We came to the Shetland from the USA for 9 days and 8 nights and stayed at the Busta House. We were in the Muckle Roe room and it was fantastic. It has a great sitting room and a bedroom separate with a nice bathroom. You see the water front from the sitting room. The room was very clean and... More

Having sailed from Aberdeen last Monday with Northlink Ferries, a very comfortable and interesting way to travel to the Shetlands, we based ourselves at Busta House Hotel, near Brae. On arrival, we were made to feel very welcome, tired, having had a long sail but a relatively short drive to the Hotel. Busta House is well located towards the north... More

Having read some poor reviews about this place (among many good ones as well), I wasn't sure what to expect, but as dinner options in this corner of Shetland are rare, I took the risk. However, about the two occasions when I had dinner there I have only enthusiastic comments to make. The food was tasty and luxurious (I particularly... More

Recently attended a wedding at this hotel. The staff were more than helpful with the preparations and decoration. The setting is stunning with a walled garden and views of the sea and hills. The meal was delicious and generous. I look forward to staying there on my next trop north.

a hotel full of history and character. I've read the history of Busta hotel and glad to see some of the original features of it's history are still there. First impression is that the hotel is outdated, rooms small needs redecorating, bed covers bit old . Nevertheless, the hotel,bedroom and the whole stay is so relaxing, had a very good... More

We stayed for 1 night for dinner bed and breakfast. The dinner was excellent a very good menu. Then on to the Long Room for after dinner coffee and drinks. So very relaxing where you can meet other guests or just read a book from there collection of books. The Linga Room was our bedroom with a beautiful four poster... More

Varied menu due to daily specials. Seven of us dining. Lounge was busy and warm with relaxed atmosphere. We were served by excellent staff who were friendly. Food was excellent with steaks and scallops to perfection. Fish, pork and lasagne also cooked very well. Wide range of wines and huge range of whiskeys.

Yes its a bit remote, but isnt everything in Shetland. It was exactly what we wanted. The view from our room was lovely, the whole place is a bit olde... More

We stayed 2 nights and the Busta House suited our purpose well. We wanted to explore Unst which is 2 ferry rides away and the hotel location a half hour north of Lerwick effectively gave us some extra time, while still being close enough to Lerwick and 'civilization'. (There isn't much near the hotel.) The property seems to be one... More
