“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We spent 4 nights in this lovely B&B and had a really great time. It is homely, comfortable and in an ideal location. The Dennisons are friendly and relaxed and we enjoyed chatting to them. Maureen is a marvellous baker - her shortbread alone could have crowds flocking to Stromness! We would definitely return here if we went to Orkney again.

A really friendly, helpful, comfortable, feel-at-home B&B, but/and the breakfasts concentrate the care and attention into something truly fine. Great smoked haddock cooked to perfection, so you start your day on a note of lipsmacking happiness. The homemade bread and the baked extras changing each day - the scotch pancakes, fatty cutties, cinnamon buns - add that generous spirited extra to it all. We always try to pick up on the promise of something special in a B&B, but this one is up there with the very best handful. All right, slightly less than a handful. Maybe a handful if you include Ireland and France. This review is late too, but the memories are as fresh as the baking.

A very belated review from April 2012 but a stay at this wonderful b and b in Stromness was a great break. My sister and I stayed here for only 3 days but it was perfect. Our room was a lovely en-suite twin room,quiet, roomy withall the extra's that are appreciated. Also, great breakfast with homemade breads and even cheese. I highly recommend this lovely home with hard working hosts and will be definitely coming back..a long way from Australia but truly worth it for position,quality of room and lovely hosts.

This was the best B&B of our fortnight's holiday - and the one closest to home! It's just a short walk from the ferry terminal in Stromness which is very convenient of you're on foot. Maureen and Magnus made us most welcome and the accommodation was excellent. The most welcome thing was fresh milk in the fridge in the bedroom as standard (so often I read in a B&B's info pack that "fresh milk is available on request", but it's usually about 10.30pm when I read this and far too late to go and bother the owner). Homemade cake was also provided in the room. The room, and indeed the whole establishment, was immaculately clean and tidy, without you feeling that you mustn't touch anything!
Breakfast was a sight for sore eyes - home-made bread, yoghurt, jams, 'fattie cutties' (an Orcadian equivalent to Welsh cakes) and locally produced sausages and bacon from the butcher down the road. All in all I would highly recommend Miller's House.

Room Tip: We had the North room. A very nicely appointed twin room.

Lots of thoughtful touches eg a mini fridge in room and helpful advice, including a loan of midge repellent for my trip to Hoy. In many years of staying in B and Bs, I think the best breakfasts I've ever had. Highly recommended in this lovely little town.

No need to look any further . I found Miller's House , Maureen and Magnus to be fully deserving of all the praise listed here.

Lots of great touches to make you feel so welcome and it is no surprise that you really do need to book well in advance.
