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.

Perfect stay in Kirkwall for our large family
We're a family of 5 spending a week in Kirkwall, so we needed plenty of space, a kitchen and laundry. The Broadstreet Townhouse provided all of that. It has easy walkable access to everything in Kirkwall. The property manager was more than responsive: it turned out the dryer was on the fritz. When we told them about it, within a day, they had a brand new dryer installed which worked perfectly. If you have a large family, need clean, modern accommodations and want to have access to all Kirkwall has to offer, look no further!

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.
