For us the location was great as we want to view as many of the ancient sights as possible and this we achieved Kathy was very helpful in both assisting us with our booking and recommending local places to eat Our rooms were of a generous size and spotlessly clean. We chose Westrow Lodge for a rural / farm setting...

You managed to get alot of touring done in just two days. Our central location makes it just that much easier! The beauty of a rural location is that the views are fantastic and it is peaceful; happy that you appreciated that. Please come visit us again as there is lots more to see and do!

A great, scenic location and a very spacious, quiet, comfortable room (plus the most comfortable bed we found in Scotland) - we appreciated it all during our two night stay. Kathy knows her trade and it shows.

We stayed at Westrow Lodge for 4 days, and loved every minute. The location was perfect, the view was great, and Kathy paid attention to every detail, from lovely classical music at the great breakfast to every comfort in the rooms.

A great place to stay. We loved the quiet area and the view out to the water was lovely. It's only a short drive to Kirkwall or Stromness to dine out as well as being an easy drive to any of the visitor attractions. Our room was both spacious and very comfortable. Our hosts (Kathy and Keith) were very easy...

Thank you for your review and it was lovely having you here. Our local pub is under new ownership and they are now open every night except Monday. They indeed took you in anyway for a meal on Monday night which we both were delighted about. Orkney hospitality at it's best!

A lovely home - spacious room and bathroom a plus. Kathy a wonderful host - all good. Well situated between Kirkwall and Stromness,but sadly lacking in Otters - this oversight has been forgiven because of overall excellence in all other areas.

Thank you for your lovely comments about our spacious bed and breakfast and hospitality, much appreciated! Otters are very elusive creatures, often nocturnal and after 18 years living here I have only seen them a handful of times. Sounds like a good excuse to come back and have another look! You may get lucky!

This B&B Is excellent and much more than just a base to explore the Islands.

Large bedrooms with good ensuite facilities. Local luxury toiletries and locally-sourced food on the breakfast table. A very warm welcome from Kathy and Keith. Wifi worked well and there was even an Apple computer provided for our use! A little sitting room which the two bedrooms share enhanced the experience.
