Very Good

“Excellent apartment”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2017

We had an excellent holiday based at the Kinglassie apartment. Accommodation was superb, no faults at all. Little touches added that extra enjoymentioned. Will definitely stay again. Kay was extremely nice. Would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone. Thanks Kay.

Owner's reply: We would love to welcome you back!

“Lovely apartment, everything thought of”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2017

Well sighted modern apartment with everything we could ask for. Nicely situated for visits throughout the mainland, and Dounby had good local shops and pub. Kay was lovely even though we arrived a bit late, and we didn't need to contact her orherwise

Owner's reply: Thank you. I hope to welcome you back to Kringla in the future.

“Everything we could have asked for and more.”

Reviewed 28 May 2015

Kringla is clean, well equipped, comfortable and cosy. There were some lovely touches such as welcome goodies of, free range eggs, fudge, shortbread & more. Kay provided us an email of what was happening on the island daily and gave us some great tips for visiting places. The property is centrally located to access everything on Orkney. There was even a great area to walk our dog very close by. The pub in the village was dog friendly.

Owner's reply: I am pleased you found Kringla so convenient and that it exceeded your expectations! I hope your short visit has inspired you to return.

“Excellent base on Orkney in a well appointed, comfortable apartment.”

Reviewed 28 May 2015

Dounby is well placed on Mainland being a short car journey from all the well known sites. The apartment is spotlessly clean and combines comfort and practicality. Kay made us feel very welcome and the fresh flowers and welcome pack of goodies were much appreciated. We were offered (and accepted) a daily email update about What's On in Orkney which was invaluable and meant we were able to attend an excellent lecture on Sea Eagles which we otherwise wouldn't have known about. It also included details on when the big cruise liners were in so we could avoid the towns on those days. Thoroughly enjoyed visiting The Tomb of the Eagles; Skara Brae, The Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness; The Broch of Gurness and The Sands of Evie were a particular favourite; Yesnaby; Cuween chambered cairn; Maes Howe (if you want to visit the interior make sure you book beforehand as they get booked up quickly) and of course Kirkwall and Stromness. The museums in these two towns were very interesting. The bird life was amazing (wish I knew more) and we saw seals at Stenness. The fossil museum is good for wet days and the cinema in Kirkwall has a different film most evenings. The only downside was that we were prepared for it to be cold and windy...and it was. With plenty of layers on however this really didn't matter. Nine days wasn't enough!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind words and tips on holidaying in Orkney.

“Excellent base for exploring Orkney”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2014

The apartment is one of three, adapted from a house in Dounby, which is a small village in central Orkney mainland. We found it an excellent location - rural and quiet, yet a very short walk from shops and restaurants, whilst only 20 minutes from all the main centres, e.g. Kirkwall, Stromness. From here we easily accessed the whole of the island and its charms - there is much to explore, both history and contemporary. The local people are remarkably friendly and welcoming, none more so than Kay, the owner of the property, who ensued we had everything we needed for comfort. The apartment has extras that we normally expect to pay for, such as wi-fi, laundry facilities, included in the cost. It is warm and cosy. The beds (one double, one twin) comfortable and all the rooms spacious and well-equipped. It was quite newly decorated when we stayed. We had a very good stay and would recommend this property, the village, and Orkney.

Owner's reply: So glad you found the location ideal for exploring Orkney and that you enjoyed Kringla. Many thanks.

“Lovely apartment, great location”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2014

Kringla 3 is a lovely apartment, well furnished and equipped and good value. We stayed as a group with 2 couples and there was plenty of room for us all. The apartments are well situated in Dounby, very close to a co-op and the attractions on the west side of the Island

Owner's reply: I appreciate you taking the time to write a reveiw. Thank you.

“No problems”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2014

Each time we come to Orkney we stay a bit longer- this time for 4 weeks, difficult for self- catering accommodation. Luckily Tripadvisor suggested Krinla and it hasn't disappointed. I'm a little wary about all 5 star reviews and usually find a tiny downside; this time I can't! The appartment is like a new furnished flat and the location convenient for touring Orkney. The Co-op, post office and butcher are above average and 1 minute away. Finally I can't avoid Kay's blushes to say she and Dave work tirelessly to make sure all runs smoothly.

Owner's reply: There is so much to see and do in Orkney I think 4 weeks is a great idea! So many of our guests say that they wish they had stayed longer. Well done!

“The perfect base to explore The Orkney Islands”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2013

Kringla, which had been recently completed in July 2012, represented a wonderful base for our family to explore the wonders of the Orkney Mainland and a few of the islands. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with all the conveniences we needed for our stay. The property is within very short walking distance of a village shop and a pub/hotel. Walks from the house into the surrounding countryside are filled with wonderful sights. The folk of Dounby are friendly and welcoming. Wider afield, Mainland is endowed with many attractions. These span human history; from the Neolithic to World War 2. There is never a dull moment in Orkney. Go to Orkney; go to Dounby; stay at Kringla. You'll have a wonderful holiday!
