Stayed here with a friend whilst touring the Orkneys & Shetlands in May 2015. It's situated in a beautiful place; Baltasound is quiet and peaceful and has the most amazing bus stop shelter! The (co) owner was very helpful and friendly and she made us feel very welcome. Checking in was quick and easy and she arranged for our bikes... More

Food is plentiful and we'll cooked. Delicious fresh local fish. My room was pretty basic but it was clean and comfortable. There was always plenty of hot water for the shower. It was August but it was cool so having the heating on was very welcome.

I can't honestly say I have stayed in the Hotel, but I have been in for food and been into the public bar. The food was wonderful - I have eaten here twice, the latest being a curry night, which I really enjoyed. The curry had that excellent homemade feel to it, and was just what I was looking for....

My father and I stayed here for a night to go up to the most northerly point in the UK and see the fantastic bird colony and spectacular cliffs. I knew that this wasn't going to be the most luxurious hotel I've ever stayed in, and it wasn't. But it was efficient and well run for what it was. The... More

Needed to stay one night in Unst, and the Baltasound Hotel looked a nice place to stay. So far, so good. We checked in to the news that there would be gala dinner there that night - car park shambles. Uugghhhh! The cabins would have been really "cultural" in Norway, but here ours was cramped and stuffy, with a bathroom... More

Our fourth visit to this Hotel. The meals served are excellent and filling. If you stay try their homemade fish n crab cakes there delightful. The staff are very friendly and make you very welcome. The chalets/ lodges you stay in are comfortable and cosy. A wonderful place in wonderful surroundings .

My friend and I stayed here for our one night on Unst during our whistle stop tour of Shetland. What a great choice! When you pull up, particularly on a gloomy, grey day, the hotel looks a little, well, unprepossessing (to put it kindly.) Do not let this put you off. This is a terrific place. It is fabulously located... More

A small hotel a short walk from the Baltasound shore, surrounded by fields, with hills to the north. I stayed in one of the rooms in the hotel building, rather than one of the chalets. The room had contemporary decoration and was clean, spacious, warm and conformable. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel has a quiet, well-stocked bar... More

The hotel consists of an unusual combination of buildings with a lot of cabins in the grounds. The sunrises and sunsets were magnificent and wildlife watching as good as anywhere in the World with otters, seals and a range of birds coming and going. It's a peaceful spot with friendly locals and attentive hotel staff. My cabin was cosy and... More

The hotel provides an excellent base for exploring the wonderful island of Unst. Our room was in one of the wooden outbuildings which form a square on the south side of the hotel. The room was clean and pine clan which cosy given the environment. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant menu had a good menu at reasonable... More
