We decided to visit this hotel for lunch big mistake. After perusing a non inspirational menu we both chose the fish platter. Well it arrived and to be fair it was what was written in the description but the green leaves was a large quantity of iceberg lettuce, two slivers of cucumber and two small pieces of tomato and a...

We stayed recently for a couple of nights and were most happy with our experience. Our room was large with a sea view, perhaps a little on the chintzy side but it only added to the charm of the place. Grant, in particular, was most welcoming. The food was delicious, we ate both in the bar and in the restaurant... More

Busta House Hotel provides visitors with an exceptional experience, it is in itself an integral part of Shetland's rich history. Built in the reign of Elizabeth 1 of England, by the Gifford Family, the oldest part of the Hotel is the celebrated Long Room - where many people have celebrated their weddings; Queen Elizabeth 2 of England has visited Busta...

We visited this hotel just outside Brae twice for an evening meal as we didn't fancy going into Lerwick (where we were staying in Walls it was six of one and half a dozen of the other, and we like somewhere a bit quiet to eat out). We were lucky in that we managed to get a table each time... More

The highlight of our day here were the evening meals. There was a good choice of menu, and too much for most of us to eat. The hotel itself is quite old, and finding your way around the hotel could be quite a challenge. You could at least say that no two rooms were the same. Breakfast was served in... More

Stayed two nights and both were comfortable and enjoyable. Staff were outstanding and the food of a very good standard. A city centre hotel it's not. Quirky bordering on shabby in places but that all adds to the romance and warmth of the place. Loved the long room in the evening sunlight, the photography adorning the walls and the range... More

The hotel is, quite possibly, the most elegant in the Shetlands. The views are great, the garden a wonder (there are actual trees in it, nowhere to be found on the rest of the isles!) and the decor suitably Victorian (but spruced up and welcoming). The room (we had the one called Vementry) was a bit of a let down,... More

Great location and scenery in a peaceful setting. The house was unique and beautiful especially the sitting room next to the restaurant. The rooms needed a face lift and some TLC. Breakfast's were ok, dinners were good. Service was friendly and efficient.

Al the staff were very welcoming and enthusiastic and at all times polite. Food was good and plenty of it. A varied menu so something to suit all tastes. I would be very happy to stay here again. Altogether a good experience.

We were disappointed with our 2 day stay. This hotel needs owners who care about their guests, Noone asked us what we had done or what we were thinking about doing. The rooms are a bit tired - cracked sink, damp patch in ceiling. The food was ok but rather expensive for what it was, we had a fish supper... More
