Over the years, my husband and I have stayed in a number of self catering accommodations but Orkney Villas was by far the most thoughtfully equipped and furnished! Everything you could possibly need is provided and after over a week of eating out every night, it was wonderful to pick up some meat pies and the makings for a salad... More

Very pleasant accommodation; certainly warm and good facilities. Lovely shower room and great kitchen diner. Large living room for two. Bedroom a little oppressive and bed not so comfortable for me. No view but just 15 mins walk from town.

We stayed in a wonderful self catering appartment in Craigiefield House. We visited Orkney for the first time with another couple and the apartment was ideal for our needs for this short break. The owner was most helpful in showing us round and providing information about what to see and where to eat.

A lovely house in a great location. Very comfortable and well equipped. Beds were extremely comfortable. Owners offered airport pick up which was super. Very friendly and even gave a big bag of toys to our three year old for the week!

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...
