Went here for a meal recently - one of the best places I've been to in Shetland for food. I don't know how I didn't hear about this place sooner but I'll definitely be back. The food was excellent, there was also a place for small children to play while we were waiting.

Without any doubt the feature of any stay at Drumquin House will be the dinner. The menu is excellent and the delicious food supplied is presented beautifully and very artistically by very welcoming and friendly staff. Even if you don't intend to stay there you must pay a visit to sample the cuisine. I can thoroughly recommend it. Well done... More

We travelled Shetland five days and the Drumquin out of five was the weakest link. Dust had gathered neatly under room furniture, and breakfast was bland with the ping of the microwave omnipresent. There was no menu, although full English (stingy on the bacon) and cereals were available. The bed was small for two with hard pillows and a mattress... More

I was lucky enough to stay at Drumquin Guest House. It is easy to find - if you happen to land at Sumburgh airport it takes about an hour on easy and well sign posted roads (head North and then follow signs for Brae when they kick in) and the guest house is just in the left as you come... More

Being a Shetlander you would think you would know where all the best places to eat would be. This is not the case. When the Drumquin Guest House was mentioned for a meal with family and friends last weekend it was the first I had ever of this place and boy I can tell you I wish I had known... More

In 2012 my wife and I cycled 3000 miles of the North Sea Cycle Route which took us through the Shetlands. Of all the places we stopped at on our 3 month tour this is the one we still talk about, the best of the trip. We were so lucky they had had a cancellation as I get the impression... More

I recently visited Shetland for work, I needed to stay in the vicinity of Sullom Voe, so Brae was an oblivious choice, what I found lacking was just that, choice, there was a hotel at over £100 per night, no doubt very pleasant, then there was an over priced mediocre motel style hotel at £80 per night, I count myself...

This is a real home from home. The guest lounge is friendly and welcoming - a wood burning stove, and everything to make your stay comfortable. It's an excellent coffee shop during the day too, as well as providing for your evening meal if you want it. Handily adjacent to a prize winning fish and chip shop if you want... More
