My first visit to this hotel was about one year ago, when I was 'held over' for one night on my way offshore. I was very impressed with the menu back then but was dissapointed when I was told my choice was much restricted due to the number of people in our party who were there on very short notice.... More

My room had lovely tweed curtains with matching chairs and a fantastic shower room. The owners go out their way to do whatever they can... More

Have eaten here a number of times, but this was my first stay in the hotel. The rooms were lovely and the tweed curtains are fantastic. Free wifi, good shower, comfy bed, tasteful decor. Very different from most hotels I've stayed in on trips to Shetland. The food is exceptional and my fellow diners were raving about their food, although... More

Recently stayed here 1 night while heading to Lerwick going offshore and must admit it was a really nice surprise...... The food was just fantastic really tasty and large portions we ended up eating lunch, dinner and breakfast at the hotel and they were all off a very high standard.

Very deceptive hotel. wondered where i had pulled up to but was pleasantly surprised by the experience had. The food is top rate and would travel for the quality of the meal alone. Service was very professional and speedy. Would definitely stay again.

I have visited this hotel on numerous occasions and have never had a bad experience. On my last visit I stayed for three nights and ate in the bar each evening. The fish dishes are some of the best I have tasted anywhere, such as Tusk Scampie, Monkfish and Stanebiter, Shellfish Stew and even good old Fish and Chips. Magnificent... More
