13 Palace Road is ideally suited for visitors to Kirkwall The house is spacious as are the rooms Spotlessly clean and the rooms beautifully furnished. Peter and Gemma and their boys and also Peter's mother made our stay very happy and comfortable

We loved our four days here, with Peter and Jemma. Their home is beautifully maintained, with all the rooms fully appointed, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were perfect, cooked to our tastes and with a wide menu of choices. Their wifi works well, and the location, within a block or so of downtown Kirkwall could not be better. We will...

Stayed for one night whilst on a diversion from the North Coast 500 but would happily have stayed longer. This is a lovely B&B with period character and super friendly hosts. The help yourself fridge with fresh milk jugs is a nice touch. Great central but quiet location next door to the Bishop's Palace and St Magnus Cathedral. You have... More

Beautiful 19th century home with three guest rooms one block from St. Magnus Cathederal. We told one of the host's sons that my husband and son were named Stanley and they were tickled as they had not met many other "Stanley's". Beautiful gathering lounge room with marble fireplace, fridge, snacks and television. We were on the go so much on... More

I stayed for two nights with my daughter in order to attend the Battle of Jutland commemorations and, considering how booked-up the whole of Orkney Mainland was, I was more than lucky to find this B&B. It could hardly be more central, being just a few steps from St Magnus Cathedral and the historic Earl's and Bishop's Palaces. In a... More

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. Location was perfect for moving around on foot, close to the centre of Kirkwall. We got good help when we needed, to find our way, book a taxi or checking the weather. Would absolutely stay there again.

A very good B&B located centrally in Kirkwall, just by the St Magnus Cathedral. Peter and his wife were really friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was good, cooked as you wanted. The B&B was clean and all rooms were done every morning. Highly recommendable.

We had a wonderful stay at Peter McKinley's family run B&B. He and his wife were very friendly and their sons Stanley and Riley were adorable, enjoyed meeting the entire family. We stayed in a very spacious twin room, the beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was wonderful and cooked to order,... More

We had 2 rooms, both were clean, bright and comfortable. The breakfasts were freshly cooked and a wide choice of dishes. Peter is a very friendly host, and his children are delightful. If we ever visit Orkney again there will only be one place to stay.
