We had a wonderful five course Orkney Feast at The Missing Bell. The canopies, seafood starter, pre-main course consisting of wild boar and the venison main course with root vegetables were all delicious, but it was the dessert of six or seven mini sweets that was to die for! This was one of the most memorable dinners we have had... More

Food like you will never experience anywhere else. We had another excellent dinner with the most fantastic food, I lost count of all the different courses. Stayed overnight in a very comfortable room, then more great food at breakfast. Thank you so much, we'll be back!

I never expected to find such a fantastic meal in such a remote place. The attention to detail was exquisite and each course lovingly prepared. Beautiful sitting room and excellent service. A real treat.

My husband organised a surprise dinner bed and breakfast visit here to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The warmth, friendliness and atmosphere here is way ahead of anything we have found before. It is somehow like visiting good friends or relatives but with every little detail added to make you not want for anything. Even more impressive is what they... More

Unquestionably eastward made the difference between an enjoyable and memorable holiday. The warmth, friendliness, attention to detail, cleanliness and facilities exemplify the best hospitality and dinner experience and must set new standards for B&Bs. Our welcome pots of fresh coffee were followed by a one-hour personal presentation of how to get the best out of our short time of just... More

We stayed here with a group of eight friends and opted for the Tokyo Nights Banquet, it really was superb culinary experience with a spectacular array of dishes. Highlights from the meal were the Sushi, Tempura, Tuna and the desert which was delicious. The accommodation was clean and well equipped, there is a lounge in which we could all relax... More

This is our third visit to Eastward Guest House and it just gets better and better. Our hosts Patrick and Keiko were so welcoming it was just like coming home. The food is to die for and the standards set are second to none - they set the bar really high and attention to detail with fresh, locally sourced produce... More

It's perfectly simple - all the glowing reviews here are completely true and richly deserved. Our room was spotless, beautifully decorated, extremely well appointed and blissfully comfortable. The guest lounge is gorgeous and an unexpected delight in a B&B. (On our return journey we stayed at a very well known and extremely expensive hotel chain in Glasgow, and frankly the... More

The warmth and generosity of Patrick and Keiko at Eastward Guest House made our stay a happy one. The delicious and exciting food they prepared for us was unlike anything we have ever experienced in Orkney. They have an obvious deep respect for the ingredients used in their cooking which produces exquisite results. We had 12 courses of Japanese cooking... More

My husband and I stayed only one night in this wonderful b&b and we wish we had time to stay longer!! Dinner was a feast for all the senses, the company incredible. Our room was very comfortable with a private bath across the hall. Patrick and Keiko have thought of all the little touches. Robes, coffee, teas, hot chocolates, biscuits... More
