We had a great stay at the Orkney Villas. The apartment was beautiful and spacious, and provided us with everything we needed. The hosts were very helpful, Craig picked us up at the bus-station when we arrived.

We found it particularly useful -- since we had opted not to have a car -- to be met by the Community bus at the Ferry terminal. The bus took us directly to our doorsteps, where Jacqueline was there to welcome us, and showed us around the property. The house itself is spacious; it has a well-appointed kitchen. We liked...

A genuine welcome awaited with plenty recommendations of places to eat out and attractions to visit. The property is in an excellent location only a short distance outside Kirkwall, only about a 3 minute drive from the town centre, though it's also easily walkable. It's within easy access of all routes around mainland Orkney. We stayed as a couple and... More

This was our second stay here as it is very convenient for Kirkwall but away from any town noise. The walk to town is scenic. The Courtyard has an excellent kitchen, comfortable beds and the place is kept very clean. A second bathroom is currently being created. We would definitely go back

Very nice accommodation and very friendly and helpful hosts. The apartment was very well appointed and clean with everything you might need. Heating was good with plenty of hot water. Slight downside was rather variable wi-fi (but we can live without that) and no view from The Lodge but you just had to walk outside and you are by the... More

Had a lovely stay in Orkney villas. The apartment was lovely and had a nice view of the sea. Lynne and Craig who own the apartment are a lovely couple and willing to help if needed. Would definitely recomend this as a place to stay.

From the moment we arrived we knew that we had picked a superb place to stay on Orkney. The Courtyard more than fulfilled our requirements, and Lynn kindly ran through how everything worked. From our lounge there was a lovely view across the bay, and it was very relaxing just watching the boats go by. Everything is provided and the... More

We stayed in The Steadings for 8 nights in May whilst enjoying Orkney and the surrounding islands. We carried on to experience the annual folk festival which we had pre booked and for which the accommodation was ideally suited. The accommodation is a high spec barn type conversion, very comfortable and with all the mod cons situated along an access... More

We found Orkney Villas was a great place to stay. They are about a half mile walk from the centre of Kirkwall along the coast. The walk into Kirkwall was lovely on a nice day but there is a regular bus service into the centre if you don’t fancy the walk. The flat we stayed in had lounge and kitchen... More

Comfortable and relaxing, the Steading , indoors, gave me everything I would want from a place to stay. Outside, the lack of a view (so trapped indoors on a rainy day could be grim) was a shame and also lack of somewhere to sit outside with an evening drink, again a bit of a disappointment. But overall, otherwise, excellent!
