Do Not Stay Here!
This apartment is not as advertised. It is very dated but most of all dirty. The oven was filthy, pans still had food on them from previous guests. Toaster was rusty, carpet stained. Crumbs under the cushions of the settee. Nail clipping found in the drawer and sanitary towel under the Magnus bed together with an empty crisp packet. There is no washer dryer as advertised. The bed was very uncomfortable to the point that it’s given me backache. The owner refused to accept any responsibility and did NOTHING to address any of the issues.

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.

A fabulous place
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.
