Two colleagues and I spent last week on Orkney working on the pipe organ at Kirkwall Cathedral. We stayed at Hildeval with Gerry and Shirley and had a very pleasant time. We were all made to feel very welcome in their home and they did all they could to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Gerry was able...

This B&B is spacious and gracious. Gerry and Shirley go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I stayed for 3 weeks and felt I was part of their family. Rooms are lovely and the guest dining room/lounge has an amazing view. It is a nice walk to city center where the are excellent places to eat. All...

Read all the reviews they all say the same and I can't add anything this is great b and b, I agree with everything that has been said. My concern before going was location out of town, it was ideal, a ten minute walk into town and a stroll up the hill home which even I managed with my 'wonky'...

I was here for two nights as part of a Rabbie's tour and had an excellent stay. I booked a single and it was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The very modern bathroom was a welcome surprise! Breakfast was lovely and the lounge had great views over Kirkwall. The hosts were wonderful and I loved the dogs.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my two night stay at Hildeval. Homey well appointed rooms, top of the line showers, ocean views to die for and the loveliest hosts you could ever ask for. The breakfasts were hot and ready when you wanted them and there was always lots to eat. Thank you Shirley and Gerry...

To our surprise the very first thing our hostess did when we arrived was dash off and return with a bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary - what a wonderfully thoughtful welcome! Everything was great - the bed was comfy & the room large and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious with a range of options...

Comfortable bed, large room, and good bathroom. Gerry and Ingrid (who served us breakfast) were very friendly and anxious to please. We arrived quite late off the ferry from Shetland, and Gerry had left our keys, room assignment and breakfast menus out ready for us. Only issue we had was finding the place since it isn't technically on the street...

We enjoyed our stay at Hildeval B & B in Kirkwall. The bed was enormous and rather dominated the room, leaving little space for bags etc. The bathroom was modern and served our needs well. The lounge/breakfast-room upstairs was a bonus and the only place wifi would work. The view to the harbour was magnificent. This B & B is...
