“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016
person found this review helpful

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.
