“Spacious, lovely B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

A great, scenic location and a very spacious, quiet, comfortable room (plus the most comfortable bed we found in Scotland) - we appreciated it all during our two night stay. Kathy knows her trade and it shows.

It's wonderful having alot of room to spread out in after coming back from a full day of touring! Happy to hear that you enjoyed your spacious, quiet and comfortable room. Our beds in the ensuite rooms are super king sized to ensure a good night's sleep! Please come back and visit us again and thank you very much for your review.

We stayed at Westrow Lodge for 4 days, and loved every minute. The location was perfect, the view was great, and Kathy paid attention to every detail, from lovely classical music at the great breakfast to every comfort in the rooms.

A great place to stay. We loved the quiet area and the view out to the water was lovely.
It's only a short drive to Kirkwall or Stromness to dine out as well as being an easy drive to any of the visitor attractions.
Our room was both spacious and very comfortable.
Our hosts (Kathy and Keith) were very easy to get on with and could not do more to make our stay enjoyable.
Thanks, Anne & Neil (Australia)

Arrived late on Monday evening after long day's cycling. The accommodation is lovely, great size room, en suite, guest sitting area with wifi internet access and free use of an excellent Apple computer plus tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was excellent both in quality of ingredients and cooking.

Only slight problem was I had not checked the local pub mentioned on website was open on a Monday - which it is not - so was facing and evening of emergency cycle rations!! However Kathy came to my aid and called the pub just in case; thankfully the also had a guest staying and were able to share an evening meal for me - the sort of hospitality that goes beyond the call of duty - thanks.

I will certainly stay here again next time I come back to Orkney.

Thank you for your review and it was lovely having you here. Our local pub is under new ownership and they are now open every night except Monday. They indeed took you in anyway for a meal on Monday night which we both were delighted about. Orkney hospitality at it's best!

A lovely home - spacious room and bathroom a plus. Kathy a wonderful host - all good. Well situated between Kirkwall and Stromness,but sadly lacking in Otters - this oversight has been forgiven because of overall excellence in all other areas.

Thank you for your lovely comments about our spacious bed and breakfast and hospitality, much appreciated! Otters are very elusive creatures, often nocturnal and after 18 years living here I have only seen them a handful of times. Sounds like a good excuse to come back and have another look! You may get lucky!

At every stage from booking to arrival and throughout our stay, Kathy provided helpful information and was a wonderful host. Westrow Lodge is well positioned between Kirkwall and Stromness with only a very short track from the main road. The room was spacious and very comfortable and the WiFi worked very well. A useful visitor lounge with lovely views. Breakfast was very good with excellent bacon!

Ah yes, the bacon! The back bacon we cook is very popular with the guests. We are very happy you all enjoyed that as well as the other aspects of the B & B. Hope to see you back again soon!

This B&B Is excellent and much more than just a base to explore the Islands. Kathy and Keith offer an exceptionally warm welcome and their helpfulness, concern and attention to detail meant we lacked for nothing. Breakfast was delicious and the comfortable rooms and sitting area with computer, coffee and tea making facilities were an added bonus. We can't recommend it too highly.
