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.

Wonderful stay in a wonderful apartment. Well situated to walk into town for a meal in the evenings. Quiet and peaceful location with stunning scenery. Loved the opportunity to sit outside in private surroundings.

My husband and I stayed at The Lodge at Orkney Villas for the first week of our honeymoon. The welcome from Lynne on arrival was great and the apartment just wonderful. All newly refurbished with underfloor heating and all the mod cons you could wish for plus a beautifully equipped kitchen and lovely spacious rooms. Only minor down side was... More

From the moment you walk in the door, you know it's going to be a dream break. Open plan living, eating, cooking area. The whole room worked really well. Kitchen was better equipped than home. Big bedroom with huge bed. Bit hard for me but that's just me. Plenty of space for 2 to get dressed without getting in the... More

Lovely conversion of old buildings, modern and very well fitted out interior done with style. Very comfortable. Extremely well equipped. The apartment we stayed in didn't have wireless over the whole apartment but this is being addressed we understand. Otherwise no faults to find at all and standard of everything in apartment exceeded our expectations from rating and price. Owners... More
