We felt like we were staying with friends. We have never stayed anywhere with such an emphasis on amazing and varying daily breakfast. Dinner was incredible and is not to be missed. There is no other food in Orkney that even comes close. Patrick and Keiko are excellent hosts, and my wife, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to... More

Never stayed such a wonderful b&b before. Friendly hosts, fab breakfast, welcoming lounge. Cannot fault. 5*. The only thing I should blame is that the guest house is in Orkney rather than in next town from where we live. Never mind. We will come back.

Beyond a doubt the two best features of this old church converted into a B&B are the gourmet breakfasts and the owners who cook them for you. Let's face it, Scottish breakfasts can be stodgy, and after a few days vacationing, you can hardly face another bite of black pudding. So what you get at Eastward House might make you... More

My husband and I just stayed in Eastward Guest house for one week. We had never visited the Orkneys and had no idea what to expect. What we got was the best B&B experience of our lives. It's not just a place to stay, it's really like visiting a good friend's country house -- if that friend is a gourmet... More

I have never written a review in my entire life but this experience just needs to be shared. From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out, we had a 'wow' experience as a family: from the personal reception, to the fabulous location, to the entertaining storytelling, to the useful tips to get the most out of...

The Eastward Guest House is a unique B&B in the countryside on the Orkney mainland. It located in the countryside in an old stone church which has been updated into a modern guest house. Our driver/guide had booked us in for our four day stay on Orkney. The breakfast was outstanding, and the bed fabulous. Patrick and Keiko went beyond... More

Its a lovely b&b near the ferry in st. Margarets. Good service, great breakfast, perfect stay. The breakfast variety is incredible. We should have planned to stay long enough to try all the different choices they offer. We will one day come back. Very very recommended.

As we arrived we met a couple just leaving after their fourth visit and the following day, a couple arrived for their third visit. Anybody going there will understand why people keep going back. It was a combination of hospitality and incredible food, which is unlike anything or anywhere else so it’s unique experience. The food diners and gourmet breakfasts... More

Loved our stay at this truly lovely place with lovely people. You book an experience for all senses here: a culinary highlight in the middle of nature. Please do reserve at the missing bell home cooking restaurant: whether you're vegetarian, vegan or have any dietary requirement: it will creatively be taken into consideration. The breakfast was simply the best vegetarian... More

This is B&B is not a destination it's an experience! We arrived to be greeted warmly by Patrick who took us upstairs to the beautiful vaulted ceilinged room which is used as a guest lounge. The building was previously a church which has been lovingly restored by Keiko and Patrick. The acoustics in this room are of concert hall standard.... More
