I spent one night in this hotel with my husband prior to a job interview. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming especially Mr Balfour! The central location in Kirkwall is great for going into the town. The room was to a high standard and was very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to explore Orkney.
- Also Known As:
- West End Kirkwall
- Hotel West End
- West End Hotel Kirkwall, Orkney Islands
- 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
