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.

Mr
The apartment was bright, spacious and well furnished. There were all the mod-cons you would expect. It was just 5 minutes to the harbour, and even less to the town centre. There are 3 supermarkets nearby, less than a 10 minute walk. Being located just off one of the main arteries into Kirkwall made for easy access to the rest of the island. All round a superb apartment in an ideal location. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

September visit.
Centrally located. Clean. Comfortable. Well equipped and spacious. A problem with the lock box was promptly sorted out by the friendly staff. Improvements could be providing little things like salt and pepper and soap and shampoo. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Great location, well equipped apartment
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.

Kirkwall apartment
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. 👍👍😂

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.
