Excellent facilities
Excellent property. Very clean and well appointed. I was using it as a key worker during lockdown so the ability to cook my own meals was very useful. Washing machine also a useful addition. Good communication from the owners and the key safe system worked well. Good central location in Kirkwall and easy to find. Would definitely recommend.

This place was exactly what I needed for my 3+ week stay in Kirkwall. It was conveniently located, had parking, was equipped with everything that I needed and was excellently serviced. I would most definitely stay here again.
