Shona was a great host for our 3 night stay at The Inn guesthouse. The Inn is located centrally on the main island in Orkney and is an easy drive from the ferry at St Margaret's Hope or Stromness. There is only one place to eat in St Marys and that is quite a good welcoming pub/restaurant. Shona makes a... More

This placed proved a little difficult to find. It's right on the main road, the A961 going south from Kirkwall. It;\'s on the left side of the road at the apex of a right angled bend just as you come into St Mary's There are no buildings on the other side of the road If you find yourself going over... More

We stayed 5 nights in a double bed room on the top floor. The room was light and cheerful with a view of the sea. Everything was spotlessly clean and there is a good shower with plenty of hot water. The room is compact but more space than most BNBs we have stayed in in the UK. The room was... More

Friendly, hard working host. Excellent breakfast, nice view. There is parking across the street, and the location is convenient for touring the island by car. The rooms contained all our needs, and the host (for a fee) did our laundry.

We booked this hotel at very short notice for one night only. I really cannot say anything bad about it. The staff were so lovely and the room was superb. Bright airy and excellent value. I would give another star if I could. I intend to stay for longer next time!

Everything you'd wish for in a B&B - spotless bedroom, multi-choice hot drinks & biscuits in room, plenty cupboard space, comfy matress, powerful shower and thoughtful toiletries. The breakfast was varied and plentiful and hostess and staff friendly and informative. Great base for seeing Orkney.

Had a lovely 4 night stay here with my parents and sister while visiting my uncle last weekend. My sister and I shared a double room which was fully equipped with absolutely everything. TV, wifi, all things you may have forgotten such as a comb, shower cap etc, biscuits and tea etc. The rooms were really clean and tidy, everything... More

Nicely located property, especially if you have come in on the Gill's Bay crossing. We took in the Italian chapel on the way and came across the Churchill Barriers. Fantastic views. Friendly welcome. Comfortable bed. Good sleep. Lovely breakfast that will set you up for the day beautifully.
