“A home from home”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in Kringla 3 and had a great holiday. The apartment has all you could ask for in a holiday let, and is spotless. A lovely welcome pack awaited us, and there is a great selection of information booklets and maps which will help you plan your days out. The apartment is centrally located in mainland Orkney, so getting about is easy. There is a well stocked convenience store just down the road, and the local butcher sells some fine produce too. The local hotel is just down to road too and the meals served here can be highly recommended too. All in all a great base for exploring.

“Fabulous newly furnished apartment.Very clean and comfotable. Home from home.”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Kay looked after us from the moment we booked to ensure we found the apartments. Very comfortable and clean and brilliantly central to the neolithic sites.When the weather wasn't brilliant it was a lovely apartment to just chill and read. Hotel ,butcher and co-op within walking distance.

“Good location, great value”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The flats (we had flat 1) have been running as such since either summer 2012 (flat 1) or April 2013 (flats 2 and 3) so the feel is very fresh - there is nothing tired or jaded anywhere. The fact that there is one L-shaped reception room incorporating the dining area and sitting room is sociable and a plus. The flat was thoughtfully kitted out and the owner provided a nice welcome pack which we appreciated. There is off-road parking and good facilities within 200m - a Co-op, petrol station, post office, pub that does meals, an (excellent) butcher, a pharmacy, and more. The location was quiet and the blinds behind the curtains in the bedrooms helped ensure that we didn't wake up at dawn. I would recommend Kringla wholeheartedly. As first time visitors to Orkney, we felt the location was perfect for visiting the "main" sites. When I lost my phone Kay was immensely supportive in both advice and action - helpfulness without intrusion - spot on.

“Excellent spacious and well equipped comfortable apartment.”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Spent a fantastic week at Kringla. The apartment is very centrally situated in West Mainland, which makes travelling around the area easy. Kay is an excellent host and regularly checks in on her guests. The apartment is spacious, well equipped (washer and drier, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.) comfortable, very clean and is furnished to a very high standard. Lots of local info to read.

Only a two minute walk to shop (open until 10pm) and to hotel which does excellent meals. Plenty of offroad parking.

No hesitation in recommending Kringla for a holiday in Orkney! 5 stars.

“An excellent apartment”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This was my first visit to Orkney and I was lucky to find Kringla3.
The apartment is first class and Kay is a friendly, caring and informative owner. A lot of thought has been given to fitting out and equipping the apartment and the result is good.
Dounby is a good base from which to tour Mainland Orkney and has adequate shops, a post office and a petrol station.
