I agree, an absolutely perfect spot. Seeing Maeshowe from the bedroom window, looking out over Stenness Loch to the Ring of Brodgar and the Watchstone from the back door, then from the roof garden all of those are visible plus the Stones of Stenness.

The accommodation itself is first class, spotlessly clean, very roomy and very well equipped and comfortable and is one of the few places on Mainland with two bedrooms and two ensuites. It's on the first floor but you have your own access via the front door. Parking is no problem.

I stayed there for 2 weeks in August 05 and would definitely recommend it.

This is perfect!

Large, comfortable flat (own front door, all rooms on the first floor)

Fully equipped kitchen (washing machine, cooking equipment, tumble dryer, dishwasher, etc); 2 good sized bedrooms - one double, one twin. Very comfortable; Large living room; bath & shower

Roof garden overlooking the Loch of Stenness, with views of the Ring O' Brogar, the Stones of Stenness, Maes Howe, The Watchstone... fantastic!

Really easy to get to. Just along the road from Stromness to Kirkwall, just past the Standing Stones Hotel, by a garage with it's own shop. What more can you want? :oD
