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

Roeberry is a beautiful house with stunning views. Dagmar is a welcoming and thoughtful host and really made us feel at home. We chose Roeberry as one of the few places on Orkney where we could stay with our dog and were very glad we did. Dogs can have their own doggie holiday in the barn or stay in the... More

Our room was spacious and had all amenities, plus there was a kitchen with tea/coffee, milk etc and facilities to heat food. The view from our bedroom - from everywhere in the house - was lovely. Our host, Dagmar, was warm and friendly and made us feel very at home; there were extensive public rooms where we could lounge around... More
