“Great location & friendly welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

We spent three relaxing nights here, the set up is ideal being separate from the main house with your own entrance. Cosy bedroom with large bed. Lovely modern ensuite bathroom with whirlpool bath and separate shower. Conservatory area has sofa, chairs and dining table - enjoyed hearty breakfasts and the view of Scapa Flow.

Great location for exploring the mainland - just a few minutes from Kirkwall. This was our first visit to Orkney and we'll definitely return. Tracy was very helpful accommodating my vegetarian requirements, and recommending places to eat out and visit. Thanks!

We were happy to come across the West Greenigoe B&B near Kirkwall. Tracy and David, our hosts, were so warm and friendly and the house is set up such that you feel like you have the whole house to yourself, like your own little cottage. Although the house is very close to the main road, there is hardly any traffic on the road and the views and surrounding scenery are breathtaking. From the driveway, you enter the house through the solarium, which is for the sole use of guests while you are there. It is in the front of the house with a dining table, couch, and reading materials. The views form this room are out over the Scapa Flow and we had some beautiful sunrises and sunsets all to ourselves. From the solarium, you enter the house and our bedroom was just through the main door and to the right. It feels like you have your own little cottage.

The amenities were very clean and the bathroom looked like it was brand new and had a very nice shower and a jacuzzi as well. Tracy and David were available by ringing a bell across from our bedroom. We used this B&B mostly as a jumping off point to see the many sights of the Orkneys, but we made sure to come back to enjoy the sunsets in our solarium while we ate dinner that we brought with us. Breakfasts are included, full Scottish breakfast with cereals, yogurt, fruit, toast, juice and coffee or tea. Tracy was lovely in helping us coordinate with the Ferries for getting on and around the islands. We really thought this was the best part of our entire trip to Scotland and enjoyed having the B&B all to ourselves. It's a few miles from the center of town so you'll need a car, but it is well worth it for the wonderful views and amenities and generous hosts!
