Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Perfect for our short break in Orkney !
Superb location in the centre of Kirkwall. Perfect for the two of us. There was an allocated parking spot for this particular apartment just out side of the front door, but someone else was parked in it for our entire stay. This is just a comment, not a complaint, as there was additional free parking near by which we used instead.

L'appartamento era in posizione centralissima; pulitissimo e con tutti i confort; soltanto qualche problema per arrivare, nonostante il navigator, a destinazione, mancando una precisazione quanto all'esatta ubicazione. A me è stata d'aiuto una gentilissima persona del luogo, che ci ha condotto all'indirizzo e poi l'altrettanto vicino che iccupava l'appartamento sovrastante. Grazie e ciao
