“Best place to base your orkney exploration !”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Stayed in Hammersmith B&B for 2 days last week. Had fantastic time. Hosts Phil and Lynn run the most friendly and warm service and have very good attention to detail and ahve thought about all aspects of your stay including a daily update on what happening in Orkney . The facilities are very clean, modern and comfortable - easily one of the best you will experience. I agree with previous reviewers about the quality of the breakfast - simply superb! They also had some home made cookies in the room which tasted great! Very close to attractions like Stones of stenness, ring of Brodgar and Maeshowe. Also just next door to Fursbeck pottery, which is worth a quick visit. All in all highly recommended - would love to stay here every time i visit Orkney!

A beautiful house where we had our own downstairs 'suite'. Very comfortable, excellent facilities, very pleasant, nice and knowledgeable hosts and a most superb breakfast. Good location for exploring mainland Orkney... oh and the friendly chickens that sat on our window-sill were lovely too as was the beautiful border collie dog who made an appearance once or twice but otherwise you'd never know she was there. Thoroughly recommended.

A warm and helpful welcome to this small and very comfortable B&B. Probably the best breakfast during our stay, not to mention the homebaked cookies by the bed! Good information about the area, including history and where to eat. Be sure to bring some jars of the good Hammerjam back, gives you pleasant memories once home!

We had a brilliant time at the Hammersith B&B.

It was very much a fleeting visit as we were in the area for a weddding. However, despite the brevity of our stay we were warmly welcomed.

The room is spotless as was the ensuite. The beds were very comfortable with lots of fluffy towels to use.

The breakfast was delicious (I am still dreaming about the poached egg on the cheesy crumpet) with lots of options.

The best thing about our stay was how helpful Phil was. He really went the extra mile to help us out and make us feel welcome.

This was our first trip to Orkney, and we were delighted with the B&B we choose. Lynn and Phil have gone to a lot of trouble to create a 'home from home' feeling, and we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay with them. Everything has been done to make guests feel relaxed and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious, especially the eggs, freshly laid by their own hens! All our questions were answered promptly and helpfully, and we were able to see everything we wanted to in the time available. Hammersmith is located close to all the main prehistoric sites and Phil has good knowledge of what to see and where to go. We agree with all the other reviews and definitely want to return on a future trip.

First we want to say: Thank you Lynn and Phil!
We stayed four nights at Hammersmith B&B and enjoyed
every day, especially the fantastic breakfast, the silence and the best bed we ever laid in.
Phil is a famous cook and all is made fresh and with love.
The room was perfectly clean, armed with a good working central heating system and a shower as hot as you want.
Lynn and Phil are happy, if you ask for thinks to do on Orkney.
They have a lovely dog (Lottie) and also lovely chicken.
There could be not better B&B at Orkney, so we give five stars to Hammersmith B&B.
Kind regards, Kristin and Jorg

Our 3 nights stay at Hammersmith B&B was most enjoyable and comfortable. Very modern with all new decor and facilities. Nice atmosphere, cozy feeling, and excellent breakfasts. They were willing to serve earlier than most B&Bs for early risers like us. My wife and I enjoyed quiet conveniences and friendly staff helping us with all questions relative to local sites to see and restaurants for dinning. Nice location in a rural area away from noise and traffic. Relaxing setting with spacious bedroom and bathroom. Modern bathroom with the largest shower stall I've seen in any B&B in the UK. With their over-thick walls, there was no noise from the rest of the house and no road noise. Ample parking off the local road. Convenient for those with a car or bikes.

Room Tip: Our room was excellent and we did not see any other rooms.
