We spent a very enjoyable night at the Baltasound hotel for my birthday. Rooms were warm and comfortable. Dinner was delicious, chef had even baked a chocolate birthday cake at the request of our daughter. Staff were friendly and fun. I would highly recommend a stay here specially as hotel is all on one level which made it very accessible... More

We've just spent 3 nights at the hotel,our 2nd visit in the past 2 years. The dinners and breakfasts have been excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive. Last nights 'taster menu' was,by the amount of people in attendance 'a great success and good value. It's unlikely we will return,but we take away good memories of a good hotel... More

It was a only a brief 1-night stay for business, out of season. But Amie and the staff couldn't have made me feel more welcome, both during the booking process and the stay itself. The Unst salmon that was served in the restaurant was (by far) the best salmon I have ever tasted. Everything was perfect for my brief stay,... More

I visited the Baltasound Hotel whilst visiting my family who live in Baltasound Unst, the most northerly inhabited island of the Shetlands. I only ate at the restaurant and did not stay there overnight. The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and greeted us on arrival. The restaurant was quite busy on a Saturday lunch time. We were seated... More

This hotel on the most northerly island in the Shetland ring is a very agreeable place to stay. Good food, pleasant helpful staff and clean warm bedrooms in the outdoor chalet accommodation. The village with its well stocked shop and post office is 5 minutes walk away. Holidaying on the island of Unst is the pastime of people who love... More

We spent 2 nights at the Baltasound hotel and could find no fault. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, our room was spotless, cozy and comfortable and perfect to retire to after a long hike. And the food was excellent, we had dinner there both nights. And there were numerous breakfast options. Only minor complaint was that maybe the... More

We spent two nights here during our visit to Shetland. We had been to Unst once before but couldn't explore much without staying on the island. We had one of the chalet units around the courtyard. Small but clean and efficient, with a small porch. Breakfasts were very good - we didn't have dinner at the hotel, as there's a... More
