A hidden gem, just off the main drag. Warm and comfortable. The staff are great, cheerful, and polite. A credit to your Island. Food is very good, the service is very god, nothing not to like. Happy to return. Thank you.

About
Description
This hotel offers simple comforts but is still in the top two or three places to stay in Kirkwall. In 1824, it was built just outside Kirkwall by a retired sea captain, and became Orkney’s first hospital in 1845. More The property has been refurbished in the past few years and it now fresh and inviting. Cost-conscious meals are served in a small restaurant and bar. Fully licensed to sell alcohol, the hotel attracts both locals and visitors. The West End Hotel, in many ways, is the ideal blend of old and new. Less
