    Karrawa Guest House, Kirkwall, United Kingdom
    Great stay.
    We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was spacious and comfortable. And the huge bathroom looks like it was recently renovated to a high spec. The room exceeded our expectations. Breakfast good and our host was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

    Karrawa is an excellent guest house. I would suggest that the walk from the town center, while not terribly long (about 3/4 mi) is uphill. Also, staff is not necessarily on the premises unless they know your time of arrival....don't expect a red-carpet greeting if you have not alerted them to your plans. Kirkwall is extremely quiet after six people, so do not expect to find a taxi or advice after six pm.

    Relaxed and very pleasant
    We enjoyed our first ever trip to Orkney tremendously. Friendly, but laid back hosts of a beautifully refurbishing B&B about a 15 minute walk from Kirkwall centre. Breakfast was tasty, well cooked and plentiful so if we had one minor snag, it was that breakfast was served between 7.30 - 8.30. Given we were in Kirkwall for a full on, 3-day Orkney wedding, #totalexcess, we could have done with a later sitting, but we went back to bed after eating on the Saturday morning and arranged to just stay in bed on the Sunday which was fine. I asked for extra coffee and milk to be left in the room and that was provided so it all worked out well.
