Definitely a cut above most B&Bs! The comfort and style of a very good hotel, but with a much more individual and friendly approach.
This is a lovely old house which is situated right by the sea - we had stunning views from our room (called, appropriately, "Sea"). It is also extremely convenient for the St Margarets Hope ferry, and the village itself is very pleasant - there is an excellent pub, some craft shops etc, and it would be a great base for touring Orkney as well as a ferry stopover.
The room was very large, beautifully and stylishly furnished, and extremely comfortable. Some nice small touches e.g. a fridge, with fresh milk provided. Also very good wifi.
David and his son were extremely friendly and helpful, and very interesting to chat to.
We greatly appreciated being given a really lovely packed breakfast as we were on the early morning ferry.
