We loved Westrow, plain and simple. Kathy's killer breakfasts and Keith's uproarious stories were fuel for several days of exploration all around Orkney. Our room was spacious, well appointed, and immaculately clean, and we felt genuinely welcome and comfortable from the first moment to the last. One of the best vacation lodging experiences we've ever had. Highly and enthusiastically recommended.

I wish I could write a bad review because then I could keep Westrow Lodge and Kathy all to myself, but I was taught to share. Kathy made a trip that could have been awful,(we were leaving our daughter behind in Kirkwall to start unit) into something lovely to remember. The lodge itself is very comfortable and beautiful and Kathy's... More

I am glad that I could help make a sad goodbye to your daughter a lovely memory of happy times. It was great meeting you as a family unit and helping you to get things sorted for her. Starting university is an exciting adventure and she is off to a great start. You are always welcome back! More

Orkney is a wonderfully peaceful biking destination but we also recommend you bring a car too, to get the most of your stay, which you did. We belong to the Visit Orkney "Welcome Cyclists" scheme so have a folder full of maps and ideas of where to go and what to see on your bike. Our central location makes us... More

We had four wonderful days on Orkney. Kathy is the perfect host. The westrow is very comfortable, the room is big and the bathroom luxury. We learned a lot about the history of the Orkney Isalnds (the neolithic period). Okney is also a good place to visit the different and fascinating landscapes.

the american hostess was most welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable about Orkney but we did miss the anticipated charm of a true island local and whilst the high quality 'cooked to order' breakfasts were tasty & satisfying, they lacked the scottish touch - eg no orkney black pudding on offer

Your review certainly made my day-a big smile :) !!! I feel a bit of an imposter if you missed the company of a true island local!

Westrow Lodge is located half way between Stromness and Kirkwell. It is the ideal location if you have your own car. Parking is available on site. The surrounding countryside with ocean views provides a quiet location. Kathy and Keith are great hosts. Kathy cooks a delicious breakfast.
