If you are looking for a great B&B experience on Orkney, look no further than the Eastward Guest House. Well-appointed in a beautifully renovated old church, the B&B is situated just minutes from the ferry terminal in St Margaret's Hope. Our hosts, Keiko and Patrick, gave us a very warm welcome. Patrick is knowledgeable and is more than happy to... More

Thank you to Keiko and Patrick for a memorable 9 night stay at the Eastward House. Their care and attention to detail is evident in every aspect of their B&B. Their breakfasts were a great healthy and nutritious way to start the day, and so generous we never needed lunch. We also had several dinners at the Missing Bell and... More

We spent 6 days at Eastward Guest House and it turned out to be the best experience in hospitality we ever faced. Keiko and Patrick made us feel as part of the family. We enjoyed very much so many interesting talks and advice for visits of interesting places. But most of all we were treated with the best, healthiest and... More

I can only agree with the previous reviewers - we received a wonderful welcome from Keiko and Patrick, they treated us as long-lost friends rather than paying guests, and made us feel at home straight away. And the food!! Exceptional. We have eaten a lot of Japanese food in both Japan and London, but the dinners we were served at... More

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
