We stayed in Kingston House. Ideally located within easy walking distance of the centre of Kirkwall. The house was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. The helpful but not intrusive owners kindly provided a lovely welcome hamper containing local produce. Parking though not on site is available a very short distance away in a nearby street. A superb property that... More

What a great place right in the heart of Kirkwall. Located on Victoria Street just behind the cathedral. Beautiful accommodation, modern, clean and incredibly spacious, we stayed in Kingston House which was perfect for a family of 5 but big enough for more. The owners were extremely attentive but not intrusive, the welcome hamper was really kind with lots of... More

John and Hazel could not have done more to look after us for our holiday in Orkney. Quality of accommodation is right up there with the very best, and location in the centre of Kirkwall is ideal (not noisy though). If you get the weather here is an added bonus, but certainly this is now my 'go to' place for... More

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay here. We were a party consisting of 3 families with small children plus granny and we fitted perfectly into the House and the Lodge. We shared the House garden. It was perfect for the children and had a sunny deck with seating for the adults to supervise from a safe distance. The beds were... More

once you walk through the front door of this very deceptive cottage you are amazed with the room inside. A huge lounge with a wood burning stove with an attached shower room and on the other side a modern kitchen complete with skylights. Upstairs is a large bedroom and a bathroom complete with a spa bath and up another set... More

We arrived in Orkney having travelled up the East coast of Scotland visiting some of Moonface's relatives & were enormously looking forward to our week on the island. I had seen photos of the house prior to booking & when we arrived, it was even better than we could have hoped for. The place was immaculately clean & we had... More

Fantastic central location, able to walk to restaurants,shops and sights. We stayed in the bothy the first night (just due to our arrival dates clashing with a previous booking) and moved... More

Just back from a trip to Kirkwall where we were lucky enough to find Hazel & John's self catering accommodation. We stayed in Kingston Lodge,one of their four properties,it is located on a quiet street but is very central to all amenities. The photos on the website look great but still don't do the property justice! Very tastefully furnished to... More

We stayed with our baby at Kingston Lodge for a week in September. The location is perfect, with lcoal amenities within easy walk. The house is equipped with everything you could need. It was clean and beautifully finished. A guest guide would have been helpful with instructions etc for the house and some info about the surrounding area, but apart... More
