My only regret is that we only booked a short break. House had everything we needed especially comfy beds. Plenty to do in Kirkwall and house in great location for shops, bars and restaurants.
Hopefully will be back again in the future and for longer next time.
Fantastic place to stay. Spotless on arrival. Great location just walking distance to everything. Thanks so much
The Smiddy has everything you could wish for in a holiday let, well equipped and a great location for touring Orkney or going for a stroll around Kirkwall. Christine was always quick to respond to any query we had. All round an excellent place to stay and one of the best we've been to over many years of self catering holidays.
Beutiful big clean house. As you can see in pics well equipped with everything you need from jacuzzi fancy showers to nice big kitchen dining and jukebox in living room. Location perfect 2mins walk if that and you was on to shops and bars and cafes etc. Christine and Malcky were very helpful and accomdating to our needs.
We was up for Wedding at St Magnus Cathedral so had 6 of us staying in house for 3 nights as three couples so was really good as every couple had bedroom and one room was en suite but the other 2 bedrooms had bathroom next door so each couple had there on bathroom and space so perfect.
Price we found be superb if you manage find anything cheaper and better than Smiddy id be very surprised
Thanks again Christine and Malcky for a wonderful stay we had a lovely wedding and great time in Orkney!
The Smiddy is well located for central Kirkwall, the ferry port and the main roads out of town to the many mainland tourist attractions. There is also a Co-op supermarket open until 10.00 pm within a couple minutes walk. The house is clean, beautifully decorated with various bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi style shower/bath), spacious dining area and upstairs a large sitting room with wide screen TV and jukebox. Parking area out front. Generous welcoming basket of various types of biscuits and other goodies. Christine was very helpful with the details of our stay. If you are a group of six or seven persons, you may find cheaper accomodation in Kirkwell, but I doubt you will find better!
Very nice place to stay in great location. Walk to everything. Very clean. It met our family's needs perfectly. Highly recommended.
My family of six stayed in The Smiddy for two nights this summer. It was one of the nicest places we stayed over our 6 weeks in the UK. Everything was spotless. The kitchen was really well equipped. There were some local cheese and oatcakes and biscuits left for us on arrival, which was lovely because it was a long day on busses and ferries to get there. It was easy to find from the bus station, and though we never met her, the owner was very responsive via text and everything was organized and easy to manage.
