We stayed at the High Park Lodges no.2 for 4 nights last week, as we were in Orkney for a family wedding. On arrival the lodge was open, so we were able to just go in and get unpacked. The owner visited us shortly after to check we had settled in ok and she was very friendly. The lodge was very nice, clean and spacious. It had everything you needed from a washing machine to dishwasher to iron to outside decking area. The lodges are ideally located just next to the brewery and only a few minutes’ drive from Kirkwall town centre. The curtains in the front room unfortunately let in the light, so the room was bright from early on. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.
Excellent accommodation. Very clean and tidy. Nice quiet location with easy access by car to all locations. C'ant fault it
Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Kitchen and bathroom at a high standard. Could do with an en suite bathroom in one of the bedrooms,otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
We arrived and the lodge was clean, tidy and cosy (it was very wintry outside!), there were nice extra touches like milk in the fridge, coffee, tea, biscuits and various cleaning products to save us having to go and buy them. Kids loved staying there too! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the lodges, in fact we will likely come and stay again!
Lovely comfortable chalet. Great location for a stay in Orkney. Although on the outskirts of town, it is not far by car. You need a car in Orkney. The owners have thought of everything you might need for your stay. Will definitely revisit if/when returning to the island
The high park lodges are located closely to the highland park distillery and close to the entrance of the area of highland park house. The owner is nice and helpful, in particular if you arrive late at the Orkney islands. In our case, the lodge was heated and felt so cozy (after a long day of driving) - also the additional heater in the bathroom was contributing to this feeling. The lodge consists of a living room with flat screen TV, a kitchen, a bathroom and two bedrooms - all very clean. The interior style is rather modern (positive). The kitchen is well equipped and spacey. We really enjoyed our stay there as a basis for various trips on the Orkneys. It was also very helpful for us to book for just some days rather than a full week (as it is common in most places).
we stayed three nights at the high park lodge #4. it´s pretty new and in a very good condition. beds are comfortable, kitchen has whatever you need, and washing machine and dryer allowed the first "reconditioning" of our clothing. especially the living room gave us nice rests after the long days on the island. groceries is easy at tesco close to the city centre. fresh fish was not so easy to get - "jollys of orkney" have a shop in an industrial area 5 mins from tesco, and also offer their products in a shop in the city (pedestrian area). highland distillery is next door - so a tsating can be done without needing the car. we found the location at the city border very nice and quiet - some people might prefer a place closer to or in the centre of kirkwall if you don´t cook on your own. coming back to the orkneys we would always choose the cottages again!!
