My brother and I both very much enjoyed our recent stay in here. It was a lovely, comfortable base for exploring the town and further afield.

The arrangements were very smooth, and the look and feel of the house was very warm and welcoming. 2 minutes walk from central Kirkwall, and 30 seconds from the waterfront, so it was a great location too.

“Good location and comfortable”

Near to the centre of Kirkwall, this makes it a convenient base for exploring the Orkneys. Short walk to main shopping area, so easy for going out in the evening.
The house is comfortable and quite compact, though not as cosy as it could be, and there are no good views from the Windows.
My husband couldn't sit on the downstairs toilet as insufficient leg room, and he did bash his head a fair bit on the low ceilings!

“Excellent Value for money”
Reviewed February 24, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A fantastic little house right in the centre of Kirkwall
The inside was clean, tidy and in good repair.
The owners were helpful and responsive.
It was cheaper than a hotel and it gave us more freedom.
Would definitely book 19 St Catherines again.

There were 5 of us staying here, aged 20+ to 70+ and it was great for us. The lounge and kitchen are a good size with a toilet on the ground floor and upstairs were 3 bedrooms. Everything was provided, thank you for the welcome pack! It was spotlessly clean and comfortable and modern. You have done a great job of renovating this old property. It retains it's old character. It is handy with the town centre. The only negative point was the noise of traffic outside. I would recommend this property.

Thank you for your overall rating of EXCELLENT it?s great to hear that you enjoyed you stay and would recommend 19 St Catherine's Place.
The luxury of being so close to the town centre, with the bars, restaurants and shops being within a 2 minute walk, means that there is road noise outside, although this is mainly through the day. I hope to welcome you to Orkney again.

“A warm Orcadian welcome awaits in Kirkwall”

This is exemplary accommodation in a great location in Kirkwall, a very close walk to the city centre and harbour side. Unprepossessing from the outside, but when you enter the decoration and furnishings are excellent. All the necessary items to make for a comfortable stay are provided. A group of us rented 19 St Catherines Place over a long weekend, and would have been very pleased if the stay had been longer. My friend would quite happily have moved in to live! Deborah deserves a lot of credit for getting everything so right about this place. I would certainly recommend it, and if I am lucky enough to return to Orkney I will stay there again.
