I've just stayed two nights on business at the Baltasound Hotel on Unst. This is a very isolated location about as far North as you can get in the UK. The hotel bedrooms are clean with modern furniture. Beds are good, bathrooms have excellent showers with plenty of hot water. The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. This is... More

I stayed at the Baltasound as part of a conference group. The staff were very attentive to all of us. The food was excellent. I stayed in a cabin. As I arrived early it was a little cold at first but quickly warmed up. Cabin was small but perfect. The bed was narrower than I am used to which meant... More

We are backpacking through Scotland and decided to stay at the Baltasound Hotel while we explored Unst. Baltasound is in the middle of the island so it was a perfect location for us. We stayed in the main building, and our room was modern, spacious and very warm. The restaurant has beautiful views over the water and sheep-filled fields, which... More

This was our third visit to Baltasound Hotel and we were not disappointed. Yes, the hotel is a bit run down in places, but the owners are improving it every year. Our room was, as usual, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. I particularly liked the funky tap in the bathroom! This time we were in the main building and I... More

Myself and a colleague needed accommodation on Unst for a few nights out of season, and althought the hotel was officially closed, we were offered rooms but on a limited service. We were unsure what to expect, but were thoroughly impressed upon arrival. The owner had placed us in the main hotel building, as the weather was awful, and although... More

I came here out of season and a cabin was opened up just for me, the first sign of just how far the hosts will go to make sure you feel cared for. My cabin was ace, always warm and cosy which was just as well as it was wonderfully cold up there (February 2013, this is an incredibly belated... More

We stayed in one of the log cabins for three nights. The accomodation was very good. What we liked even more, was the delicious breakfast in a nice room with large windows, where you could watch sheep grazing. Equally delicious was dinner. We were offered a range of dishes to choose from, including a number of starters and desserts. All... More

We visited the hotel for a 2 night stay whilst on a shetland wildlife trip. We stayed in one of the log cabins .The cabin was welcoming with the room cozy and warm. We had sufficient storage space for our clothes etc for our short stay, but any longer we may have struggled.The only down size was the shower area... More

I stayed in one of the cabins for 3 nights. The cabin was cozy and kept the raging wind at bay. I suppose the bathroom (especially the shower) could be improved as it was quite cramped even for me (and I am small) but overall I found it to be fine for my short stay and more importantly, clean. The... More

We stayed in one of the cabins for 5 nights. The cabin was cozy and warm and coped with the storms really well. The bathroom could be improved, especially the dripping tap, but it was functionally and okay. Staff were very friendly and personal and made us very welcome. Food was good and we especially enjoyed the Chinese night. Slight... More
