Burnside is very conveniently located to storminess without being in the town. It has great views. Breakfast was always delicious (great selection of fruit as well as perfectly cooked eggs and mushrooms). Joy was helpful and quite knowledgeable.

Burnside Farm is a great place to stay while touring the Orkney's. Just up the hill from Stromness with a lovely view over the town and harbour, it's a nice walk into town for dinner.

The Scapa View room was lovely - beautifully decorated, wonderful view, and the most luxurious bathroom we've ever had, including hotels. Great breakfast served in a lovely sun porch encouraging conversation with other guests. Joy's picnic lunch was excellent and her advice invaluable. Plan to return!

Details of accommodations have been so carefully planned! Things are so lovely -- but not so fussy you feel you're living in a museum piece. The hosts are warm without hovering, but make themselves available for assistance when needed.

I can thoroughly recommend this B&B. The welcome was warm, the information available was superb, the breakfasts were to die for and we could come and go as we please, none of this "You can't come back until after 5.00" rubbish. A brilliant place to stay

Really enjoyed our stay in at Burnside. Great views, very comfortable room, excellent breakfast. Joy the owner was very friendly and helpful. Loads to see and do nearby. And the walk from the town is short. Would definitely go there again.

10 minute walk from Stromness, fine views over to Hoy. Great breakfasts and a very kind and helpful owner. North View room is smaller, with a separate bathroom. Hoy View is big and roomy with ensuite bathroom.

We had a wonderful stay at Burnside farm b&b in Stromness. The rooms were very neat and comfortable with modern amenities and great shortbread. The breakfast was outstanding and the view from the room was breathtaking.

Fantastic location, near to shops and restaurants and ferry terminal. Plenty to do in the area even if the weather is not that good. The breakfast was amazing and came from the farm or nearby. Would definitely visit again!

We had 3 lovely days with Joy at Burnside - truly a home from home. This is a great place to explore western Orkney, and the views over Stromness in the sunshine are superb Our room was the height of comfort, and breakfast was amazing
