Our room had a view of the bay, cows and sheep. Westrow is close to Stromness and Kirkwall and all of the ancient sites. There is a little pub...

Beautiful views, great people, lovely bathroom with Jacuzzi, huge comfy bed, small fridge. Shared lounge with comfortable chairs, available computer, another small fridge, nice selection of teas and cocoa. I can do all the details, and still not show you how lovely the Westrow is. Kathy even chooses great music for breakfast! She and Keith know the whole of Orkney...

This was our 10.th stay in Scotland, the first time on Orkney, and we choosed the worst weather for that year. Our stay lasts one week, but with Kathy's help, we never were bored. Starting with the hourse itself. In the ideal direction in between Stromness and Kirkwall, on a little hill, overviewing Scapa Flow - with wonderful view's. The...

Westrow Lodge was an amazing place to stay. Beautiful views of the historic Scapa Flow Bay and the North Sea. The hosts, Kathy and Keith, were so gracious with their time, giving us information on the island history as well as advice on visiting the Neolithic sites. Westrow Lodge offers several amenities not usually found in other B&Bs, such as...

The owner hosted us at the last minute after my original reservation fell through due to illness. Everything about the stay was fabulous: welcome, hospitality, room, facilities, breakfast. The room was very spacious, with an en-suite with a Jacuzzi bath, a large double bed, nice view over the hills. Would definitely recommend.

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.
