Although a bit tricky to find the first night in the dark, these apartments are in an excellent location for walking around Kirkwall, catching buses, shopping and dining out. We made good use of the well-equipped kitchen to prepare some meals. The apartment had 2 bedrooms, and would be ideal for couples travelling together or families. Large bathroom was rather chilly, but thermostats in other spaces worked well. The pillows were too hard for our taste, but we used the sofa cushions as pillows after the first night. The clothes washer was a welcome addition, but the settings were not intuitive for me and there wasn’t any documentation to help. No drying cycle that I could find. All in all an excellent place to stay.
Broad street gardens in Kirkwall are truly brilliant as absolutely everything you could possibly need is in the apartments, even a packet of lovely Orkney shortbread. It is the second time we have stayed there and really can't fault it. Spotlessly clean. Everything on your door step. Great food everywhere especially both Indian restaurants so thank you Allison for great accommodation, would certainly recommend to anyone , thanks again as so well organised.
