Carolyn retrieved our lost luggage before we arrived and drove us to our dinner meeting to meet cousins just in time. Whew, without her generous help the evening would have been a disaster. If ever you're planning a three to seven day trip to Orkney, stay at the Benmora B&B. Spacious rooms. Comfortable beds and wonderful breakfasts. And, the site...

We have stayed in a few places in Orkney and I can safely say that the Benmora is the best B&B I've stayed in. It's clean fresh modern and the breakfast is well cooked and presented, the landlady Caroline is just a really nice friendly person. I would recommend this B&B to any one , I definatly will be back,...

Caroline is an excellent host and leaves nothing to chance. Breakfasts were a delight with fresh fruit as well as a traditional cooked breakfast to your order. The views over the harbour are stunning and there is a guest drawing room where you can plan the next days activities. The rooms are clean, the showers work and the towels are...

Close to town, good clean, roomy bedrooms with sitting area, fridges and tea making facilities. Carolyn's approach is very thoughtful and yet discreet. It is excellent value and much nicer than a hotel room. She provided us with an enormous breakfast package to take with us the day we left which lasted us the whole day. Lovely place to stay.

Lovely landlady, delicious breakfast, lovely harbour views from breakfast room and guest lounge. Easy walking distance to town centre. Comfortable beds and rooms. We stayed her for a week but wish it could have been longer.

An excellent experience, from the welcome when we arrived almost too late to book a meal and Caroline fetched a carry-out that we could eat in the dining room, the immaculately clean rooms, the wonderful cooked breakfast with choice of so much FRESH fruits to the wonderful views of the harbour from the large guest lounge and the dining room....

We were fortunate to enjoy a stay at Benmora in early May. It is an exceptional B & B in every sense, beautifully positioned overlooking Kirkwall harbour & marina, within a 5 minute walk of the town centre. Most importantly, Carolyn is an exceptionally warm and caring host. Her personal touch is evident everywhere. Her rooms are no less than...

Carolyn is an outstandingly warm, gracious host. Rooms are spotless; the guest lounge overlooks the harbour; breakfasts are excellent; and this location is within a 5 minute walk in to the core of Kirkwall, a lovely town on the Orkneys. In addition, the Wifi access is even better than ours at home in Canada! We have our last of 3...

We stayed at Benmora B&B for four nights and enjoyed this quiet place very much. The room was big enough for us and our two large suitcases. You can relax in your room as it offers two comfortable reading chairs or use the guest lounge which has a fantasic view across the harbour. We also enjoyed our delicious "breakfast with...
