“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2010

The location is extremely convenient to the ferry. The accomodations were comfortable, clean, and quiet. The breakfast made me feel like I was back in my grandmother's home. The food was great, especially the homemade jams.

If only their wireless internet worked....

I'm generally a bit wary of B&B's and "guest houses," but Miller's House was a relaxed, charming stay. Rooms are very private and comfortable (if perhaps a bit over-decorated), rates were very reasonable, and Mrs. and Mr. Dennison were wonderful hosts. They also provided one of the best breakfasts we had in Scotland. Location is something of a mixed blessing - it's easily reached from the ferry (just get off the ferry, head past the Ferry Inn, and you're at Miller's House), and conveniently located near the Ferry Inn for dining and grabbing a pint. Unfortunately, that also means that late night, much of the pub crowd found themselves outside our ground-floor window, making for a somewhat noisy night (we were, I should add, staying there on the weekend). However, this shouldn't put you off staying at this lovely guest house.

This B and B is right slap bang in the centre-handy for early buses. Our room was in the annexe. It was very comfortable, maybe a wee bit dated in decor but spotlessly clean.
But the ery best thing had to be the breakfast. Every morning there was homemade bread, and some other baked treat like scones or dumpling as well as cereals, fruit and an extensive cooked breakfast list. That included 3 fishy breakfasts as well as the most delicious veggie sausages I've ever had!

very central to town - could be a bit noisy on a saturday night with people passing room window. Delicious breakfast. Friendly Orkadian proprietors, very knowledgeable of area.

Stayed wtih Magnus & Maureen Dennison at Miller's House for 4 nights in June 2010. They were very helpful in assisting my efforts to book a local tour then find a rental car - even made some phone calls for me. Our room on the 2nd floor was nice sized, comfortable & very clean. Breakfast was made to order and plentiful. I even tried the smoked Haddock which was delicious. Location is close to the ferry dock. Very good value for the fine quality of accomodations.

This was our eight visit to Stromness and for various reasons we decided to try this guest house- what a gem! Magnus and Maureen are the most genial hosts with lots of local knowledge...but then we are on a small island! The room was very spacious with fluffy towels and lots of hot water- I hate showers and love a bath! BUT the breakfast is the best we have ever had- the home made bread and scones were scrumpious and my hubby put on lioads of weight! Dont bother looking elsewhere just book it!
