We stayed for three nights in July at this lovely old house. Our room was excellent - very large with original wooden shutters and a beautifuly appointed shower room. The breakfasts were superb. Well done Edgar and Ruth; you are a real credit to Scottish hospitality.

We stayed with Ruth and Edgar for 7 nights between June and July, it was our first foray onto Orkney. The Bed and Breakfast is run from a large 19th century Manse House that's well decorated with light and spacious rooms that are spotlessly clean. You can be sure of a traditional Orcadian reception; Ruth is the business of the... More

It was our first experience at the B&B, which was in a perfect location for us. just blocks away from the cathedral, museum, Earl's & Bishop's Palaces, as well as shopping, cafes and restaurants -- everything just a 3 minute walk away. Our room was... More

My friend and I spent two days here on a cycling holiday touring the Orkneys and Shetlands in May 2015. Arriving quite late, we were greeted by the friendly owners and shown to a nice & comfortable large twin room. The B&B was very clean and the owners couldn't do enough for us. They were very helpful and suggested a... More

Comfortable beds, great breakfasts, central location, friendly owners, safe car parking. Ruth and Edgar will look after you and give lots of advice to make your Orkney stay enjoyable. We visited for six nights and look forward to returning.

Sunday's Crescent was a lovely place to stay. Rooms spick and span, quality fixtures and fittings, and comfortable beds. Breakfast freshly cooked, totally delicious and satisfying. Lots of useful information provided and very welcoming hosts, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money, We hope to visit again.

Clean room best feature is when you walk in and see the sunshine coming through the two large windows and additional light coming through a side window. Hot or cold breakfast and the home owners only appear briefly in the morning when you have had your breakfast. One I wish is the ability to just have a chat with the... More

Arriving after 11pm off the ferry from Shetland, we were greeted warmly and shown quietly upstairs to one of the most beautiful bedrooms I have ever slept in. Large, with high ceilings, wooden panelling and shutters, a big super-comfortable bed and immaculate shower room. In the morning we opened the shutters to find light streaming in through several large windows.... More
