We booked a ground floor apartment, two bedrooms, a kitchen/living and bathroom. spacious accommodation and very well equipped. We phoned Kay (as advised) when we were going through Stromness and she met us at the apartment. She was very friendly and extremely helpful as we had loads of questions - where do we go to see puffins, sealions, etc. We did manage to see a puffin eventually. The apartment was at Dounby which is in the middle of the main island of The Orkneys which I thought was a good position. I would definitely recommend this apartment and if I visit the Orkneys again I will try and book it again.
Had a really good break in No1 Kringla and everything we wanted and needed was there.Good shops locally and the daily bulletins were helpful. We had snow on the Monday which was unexpected but over our 5 days we really did have every kind of Scottish weather. Really had a great time and on our return would definitely book Kringla again.
From the initial booking, to leaving, Kay made our stay at Kringla 3 welcoming and so comfortable. Bright airy large rooms with views to Hoy in the distance this apartment has everything you could need inside from appliances & well stocked kitchen necessities and in the village a few minutes walk away, shops, post office, pub, craft shops....and more. Ideally situated for exploring Orkneys main attractions. No expense has been spared for comfort and providing everything needed for self catering. I have visited Orkney many times & wont be staying anywhere else. 5* all round.
The apartment is bright and airy. Kay is very welcoming and helpful as well as a fount of local knowledge The apartments at Kringla are great for small parties or, if you need larger accommodation, as I did for a large family visit, all three are ideal as it gives everyone their own space. Centrally located in the quiet village of Dounby, the apartments are a great base for visiting many of the tourist sites on the island.
Kringla is a very comfortable place to stay-everything we needed and more was provided. It is positioned well for visiting archaeological sites in Orkney. Kay gave us a warm welcome-thank you Kay.
We stayed in Kringla apartment C in the first week of July as a family of four - children aged 5 and 7. This was our first trip to Orkney and we found Dounby to be an excellent central location on the island. The Kringla apartment was overall really excellent, well equipped and comfortable and we felt very well looked after across our stay. Plenty of on-site parking too. Overall, highly recommended location.
