We recently spent 2 nights at the Bellavista. We booked with short notice and just got rooms as there was the annual Science Festival starting that week. We appreciated the friendly and prompt emails we received from Angela and Patsy.
My husband, our 3 year old and I stayed in room 5 (a family room). It consisted of a decent sized bathroom, a small main room with a double bed and another small room with a bunk bed - both rooms had window seats, a TV and were exceptionally clean.
My parents stayed in room 7 (a double room), a nice room with a double bed, and a small shower room.
There is a lovely sitting room downstairs with a fridge for guest use and a computer in the hall for guest use and/or free wifi.
Angela and Patsy were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a fantastic mixture of traditional Scottish and other items. They were very accomodating in providing anything we needed especially relating to our son.
The B&B itself is just on the shore near Kirkwall - a very quick drive or short walk into town. The town is beautiful and we were very lucky with the weather.
Everyone should make the time to go to Orkney - and when they do, they should stay at the Bellavista. If we get back, we will!
