Room was clean and warm but terribly old fashioned. In contrast a lot of money had been spent updating bathrooms, pity they stopped at just bathrooms. Staff were all very helpful especially those in the restaurant. The food was very good with a diverse menu. The cooked breakfast was excellent and I liked that the mini croissants were freshly baked... More

We stayed at this hotel during January 2015 when we visited for Up Helly Aa. We found the hotel very warm and friendly. Room was spacious, clean, comfortable and warm and the bathroom had been tastefully modernised. Food was generally good but the fillet of cod on sunblush tomato risotto was out of this world. Jane on reception was a... More

Service was ok albeit slow. Our starters were lovely and a good size but both our main courses were disgusting and inedible!! When we complained we were offered a complimentary drink but we were still charged for our food even though most of it was uneaten!! We won't be in a hurry to return there! !

Just popped in for a meal here. Can't believe the place was so quiet. Service was spot on. Views were nice and the food was simply amazing. I had the tuna cheesecake starter which was quite a surprise. and every course just outshone the last. Rich food but definitely Value for money. Absolutely worth the visit.

I was only staying 1 night in this hotel and as I arrived late I was given an upgrade. It was a large room with four poster bed and walk in shower. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was good. It is close to town and also on the bus route from the airport. I would recommend... More

Whatever translation suits you, this is a comfortable though perhaps too quiet place to stay. The room we had was remarkably cosy considering the single glazing and consequent condensation, with rather mouldy paintwork. Service was old fashioned, respectful, though by modern standard efficient. Food was good and well presented, though the chef seems to be striving for a "signature" menu.... More

Kveldsro is a norwegian word - roughly translated to "evening tranquility", and could not be more spot on for this hotel. In addition it has the best standard on rooms and service on the island! Recommended!

Stayed here one night whilst on business in the Shetlands. I could not have found a nicer place to stay. It takes a little finding as it is tucked away and access is via a narrow road, but once found well worth it. Our room was huge with a four poster bed, the bathroom was gorgeous with a double walk...
