Don't be put off by the small reception area. This hotel has a really BIG heart because of its staff - let alone its location. On our arrival we were warmly greeted and assisted with our luggage. The room was good with a bath and shower en-suite and the bed extremely comfortable. Regarding the food, this is outstanding. Freshly prepared... More

We were hungry and near Busta House, but it was almost half two so thought we'd see if they were still doing lunch. We got there and they'd stopped lunch AND hey had a wedding in full swing. However, they said: "We could do you a soup and a sandwich". Which is exactly what they said to myself and the... More

Quirky old hotel, lots of character. Bit faded at places, but this is made up for by very comfortable surroundings, truly excellent simple food and really friendly helpful staff. We ate in the pub most nights rather than the restaurant: the scallops, fish, mussels and local steak were all excellent. Can't stress enough his welcome we felt. Nothing was too... More

The service from the minute we stepped in the door was 1st class, the young Spanish lady working there is so friendly and professional she is an asset to Busta house. We experienced 2 power cuts while we were there but the staff were un phased by this and still... More

We had called in for coffee one day sightseeing and decided to give the restaurant a go when some friends joined us as the aroma from the kitchen was delightful. There is a choice of where you eat and we decided on the restaurant as it was a special occasion. Comfortable and relaxing lounge for pre dinner drinksThe choice on... More

I've stayed at The Busta hotel a couple of times and it's always offered a friendly home from home experience with helpful staff and great food. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with a TV/DVD combo unit, tea and coffee and a bath and shower. There's lovely views across the coast and peace and quiet at this old hotel. With... More

Can't recommend Busta House highly enough. Having got married in Lerwick we headed to Busta for our wedding breakfast. we had the place to ourselves and were treated like Royalty. Food was fantastic and very well priced. Have been back for a few visits and am always pleased. For Whisky lovers, try some of the staggering array at the bar... More
