As we approached our holiday home in Evie, we knew that we had chosen well, with the tranquil location and lovely setting near the Loch of Swanny. We went to collect the keys from the nearby owners home and were greeted by Marion and John who invited us in for a cup of tea after our long journey. We then went into the holiday lodge and it was spotlessly clean and so well laid out, including a welcome pack and bits in the fridge. We had 5 comfortable nights stay and cannot fault anything with the lodge and its facilities. Marion and John had thought of everything to make our stay as enjoyable and trouble free as possible. A credit to them both. A memorable stay.
This Lodge was perfect for our family holiday. The owners have taken great trouble to ensure everything you might reasonably need is provided. The lodge is clean, warm and comfortable. It is a little off the main road (along a side road, in good condition) so perfectly quiet. We enjoyed the view to the loch, the birds, the many historical sites of Orkney and the beaches, especially Evie beach about 10 minutes away. We would love to return one day.
Rymmon Lodge is the perfect place to stay whilst in Orkney. The accommodation is extremely spacious and the lodge is very well-equipped, It has everything you could need, and more (loved the walk in wardrobe!). The location is great; so close to the Broch of Gurness and Birsay, two wonderful historic sites. The sites of Skara Brae, Maes Howe and the Ring of Brodgar, Ness of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness (all must sees) are also not too far away.
Marion and John are perfect hosts; thank you.
The view from the lodge is wonderful and how lovely to be greeted by the hens and horses each morning.
We had never been to Orkney before but would love to return one day. We had the most wonderful holiday and Orkney is such a special place. We loved it.
We can't recommend Rymmon Lodge highly enough; it's a very special place to stay in a very special place.
Remote, but an easy drive to everywhere. Tranquil and so very comfortable. If it was hotel rated then 5*++. Every detail was perfect (we went round the shops looking for the soaps and body wash - just needed to take some home). Marion and John are the best hosts - always there if you need something (the extra eggs were so welcome). The BBQ area was lovely. We chose a week where the weather wasn't the best, but it didn't matter. We were warm and cosy in the Lodge. Lovely views and sunsets to die for. If you want to experience Orkney then this is an excellent base to start from. Check the weather on the big TV, facebook your mates and plan tomorrow. It's all available at Rymmon Lodge.
Having travelled here for my Fathers birthday in June we were blown away with the situation of the lodge and by the welcome given to us by the owners who could not be more helpful and left a wonderful welcome basket of local produce,this is just what we needed to enjoy a nice relaxing break on the beautiful Island of Orkney.
I would highly recommend the lodge to friends and family if they wish a quiet get away from it all break
