West End Hotel - Orkney

Small Hotel

Main Street, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW15 1BU

    The West End is the ideal place for you. "Raising 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.
