The setting is stunning, a wide view of the harbour, minutes walk from the quiet Kirkwall hub, perfect facilities, warmest welcome and every possible special touch. Simply superlative. What sets this apart? A guest lounge with a view, armchairs and wine glasses so you can byo and relax. Spacious fully equipped rooms with a silent fridge and personal fresh milk...

I picked this b&b primarily for its location, and it certainly proved its worth. A 5-minute walk into the centre of Kirkwall which is packed full of history. Carolyn was most helpful and an excellent cook besides, a terrific hostess. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Overlooking the Port, this is a great find with lovely breakfast made to your liking. Only 5 mins to town restaurants and Visitor center. About 12 mins and 10 quid from the airport by Taxi. If we ever come back this is where we will stay again. See picture from inside.

Very nice B&B situated close to harbour with great views from guest lounge and breakfast room. Easy to walk to town centre for meals. Comfortable room (with chairs so you don't have to watch TV sitting on the bed) with superb shower, nothing to criticise really, honest to goodness B&B

Benmora is a small B&B superbly situated for day-tripping around Orkney, overlooking Kirkwall harbour. The B&B has three rooms, all en suite - two doubles and one twin. All the bedrooms are upstairs in the property. None of the rooms have a view overlooking Kirkwall harbour, but there is a guest lounge, also upstairs, that does have a great view...

Carolyn is very welcoming and makes you feel at home the minute you put your foot in the door. My room had a great view of the harbour and Benmora is within easy walking distance to the town centre and restaurants. My room was spotlessly clean and the little touch of chocolates was most welcome with my cup of tea...

I travel frequently for work and my husband and I also travel often (weekend breaks and long holidays) and this B&B is one of my most favourite places to stay!
