Westrow lodge offered us a wonderful large bedroom and bathroom, and a comfortable lounge with tea/ coffee facility. Excellent breakfasts in a delightful dining room with stunning views. We strongly recommend staying here if you visit Orkney.

It was lovely to have you stay in what I think is one of the nicest time of the year. Quiet and peaceful with stunningly beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We are happy that you were able to enjoy this in the comfort of our B & B. Thank you for your review and your recommendation! More

Beautiful bedroom and a comforting jacuzzi bath to ourselves in the evening. Sea view and a comfortable landing lounge to share with our friends. Central situation for travelling around Orkney Kathy was a mine of information. I have mixed fruit for breakfast at home and was delighted that it was available here. We loved Westrow Lodge.

Our room was amazing; huge, king-size bed, sea view window and a bathroom to order with built in bubbles and coloured lighting. The surrounding area is rural, complete with Aberdeen Angus cows and birds galore. Oh, and not forgetting the ruined croft buildings behind. Very photogenic.

This is the first time in 21 years that I have received not one, but two honeymooning couples! Love was definitely in the air. I am absolutely delighted that both couples decided to spend their special time in Orkney staying at Westrow Lodge! Thank you for your review and your appreciation of your room and the views. More

We loved Westrow, plain and simple. Kathy's killer breakfasts and Keith's uproarious stories were fuel for several days of exploration all around Orkney. Our room was spacious, well appointed, and immaculately clean, and we felt genuinely welcome and comfortable from the first moment to the last. One of the best vacation lodging experiences we've ever had. Highly and enthusiastically recommended.

I wish I could write a bad review because then I could keep Westrow Lodge and Kathy all to myself, but I was taught to share.

We had four wonderful days on Orkney. Kathy is the perfect host. The westrow is very comfortable, the room is big and the bathroom luxury. We learned a lot about the history of the Orkney Isalnds (the neolithic period). Okney is also a good place to visit the different and fascinating landscapes.
