“Lovely!”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a fantastic time staying at Kringla. The apartment is the most well-equipped I've ever stayed in - it has everything you could possibly need or want. It is clean, cosy and comfortable and very well located for exploring Orkney, as well as having useful local amenities nearby. Kay made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of handy tips for our travels.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We recently stayed in kringla apartment two with our dogs for eleven days.
The apartment was perfect in every way imaginable.Equipped with everything you could ever need for the duration of your stay.The apartment had two bedrooms a bright and spacious living/kitchen area that was neutrally and tastefully decorated through out and totally spotless.
Centrally located to visit all of the sites and convenient for ferry travel.
The apartment has convenience shops and stores etc just yards from your door and there is a large park adjacent from your apartment to exercise your dog if travelling with one.
In the warmer weather you have the option of sitting out doors.Benches are provided for each of the three apartments and an area at the back of the block to dry your clothes.
Off road parking that provides more than enough space for guests.
It was a wrench to leave this apartment.We certainly will be back.
It is perfect.

Spent a very happy week at Kringla 1 with two boys. Apartment has everything you need and is very comfortable (especially the beds), A great central spot from which to explore the island with a food shop and fantastic butcher in walking distance. The owner looks after you really well and provides helpful information about seeing the sights of Orkney.

“Fabulous apartment with great views - very well equipped”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Brilliant place to stay. Very well equipped - even came with a sharp knife that didn't wilt at the sight of a carrot, which is very rare in self catering accommodation! Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Great views over the countryside and well located for visiting places such as Skara Brae, Maeshowe and the coast as well as being halfway between Stromess and Kirkwall. Nice welcoming basket of goodies too. Would definitely recommend this apartment and if we revisit Orkney, we will be booking again.
