We were delighted to find this beautiful B&B near the village of Orphir on Orkney. Our hostess was most helpful and there was a lovely guest lounge with wonderful views. It was such a good experience all round and the bonus was the weather. We could have been anywhere in the world. Blue skies, different blues in the seas and...

We were equally delighted that you found us as we enjoyed your company! Orkney is not really that far away from Scotland and yet you trully do feel you are in another part of the world! Happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you come for a return visit!

We had a large room with a nice Mac computer for guests use just outside our room in the small lounge, in addition to WiFi connectivity. Our host was friendly, breakfast was good and the location quiet. While Westrow is not in either of the major towns, there is good pub about 3 minutes drive. (No, it really isn’t walkable,...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at Westrow Lodge. We find that most of our visitors make good use of the free wifi and Mac computer in the guest lounge. We are very lucky to have a pub in walking distance from our lodge. We walk there often ourselves and you will...

We were made very welcome on arrival and throughout our stay where it was very comfortable with excellent bedrooms and nice sitting area. The breakfast was very good with an excellent choice. The time of breakfast could have been more flexible.

Thank you for your review and happy to hear you had a comfortable stay at Westrow Lodge. Breakfast is served as standard at 8:30 every morning but I always ask people the night before if that is O.K. as I realise people may have early morning plans or ferries to catch and may need it earlier which I am happy...

Happy to hear you appreciated Orkney uninterrupted views. Some folk remark about the lack of trees but I think the absence of even them gives you a broad expanded view of the ground meeting the water, meeting the sky. An inspiration for the artists here and a wow factor for tourists. You are welcome back to explore further our wonderful...

Cathy, our host, greeted us upon arrival showed us to our rooms and gave us fresh milk for tea. My room (the largest of the three) was luxurious, with a kingsize bed, en suite and space for an extra double and two armchairs. The location is extremely quiet, with an absolute tonne of wildlife all around. The lodge has some...

Just last week spent 2 days on Orkney. I had booked B&B at Westrow Lodge for one night. 2 rooms for myself, my wife and my son and daughter-in- law. The Orkney tourist brochure showed Westrow as a luxury b&b. Luxury was what was promised and it did not disappoint as luxury was what you got. The rooms were more...

We stayed in Westrow B&B while exploring Orkney for a couple of days and Kathy was very helpful before we arrived, organising booking arrangements via e-mail.

My friend and I spent four nights at the Westrow Lodge and found it absolutely perfect for our needs. Our room was spotless and quite large for the two of us.
