Lindisfarne B&B is under new management from previous reviewers but from what has been said before the current hosts are continuing the tradition of excellent hospitality. We went there for our honeymoon and to our great surprise arrived to find a bottle of champagne in our room with a lovely fabric red rose and a couple of glasses. It's a... More

Absolutely delighted with this little gem of a B&B in Stromness! Conveniently located only 4 minutes away from the Ferry Inn, where we enjoyed excellent evening meals for both nights of our stay, we were happily surprised by the comfort and softness of the beds, after two less-than-good nights in other B&B's costing 15 - 20 pounds more per couple,...

I stayed here in 2006 with my husband and elderly parents. It was the perfect location for our week's holiday in Orkney. Eileen and Tom Worthington were very welcoming, the breakfasts were fantastic and the accommodation was excellent, with a lounge upstairs for the guests. The B&B is located a few minutes' drive from Stromness, and the views are stunning!

My daughter and I stayed at this B&B for 3 nights. It was a very pleasant stay thanks to our hosts. They are very kind and will go out of their way to help you find places and things to do. It's a bit difficult to find if you aren't familiar with the area; even the visitor center in Kirkwall... More

Tom & Eileen were very welcoming and helpful. Even emailing us to find out how we got on when they found out that our trip to Shetland was in doubt when we had been let down by the Guest House there. Would definately go back.

Eileen & Tom Worthington are excellent hosts and have a great place up on the hill out of Stromness, with stunning views over the harbour to Hoy. Tom lent me a pair of binoculars for our time there which was unasked for and much appreciated. I'm busy planning my next trip to Orkney and I'll gladly stay with them again.... More
