“Wonderful stay at Riff Cottage”
Reviewed August 11, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed at Riff cottage for a week absolutely lovely,
Greig and Lesley the owners of the cottage were so welcoming. It's been like a home from home would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to holiday here. And they left some goodies on arrival for us, which again was so thoughtful. If there was an option for more than five stars would definitely have selected it, and we will be coming back to stay again. Lovely people lovely place

“Perfect pet friendly cottage.”

Have just returned after an idyllic week at Riff Cottage in Orkney. We were welcomed by the owner on arrival to a clean, wonderful cottage located 100 yards from the water. Lovely quiet location for a stress free holiday. Ideally located for all major tourist attractions. The pet friendly property has a fully enclosed front garden. Owner provided a lovely local food hamper which was unexpected. The property has everything in it that you need. Mobile phone reception reasonable but this is only to be expected on the island. The bonus was the property had good free wifi and tv in lounge had netflix, albeit not necessary as weather was so good there was too much to do outside rather than watch tv and work on laptops. Great stress free week away from social media and emails. The Orkney Brewery, Skara Brae, Brough of Birsay and Broch of Gurness all worth a visit but top attraction was Ring of Brodgar. Can't wait to visit Orkney again and would definitely stay in the same cottage. Thanks again Greg (the owner) for making the 3 of us so welcome.
