She is warm and friendly and was very accommodating to my sisters and my HFI - food intolerance - and went out of her way to ensure she didn't give us anything we couldn't eat. She gave us lots of information about how to find places and spots of interest and was very happy for us to come and go...

We stayed for two nights at Brinkies Guest House and we could not recommend it more highly. The crucial ingredient is the owner, Yvonne, who wants to ensure that every person has the perfect Orkney experience. She is flawlessly generous, warm, and welcoming. She is flexible with check-in times, full of wonderful advice, and will help you plan your trip....

Stayed for 3 nights. Walked up from ferry ( after a really calm crossing ) which was interesting in the fading light. Yvonne was very welcoming and makes great breakfasts. Our room was really comfortable and was a good size. The Orkney platters set us up for the day. Walking over the Brae into Stromness is a brilliant view. Thanks...

We recently spent 3 nights at the Guest House and enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The location is convenient to all locations on Mainland you may want to visit and within Stromness itself, it is a short footwalk to the center of town. Location is peaceful and quiet with a great view over Stromness and to the Isle of...

We walked from the ferry to Brinkie's pretty late in the evening, but Yvonne was waiting for us. Our room was warm and lovely. Breakfast both mornings was so good, and Yvonne explained all the different cheeses and breads for us. The view was fabulous, too! I would highly recommend this B&B.

Excellent location overlooking Stromness, Scapa Flow and peaks of Hoy island. Lovely host and best breakfast on Orkney (local smoked delicacies, including smoked Brie ! An easy walk down the hill to Stromness for an evening meal and unfettered access to Orkney inland or coastal walking. I would definitely return.

Oh, I can't wait to return to Brinkies! I loved my stay in Orkney and Brinkies set the tone. A fabulous, friendly host, breath-taking views, comfortable and well appointed room. I loved sampling the various Orcadian treats Yvonne had assembled for our breakfasts each morning, it was clear she is (quite rightly) proud of the Islands' top quality fresh produce....

Could only stay one night as we had to leave for home. Excellent room with wonderful rooms. Comfortable, clean, fresh milk with the tea/coffe in the room and welcoming owner who made us a packed lunch the next day as we had to leave early for the ferry.

We stayed at Brinkies Guest House for two nights, our room was spotless and very comfortable with beautiful views of Hoy in the distance. Yvonne went out of her way to welcome us, she was very knowledgeable of the Islands and suggested many places to visit. The traditional Orkney breakfast was delicious with an excellent selection of fruit, cereal, yoghurts,...
