Booked the Corbie at short notice from Gillian and Steve for a week getaway. Location is in the center of town but noise is not a problem at all. The property is nice and big and easily accommodates upto five people. Spotless and clean throughout. Hire a car and you are within an hours drive of the whole island. Great... More

Stayed here in September 2014 whilst visiting our student nurse daughter, but due to ill health was unable to comment before now. Spotless accommodation with exceptional attention to detail. Shetland is a collection of lovely islands well worth visiting and Self Catering Shetland is the ideal base from which to do so. Well done to you both!

Having had a full-on three days in Orkney where the accommodation was second-to-none, I knew there would be a hard act to follow in Shetland. However, upon booking "Tystie" at The Decca, I'd already had a friendly e-mail from Gillian and Steve with details on how to reach them and mobile numbers for me to call when I left the... More

The accommodation just perfect for our needs, 2 adults, away for weekend, close to friends who stay in South Whiteness. Clean, comfy, friendly owners, welcome pack of milk and beer! Up to date whats on in area, rucksack with flask and maps. We were being ferried by friends, but car hire was really reasonable. Fab weekend will be back

Stayed in the apartment for a long weekend at the end of September. Apartment is great, 5 minutes drive from the centre of Lerwick, clean and comfy with a Large car park. Staff were really nice and helpful. Only down side is you need a car as it's out of the town, you could easily walk the distance but the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us last September - we are glad you enjoyed yourselves and your stay with us. From the end of September to March, the walk into town can be less favourable, between weather and short daylight hours.... Hopefully we shall see you again - Gillian & Steve :-) More

I stayed in the Tirrick, a one bed apartment in The Decca from 25-29 Jan. It is a great place to stay, just on the edge of Lerwick but within a 30min walk of the centre of town, and a short and not too expensive taxi ride if you don't fancy the walk (£5-7). The Tirrick was a beautiful apartment,... More

The Decca is perfect. We stayed in Skooty Allan. Everything you need is there, or if not, the owners provide if you ask. We live in Shetland but we were attending a function on the mainland so needed somewhere to stay. I can't think of any negatives to staying here. It was well maintained, comfortable and had lots of little... More

The Decca is a great place to base yourself. Sitting on the outskirts of Lerwick. A well laid out and maintained apartment. Fully equipped with everything you would need. A nice little touch is the 'walkers pack' a rucksack with flask, maps etc. When we arrived Steve explained everything and gave us valuable information on places to visit and how... More

booked into this apartment when I could not get my regular accommodation booked. I was not disappointed . Clean, spacious, well maintained. Could not have asked for any more. Tea and coffee and milk were provided. Also some cookies and a local beer to try.
