We were met by Craig, the owner, and shown around the property. Very clean with everything we needed for our three night stay available. Asked for dishwasher tabs and they arrived shortly after asking. Very helpful. The bed/bed linen/duvet were of high quality and great nights sleep had. Our kids loved their twin room with the shared shower/sauna/toilet room. I... More

My father and I stayed here and found this to be a great apartment. It is a 20 minute walk to the main Kirkwall township depending on your pace. The two floor apartment we used was clean with all the things you would have at home, dishwasher, washing machine, full kitchen, living room, dining area and two bedrooms with conjoined... More

The apartment was wonderful. Really clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was a real home from home and we found it superb. Everything was provided from towels to a tablet for the dishwasher. Very thoughtfully and great attention to detail. The views from the upstairs lounge are really gorgeous, facing West you get the full beauty of the sunset over... More

We stayed in no.1 The Steading, and it was a very comfortable and excellently equipped base for our stay in Kirkwall. The bed was large and comfortable (and not bouncy! a vital criteria), the living space was fitted out to a high standard and the whirlpool bath was great fun. It was also a really nice conversion of an old... More

A well presented home from home, 20mins walk from Kirkwall centre. Apartment is very well appointed & nothing was lacking. As steading is at back of house, view was minimal but beach only 2 mins away!

Absolutely satisfying in every way. For our family of 4 we had four large rooms with gorgeous views, a complete kitchen, a sauna, comfortable beds, just outside Kirkwall, so very convenient. Even a cupboard full of books and games...

We wanted to find a nice self catering accommodation in Orkney so that if the weather was bad we would have a"home from home". The steading was finished and furnished to a high standard, a little smaller but not too different in standard to our Hilton timeshares. The owners were helpful and welcoming, and really seemed to enjoy having guests... More

This was our first trip to Orkney. I am pleased to say that the quality of the accommodation was instrumental in allowing us to enjoy a very positive experience. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The living-room/lounge was spacious, as was the kitchen/dining-area which had every amenity necessary. The bed was perfect, being located within a bedroom which was equipped... More

The Lodge at Orkney Villas is a stylish comfortable modern property about 20 minutes' walk (along the sea front) from the centre of Kirkwall. The kitchen is well-equipped, the rooms a good size, and the wifi connection works well. For our party, the connecting corridor to the Steadings meant we could come and go without going outside. The owners, like... More

The Steading that my wife and I stayed in for 3 nights was absolutely excellent. The quality of the barn conversion is superb, every amenity is provided and the standard of the fixtures and fittings in the kitchen and bathroom is 5 star. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the location is perfect for any stay on Orkney.
