Stayed for two nights whilst on a diversion from the North Coast 500 but would happily have stayed longer. Superb welcome on arrival with tea and home baked treats. Easily the best bathroom of our trip; luxury spec with a fantastic rainfall shower. The breakfasts on offer include everything you could imagine; you won't need any lunch!

Very pleasant 2 day stay at Burnside farm - thoroughly recommended. Friendly owners, great breakfast, comfy rooms, decent bathroom and good tourism tips. Its just a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Stromness and really well located for lots of the sight-seeing.

Delightful stay at this B&B. Our hostess, Joy, is gracious, informative, and an incredible cook. The location is ideal - just a short walk to town with great restaurants and shops. Historical sites are just a short drive away. Our room was very comfortable. Really enjoyed witnessing the activity of this working dairy farm with their dog herding the cows.

We only stayed 3 nights and could have stayed 3 months! Our room and bathroom were spotless with views over the small town, the sea and the hills of Hoy, with a great breakfast and a great location close to many places of interest. Joy was most helpful with invaluable local information and helped us get the most of our...

My wife and I travelled to Orkney for the very first time despite being Scots based in Edinburgh. And what a treat it was to be welcomed by Joy and Robbie upon our arrival. The Hoy bedroom, bathroom and view were top rate as were the hearty breakfasts and conversations in the conservatory. Wifi and TV reception great too. Joy...

We only stayed one night, but we were made to feel very welcome. Our hostess served us with tea and cake when we arrived early, and was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic, we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Breakfasts were wonderful with local produce, including homemade Bere bannocks and porridge from heritage cereals, lots of fresh fruit. Bedroom facilities were spotless - fantastic shower and the most comfortable bed! Within easy reach of Orkney's well known archeological sites. It was a great place to stay and we'd be very happy to stay there again.

This is a great traditional farmhouse B & B on a working farm. Spotlessly clean, and very comfortable, with great views out over the sea at Stromness, we had a wonderful two days here. And the breakfasts, plus home made bread and cheeses, were amazing. If you are staying in Stromness, stay here!

Wonderfully comfortable, great value and spotlessly clean B&B just outside Stromness in the Orkneys. On a farm this is just off the main road into Stromness with a great view over green fields towards Stromness which is literally minutes away and could be easily walked. We stayed a couple of nights in their twin room upstairs which has an ensuite...
