Accommodation was in perfect location in centre of town and within close proximity of shops/restaurants and only 5 minutes walk from ferry terminal and bus station. Doris was also very helpful and accommodating to any of our needs.

The guesthouse is very central and well located in Stromness. We had to take the Ferry early the next morning and it was perfect for us. The beds were comfy, the room was clean and we had tea and coffee. Thank you again!

A great hostel in the heart of Stromness. The place is a five-minute walk from the ferry terminal, a welcome bonus if you've had a long journey to Orkney. The room was clean, spacious and good value, while Doris was a friendly and helpful host.

Doris’ place was so close to the ferry terminal, it was handy for leaving on the early morning ferry. She was very welcoming, hospitable and just all around lovely. The room was clean, lovely tea, coffee and biscuits, and nice and cosy. I slept very well; wonderful comfy beds…

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.
