My mother and I returned to Shetland in September for a week's stay. We had been to Burrastow two years ago and stayed three nights and it just was not long enough. This inn has everything we look for: beautiful location, fabulous food, and the loving care of an innkeeper who obviously takes what he does very seriously, loves what... More

Pierre and Martha quite simply couldn't do more. The food was outstanding and their home is very beautiful with turkish rugs and great areas to chill out. A wood burning stove in the living room, a library and a conservatory together with modern clean bedrooms. All facilities worked well. Just outside the sea and lovely view. The best B and... More

This was our second visit to Burrastow House - we had been wanting to return to where we got married 8 years ago and finally made it in August this year as a special treat. It was everything we had hoped for and the Vaila room in the old house with 2 adjoining rooms was perfect for us and our... More

Whilst staying in a nearby cottage, we enjoyed a superb and satisfying evening meal at Burrastow House. We were greeted by Pierre who provided a comfortable place with drinks and nibbles where we could relax before dinner and chat with the guests. Our meal was well seasoned, interesting and beautifully presented. It would be a lovely place to return to!

We were won over by the homeliness of Burrastow House. The large and elegant room we had looked out over the bay. The first morning we opened the curtains to spot an otter fishing in the bay - great to watch it from the comfort of our room. We walked from the house around the coast - some lovely coastline....

The location is superb and our rooms were clean and had some quirky and enjoyable adornment. However, the food was grim. A starter of shop bought pasta and a rough and overly acidic pesto with tasteless salad was followed by over cooked fish and potatoes with burnt leeks and "harmless" sauce. The pudding was an overly sweet cake crying out... More

There are some places where I could stay for weeks and weeks quite happily. Burrastow House is one of those places. Just as I arrived, two otters popped up in the bay a mere hundred feet or so from where I stood at my car door. That set the tone for six delightful days. About an hour drive from Lerwick,... More

We live in Shetland and always celebrate our wedding anniversary with a short stay at Burrastow; it is very special to us. Pierre Dupont and his staff are always charming and attentive but unobtrusive; the cuisine is outstanding with fresh, mostly locally-sourced produce cooked simply but perfectly - somehow it seems to be better each time we go. Over the... More

This was our 2nd visit to Burrastow. Things were just as good this time as last. Superb dinners and breakfasts, and of course the fabulous setting. Pierre is something special when it comes to devising and preparing menus each day. We met several returnees during our stay. All have been seduced by the beautiful environment, excellence of the food and... More

I loved this small hotel: the location is stunning - wildlife and coastal walk at the doorstep. The house is full of charm, the food is exquisite and the proprietor makes you feel like a guest not a client. For example there's no menu but you are treated to a three course superb and freshly prepared dinner. Breakfast of equal... More
