Our hosts were very, very nice and helpfull with suggestions. The lodge over all and our room were perfect. Breakfast was great and WiFi better than any other places we have been. The lodge is very well located in the middle between Kirkwall and Stromness.

We spent two nights at the Westrow Lodge with two small children. We were able to stay in two adjacent rooms, sharing a bathroom. And what a bathroom it was: The kids especially enjoyed the whirlpool-like bathtub; it was like having a wellness facility all to ourselves. The weather wasn't great during our stay, so we especially enjoyed the warm... More

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Westrow Lodge. The two adjacent rooms sharing a bathroom are perfect for a small family - everyone has their privacy but can be together in the guest lounge. The whirlpool tubs were a recent addition this last year and are a real hit with our visitors- happy to hear that... More

Stayed three nights. Very nice accommodations, spacious and airy with a jacuzzi tub in modern bath. Ophir is a small town, but has nice pub and restaurant, and it is close to Stromness and World Heritage Neolithic sites. Host and hostess friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Kathy made us extremely welcome in her bed & Breakfast despite arriving very late in the evening, the standard of rooms is extremely high and would rival any 5 star hotel.We would have no hesitation in booking with Kathy in the future

To be compared to a 5 star hotel is a compliment that I am trully appreciative of, especially from someone who is so well travelled and has stayed in hotels all over the world! Thank you for your review and hope you both come back for a longer stay, there is so much more to see! More

So good to be back with Kathy and Keith. They are special friends after 8 years of staying with them whenever we can. Rooms spacious, plenty of storage for cases/clothes. Space in bathroom (with proper bath!) is good for ease of contact lens management - although the basin mixer tap is rather wasteful; forever need to run tap to get... More

New. modern facilities, with incredibly quiet location between Stromness and Kirkwall. Accessible to just about every site worth seeing in the Islands. We had two rooms, one for child at nominal additional price to the two person charge.

We recently did up our bathrooms to a modern standard and I am happy to hear that you appreciated them. Our central quiet location is indeed ideal for exporing everything on the island. When travelling with my parents I often had to share a "family room" and lacked privacy so I am delighted to offer a smaller room to children... More

Kathy was a generous, attentive host. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. Ensuites were well appointed. There was the bonus of a sitting room that had a recent model apple mac computer, a printer and free wifi for guest use. You do need a car to get around the island. Great views from all rooms.

Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Even though Orkney is a small island I always recommend people to bring a car as it is not feasible to walk everywhere! More

We recently stayed at Westrow Lodge for four nights. We had two good double rooms with modern en-suite bathrooms and with a connecting lounge with TV, PC and WiFi all available. It is convenient for all places to visit but just a bit far away from eating places so we had to drive to them. Orkney far exceeded our expectations... More

Absolutely delighted we exceeded your expectations! We are located in a centrall location so it is only a ten minute drive away to Stromnesss or 15 minute drive to Kikwall for shopping and dining. Our visitors love the peaceful location with sea views that you just don't get in the nearby towns. The best of both worlds- a peaceful location... More

Our first visit to Orkney and after staying here for a couple of nights, it won't be our last. A warm welcome from Kathy, who instantly made us feel relaxed and at home. She was happy to provide recommendations of places to eat locally and nothing seemed too much trouble. It was nice to have an upstairs private sitting room... More

very bright and clear, lonesome calm and pleasant B&B. Very friendly and helpful landlady. Big rooms, wonderful bathroom. House in northern style with big windows and a lot of wood. Wonderful breakfast with view over Scapa Flow.
