Belsair when we visited Sanday recently. Admittedly, Sanday doesn't have all that many options, but we found the Belsair to be ideal. The bed was extremely comfortable,and the room had all the facilities we needed and a lovely view; the food was typical 'pub food' but was very well prepared and tasty, but most of all,... More
