Fabulous
From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome and pretty much at home. The owner, Gina, has certainly got it right in every department. The manager, Suzanne, is always on hand and nothing is a bother to her. She takes time to chat with everyone and is always cheerful. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. We were also greeted at breakfast each morning by a very cheerful Jacqueline. However the best part, by far, was the food. We ate in the restaurant on each of our four nights and were treated to the most amazingly fresh, well cooked seafood. Its the best we've eaten anywhere in the world. Generous portions, reasonably priced. This is seafood heaven.
Delicious half lobster
Plump, large, tasty scallop starter.

Staff excellent, friendly and helpful. Good food, heavily geared to fish and seafood. Access to a shared kitchen/dining area, with washing machine and drying rack. Bathroom very tight, and had a bare clear window, insufficient provision for towel hanging. Beds a bit high.

This was a lovely inn in a beautiful little community. The room was clean and big enough for us to feel comfortable in while living out of 2 big suitcases. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was FABULOUS- so much so that we ate there 2 nights in a row. The freshest fish!!!! I would highly recommend this inn!

Received a very warm and friendly welcome. The staff and service received in the hotel and restaurant was excellent. Our room was very clean and well equipped. Perfect for our one night stay as we travelled through on our Orkney Islands trip.
