We stayed for three nights at the beginning of October and it lived up to all the recent reviews. Food at breakfast was excellent as was the service. Giffie sorted us out a map so that we got to see the best of the island in the two full days we had - nothing was too much trouble for them and we would certainly recommend staying there. The rooms, as was the rest of the hotel, lovely and clean. Well done Giffie and Robert.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This hotel offers simple comforts but is still in the top two or three places to stay in Kirkwall. In 1824, it was built just outside Kirkwall by a retired sea captain, and became Orkney’s first hospital in 1845. Today, owners Gifford Leslie and Robert Dawson provide a warm welcome and comfortable guest rooms. Each with a shower-only bathroom. The property has been refurbished in the past few years and it now fresh and inviting. Cost-conscious meals are served in a small restaurant and bar. Fully licensed to sell alcohol, the hotel attracts both locals and visitors. The West End Hotel, in many ways, is the ideal blend of old and new. ... more less
