I fell in love with this place. Overall everything looks quite new and warm. The room was quite large (it was a 4 bedroom) and cozy, and so is the bathroom. The breakfast was more than satisfactory, they even provided lactose free option for me. The owners seem really passionate about their job and are happy to share information about the place to visit. They also offer a great and affordable laundry service! Ah, and they offer parking spot.
Very comfortable room, clean, spacious and welcoming hosts. Albert even gave me a lift into town once I'd freshened up after my arrival. Very impressed overall.
Honestly can't find any faults except for lugging my gear up the hill but that's only because I'm too stubborn to get get a taxi!
Aileen and Albert were so welcoming and helpful, they gave great local advice including a daily newsletter , Good location, rooms lovely and clean, very efficient, great breakfast, made our stay in Kirkwall really enjoyable. Would highly recommend,
We had a lovely stay at Karrawa - a warm welcome even though it was after midnight, a taxi organised to pick us up from the ferry and a spacious room which lived up to expectations (having checked previous reviews - the room was spotless and very comfortable). Albert went 'above and beyond' and really looked after us. Particularly appreciated the gluten free bread at breakfast and the homemade rhubarb and ginger jam - many thanks for making our weekend trip extra special.
With a stay at Karrawa Guest House in Kirkwall, you'll be a 1-minute walk from Mainland and 14 minutes by foot from Bishop's Palace. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
