“Highly recommended for everyone who wants good quality self catering”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Kay the owner was very welcoming and the accommodation was even better than expected. Excellently equipped and warm. Great location in west mainland with food shop on door stop including a local butcher with excellent beef and fresh frozen fish.

“Great apartment!, Kay was great!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My partner and i stayed in Kringla 3 apartment. It looked brand new and was spotlessly clean. We arrived from Shetland at 11pm and Kay was kind enough to greet us and show us around the flat even though it was late. The welcome basket was a lovely touch! The location is great too, Dounby is pretty much in the centre of mainland Orkney, so it takes 20-30 minutes to get anywhere you want to go. The only thing that is missing is the wi-fi, which Kay said she was looking into for next year.

Stayed in Kringla 3 (upstairs) with my wife and two children. Beautifully "new" looking and well equipped apartment with a good kitchen. Kay (owner) was extremely helpful both before arriving and whilst there.

Dounby itself has all necessary shops including a long-opening hours Co-op. Its a great location for the Neolithic sites in particular.

The only thing missing is Wi-fi - 3G signals are a little sparse around Orkney. However a large TV kept the children happy!

“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.

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.
