What a beautiful old place. And the breakfasts and Dinner in the bar were absolutely divine. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we asked about the history of the place. Busta house has a great range of reading material in the longroom and a library upstairs. The room was comfortable and the views excellent. An absolutely wonderful place... More

Visited hotel for dinner. We were made to feel very welcome. All the staff gave excellent service. The meal was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will return on our next visit to Shetland.

This is the best hotel we stayed in in the Shetlands. The property had old world charm, and the service was good. The rooms were clean and warm. Make sure you get a room overlooking the water. The food was also good without being spectacular. BUt I loved sitting in the lounge and sipping Scotch (I am on a quest... More

We stayed in a B&B on Muckle Roe while hill walking in Shetland and it was a delight to have Busta House just down the road for evening meals and drinks. On the first night we turned up not knowing what to expect. Was greeted by the manager (Grant), asked if there was any chance of a table for 'now-ish... More

Very welcoming hotel. Friendly staff and excellent food. Bedrooms a little faded but the staff and the public areas, which are full of character, more than make up for this. The hotel is in an excellent, very central location for exploring Shetland.

Having never been to Shetland before, I found the island had breathtaking views, the people were friendly and, at the end of a long day, Busta House offered one of the best business overnight stays I have ever experienced. The welcome was amazing with a guided tour up to my room; the lady could not have made me feel more... More

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

My husband and I stayed 1 night for my birthday. 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
