Nice base for exploring an island with lots of interesting features. Comfortable and clean with decent food . Breakfast was excellent. Lovely views out to sea. Well worth an overnight stay - there wouldn't be enough time on a day trip to see everything on Rousay.

Hi Carolsinging, At present The Taversoe is undergoing some building work. We are hoping to be open at the beginning of May this year and will have a room with a double bed and a single bed. On the nights you have enquired we do have availability. I hope this answer is helpful to your holiday plans. Looking forward to hearing from you, and maybe meeting you all in the future. Many thanks, x
