Patrick and Keiko set out with the intention of welcoming you into their guesthouse as friends rather than as guests. They are generous and go out of their way to make you feel at ease. This is not just simply a guesthouse, however, this is an opportunity for a fine dining experience. The fresh food is painstakingly prepared and cooked... More

We greatly appreciated the level of hospitality offered at Eastward House. Our five day trip was spent sightseeing, birdwatching and walking. At the end of each day it was a delight to return for a tremendous evening meal prepared with exceptional skill and care. This was far above the standard of food we were expecting. Each meal for example, Italian... More

I don't use the word exceptional very much in reviews, only for places that go very much beyond what you would expect of a guest house. I am certainly applying it to Patrick and Keiko's Eastward House. It is located on S. Ronaldsay to the south of the Orkney islands and involves a drive down the main road across the... More

For the first night of a week's holiday in Orkney, my father booked our party of five a table at the Missing Bell at Eastwood House to celebrate my step-mother's birthday. Expecting to be among a larger group at the regular supper club, we were surprised to be the only diners, but the welcome from Patrick couldn't have been warmer.... More

As everyone else has already said, this is an exceptional place in every respect - the warm welcome, spotless accommodation, generous hospitality, everything. But what makes it super special is the cuisine. Patrick and Weiko put so much thought, love, care, planning and hard work into their themed menus. Everything is carefully sourced for optimum quality and freshly prepared so... More

Well not quite, but astonishing none the less. A snap-shot. Imagine a breakfast that starts with a simple bowl of fresh fruit, prepared minutes earlier and excuisitely cut by hand containing at least 6 or more varieties. I have had fresh fruit for breakfast all over the world but not prepared with such precision and attention to detail. After each... More

We arrived as guests and left as friends! What a special place and family to make our stay so memorable! The breakfasts were only surpassed by the meal of a lifetime- the Tokyo dinner. We have never experienced such a exquisite meal! We hope to come back some day.

Something of a challenge for a vegan couple to honeymoon in Orkney. My wife Googled 'orkney bnb vegan' and the next thing we were being served an eight-course vegan Japanese banquet in a beautiful converted church on South Ronaldsay. Patrick is an old-school raconteur - go to the Eastward Guesthouse to be welcomed into someone's home and to hear tales... More

We were drawn to Eastward House by the food! My husband and I are foodies who love a good meal, so when we saw that Eastward House was a converted church which serves wonderful food we were hooked. And we weren't disappointed. Patrick and Keiko are exceptional hosts who literally can't do too much to help. To start with we... More

Patrick and Keiko who own and run Eastward Guest House have created an exceptional and unusual place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble. We arrived mid evening on a Sunday, and having been told that we would have trouble finding anywhere for an evening meal if we had not pre-booked ,Keiko managed within 30 minutes to produce a delicious...
