The Apartment was beautifully decorated, spacious, and provided us with everything we needed. The hosts were amazing, and greeted us with the warmest welcome. The apartment is conveniently located on the out skirts of town, making it very quiet, but still sloe enough to walk into town. Would definitely visit again.

The Steading is just outside Kirkwall only 5 minutes from the ferry terminal. Lynne, our host was very welcoming despite us arriving late in the evening. She showed us around the villa, explaining the facilities clearly. The accommodation is very clean and in excellent condition. There was a good selection of breakfast provisions left for us. There were lots of... More

The service Lynne and Craig provide is excellent. We were made to feel at home. The accommodation was excellent, very nicely decorated and furnished very tastefully. The accommodation was within walkable distance of centre of Kirkwall - about 10-15 minute walk. Orkney is an ideal place to visit if you like archaeology. There is so much to see and do.... More

Excellent self catering accommodation within walking distance of Kirkwall and a great base for touring the islands. Not a great view from the window but the spa bath is a treat after a day out. Friendly greeting when you arrive and shown round the villa. They also have a wealth of knowledge of the local area.

The Lodge at Orkney Villas is exactly what you want from a self-catering cottage. Immaculately clean, with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishings, quiet and perfectly located to explore the Orkneys.

We had a great stay at the Orkney Villas. The apartment was beautiful and spacious, and provided us with everything we needed. The hosts were very helpful, Craig picked us up at the bus-station when we arrived.

We found it particularly useful -- since we had opted not to have a car -- to be met by the Community bus at the Ferry terminal. The bus took us directly to our doorsteps, where Jacqueline was there to welcome us, and showed us around the property. The house itself is spacious; it has a well-appointed kitchen. We liked...

A genuine welcome awaited with plenty recommendations of places to eat out and attractions to visit. The property is in an excellent location only a short distance outside Kirkwall, only about a 3 minute drive from the town centre, though it's also easily walkable. It's within easy access of all routes around mainland Orkney. We stayed as a couple and... More

This was our second stay here as it is very convenient for Kirkwall but away from any town noise. The walk to town is scenic. The Courtyard has an excellent kitchen, comfortable beds and the place is kept very clean. A second bathroom is currently being created. We would definitely go back
