This place is very conveniently located - just down from the ferry. It’s a short drive to anywhere on the island from there. Appreciated having access to laundry facilities and a refrigerator.

Doris is a terrific host who makes her guests very welcome. Ideal place to stay to visit Orkney. Very close to ferry terminal for travel to the mainland. Gerard McGirr

Great location right by the harbour and with nearby parking. Doris was prompt and helpful, with a great breakfast in the morning. Had the family room at the top and heating was great and beds comfortable. All facilities worked fine although WiFi signal a bit weak in the room.

Nice and clean in an older building and the spacious room was great. Doris was very welcoming and made sure we were ok. There was no parking at the guest house but was only a few minutes walk away and was expected due to the narrow streets of Stromness.

You will be welcomed by Doris or Hugh, and if you are lucky, by Dougal, our lovely little border terrier. We are very interested in Orkney's nature, historical sites and current events, so feel free to ask us for interesting day trips or secret gems.
