When we first arrived at the hotel, I was a little nervous. It feels like staying in someone's house, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's definitely different than a traditional hotel! There is a shared bathroom upstairs and I was very worried that I would have issues with waiting in line in the morning or feeling rushed when... More

I agree with previous reviewers who describe the rooms as dated and compact, and accommodation as simple but adequate. Whilst it doesn't entirely rest on its laurels, service is not consistent: our first night in the restaurant was excellent, by our second they had run out of most items on the menu, and on the third night we went elsewhere....

Excellent food in the restaurant is more than one would expect given the simple (but adequate) accommodation. A good base from which to explore the small island of Westray. Don't miss a visit to the Heritage centre next door. Also a Cream Tea on the front lawn is recommended.,

We spent two and a half days on Westray, visiting to see the archaeological sites, and to hike and birdwatch. We had heard good things about this hotel and so chose to stay here based on those reviews alone. And we were not disappointed. We had a lovely time here, and could not recommend this hotel more highly. That being... More

I was visiting the island whilst working and stayed at the Pierowall Hotel for one night. Dont let first impressions fool you as mentioned previously, its like the Tardis. You walk in and the place just sees to open up. The room which I had was, although a little dated, very comfortable and bright. I ate in the bar and... More

One of only two establishments on the small island of Westray that appear to describe themselves as a 'hotel', the Pierowall is centrally situated overlooking Pierowall Bay. It does not look large from the outside but has around seven bedrooms. We were allocated a well-appointed room with a compact en suite. The latter had an efficient electric shower unit but... More

A small, friendly hotel with comfortable & spaceous rooms. The hotel looks over the bay & we explored the island from Pierowall on our Bikes!!! Must see Noups Head, Noltland Castle, Cross Kirk & Cemetry & visit the many sandy beaches, but on a bike !!! Wholesome cooking & cosy bar !!

Didn't sleep here so bit about rooms being excellent is only a guess (I couldn't leave it blank!) but had two meals which were lovely and great value. Great location and very accommodating staff. We stayed at the Barn which was excellent and they recommended the hotel. The island is beautiful with the most wonderful little airfield, a creepy but... More

We stayed overnight 5th August with our two German Shepherds.Arrived mid afternoon to glorious sunshine ate fish & chips in the garden absolutely delicious. Breakfast following morning equally so. Lovely room with view over the sea. if you have a chance to visit Westray then recommend staying at The Pierowall or at least enjoy a meal there.

We were staying in a B&B on the island (the hotel was full) but wanted to eat here after all the good reviews on TA. It is a small place, very homely and comfy, a real oasis on a wet and windy day. Our dinner was faultless. Grimbister cheese croquettes to start with and the famous 'fish and chips' to... More
