Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Kathy and Keith are warm and kind hosts, and made my stay comfortable and relaxing. The rooms are large and generously furnished, and the views from all the upstairs windows (especially the guest lounge) over Scapa Flow and surrounding countryside are wonderful. Liberal quantities of hot drink supplies freely available in the lounge, along with a microwave and plates/cutlery for take out dining. Kathy provides an extensive range of breakfast options, and though I couldn’t eat it for health reasons, the fried breakfasts enjoyed by other gussets looked great! But I had plenty to choose from anyway 😊 The location in Orphir is halfway between the two main towns, Kirkwall and Stromness, making it convenient for exploring the whole of the mainland; and it’s also close to the Houton ferry terminal for ferries to Hoy. Highly recommended, especially if you have tansport (there are bus links to Orphir, but only half a dozen a day).

After 3 years, we returned to Orkney and Westrow Lodge for another fantastic vacation. Our room was spacious, the king-sized bed comfy, there was lots of closet space, and the ensuite bathroom modern and well-equipped. The adjacent lounge for guests offered many resources including computer, sightseeing info, hot beverage station, picnic supplies, and snacks. There is a lovely view from the Lodge and it has easy access to both Kirkwall and Stromness. Kathy's breakfasts were delicious and delightful. The owners, Kathy and Keith manage the B&B professionally and with great care to detail and the comfort of their guests. Well done and many thanks!

Stayed with Kathy & Keith in mid early august while visiting my father who still lives in Orkney.
Admired this house when i first saw it way back in the early 90s when visiting my father.
Very warm welcome by the owners.
My brother & partner were in one room & myself & my wife in the other.
We had the complete top floor of the house to ourselves. 2 very large rooms with beautiful en-suites with jacuzzi bath with shower above, loads of hot water. we had the large double room with the biggest & comfiest bed Ive ever slept in!
The views from the window are stunning but good blackout curtains kept the early morning sunrise at bay.
The "landing" area is a large sitting area with views over Scapa flow. seating for 5 people, fridge.cofee table & Mac computer free to use if you want to browse.
Wifi was very good around the property.
Breakfast was very good, a request sheet left every afternoon when the rooms are cleaned, full breakfast, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs or smoked salmon bagels were all on offer as well as more toast & fruit juice than you could ever need.
cereals also available.
Large parking area outside. lovely garden.
15 mins drive to Stromness & 20 to Kirkwall.
Will definitely stay at Westrow again.

Fabulous B&B, Kathy is an excellent host who anticipates a guests needs at every turn. A lovely welcome to Orkney and full of recommendations and information. Breakfast was exceptional and the choices fantastic. Extra surprise was the jacuzzi bath that made our stay even more special.
The location is also great for exploring all parts of the Main Island.

We enjoyed an outstanding week at Westrow Lodge B&B. The setting of the Lodge is beautiful with glorious views. Our room was spacious with a super king bed, a well equipped bathroom and access to a guest lounge for our convenience. The breakfasts were varied, appetising and beautifully presented. Kathy and Keith are friendly and thoughtful Orcadian hosts with exceptional knowledge of all that the islands have to offer. We would highly recommend Westrow Lodge and will definitely stay there if we visit Orkney in the future.

We stayed at Westrow Lodge for 5 nights over the long weekend of the Orkney Folk Festival. We cycled and drove around Mainland. Westrow is well positioned as a base for exploring and it was a pleasure to return each night to a comfortable bed in a beautiful house where the temperature is just right, the breakfast excellent and the welcome very warm. Kathy and Keith gave great suggestions for outings and restaurants. The Hoy ferry is close by- that’s a plan for our next visit!

Thonk you for your kind review. Look forward to seeing you both again on your next visit!

We had a wonderful time at Westrow Lodge. The location was great, equidistant between Kirkwall and Stromness. Our room was spacious, comfortable, with a beautiful en-suite bathroom, and the views were spectacular. Kathy had thought of everything to make our stay special, even providing the little things we might have forgotten! The breakfasts were amazing! Well done and many thanks.

Kathy and Keith were perfect hosts at the Westrow Lodge. Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing.

The lodge is close enough to Kirkwall for eating and drinking whilst offering a quiet retreat for relaxing. Me and my wife very much enjoyed our stay.
