Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

In the heart of orkney
The apartment is ideally placed minutes from st Magnus cathedral in Kirkwall. It is spacious modern and extremely well equipped. Delightful place to return to at the end of the day warm and comfortable. We will be back next year

holiday in orkney
this is a very nice and well appointed flat on the first floor; good location in town centre of kirkwall with easy parking and convenient for walking around the town, close to st magnus and most of the restaurants; the flat is spacious and well equipped and we can recommend it; ( i am not convinced the heating was working properly and the boiler was a bit noisy but this did not impact on what was a very enjoyable stay

Lovely, comfortable, well appointed, new apartment, quiet but conveniently situated for the centre of town.
Most pleasant stay in this peaceful apartment which is very close to the centre of Kirkwall. Very well equipped, clean and still a new feel to it all. No significant negatives although inevitably, the view from one of the bedrooms is not of scenic Orkney! Pay careful attention to the instruction for access to the car park when arriving first time.

Perfect location in Kirkwall
We stayed in this 1st floor apartment for a week and it suited us perfectly. The apartment was very new and the furniture and furnishings were lovely. The living room and one of the bedrooms looks out onto the very pretty Tankerness Gardens. The apartment is 5 mins or less from the shops, supermarkets, library, information centre and bus station. The only negative comment I have is that the TV in the living room was really small and fixed to the wall and we couldn't move it.

About the neighbourhood
Less than five minutes walk from Kirkwall bus station and tourist and travel information centre. Kirkwall Pier is the ferry terminal for the North Isles and is also less than 5 minutes walk away. Because the apartment is so central you are in walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars etc. If you plan to get out of town to visit all the amazing sites and attractions Orkney has to offer we recommend a car for flexibility but it is also do-able with public transport.
