A little out of town but the owner kindly ran us into town in his minibus. Great advice on evening entertainment and what to see on the island. Rooms were clean and warm and breakfast was spot on. Recommended.

We stayed recently at Ardconnel B&B for 3 nights in a family room during our visit to Orkney by car. We arrived to a warm welcome from Theresa and her husband Norman, as well as Winston, the labrador! They were both lovely, warm people, eager to help and to chat. Our room was upstairs and was nice and large, with... More

We stayed at Ardconnel whilst in Orkney this weekend. The place was absolutely spotless. Very modern, comfortable and homely. The double room was spacious with an en suite with clean fresh towels and plenty toiletries. Theresa made us feel very welcome and even cleaned my muddy boots for me after visiting the annual agricultural show. Speak about going the extra... More

Lovely modern clean and very comfortable room, excellent host who made us feel most welcome. Full Scottish breakfast was very tasty with lots of fresh fruit and cereal available. It's a lovely walk into Kirkwall down the sea front. I highly recommend Ardconnel, wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely stay again.

I was living for almost 3 years in Scotland and planned to visit a place I haven't manage to see during that time before heading off. My decision was Orkney and I found the Ardconnel B&B to stay in. The B&B was really easy to find and the room was really nice and clean! It is a short walk outside... More

Ardconnel was in a lovely rural setting just outside the capital, Kirkwall. We had a great three night stay in the twin room, with comfortable beds, plenty of clean fresh towels and all of the usual amenities you would expect, along with a few little treats such as the aromatic soaps and body washes from the Orkney soap company.

In Orkney for a wedding and stayed 4 days in this wonderful B&B can't recommend it highly enough Owners warm and friendly, lovely comfortable room and a really good breakfast. Slightly out of town but well worth staying there if only for the view. Ron & Angie Bradie

This was just an excellent stay! Nice and clean rooms and very good breakfast with a great selection of very well prepared fresh food. Also great views on the harbour out of our room, watching the big cruises arrive. Theresa, you made us all feel at home!!

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
