We really enjoyed our stay at Navnlos Hus. The house was really spacious and it was so nice to have three bathrooms/shower rooms. The kitchen had every utensil you could need-it was like a home from home. Navnlos is situated in a great location for getting around the island with a number of sandy beaches situated nearby.Sheila met us upon arrival with the keys and was really helpful. I would recommend this property to anyone wishing to stay on the Orkney's.
Orkney can be of course somewhat wet and windy, so we were fortunate to have brilliant sun for most of the time we were there - you can't beat it . The sea visible from the house was blue and sparkling , and because the Italian Chapel is visible and in walking distance , we could time our own visits to avoid the tour buses and their crowds ! The house was really comfortable , clean and fresh feeling , with plenty of space upstairs and down for the clan to spread out . Plenty of parking and accessible by public transport too, if you are prepared to walk from the bus stop. . Very well supplied with kitchen equipment , not to mention the hairdryer in every bedroom . Ample storage everywhere . Sheila was very warm and extremely helpful when we asked about our particular needs .
Although the Hus is not specifically set up as a disabled friendly house , the downstairs wet room was a big plus in booking this accommodation for our group , and the addition of a couple of grab handles would enhance its marketability further .
It would be good to take advantage of the constant wind by having somewhere to hang the washing up outside - yes , even if there's a bit of rain ! And on sunny days , a designated space to sit out and enjoy the rays would be fabulous .
Orkney is a tremendous location for an offbeat holiday - rugged, wild, quirky; but still with all the conveniences of modern life. This is a really superior house in a great area, with amazing views, great accommodation and with a really homely feel. Highly recommended.
Had a fantastic time at Navnlos Hus, very very well equipped house, modern and excellent place to stay and return to for a cosy night after exploring Orkney for the day. Could not find any fault and would highly recommend to anyone
