  • The Bellavista is a 5 minute car journey out the centre of Kirkwall. The rooms are warm (visiting in November) and comfortable and have plenty of facilities (aircon/heating, tea/coffee/hot chocolate). Sandra is very helpful and can accommodate any request. Her breakfast is also superb. Really good full Scottish with good produce. I would highly recommend the Bellavista.“
