“We loved it and we'll be back!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

We stayed in Straigona for 3 nights; in their Inganess room. The room is nicely decorated, the bathroom is spacious with a sky window and the view over Orkney from the room is beautiful. We had breakfast on all 3 mornings; which was fantastic - and our children's requirements were met in every way also. The B&B owners were lovely; and accommodated our every need - they also replied to every email I sent beforehand, answering all my questions on getting around on public transport and on the local area.
The location is perfect, near to the airport and therefore near to the local bus service. Julie also picked us up at the bus station on our arrival and took us back for our departure.

Everything about our stay at Straigona was great. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a great view. The location was excellent for sightseeing (provided you have a car). Breakfast was delicious, with lots of selections. We opted to have a couple of dinners there, and enjoyed the pork chops so much that we asked for the recipe. And last, but certainly not least, our hosts were friendly and very helpful. Hopefully we'll return to the Orkney Islands for a longer visit someday, and we certainly know where we will stay.
