Roeberry House is a beautiful 1861 mansion that has been converted to a B&B. It was perfect for a quiet place to land during what turned out to be a rather whirlwind tour of sites in Scotland. Our host, Joseph, was terrific (Dagmar was away when we were there). Our room was comfortable and warm (the weather was unseasonably wet... More

Firstly I should declare that I'm a trainer for Humanist Society Scotland and when we were looking for a venue to update our northern celebrants I had no idea that one of our celebrants actually runs a B and B which can be used as a training venue. Dagmar, the proprietor gave us first class service from start to finish... More

Roeberry House has an amazing view and Dagmar is a great host. She offered a kitchenette and washing machine just for the use of guests which was very helpful as we had been traveling for a week when we arrived. Highly recommended, but make sure you have a car to get around since the b+b is in a more remote... More

We discovered Roeberry House on tripadvisor, and were looking for somewhere special for our mini honeymoon in Orkney. We found it! We live in New York, and contacted Dagmar by email. She responded immediately and right from the word go was helpful and courteous. As others have said on this site, Dagmar really does welcome her guests into her home... More

I planned a short but very busy trip to Orkney with my 12 year-old daughter; we wanted to see as much of the Island's heritasge and history in four days. I found Roeberry House via Tripadvisor, and Dagmar replied quickly with recommendations for the trip. We stayed three nights in a very comfortable twin room. Guests have the use of... More

Our ultimate destination in Scotland was Orkney to visit all the neolithic sites. I found Roeberry House at Trip Advisor and all the rave reviews convinced me to email Dagmar. That was the start of what has become a wonderful friendship. She is not just a B and B owner, she opens and shares her home with those people brave... More

Cannot rate Roeberry House or her host Dagmar high enough. Not only does she open her house to you but her heart too. From the first email then meeting to finally our stay and wedding was fun, smooth, stress free and perfect for us. The house was better then the photos and we had the run of the house for... More

Roeberry is a beautiful house with spectacular views. There is a little bay 5mins down hte road for beach lovers. My husband & I were looking for a last minute, short stay in Orkney with our dogs. We found Roeberry House and are thankful there was availability. Dagmar & I spoke on the phone prior to visiting, to discuss our... More

Our stay at Roeberry house for two nights was the best ever - room, house, views, gardens, dog friendly, sandy beach, and most of all a charming host. Their three Springer Spaniels were impressively behaved and made our Cocker Spaniel most welcome.

My wife, Bryony, and I got married at Roeberry House at the beginning of June 2012. We knew we wanted a relatively small wedding (around 17 guests), but we were clueless when it came to precise details of the day. The Humanist celebrant, who also owns and runs Roeberry House, Dagmar Sitte, turned out to have a great combination of... More
