Host Teresa was very welcoming and great idea of booking one of 3 times slots for breakfast and choices the night before really worked well. Plenty of breakfast choice and nicely... More

We recently visited for two nights and had a wonderful stay. The room was large, comfortable, clean and well - equipped with some very thoughtful touches including locally - produced toiletries. The location was excellent, being peaceful yet close enough to walk into Kirkwall. Our host was friendly and offered a great selection for breakfast (all delicious). Highly recommended -... More

A colleague and I were working on Orkney and booked into Ardconnel as our base for a few days. Theresa and Norman are a lovely and welcoming, down to earth couple who found just the right balance between being helpful and friendly, and giving you some space, and because of this I felt very comfortable staying with them. My room... More

Our twin room was large, completely spotless and evidently very well cared for. The bathroom was also clean, newly refurbished and included toiletries made by the local Orkney Soap company. We had access to wi-fi and a TV in our room, with tea and coffee-making facilities and biscuits to snack on. We received a warm welcome and our hosts were... More

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
