Set in Stromness in the Orkney Islands region, Asgard offers accommodation with free WiFi and free private parking. The bed and breakfast offers a continental or buffet breakfast. The room was fully equipped, there was everything one could need and even more! Showergel and shampoo, lots of towels, hairdryer, biscuits, electric kettle, tea and coffee, a full bottle of water on the nightstand, even a pair of boardgames in the drawer! Dawn and Harald are very kind and helpful, they gave us a few tips on what to do and see around Orkneys and, since we had to leave very early in the morning on the last day, Dawn offered to prepare us breakfast the evening before and leave it in the fridge. They were the most gracious hosts ever!

Offering free WiFi and sea views, Harbour Cottage is an accommodation situated in Stromness. Lovely, cozy cottage looking over the ferry terminal in Stromness. After four weeks on the road, we loved having a very fully equipped kitchen where we could cook food purchased from the grocery about a block away. We took advantage of the washer and drying rack to winnow down the clothes we brought to Orkney for our 4 day trip, and the machine worked beautifully. From the day before we arrived, our host David made himself available for any questions, problems or concerns. While we never met him in person, our questions were supported through quickly responded emails. We greatly appreciated how comfortable this apartment was for us. We spent our days out visiting sites around the islands and welcomed the comfortable recliner sofas and Netflix equipped television with which to relax in the evenings. This apartment was instrumental to how much we liked our first Orkney visit!

Stromness is a lovely little town - very picturesque, but there is not very much to do there, and there are few places to eat in the evening. Because the weather was not great during our stay, we couldn't make our trips to some of the other islands so we took the bus into Kirkwall on a couple of days to find something to do.
Stromness is a really cute town to wander around. It has lots of interesting back streets and buildings to explore. Unfortunately, we didn't try a lot of the places to eat there. We did go to the Stromness hotel for dinner last night. The steak was amazing, but the restaurant was very dated but in a interesting way.
The place is lovely, loads to do during the day, but on an evening apart from the 2 hotels and the Ferry Inn to have something to eat that's it, the local Chinese didn't open even though the opening times said it should have been open, might have been that it was the first wk in September and things were closing down, as our room wasn't one you wanted to stay in to watch TV and wind down, if we ever go again I would go for a house to rent then you have a chair or settee to sit on and watch TV and a table to have a meal on as the Co-op is open till late
Stroll (or drive if you must) off the ferry into the heart of the old town of Stromness - it isn't on the road to anywhere, so it's largely unchanged and full of history. Low cloud and mist is common, but all adds to the almost-Dickensian atmosphere, especially late in the evening as it gets dark. Photographers will find a wealth of detail worth recording - but the streets are narrow and you have to work at framing your shots (also to avoid parked cars, even though these are relatively few, and the ubiquitous wheelie-bins). Get an all-day ticket on the X1 bus (currently £9.30) and you can visit many places of interest (Including St Margaret's Hope, which could be straight out of 'Whisky Galore', the Italian Chapel, the Churchill Barriers and the main Orkney town (City!) of Kirkwall, with it's magnificent cathedral) by hopping on and off as you please.
We were here in September, during a storm main problems lack of dog friendly eating in Stromness, cash machine wasn't working, shops either closed or opened late, so we had to drive to Kirkwall for anything we needed.
It was great for a relaxing stay, very interesting places to visit but a car is essential, the only thing that I didn’t like was the wet and very windy weather, so much so that I had to cut my very short stay short stay short because of high winds going home on the ferry !
The location was perfect for our trip,close to the major sites on the island. The appartment was cosy and clean .
