Next day we resorted... 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! My father's family all originate in Orkney for many generations and I came back to my "roots" 20 years ago from America. I am probably more local than alot of folk here even... More

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.

We had a fabulous stay at Westrow B&B. Kathy & Keith have a beautiful home with fantastic 360 degree views in a great location. Our room was large and luxurious.

Kathy and Keith have a fantastic B&B - comfortable, convenient, friendly with a great breakfast. Many suggestions for Orkney activities. And they went beyond the call of duty when they collected our lost luggage from the airport BEFORE we'd arrived as guests! Also good free wi-fi and even had Euro 16 on the TV

Our three night stay at Westrow Lodge was wonderful. The location is perfect in that it is out of the way and peaceful yet not too far from Kirkwall and other towns. Thank you Kathy and Keith for helping with dinner suggestions and reservations and making us feel so welcome. Orkney was definitely a highlight of our trip.
