Really fab location with stunning views across to Hoy- a great base to explore Orkney. The room was clean, quiet, spacious and had some really lovely extras - the homemade shortbread was delicious! The bathroom felt and looked completely new, the shower was great. The breakfast was lush, easily the best porridge I've had. The breakfast spread was super, Joy and her team take a real pride in what they serve, and it really showed. Joy is an absolute fountain of knowledge, and was more than happy to offer advice as well as provide books/maps to help us throughout our stay. All in all it was a perfect base and I honestly can't wait to book in again- a great welcome to Orkney!

Room Tip: Hoy view had a beautiful view! You can't really go wrong with room choice though.

Very good location a bit outside of Stromness, perfect for exploring Orkney. Wonderful view from the room "Hoy view". Excellent breakfast with berries and full Scotish breakfast. Very nice and friendly people who can give many suggestions of interesting places and recommendation for restaurants.

Beautiful location, welcoming host, tasty breakfasts and spacious rooms. All in all a top-notch B & B. Joy was full of information about where to visit and careful of covid restrictions so I felt completely safe when staying.

The property is a short walk from Stromness. Warm, friendly and helpful owner. Excellent breakfast; the best porridge of our 14-day trip. We had the room with a separate bathroom; beautifully appointed, with plenty of hot water.

I'll come clean - we've reviewed Burnside Farm twice before, although in fact we've now stayed here 6 or 7 times, usually in late January (VERY off-season). It's just that we feel completely relaxed and wonderfully looked-after here. Joy and Robbie are lovely, friendly, perfect hosts, and Joy's food is always delicious, be it her signature marmalade, the cheese, the constant supply of shortbread biscuits in the room, or the gorgeous breakfasts with eggs from their own chickens. The rooms have the most wonderful view over Stromness, which is only 10 minutes' walk away, while Kirkwall is only around 20 minutes down the road in the other direction. I really don't know how else to praise this place any further without embarrassing ourselves and Joy and Robbie, but you have to believe us - it's complete perfection. We shall return!
