The rooms vary but are all airy and very well appointed.Most have wonderful views over the sea loch . The rooms are... More

After a few days in lerwick and a twin room was really looking forward to a relaxing quiet place and that is what we got. It was a wild day but couldn't feel a thing inside,there was a short power cut that couldn't be helped and power was back on to enjoy shower and dinner. Dinner was a treat. After... More

Busta House Hotel is a very friendly place to go, and the staff are wonderful. If you go for a meal there, you won't be disappointed. Quality slipped earlier in the year, but now with the new management, things are up to an even better standard than before. The place looks a bit fresher, with some nice menu changes, and... More

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it so much we came back. The historical building is beautiful and the rooms are quaint and individual rather than modern, however the amenities are up to date. Big TV, free wifi, plenty tea and coffee. Cosy and welcoming bar with a simply heroic selection of single malts. Both Bar and restaurant meals... More

Stopped here as I was visiting Shetland on business, was unsure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Didn't get a room with a view but did get a huge 4 poster bed which was extremely comfortable. I didn't have any meetings the following day until the afternoon so the 12pm check out was very welcomed and nobody came... More

Fantastic location with stunning views. Rooms were very quaint and characteristic as well as being roomy and clean. The long room was a fab place for our group to gather. Breakfast was epic! We were there for a wedding and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. They were very understanding during the weekend and adapted to... More

Fresh veg or salad included. 3 sweets which were excellent, the lemon cheesecake so tasty. 2 coffees in their lovely lounge. Such a fantastic history and lovely... More

First visit, a bit shabby at first impression inside and out. Very expensive drinks. Second visit, food was very nice but the special we'd ordered had ran out, the price did not reflect presentation or quality however. Service is good but they seem to all be learning English... did not feel very appreciated upon payment and tip. Ordered 2 bottles... More

This is an excellent hotel which is central for exploring Shetland. The staff are welcoming and efficient, food is excellent and premises elegant and spotlessly clean. Our room was lovely with a view over the gardens and voe with the most comfortable bed we've ever had in a hotel. We couldn't have asked for more!
