“Clean, spacious and well furnished lodges!”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at the High Park Lodges as a group of 4. They were immaculate, well furnished, and really spacious. We were left milk and shortbread for our arrival which was a nice touch! There was also tea, coffee etc provided. Facilities were great and it was about a 20 minute walk downhill to the town - or a 5 minute taxi which cost about £4. Christine was really helpful and friendly. Great stay!

“Very clean and comfortable self catering house in Kirkwall”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family of four found this two bedroom house to be very comfortable and clean. Located on the outskirts of Kirkwall, it is an easy drive into town, (or a longer walk) and is quiet. We enjoyed watching the sun set behind the Highland Park distillery and waking to the sounds of horses. The kitchen was well supplied and exceeded our expectations.

Just returned from our first visit to Orkney. Stayed in lodge no 3 with my husband, son (14), daughter (11) and our dog. As in previous reviews, the accommodation is of a very high standard- immaculate and with every need catered for. They are in a brilliant location - right next door to the Highland Park Distillery and the (also very good) Lynnfield Hotel - great if you want to eat out (we did - see separate review). We walked into and back from Kirkwall just the once and it was no problem - about 20 mins each way. Christine was lovely - very welcoming and the milk and biscuits were a real treat when we arrived! The bonus for us was being able to take our dog and although the outside garden area to the back was not big enough to give her any exercise, it was adequate for the dog's needs in the morning and evening and we were out most of the time enjoying the Island anyway. There is a deck to the front which was lovely on a sunny evening which we were lucky enough to have a couple of. I would certainly recommend this accommodation and would book it again if we ever return to Orkney .

“Immaculate accommodation ideally located for exploring Orkney”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I have stayed in Orkney before, but never in a rental property of such high standard and so perfectly located.

High Park Lodges are of a comfortable size, immaculately presented and everything inside is fresh and new. All considerations have been made: the house is stocked with ample towels, cutlery, crockery and there is even milk in the fridge for your arrival!

House has a washing machine/tumble dryer - this was an essential for me, as walking in boggy grounds or getting caught in rain makes having the dryer an essential! There is also free Wifi, which was a bonus as most places around Orkney don't have this.

The lodges are on the periphery of the town, it's not very far to walk into the town centre, and there is a lovely farm track walk around the back of the nearby Distillery (the lodges are in Kirkwall but still in quite secluded and quiet location). The Lynn Park Hotel is nearby, but this is still a quiet place to relax when indoors.

The owners were lovely and welcoming and very helpful. I will definitely be coming back to stay here again the next time I visit Orkney, and I would definitely recommend High Park Lodges to anyone, especially to people unfamiliar with Orkney, as being located in Kirkwall is a good base for exploring the mainland and for ferrying to the North and Inner Isles (via Kirkwall Harbour).

The houses have lovely decking areas to the front and rear to sit out, and, being at the top of the hill, the sun shines on one or both areas all day!

Fantastic value for money, a property of this standard in some parts of the UK would cost well into four figures for a one week break, even off-season: these lodges are much nicer than my own house!!! Can't wait to come back.

“Wonderful Accommodation”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We regularly stay at these lodges as we come to Orkney to work. The lodges are really comfortable, spacious and well maintained. The kitchens are well kitted out (dishwasher, washing machine, coffee machine etc) and have everything you might need for a self-catering stay. The lounges have comfortable sofas and chairs and a decent TV. The beds are excellent quality and the bedrooms have massive inbuilt wardrobes. All of the cottages have wifi, which is good enough for most people's needs.

The lodges are located on the outskirts of Kirkwall, next to the Highland Park Distillery. It's about a 20 minute walk into the city centre. There is plenty of free parking.

The owners are very friendly and are happy to help. I also find that they try to go the extra mile by including a few little creature comforts.

I can't recommend these lodges enough. They are perfect for any stay in Orkney.
