Kringla provided the perfect base to explore orkney and to indulge in some trout fishing. Clean, well maintained and centrally situated I the heart of the orkney mainland, this is a must do on the bucket list.
Enjoyed a wonderful 2 week holiday at Kringla. Spotless inside and comfortable for relaxing at home. Kitchen well equipped to the highest standard. Dounby is an excellent base with Co-op, Petrol, play areas (in school grounds) and good pub food plus other shops. Also only about 15 mins drive from both Stromness and Kirkwall. Would recommend highly and have no hesitation about staying there again if return to Orkney.
tHis place was amazing ! Very high standards throughout beds were very comfy best sleep I've had in years!!! Cleanliness!!! What can I say ? You could eat your dinner off the floor impeccably clean !!! I would advise anyone to stay here it is a fantastic location to explore the island and was lovely to come back to such luxurious accommodation at the end of a long day thank you Kay for making our time in Orkney unforgettable xkx
The apartment was fantastic and excellent value. Access was brilliant. The memory foam mattress was a real bonus. Went without a car and found it easy enough to get about using the local buses. The owner was very helpful and welcoming, as were all the Orcadians we met. Couldn't fault it and can't wait to go back!
We stayed in Kringla 1 for 9 days in July. The apartment itself was very comfortable, clean and well equipped (tonnes of kitchen utensils and even a heated drying rack!). Kay was there to meet us when we arrived and also popped by several times during our stay to check everything was alright. She also emailed round a daily bulletin of events happening on the islands, which was most helpful.
The apartment is well placed in terms of access to the top visitor attractions (Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Maeshowe, etc), and very conveniently located close to a co-op supermarket (open til 10 at night) , post office, petrol station and hotel in the village of Dounby. Kay also provided us with some discount vouchers for the excellent Merkister Hotel a short drive away, which we made use of twice (great bar snacks and the restaurant looked very good too).
We were sad to leave! Great stay in a lovely apartment and location.
