As Kirkwall is a small town, anywhere you stay is convenient. This apartment is situated on the outskirts of the town. It was very cozy and clean. All the amenities were there that you would want or need in a home away from home situation. The owners were available anytime you would need them, which we didn't, but had an opportunity to chat with them while there; super-friendly Orcadians! The apartment is suitable for disabled people as there are no steps and they even have a ramp for the extremely small step up to patio. It was super quiet too. I stayed there with my 85-year old mother and aunt: it was perfect for the three of us. There are two separate bedrooms which accommodated them nicely, while I slept on a very comfortable portable bed in the living room. I would not hesitate to stay here again if my travels bring me back to Orkney!
Very clean and welcoming accommodation a short distance from centre of Kirkwall. Modern interior with good quality furnishings and fixtures which are well maintained. Friendly owners happy to help and advise if required or if preferred give space . Two lovely bathrooms with excellent showers . Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend staying here .
This apartment on the outskirts of Kirkwall is a total delight. It's easy to walk or drive into town - plenty of free parking - and in the other direction you have a lovely walk to the beach or the distilleries.
The apartment itself is beautiful, with everything provided. I always go with a box of essentials when we are self-catering, as we have on occasion found no soap and had to go and buy foil, clingfilm etc. Christine and Colin have thought of everything, and that was very impressive. There was a nice welcome pack of goodies when we arrived, and plenty of advice and guidance if we needed it.
We could have stayed much longer than a week, and I'm sure we will return, certainly to Wayward Apartment.
Myself and my friend have just come back from spending a few days here, we couldn't of asked for anything more it was perfect, beds were comfy clean and fresh bedding, whole apartment was clean and tidy, Colin and Christine were very friendly and helpful. Very accessible for anyone with disability issues. We will definitely be booking again.
Wonderfull apartement, very clean and spacious. Everything you may need is in it s place. perfect for two couples. Just 15 minutes on foot to the center of kirwall.
Highly recommend this apartment. It was BRILLIANT! Very clean and was like a home from home. The owner is very helpful and kind. Definitely coming next year!
We stayed for a week in June 2016, having travelled up for the Jutland commemoration. The apartment was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. It is in a great location on the edge of town, with a 15min walk into the centre of Kirkwall with its lively pubs and restaurants if you don't want to take the car. The owners are kind and very helpful if you need it - and low profile if you don't! We would highly recommend.
