The West End is the ideal place for you.
"Rising the Standard"
This hotel offers simple comforts but is still among the top
three or four places to stay in town.
In 1824 it was built just outside Kirkwall by a retired sea captain, and became
Orkney's first hospital in 1845. The hotel has character and is a historical part
of Orkney's History.
Today’s owners Gifford Leslie and Robert Dawson provide a warm welcome and a comfortable guest
rooms each with a shower-only bathroom. The property is newly refurbished and is fresh and inviting. Cost-conscious
meals are served in the 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 of both old and new.
