The Asgard is only 5 minutes walk from the ferry, which is so convenient. We stayed for 4 nights last August and had a fantastic time - there's so much to see in Orkney. Dawn and Harald keep an immaculate house- incredibly clean and neat. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts were superb. If you love dogs... More

We arrived off the ferry after a long journey and were so pleased to have chosen to stay at Asgard. Less than 5 minutes from the port meant a great start to our 3 night stay. Food great and hosts welcoming. Puppies a real highlight!

Our three days at Asgaard house were extremely pleasant. Asgaard is located just far enough away from the main streets of Stromness to be quiet, but close enough to be at the Ferry dock in just 7 minutes. The view is beautiful out over the bay. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The bed is comfy and the shower... More

This B&B is run to an extremely high standard by Dawn and Harald. We stayed for 5 nights while doing a drysuit course at Scapa Scuba. We had a twin room. Very comfortably furnished with all the items that you might need. Beds very comfortable, lovely shower room with a great walk in shower. Nice touch with the dressing gowns!... More

Dawn and Harold where the best hosts we have experience out side South Africa, they made our stay a home away from home, going the extra mile on all our needs. The B&B is a homely atmosphere with large comfortable rooms and bath rooms. All our meals where restaurant quality but with the homely touch.

A well run and helpful B&B. It is a little way out of Stromness if you are travelling on foot. A wide range of choices were available for breakfast including homemade preserves. The bathroom was spacious as was the guest lounge.Fresh milk was available to guests wishing to make a hot drink. Dawn has great local knowledge.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay, but find it odd that the location didn't suit you. We are only 3/4 of a mile from the town centre we feel this is just enough to walk to town but far enough to be out of the noise of the pubs and loading of the ferry. More

We have stayed in many B&Bs over many years and Asgard is amongst the most memorable because of the attention to anticipating every want and need of travellers. The room was spotless, bright, spacious enough, bed v. comfortable. Good shower, toiletries, robes. Hosts Dawn and Harald were friendly and relaxed, yet professional and obviously 'foodies' as breakfast was excellent with... More

I visited Orkney for the first time and was extremely glad that I chose to say with Dawn and Harald at Asgard. The house is beautiful and the rooms (I had two different rooms during my stay) were carefully designed to include everything a visitor might need--comfortable beds, plenty of covers for chilly weather, and well-appointed bathrooms. Each evening, I... More

Recently visited Orkney for the first time, and enjoyed staying here for three nights. Great welcome, helpful hosts, lovely food. Packed breakfast supplied for early ferry crossing kept us going all day! And just loved the home-made cheese. Thank you for having us!

Fantastic place, far enough out of Stromness to be quiet & near enough to stagger back after a good night in the Ferry. Spotless, great breakfast & friendly hosts really make a body feel welcome. I'll have no problem re-booking the next time I'm up there.
