Westrow Lodge B & B
Ranked #1 of 7 Orphir B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 June 2012

...and we'd love to go back! The lodge is beautiful and well cared for with spectacular views of Scapa Flow; our room was quiet, spacious and comfy; breakfasts were delicious and beautifully prepared with lots of variety. Kathy & Keith were warm, welcoming and helpful hosts. From the picnic lunch Kathy prepared one day, to doing a much-needed load of our laundry, to helping with dinner reservations and all of our Orkney questions, they went above and beyond to make it an extra-special stay. (There was a small fee for the lunch and laundry, but well worth it.) Westrow Lodge is a perfect place to stay when you're exploring the Orkneys.

Beautiful Scandanavian style house with a wonderful view of Scapa Flow, situated midway between Kirkwall and Stromness. We had a lovely spacious bedroom with a large en suite bathroom room,there is also a separate guest lounge with comfortable seating, tea & coffee making facilities and plenty of information availiable about things to do while in Orkney.
There is also wifi should you really feel the need to keep in contact with the outside world !.
We had a very pleasant short stay in Orkney and we certainly intend to return in the future.
Kathy works very hard to ensure that you enjoy your stay, from the extra touches to the wonderful breakfasts and is quite happy to make suggestions of places to go visit, or eat.
Kathy & Keith are lovely & genuine hosts

It's almost impossible to summarize in words the beauty of the Orkney islands and the warmth shown by Kathy and Keith. Needless to stay... I will absolutely stay here again next time I visit and will likely head back to the islands when given a chance.

I am a 39 year old woman, traveling alone for a couple weeks until I met up with some friends in Rome... during the end of summer, beginning of Autumn. Orkney is majestic... no trees which means your line of sight is never stopped... hard to explain and absolutely worth the travel hurdles. (Flights into Scotland then additional flights to get you into Orkney.) Make certain you take your time and enjoy the islands as much as possible. This means... take walks in the morning and enjoy the stones like a local... a part of the beautiful scenery and part of their everyday life.

We stayed at the Westrow Lodge Bed and Breakfast for two nights in October 2011. This is a very welcoming place with lovely hosts who are happy to provide any local information you may require. The location is excellent half way between Kirkwall and Stromness but far enough away that we had a lovely peaceful sleep. The rooms are really spacious and the bed was a great size. The breakfast spread was lovely with many cereals to select from and full cooked breakfast available too. I really liked sitting at the large kitchen table while Kathy cooked in the kitchen - felt like a home away from home. A washing service is also available at a small charge which was perfect especially if you are travelling for a long period of time.

It was a wonderful surprise after enduring the ferry to Stromness to find such a warm and inviting bed and Breakfast. The rooms was beautiful having a full view of Scapa. Kathy and Kevin made us feel right at home and were very helpful as to our touring schedule. The breakfast provided was a full Sottish breakfast which allowed us to only eat one meal per day.

This is first rate bed and breakfast and I would encourage anyone who wants to visit the Orkney to book your stay here and drive or take local transport to the fine historic sites available on this island.

Room Tip: This is one of the few wooden structures on the island. The home is well insulated from the cold an...
