  • Thank you for letting us stay.  The apartment is very well equipped and is extremely clean.  We love Orkney and its hospitality.  Let’s hope we can return when this pandemic is behind us.  Orkney is a special place.

    Orkney is a special place.


    Lovely accommodation in mint condition.  Another lovely holiday.

    Lovely accommodation

  • Once again, a highly enjoyable stay in first class accommodation.  The dogs, Mirren and Schubert consider this a second home.  They certainly know the route to the park for daily ball games!  Thank you very much Kay.  I’m sure we’ll be back!

    First class accommodation

  • This is without doubt the best self catering accommodation we’ve seen.  Thank you.

    D & A Davidson, Oban, Argyll

  • Really enjoyed our stay at Kringla 2.  Everything you need and spotlessly clean. Good central location for all the various sites of interest.  Would certainly recommend Kringla to anyone.

    P & C Huckle & J Roles, Bridport and Yeovil

  • We’ve had a comfy, very, very clean stay.  Everything we needed was here.  The Breakfast Bulletins were most helpful.  We’ve enjoyed our stay even though the weather was dull.  Hope to see you next year.

    The Weatherall family

  • We have had a fantastic week in Orkney, visiting many of the wonderful sites and finding many geocaches along the way.  Accommodation has been super – very well appointed, comfy beds and can’t think of one single fault!

    The Hall family, Lanarkshire

  • Apartment well above the usual standards and very well equipped.  Central for fishing and many sites of interest.  Mattress particularly comfortable.  Merkister Hotel was very handy for good food and fishing news.  The jewel in the crown was the kind help and support from Kay and Dave who went the extra mile and more for a solo elderly traveller.  I wouldn’t have caught the 1lb 10 oz trout without his help and that was the icing on the cake.

    Harry Anderson, Inverness

  • We have thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Orkney as a family and the apartment was comfortable, well equipped with everything we could possibly need and centrally located for everything Orkney has to offer.   We have had a fantastic week of archaeology, wildlife and local culture, including live music at the Reel in Kirkwall and a fireside storytelling evening at the Stromness hotel.  Thank you very much for making us so welcome.

    The Servanti Family

  • “We’ve had a lovely few days here.  The apartment is cosy and comfortable.  Everything we needed.  Visited lots of sites and some lovely people.  Orkney is beautiful, dramatic and lived up to all our expectations.  We will highly recommend Kringla”

  • “Just the best self-catering we have ever stayed at”

    The Hardys, Cumbria

  • Fantastic apartment.  Everything you need but the memory foam mattress made it really perfect.  Never slept so well on holiday.  Kay and locals so helpful and welcoming.  We didn’t come for the weather but wow!!  What a fortnight – warmth and sunshine.  We came without a car and everyone thought we were mad but the bus service is great.  We got around the island, went to Shapinsay, saw some amazing wildlife and just love it.  We were privileged to see the Commonwealth baton come to Dounby.  A perfect holiday.

    Liz and Barbara, Leicestershire

  • Spent a pleasant time here in Orkney. The apartment is first class and all our needs catered for. Thank you. It’s an ideal centre equidistant to all the many visitor attractions.

    I Gibson and M Johnston

  • Lovely accommodation- way above our usual standards! Have enjoyed exploring the island from a central location.  Excellent facilities, dog friendly, looking forward to returning again. Loved the puffins at Yesnaby but didn’t see any otters. Many thanks.

    Su and Alison, Gloucestershire and Stornoway

  • Looking forward to a return visit – everything so comfortable and welcoming at Kringla and so well equipped.  We have slept so well on super memory foam mattress!  We love Orkney – so much to see and do, beaches perfect for our energetic cairn terriers!  Especially like Birsay and enjoyed visit to Skara Brae.  Merkister Hotel very good and thanks for the 10% discount tokens.  Thanks Kay for help and “nothing too much trouble”.  Thanks to Rachel also.

    Brenda, Tony, Pip and Bebe, Cumbria

  • Saw puffins, Orkney voles, sunshine, beaches, cliffs but still no otters even though we got up at the crack of dawn and several other times and places!

    Su and Alison, Gloucestershire and Stornoway

  • Searched for 3 days to find something – anything that wasn’t perfect here – and failed.  Kringla just could NOT be better. Thank you.

    Steve and Pauline, Lancashire

  • Wonderful apartment, enjoyed our stay.  Already booked for next year. Can’t be bad.  Thank you Kay.

    Matt and Allison, Glenrothes.

  • A fantastic fortnight of fun with Kringla as a great base to explore the whole Mainland.  Enjoyed the high quality accommodation with Kay being an excellent hands-on host.  Dounby great for Co-op and eating out at Smithfield and Merkister – plus fab Birsay Bay Tearoom.  We hope to be back to Orkney soon!

    Nigel, Rhona and Cornelious, Lanark

  • A wonderful 2nd holiday in Orkney.  Apartment has been simply wonderful and Kay is the perfect host.  Thank you!  ? Weather was amazingly good.  We recommend all the usual haunts – Ring of Brodgar, Stones of Stennes, Skara Brae.  Ranger tours for Brodgar and Stenness are excellent!  Skaill Bay is lovely too……Thanks very much Kay

    Brian and Jackie, Derby

  • First visit to Orkney and will definitely be coming back.  Apartment is wonderful – very homely and cosy.  Great night’s sleep too!!  So central to everywhere we wanted to visit.  Kay very friendly and helpful and will definitely recommend Kringla apartments!!  Thank you- (and the dogs really enjoyed their holiday too!)
