We stayed Apartment 1 for two nights during our visit to Orkney. John met us with a key and was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was perfect and in a fantastic location, steps from shops, restaurants, and St Magnus Cathedral. Highly recommended!

We stayed here in the summer and have to say it's a lovely house. Fixtures and furnishings are first class. It could not be handier for the town centre, but still manages to stay secluded. 1 ensuite bath & shower and two public shower rooms/wc, all with Orkney soap products provided. The huge attic bedroom is the jewel in the...

I recently stayed at Kingston Lodge with 4 friends for a week. The experience was excellent. The cottage has been re-furbished to a high standard with a well fitted kitchen, large living room, 2 bathrooms and 2 double rooms all spread over 3 floors. The central location provided easy walking access to the main shopping area and the main historical...

At Kingston House, all rooms are clean and tidy & very well kept. The welcome pack was very yummy and a good introduction to the foodie delights of Orkney. The house is very comfortable, with modern heating, cooking, washing and cooling facilities. The garden is large with outdoor table and chairs. Overall a really great place to stay in Kirkwall.

We booked Scapa View House for 3 nights over the weekend so as to visit family. The house itself is well equipped, and in a good location. It's not clear from the photographs but the house is semi detached and located next to the main road into Kirkwall. That said the house is of such a standard that you cannot...

Spent five nights here. Great house, exceptionally well appointed and superb location - we easily walked everywhere in the town. 4 minutes walk to Lidl for fresh croissants for breakfast. Only negative was knives which would not cut warm butter!

Four of us stayed in apartment #2, which we used as a base to explore the Main Land of Orkney. The apartment is situated 5 minutes walk from St Magus cathederal, the centre of Kirkwall, so all the main attractions and amenities of Kirkwall are conveniently close at hand. Even the Highland Park distillery on the edge of town is...
