To our surprise the very first thing our hostess did when we arrived was dash off and return with a bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary - what a wonderfully thoughtful welcome! Everything was great - the bed was comfy & the room large and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious with a range of options... More

Comfortable bed, large room, and good bathroom. Gerry and Ingrid (who served us breakfast) were very friendly and anxious to please. We arrived quite late off the ferry from Shetland, and Gerry had left our keys, room assignment and breakfast menus out ready for us. Only issue we had was finding the place since it isn't technically on the street... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hildeval B & B in Kirkwall. The bed was enormous and rather dominated the room, leaving little space for bags etc. The bathroom was modern and served our needs well. The lounge/breakfast-room upstairs was a bonus and the only place wifi would work. The view to the harbour was magnificent. This B & B is... More

We spent 6 nights at Hildeval and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Gerry and Shirley were very welcoming and friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast staff were super too. A really comfortable, clean, tidy and well maintained B&B. Would gladly recommend to anyone visiting Orkney. Kirkwall is only a 10 min walk away and has... More

We spent two nights here as part of our tour. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast/ lounge room upstairs is a great bonus.

I stayed here recently as part of a Rabbies tour, and found it brilliant. I received a warm welcome from Shirley, and Zara and Angus her beautiful fur babies (for those not keen on dogs don't worry - they were beautifully behaved and I only saw them once). I was in room 3 which was a very comfortable single-bed ensuite... More

3 weary cyclists were made to feel very welcome and had a great stay. The rooms and facilities were ideal. Owners were exceptionally friendly and even ran us into town to catch a tour. Breakfast was great and set us up for the day. Well worth pedalling up a steepish hill!!!!!

Stayed here for two nights as part of a Rabbie's tour of Scotland. Had booked a single room and was given a huge King room. The rooms are well appointed and the bathroom very nice. Breakfast in the upstairs dining room overlooks views of the harbour and is great to look out over while having breakfast. The staff are extremely... More

Hi stayed there for one night, was made to feel very welcome by owners and other b&b guests. Breakfast was lovely, wifi a bit hit and miss but it is a small island off Scotland. Easy 5 min walk to harbour
