Only had lunch. Food and service were top notch, (fish special that was on, though the menu seemed to have a good choice anyway). pleasant surroundings too. Nice local ale available. Cannot think of anything negative to say!

We picked this one when high rated locations in Lerwick were full and were very satisfied. Room was clean fresh and fully acceptable for a small hotel. Staff very accommodating.. Did a load of laundry for us. What made difference was unexpectedly great food. We had an excellent bar lunch, great dinner and a very high quality breakfast which was... More

Shetland may be remote but all that is good about a boutique hotel has found its way to Scalloway. The food was of very high quality and the fish is exceptional, the owners Peter & Caroline have a very hands on approach ensuring the quality is maintained. Service is polite friendly and attentive in the restaurant, bar and reception. I... More

I had read a review about the management cancelling a booking in favour of a regular business client. Fair enough. I tried to book a room for 3 nights but was told only two nights were available. I asked what sort of room was available. I was told that "things might change so a room type could not be booked",... More

Ours is a small, family-run business, so this review is deeply distressing, as it has the potential to cause huge damage to the good reputation we have worked so hard to build up over the past six years. You phoned to request a three night booking of our Shetland room. You were advised that you could only have it for... More

This is a great hotel, with the rooms extremely well appointed, a view across the water and plenty peace and quiet around. The food and service were excellent, although breakfast to seemed to take a while. This was my second visit but will certainly not be my last. My only complaint is that I only had one night here -...

Stayed here for a couple of nights while on business in Shetland. Difficult getting rooms in Shetland due to current construction boom and ended up here after trying a few places. As other reviews have mentioned some rooms are quite small and I ended up in one of those. No sign of fruit, cafetiere or flowers mentioned in other reviews.... More

Previously stayed here in June and commented that the ensuite was a little small but absolutely no complaints about this on my recent visit. Beautiful room with lovely touches such as fresh flowers( I love lilies), fruit bowl, books and magazines. Another superb bar supper and excellent breakfast with probably the best eggs Benedict I have ever tasted. Friendly, helpful... More

Excellent meal - huge choice as ever - attention to detail - quick efficient and attentive service. Stayed the night - first overnight here - and what a lovely surprise! Cosy superbly appointed room overlooking the sea - warm opulent tweeds used for curtains and upholstery - luxurious towelling robes - and for me one of the best things was... More

As a regular business traveller to Shetland over the last couple of years, I have been delighted to have found the Scalloway, which I have made my Shetland base since first finding it. Having stayed previously in a number of Shetland hotels, I can say that the accommodation, food and welcoming atmosphere are significantly better here, and make me feel... More
