“Excellent base for our Kirkwall trip”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The lodge benefits from a quiet location that is in easy reach of the town centre. We stayed as a group of 3 and it was the perfect base for our visit. The lodge was spacious, well maintained, nicely furnished and very well equipped. The excellent kitchen had a dishwasher, washing machine, coffee machine etc. We were left milk and shortbread for our arrival and tea and coffee was also provided.

The owners are very friendly and happy to help. My wife lost a pendant in Kirkwall during our stay. Christine could not have been more helpful and posted a description on Facebook leading to its safe return.

Highly Recommended.

“Great base for touring, rest, and relaxation”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

High Park Lodges provided us a perfect location to rest, relax, and tour the Orkneys. For those who like scotch, the Highland Park distillery is a short walk. Kirkwall is about a mile distant and a car is useful to get there. A car is also useful to going to Skara Brae, Birsay, Maeshowe, Hoxa Head and more. The flat is very well maintained and stocked and is quiet. We would stay there again when visiting the Orkneys.

“Fantastic Place”

I stayed at number 4 and loved it. I have been visiting Orkney every year for over 25 years and have stayed in lots of different self catering places. This is one of, if not the, best I have ever stayed in. The bedrooms are very comfortable, the kitchen is very well equipped, and the lounge is comfortable. There is a very large screen to in the lounge and smaller TVs in the bedrooms. Orcadian friends visited me and were very impressed.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed in High Park Lodges at the end of July and had a fantastic break there. It is by far the best self catering accommodation we have stayed at, just like home from home. It was extremely well equipped, spacious and very comfortable. The owner Christine was very friendly and welcoming and was available if you needed anything. It was a lovely touch leaving fresh milk and shortbread for our arrival.

The location was good, just on the outskirts of Kirkwall right next to the Highland Park Distillery so it was very quiet but the town centre was only a few minutes drive away.

I would definitely recommend High Park Lodges to anyone wishing to self cater in Kirkwall.

Me and my family liked the lodge a lot! It was very cofortable and had a good equipment in the kitchen. We enjoyed the stay a lot and it's not so far away from Kirkwall (if you have a car).
I would defenitely stay there again!

We stayed at the lodge over the Christmas- new year break. When we arrived it was late & dark but the lodge was so welcoming, Christine had put a christmas tree up which my daughter loved( great touch) it was very warm and she'd left milk & biscuits for us too. The lodges are spotlessly clean & excellently equipped a real home from home. There was nothing we didn't want for. I would highly recommend these lodges if you ever visit Kirkwall. Christine was very nice and on hand if we needed anything which we did have a panic when our ferry was cancelled for 1 day but she quickly reassured us that we could stay on for as long as we needed, this took the stress out of our delay straight away. We will definitely stay here again if we visit Orkney. *****

“Clean, spacious and well furnished lodges!”
Reviewed October 25, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at the High Park Lodges as a group of 4. They were immaculate, well furnished, and really spacious. We were left milk and shortbread for our arrival which was a nice touch! There was also tea, coffee etc provided. Facilities were great and it was about a 20 minute walk downhill to the town - or a 5 minute taxi which cost about £4. Christine was really helpful and friendly. Great stay!
