We are 2 female couples that have looked forward to visiting the Orkney for a long time. We spent our time staying at Westrow Lodge for 6 nights. Kathy and Keith welcomed us to their home which is beautifully set up for B&B. We were delighted to be shown to huge bedrooms with fabulous views and full size ensuite bathrooms.... More

We ended up here by accident - we had booked in another Orkney B&B who had to find us alternative accommodation because their previous guest was ill and couldn't leave in time for us to take the room we'd booked. Kathy was lovely and welcoming and the house was a wonderful base for exploring the islands. Breakfast was fantastic with... More

Our stay last week at Westrow Lodge was wonderful! We had a lovely spacious bedroom and bathroom, and there is a lounge just for guests which contains a computer, a small fridge and lots of reading material on the islands. Kathy is warm and welcoming host and the location of Westrow is perfect for visiting the outstanding neolithic sites in... More

Set out in the countryside, you have an amazing sense of the Northern Sky. The Lodge is about half way between Stromness and Kirkwall, (about 20 minutes in either direction) making it an ideal jumping off point for exploring neolithic Orkney. Not that either town could be considered bustling, but this was truly in a peaceful spot in the midst... More

We planned a trip involving several B+Bs in Orkney. Westrow Lodge in Orphir was a great situation for a stopover. We had 2 nights and the B+B is very good. Kathy is welcoming, we could safely leave our bikes in the garage which was great. Rooms and food were really very good too. We were able to walk from there... More

Cycling on Mainland Orkney is a pleasure as the fairly flat landscape makes for easy headway. There are many quiet country roads to explore with points of interest along the way and circular routes are abundant, especially on the West Mainland where Westrow Lodge B & B is located. Glad to hear you considered us as a great place to... More

Whilst on business in the Orkneys, I needed to find somewhere to stay at last minute, quite late at night. Westrow Lodge came to my rescue and Keith kindly stayed up late to welcome me on arrival. The lodge itself is beautifully laid out with spacious rooms, good facilities and a stunning view over Scapaflow bay. Wifi is also available... More

So glad you were so comfortable at Westrow Lodge that you thought of it as a "home away from home". The rural location gets one away from the traffic and other noises of the nearby towns and guarantees a restful stay. Please come back when you can stay longer than one night! More

We spent four days in Westrow and we liked it very much. The house overlooks Scapa Flow and is in a very good location to explore the SW part of Orkney, about halfway between Kirkwall and Stromness and few minutes from the ferry to Hoy. Kathy very nice and efficient, always taking care of her guests. Rooms are very clean... More

This was our first time to visit Orkney and we could not have asked for a better experience. Finding this B&B was a blessing, as not familar with the islands when I made the booking it was a perfect central location to explore the mainland island of Orkney. The owners, Keith and Kathy, were welcoming and so helpful. The family... More
