Lovely apartment, lovely stay, great location everything perfect apart from the microwave not working
Clean, modern apartment in the centre of Kirkwall. It is well equipped with everything you need and is also a cosy place to come back to after a long day out exploring. The apartment is on the first floor and has views from the living room and one of the bedrooms onto beautiful Tankerness Gardens. A good base for exploring the Mainland and also the other islands, being situated close to the ferry terminals. Definitely recommend!
The apartment was a lovely place to come back to each evening after walking in cold weather. The décor is modern and tasteful and the kitchen well equipped. The two deds were very comfortable and a lot of thought had gone into things like underfloor heating and the provision of a drying room. The location was excellent, easy to walk to anywhere else in town and there were pretty views out of one bedroom and the sitting room. Our party comprised four adults and we never felt overcrowded in the apartment. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return one day.
Apartment 3, with the view of Tankerness Gardens, is spacious, spotless, extremely well equipped, comfortable and warm. (Underfloor heating). It is 2 minutes from the Cathedral, and 5 minutes walk to Tesco or the town centre restaurants, yet really quiet and private. Every detail has been thought of - blackout blinds in the bedrooms, iphone dock, all bedlinen and towels provided, a very well equipped kitchen and a welcome set of tea, coffee, sugar, fresh milk and biscuits. Do look at their website.
The key box system is very good - no need to carry the keys, and if you go out separately, the first person back can get the keys. Although the owners don't need to meet you on arrival, they are very helpful and very quick to respond to queries, so it's not as impersonal as it seems.
We also stayed in Apartment 2. This is identical - just as good. A plus point being on the ground floor, but minus the view of Tankerness Gardens.
Being based in Kirkwall is ideal for touring about, and day trips to other islands. The apartments are just minutes from the bus station and Tourist Information, and there is private parking. I can't recommend them highly enough. Thanks so much, Allison and your team.
