Perfect location to explore Orkney! Modern; warm and welcoming!
The perfect place to stay on Orkney! Warm and welcoming hospitality; bright, modern and beautifully appointed; comfy room; delish breakfast – local cheeses, fresh fruit and amazing fresh baked cheese scones. The”kitchen /dining” area is great to relax after a full day of exploring Orkney or after dinner. Our hosts, Laura and Brian, could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Perfect location! p.s. our room was wonderful but our travel mates had the room with the water view…. wow!
I wish we could have stayed longer!
