5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a wonderful stay with Theresa and Norman at their B&B whilst we were in Orkney for a wedding. The rooms were spotless, very well furnished and the beds were very very comfortable. As it is a 15-20 minute walk to town it is very quiet at night time and the blinds block out most of the light, which... More

We stayed for 3 nights in July - the location is not too far away from the centre of town. The owners were very welcoming and the room was lovely with ensuite (nice hot shower, that didn't take long to heat up) and the bed was really comfy. Great breakfast provided from healthy options (yoghurt, fruit and cereals) to a... More

The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. Theresa is a very welcoming and friendly hostess. The breakfasts were amazingly good. The location of the B&B means you have a scenic 20 minute walk into the town centre but that was part of the attraction for me, so no problem. Kirkwall and Orkney in general is a fascinating place to... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in June 2016, had a wonderful time. The B&B was very new, the rooms spacious and clean, and one can see that Theresa is a very thoughtful host who has filled the room with all the amenities that one needs. The place is not in downtown, and we need to walk some 40 minutes... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week while touring Orkney. It was a friendly and comfortable experience. Our hostess, Theresa, went out of her way to help us out whenever necessary. Breakfast was good (standard Scottish fry up but also fruit and cereal, eggs and toast). The WiFi was dependable, a little slow for my massive photo uploads... More

Theresa and Norman couldn't be more helpful. From sorting out boarding passes, to offering advice, they go out of your way to make you feel welcome. Some beautifully cooked breakfasts, local soaps in the bathroom and new furniture and fittings, Arconnel is a great place to stay. 30 min walk from Kirkwall centre, easy to find. Just pre-book a car-... More

We stayed here for five nights. On our arrival we arrived in Orkney around mid-night off the ferry and we were met with a warm welcome. We can not fault anything what so ever and this has to be one of the best accommodations we have stayed. Theresa and Norman are so friendly and helpful. We will be back to... More
